I have recently developed what (I suspect) is a severe tree nut allergy. I was in the ER last week with an anaphylactic reaction. Since then I have gotten an epi pen, am on steroids, trying an elimination diet, etc. My current concern is that my throat is still very raw, swollen, and painful feeling. It still feels like I have a lump in it, sometimes more than others. Is this normal following a severe allergic reaction? It has gotten a little better, but doesn't really feel close to normal yet. Then again, it has only been a week. Has anyone else experienced this? Should I just wait it out? Is this even related to my allergic reaction? I am having trouble getting any real answers on this from doctors. Any help would be appreciated.
