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

    • First thing - if you want to continue testing for Celiac disease, you need to be eating a regular gluten containing diet. That said, any dietary change can get your system in a funk.  
    • Hey there! Welcome to the club you never wanted to be a part of. Boy, you are certainly throwing yourself one heck of a bang up pity party aren't you? PLEASE do not take that as a put down! I don't think there is a single solitary one of us who hasn't thrown ourselves at least 1 pity party. I know I've thrown at least 3. Oh, & crying meltdowns in the grocery store? Every one has been there, done that one too. It's all part of the process just like cyclinglady said. Ravenwoodglass is right on too about how it can mess with your head. Boy! Can it ever mess with your head! You really have been given excellent info. by all who have answered. I want to touch on something that hasn't been addressed yet but you mentioned it and that is kissing. You might call me an old lady as I'm just shy of 60 but I'm also a child of the 60's so remember that when you read what I'm going to tell you. BTW, I'm married to the same person, my only marriage, for 43 years. Anyone who cuts & runs because they have to brush their teeth before kissing you is not worth 2 minutes of your time and you are well rid of them! Be thankful that you have this "screening tool" because it will save you a lot of wasted time. If they won't even give you a chance when they hear about the precautions you have to take then they aren't worth a damn! Imagine someone like that standing by your side when times get tough. You can't can you? That's because they won't and you want a true partner who will support you and hang in there through the challenges we face in life & believe me, you will both face many life challenges.  Cooking. You don't have to be a gourmet. Cook simple. You know how to boil & scramble & fry eggs right? Only takes a couple minutes. Veggies? Aw heck, nuke 'em OR throw them on a baking pan spritz them with olive oil & spices of your choice & stick them in the oven. Smoothies are easy. Fresh fruit is well, fresh fruit - easy - peel it & eat it or just pop it in your mouth. Sweet potatoes can be nuked too & are wonderful for you. Salads are easy. Nut butters are a great source of protein. Karen had some great examples in her post too. Her "attitude adjustment" tips are great as well.  
    • Hi I'm still being tested. Got some blood drawn recently. My rheumatologist suspects celiac. I've been sick for a while with all sorts of symptoms. I've started a gluten free diet as my doctor told me try for 1-2 months to see if it helps. I've already had the blood drawn while I was eating gluten. My question is. Is it normal to have painful digestion and fishers when just recently quitong gluten? I've been gluten free only a mere two days. I know it takes time. But seems a bit worse? Is that normal?
    • I was only asking because when ferritin is low that you can experience hair loss/fatigue etc. even if your other iron levels are in range. This just happened to me so I thought I would share just in case it helps you. Ferritin should be above 50 to be optimal, not just "in range."  I've been on iron supplements and much better now. This may not be your problem at all, but I would have them check your ferritin levels. Low iron or anemia is common with celiac. The ferritin test is measuring how much iron is stored in your body. FYi: Iron binding capacity is really telling you how much protein your liver is making in order to carry that iron around. Usually, iron binding capacity will be higher in the range when iron is low. Edit: Also my blood pressure was low when my ferritin level got very low.
    • Hello I'm happy to join, any help is greatly appreciated as it can be difficult by times for sure. Unfortunately, I have been told my doctor has definitely not been doing anything correctly and very backwards about Alot of things. I live in canada, and there are celiac support groups I have found but I am about 2 hours away from any. I live in a pretty rural area. Although,  I have still received some help from them , they prefer a diagnosis before helping out to much. My doctor has me on a waiting list to see a gastrointestinal specialist but whenever I called her office to inquire about an appointment time I was told there was a very long wait and that I was considered to be a non emergency. So I am waiting to get an appointment. I have seen a dermatoligist for some of my rashes and she said it was dermatitis and gave me different creams for them.  It is frustrating because I don't know how to go about getting a actual diagnosis besides this biopsy. I was told to request a different specialist, but supposedly there is a waiting period for most in our area.
