Allergies board

Aspirin can cause angioedema which is what you are discribing. The next reaction can be worse and cause throat swelling. Doctors don't like to call it an aspirin allergy, they call it a sensitivity, but I have the same symptoms with it as you and I also developed reactions to non steroidal meds and yellow dye #5.

Anyone can become allergic to anything at any time and it isn't anything to fool around with. The reactions become progressively worse. I ended up in a hospital for several days and on prednisone for over a month.
