I have trouble breathing and get heart palpitations when eating. Is this an allergic reaction?

In brief: 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.
