After eating air pop popcorn, i get sick. I get an upset stomach. It gets very painful. It didn't use to be this way. Could i now be allergic?

After eating salty foods like chips or popcorn my lips, tongue and throat swell up. Sometimes hard to breath. What could i be allergic to? Is it bad?
It May be Serious: You need to stop eating these foods and see an allergist for an evaluation. You may be very allergic to something, either the food itself or possibly a preservative.
