Hi there.
Thank you for your question.
I will be helping you out with your concerns today.
I am sorry to hear about your problem.
If your symptoms are severe then you must go to the emergency to have this investigated and treated further.
You mentioned "your throat is closing up" which could potentially cause breathing problems and is precisely the reason why I would recommend that you be seen in the emergency to have this evaluated ASAP.
