... felt like the food got stuck in my esophagus. I could not swallow. It was quite frightening. Could there be a connection to the medication?
Were your nasal passages swollen? Your mouth, tongue? It sounds like a possible allergic reaction. I recommend you not take it again. Here are the ingredients in Benadryl: acetaminophen, diphenhydramine, and phenylephrine.If you've had any of these ingredients with no reaction, you're not allergic to them. For the ingredients you've never tried before, you could check all over-the-counter meds and prescriptions for these ingredients and avoid them.
Phenylephrine can make you feel jumpy or nervous. Diphenhydramine can make you sleepy, despite the "phen"(a stimulant) in the name. Acetaminophen is Tylenol, often seen in pain meds like hydrocodone, oxycodone, etc. It's listed as "APAP". You can ask the doc to lower the amount of acetaminophen in pain medicine, or ask for ibuprofen instead of acetaminophen.
