Re: Possible allergy to powder fiber.
When psyllium fiber products first came out there were some nasty incidents of choking, esp. at nursing homes.
If fiber powder is NOT dissolved in adequate water, and not followed by additional water, a mass can can lodge in the throat, swell up, and cause choking.
My son uses some Fiberchews that are like Necco Wafer Candies, w/only 2 grams of fiber per chew. They use a different fiber -- not psyllium -- and they may be one option for you to try.
Psyllium allergies also do exist ...
