Throat and back pain, breathlessness on eating chicken, sharp pain in lungs on eating chocolates. Food allergies?

hi, I m 14 years old.. sometimes when I eat chicken I get this pain in the back of my throat , back and sometimes both.. I feel like I m not getting enough air.. as if one lung is blocked or something. It does scare me.. even with boneless chicken this can happen. It can sometimes happen with other meat, but rarely does. Sometimes when I m eating other foods like choclate or biscuits I get a sharp pain near my right lung. I have not went to a doctour. I feel as though I meant sound stupid saying this. hope to hear back soon. thank you.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic.

Chicken meat allergy is quite rare, and your list of reactions to foods such as chocolates, and other meats might suggest a histamine-release process that occurs with these foods.
Check on the list of foods high in histamine and you will find that these are the culprit foods.

You can always a blood test done for specific IgE against chicken, mutton, cocoa, milk, wheat and I am sure they will be negative. I am presuming you do not have any pollen allergies.
Keep an antihistamine such as cetirizine 10mg tablet handy and take 2 tablets when you feel the throat itching with foods again.

Best Wishes.
