When the sensation of not being able to take a deep breath/trying to yawn started I thought maybe its the chia seed but dismissed it. I just started using it again along with hemp seed and flax seed and my breathing is noticeably worse!!
I hope it turns out to be the case, i am convinced it is more to do with my stomach and the bloating then my throat. It definatley sounds like you also have a reaction to the high fiber in your diet. I wonder how many more sufferers are possibly having an intolerance to the fiber in their diets.

Good luck and i hope it turns out to be chia seeds for you as at least knowing what is causing your symptoms means that we can hopefully find a solution.
