Possibly: A thorough evaluation by an allergy & immunology specialist might be able to accurately exclude this possibility. Pulmonary function testing would likely be needed for this diagnosis. Do not seek an allergists opinion without bringing a dietary diary recording the foods that were eaten prior to the onset of your symptoms. Food allergy testing would be dictated by your diary.

No: But you should see your doctor.
