I am 30 years old, fit, and healthy. Approximately 5 months ago I had a physical which was comprised of various blood work which resulted in no abnormalities. However, recently while having brunch with a group of friends, I had a strange experience. I was eating egg whites and potatoes doused with Cholula hot sauce. For the record, I am no stranger to hot sauce. I use it almost daily. I’m also frequently eat Mexican food. While I was eating, I experienced a strange sensation in my throat. I began to cough and found it difficult to breath through my mouth. I attempted to drink some water and breath through my nose. My attempts at breathing sounded like wheezing. After a few seconds, I was able to breath normally again. Later that day, I went to the gym and experienced no difference in my condition. For dinner, I had Mexican food with Cholula simply to see what would happen. I didn’t experience anything strange. One symptom I did experience was an almost burning sensation in my throat. Is this an isolated occurrence or should I be worried? I also feel it’s important to note that in my 30 years of life I’ve never experienced asthmatic symptoms or been diagnosed as having Asthma or Acid Reflux.
