| | swollen throat due to allergies
i'm going to try to explain this the best that I can.
I am 21 and just started getting season allergies two years ago - this is the third year i've had them. This year, it started out at the same time and the same as always. Sneezing a lot, stuffy head, nose running constantly and just a little dizzy. Well the other day, my mother was burning some old hay after cleaning out the barn and after being around it for just a couple of minutes, I went into the house and my throat started swelling up. Not enough to make me gasp for air, but enough so i could feel almost a lump in my throat when I would swallow saliva. I took 1 benadryl pill and it took care of it.
Now, i'm on a regular dosage of taking benadryl around the clock, and my sneezing and all regular symptoms are gone, but i still have a lumpish thing in my throat. I don't have any trouble breathing, but swallowing can be rough and it scares me. I should mention i have hypothyroidism and I'm beggining to think it's my goiter that is enlarged. But can the alergies have an affect on my goiter? Should I see a doctor if it doesn't clear up soon? Thanks.
