I'm 18, and I have been having a weird reaction to chocolate since I was aroud 9-10 years old.
The type of chocolate doesn't matter (white, black, milk) nor does its form.
This doesn't occure everytime I eat chocolate, and may be at my first bite or after quite a few bites.
What happens is that at some point when I put the chocolate in my mouth I will suddenly have a sensation of burning in my throat, so bad that I can't breathe at anymore. My reaction is to swallow saliva repeatedly, and after around 5 seconds it stops and I can breathe fine and eat more chocolate.
I'm not sure about this, but allong with the burning sensation, I think my throat tightens up a little.
I haven't seen anything of this sort on the internet, and my doctor didn't really know what it could be. She said it seemed like a chocolate allergy.
But the thing is that the other day I ate some turkish kind of sweets, in which there was no chocolate, and it happened again. But this time it was a lot worse. I was alone in my room and it really scared me this time. It didn't last too long, and stopped as soon as I spat the sweet out. It also made me feel like I was going to throw up.
Do you have any idea of what this could be?
I thought it might be due to a reaction of the acid and sugar in my throat or something as I have had gastritis since I was 14.
Thanks for your help and have a nice day.
