Does Anyone's Throat Burn If They Eat Something They Shouldn't?
0

3 posts in this topic

I'm not supposed to have nightshades - tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant and green peppers. I know I'm not supposed to have them but my reaction isn't like it is to gluten so I do cheat sometimes. If I eat a massive amount I will get a stomach ache and D, but I usually have to eat like a whole bowl of spaghetti sauce to have a problem. Tomatoes are especially hard because I love salsa and tomato sauce and there really isn't a substitute for those things.

So, when I eat something with one of those items my throat immediately starts burning. I had some baked beans the other day and there is tomato in the sauce and my throat burned the entire time I ate them. It is almost like a warning signal. If only my body did that with gluten I would never get glutened because I would know it whatever I was eating was contaminated.

Does this happen to anyone else?

One of the first reactions I get is almost immediate (when I ingest gluten). My throat starts to burn, and it get really hard to swallow. I know then that I am in trouble!

I have a lot of allergies, and throat/mouth burning/itchiness/tingling is most often how I know if I've eaten something I shouldn't. With some foods, the reaction basically stops there although I sometimes get a few hives too. With other foods, I might develop other symptoms . . . in the worst case scenario, vomiting/nausea, involuntary gagging, major breathing difficulties, face swelling . . .

So, yeah, I take throat tingling as a warning sign. I'd suggest going to an allergist for testing. I know that some folks can have a pretty severe tomato allergy. If it is an IgE mediated allergy, the reaction can be unpredictable.

    • Would a coeliac screen be the same as a test for antibodies, then? I have no idea why it was even included in my list of tests. It could be my brother, or my symptoms, or both - regardless, I can't say I know too much about the testing.  It's possible that my brother has coeliac disease, I really do worry about it sometimes. He was told to follow a strict low-FODMAP diet by his doctor, and eventually my parents stopped caring. Occasionally they will remind him not to eat things like pasta, greasy foods, etc. because of his condition, but by and large they don't care. He basically just eats whatever he wants. I'm not sure if it affects him or not. However, he isn't shorter than other family members - my dad is 183cm, and my brother is 178cm at the age of 14. Our mother is 173cm.  I do think I have bad digestion, yes. I get gassy and very bloated often, as well as constipated phases (and then following that, diarrhea phases.)  I have tried to ask my mum to call the doctor to get the tests done, but I'm hesitant to mention anything to do with gluten as I know they won't believe me, solely because a good friend of mine has celiac disease. I know they'll think I'm doing it for attention, or to be trendy, when in actual fact I'm just tired of being sick and having no explanation for it other than diet. I'm positive it's not dairy, as I was vegan for a couple of months at one stage. When I went back to eating animal products, I had no issues whatsoever. 
    • He had the IgG ELISA done as well as other blood panels, fecal and saliva tests. He is on an elimination diet right now where foods that score above 0.2 are eliminated for 2-6 months depending on the score, then added back slowly after the detox period.  I am aware that there is a lot of controversy over the IgG, and I'm not here to go into that issue, but I can say with certainty that eliminating the additional foods he reacted to has seen a huge reduction in the symptoms that persisted after cutting gluten and dairy. We will be attempting to add rice back in around October, and see how he does but until then I still need a solution for a baking mix.  I tried to wing it a bit with pumpkin bread today and my attempt was okay but not great. The loaf sank a bit and was overly chewy.  So, to my original question....recipes?
    • Ask the doctor's office!  But usually you can eat right after if you feel like it.  But ask them!  Some of them will try to give you crackers, so you may want to bring some gluten-free applesauce or Rice Chex
    • I'm wondering if he doesn't have an oat problem. He was only dx'd several months ago and really shouldn't use oats for a year after dx. Just thinking out loud. I too am wondering how the rice was picked out of all those other flours to be determined to be affecting him.
    • How were the allergies diagnosed? I only ask because it's highly usually to be allergic to it.
