    Hi all,

    I'm after a bit of advice please. I'm now on day 6 of the diet, and I'm noticing something odd. After I have my shakes, my throat feels like its starting to swell, and I'm finding it really difficult to swallow. I first noticed this on day 3, but kind of put it to the back of my mind. It seems to be getting worse though, and I'm starting to get a bit worried. I've never experienced any sort of food allergy, but I'm assuming that if I was allergic to something in the packs the reaction would be more severe.

    Has anyone experienced anything similar? Apart from that I feel OK- not hungry at all, a bit tired maybe but OK. I know I've lost a good few pounds already, and am desperate to keep going because in some ways, this is the easiest diet ever! Any advice gratefully received

    Nicky

    I personally never had this but I seem to remember someone posting about this before and apparently it is to do with ketosis........although don't quote me on it!

    Kind of, more like its steadily closing up. I mentioned it to a work colleague after my breakfast shake, and she said it looks as though my throat/ neck was swollen- I'm not sure though. It went down after a few hours, but within 5-10 minutes of finishing my lunchtime shake it was back again. It's really unpleasant, like someone is slowly strangling me!

    I'm probably being silly, but I haven't had my 3rd pack as the feeling hasn't quite subsided and I'm struggling to even get my water down at the moment

    The blocked throat feeling was what I was replying to.

    If it feels and looks swollen I would maybe ring the pharmacist tomorrow and check with them, or contact Lipotrim.

    Thanks for the responses so far. I'm hoping this is nothing out of the ordinary, but I'm considering giving NHS Direct a call. The only thing is I'm worried they might tell me to stop drinking the shakes, and I really don't want to do that!

    I'm going to make my 3rd shake and see how I get on, because I'm starting to feel a bit giddy and I don't usually leave it this late

    Ah, cross posted there. I'm struggling to find any threads mentioning this- do they say how long it might last?

    Thanks Kels, I've been drinking through a straw today anyway, as I thought it might help. I'm pleased it sounds like nothing to worry about, other than being a pain in the bum. I'll keep an eye on it though, and check it out if it persists.

    Hi nicky...

    Is it possible your getting a throat infection??

    Personnally I would consult your doctor.. Isnt the feeling of your throat closing over what happens to people who have a nut allergy?

    I would check to be on the safe side chick xxx

    Hmm, never thought about a throat infection- I've never had one before so that could be a possibility. I'm not allergic to nuts, or indeed to any food I don't think.

    Thanks everyone for the advice- I did experience the same thing again after my last shake; who knows what's going on? I'm less worried now though, but I will definitely have a chat with the pharmacist when I get weighed (have to wait till day 8 though, as I can't make it down there tomorrow).

    If it gets any worse though I will definitely speak to the doctor, just in case

    Hi Nicky,
    Sorry you are having a difficulty but even if you can't see your pharmacist, please ring them. It's wise to get things checked out, even if it is just to put your mind to rest. I haven't experienced what you have but I am allergic to the soup, lips swelled and felt like razor blades in them. Wishing you all the best with it.

    To be honest i would see your pharmacist asap.....if you can drink other things with no ill effects then speak to them soon. Better safe than sorry!
