  • It sounds like an allergy. that is how my throat gets when i take aspirin or aspirin products. do you also get really hot?

  • I'm not sure, but if your throat is tightening, don't ingest any more and talk to your doctor. You CAN develop an allergy out of the blue.

  • no not hot decker. just weird restriction feeling. (thank god right?)

    yes i stopped taking the tums because i thought i was having a reaction to that. it was only tonight that the gum did the same thing. blah!
