What do I do now?

I've been trying for years to figure out what's up with me. A few years ago, I found out I've got Asperger's, but that knowledge didn't help me fix this major issue.

Checked off 57 boxes. But how do I treat it? At least just my mouth and nose... I just want to be able to eat like a normal person... I want to be able to stay in a room with perfectly normal food and not have my throat close and start choking me... I want to be able to eat something healthier than a diet consisting entirely of pizza, pasta and macaroni & cheese... I'm 27 years old, and when I see someone pull out a small paper bag or some Tupperware, I get the biggest jolt of fear... "What am I about to be forced to smell? Is it going to choke me? Is it going to burn my throat?"

The sleep schedule issues are annoying, but I can live with that. I've almost got it... None of the other issues are a huge annoyance (How often am I gonna write something by hand in this decade, for example?) But there's nothing I know of that I can even attempt to do for my mouth and nose, and it's a huge life restricting issue!

I'll search for more information on this, and hope that there's SOMETHING I can do...
