Welcome Anon,

I apologize for the late reply, but did find this Lemongrass Overview to look over. I am not a medical professional, but it is possible to be allergic to almost anything I have noticed, so I wouldn't rule this out. It you experience this reaction again, make sure to journal everything that you consumed as well as your surroundings. Hopefully, you will be able to pinpoint the cause of your reaction. If you have any trouble breathing, please make sure to seek a medical professional immediately. Take care!
Best Wishes! Amelia
