I'm a hot sauce fiend, and part of the territory is gradually building up a tolerance to the pain of hotter and hotter stuff, so these days, a few tablespoons of sambal sauce and a few more of thai chiles are beginning to lack some kick, but I've noticed a weird reaction lately. Whenever I eat a fair amount of that stuff, the mouth doesn't burn (it's more of a pleasant warmth) but my throat feels like it's closing up for a while afterward. No swelling anywhere or other weird feeling. It's more like that inflamed throat feeling just before you start getting a cold.
Anyone had a similar reaction?
