Burning in throat could be delayed poison from parents?

User Profile
Ok, let me try to put this in chronological order the best I can.

4 months ago:

I like to drink Gatorade, it is one of my favorite drinks. One day though, I have a cup and immediately noticed something was wrong. It tasted horrible and I though there may be something in it. So, I poured out the whole bottle to act like a drank it all.

3-4 months ago:

Nothing in refrigerator to drink. Dad usually keeps it stocked. Only thing let was some soy milk. Dad randomly asks me,"Do you ever drink the soymilk?", while pointing to the soymilk. I said no(I usually don't). Thristy, I poured myself a glass. I had one sip and immediately noticed something was wrong. It started to burn my throat. At tis point my throat is burning and I find it somewhat harder to breath.

3-4 months ago:

Dinner time. Mom suddenly acts weird and leaves house acting as if she is "tired of eating spaghetti". It is only me and my dad eating at the table. Have some spaghetti. Later, the spaghetti ends up buring my throat.

1.5 months ago:

Parents fix a large Chinese dinner. We never have Chinese. They fix shrimp egg rolls, egg-drop soup, chow mein, and rice. We all start off with egg-drop soup and egg rolls. I'm a fast eater and end up being the first one to have any of the chow mein. The chow mein tasted !**@! disgusting, so I didn't eat much. I start feeling weird (heart beating out of my chest, dissociated, etc.) and go back to my room. I start to think that they have put something in it. I go back downstairs to check. I realize I'm the only one to have chow mein. Oh crap moment. I go back to my room and call emergency services. I go back to dinningroom and tell my parents I feel weird. They tell me to sit down. Emergency services arrives. Pulse is about 140. I tell them I had just eaten. Emergency services asks my mom what we had eaten, she says "shrimp eggrolls and egg drop soup." She didn't mention the chow mein or rice. She suggests that it could be the MSG that caused it. I tell them that we also had chow mein and rice. She quickly glances over at me. Oh crap moment. I end up going to the hospital. They do an EKG and a drug test. EKG looked ok and drug test was negative for drugs. They did give me an IV of something. I improve a few hours after the incident.

Ever since the last incident, I have been constantly plagued with anxiety. So much so that is starting to control my life. I did have some anxiety leading up to the incident but not to the degree I have now. Also, ever since the incident, I have been eating all my meals out.

Is there a poison that takes a few months to kill? I really do believe my parents could have given me something.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms that you describe can be attributed to gastritis, and esophageal reflux if caused due to certain food items that can aggravate gastritis. Consider visiting a gastroenterologist if worried to discuss your symptoms. Get started on further treatment as appropriate (based on evaluation results) for better symptoms control. No parent would poison their child, and the incidents that you experienced could be your body’s response to the ‘new food stuff’ that you ate around that time.
Take care.

You suffer from severe schizophrenia if you believe your parents are trying to poison you and you need phsycological help.

Stop thinking your parents are poisoning you, sorry to be harsh but how would you like it if someone was paranoid you had poisoned them. Show respect to your parents. All you had a panic attack as you thought you were poisoned which made you ring the emergency services.

This is the most disrespectful question ever.

And for the burning its just acid reflux which can be treated with over the counter tablets and medicines.

Its good to be paranoid but not this much. Please do get some help from a psychiatrist.

I would say that it is a little bit much to jump right to the idea that someone is trying to poison you. There are a number of reasons that you could be experiencing a burning in your throat. It could be acid reflux, gastrointestinal problem, or even a small allergic reaction to an ingredient in all of those things that you believe have been poisoned. Have you done something that would make your parents want to poison you? It seems to me that you are a bit paranoid if you believe that your parents are out to kill you.
