You could have an allergy to gluten as well as celiac disease, I dunno but with allergies your throat swells up. You could also have Strep tghrouat

Have you had your thyroid tested? Could be that, I know that is one of the things they say could be a sign of hypothyroid....get it checked, it's a simple blood test.

I have had the same symptom as you, feeling like there is a lump in my throat and I can't seem to swallow it down. Also, my throat burns. Attached is a copy of symptoms listed on Celiac.com, and it includes the throat.....

What are the symptoms of celiac disease?

There is no typical celiac. Individuals range from having no symptoms (asymptomatic or "latent" forms of the disease) to extreme cases where patients present to their physicians with gas, bloating, diarrhea, and weight loss due to malabsorption.

In between these two extremes lie a wide variety of symptoms that include:

Diarrhea

Constipation

Steatorrhea (fatty stools that float rather than sink)

Abdominal pain

Excessive gas

Any problem associated with vitamin deficiencies

Iron deficiency (anemia)

Chronic fatigue

Weakness

Weight loss

Bone pain

Easily fractured bones

Abnormal or impaired skin sensation (paresthesia),

Including burning, prickling, itching or tingling

Edema

Headaches*

Peripheral Neuropathy* (tingling in fingers and toes)

Individuals have reported such varied symptoms as:

White flecks on the fingernails

Fuzzy-mindedness after gluten ingestion

Burning sensations in the throat

Usually, when I get the throat constriction feeling, I also get the pain in my flanks in the back, just below my shoulder blades...... It is a scary feeling.....

Hope this helps....

Also, below is a post that I have copied and pasted (I don't know how to do the quote stuff here yet!!!), but it also mentions the throat.....

This is a post from Lily on this forum:

There are so many symptoms, but of course everyone is different. I have lots of joint pain, huge mood swings (I'll feel happy one minute and the next like I could cry my eyes out for no reason). When the contamination is at it's worst, I get terrible migraines and can't function. I have acid reflux when my duodenum swells up, it pushes on my ribs and gives me back pain as well. Not to mention the normal bloating, gassiness, diarrhea and sometimes constipation. I also have trouble swallowing like there is a lump in my throat. I wake up many mornings like I have a hangover, however I don't drink! Hope this helps you

Lily

I hope Lily didn't mind that I copied the post and moved it over here - just wanted to show you there are celiacs with this symptom....

Have a great day!

Karen

    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.
    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
