I think I have an allergy to something I eat but I am not sure what? my Doctor said it is anxiety, but I know it is not. Some days I am o.k. but then my voice will go slightly hoarse and tremulous as though I am straining to talk. I have had my vocal cords checked and all is o.k., and was told it is probably an allergy. But finding out what it is, is the problem. Can you help’

Note: This is my opinion and is not to be taken as qualified medical advice.
You can start off by checking the Self-Testing for Food Allergies article on this site.
If you can, visit an allergist or a doctor who practices environmental medicine.
I’m not a doctor, but honestly, I do not believe that anxiety is a disease. It is a symptom of something. If you do have any anxiety, it could be a symptom of an allergy.
If you do not experience anxiety, then your doctor is just guessing, and it is not a guess based on listening to you. In this case it would be worth finding a doctor who listens and provides sensible advice!
I hope this helps.
