Closed Throat/ Lump In Throat Feeling
0

10 posts in this topic

Hi, recently diagnosed with wheat, oat, barley, eggs, soy allergies. Allergist didnt mention celiac term to me at all.

I have cut out all of the aforementioned products and the vicious rash and diarrhea went away.

Acupuncture really helped with rash.

Now I am dealing with this annoying and constant lump in my throat feeling. No reflux, heartburn, etc issues.

This feeling will not disappear! So annoying- not sleeping, constantly swallowing, ick!!!

Not sure what my next step should be.

Going to a new GP/ gastro guy next week- terrified of drs btw...

Any suggestions for blood tests, etc would be greatly, greatly appreciated.

thanks,

Jill

Jill,

Make sure you get checked for things like infected tonsels, swollen glands and epiglottis infection, even tumors (heaven forbid). Don't assume it is allergy/celiac related. An ENT (ear, nose and throat) doc might also be a good avenue to explore if your other docs don't come up with good ideas.

Hey Steve, thanks for the advice. I am not feeling at all sick in any way but I won't discount your suggestions. Since I am more aware of how I am feeling these days, I do notice that this closed up feeling has occurred in the past and I am trying to pinpoint as to when it might be happening and if it is related to an allergy/food reaction-issue.

thanks again,

Jill

Thyroid....

Make sure you get a full Thyroid Test done. That includes Free T4, Free T3 and Thyroid Antibodies. Go to www.stopthethyroidmadness.com I had that lump as you describe. Dr did all the cancer checks and had no reasons for it. She kept telling me my Thyroid was 'normal'. I eventually got copies of my tests , and found she had been testing ONLY ...TSH.... So make sure you get all the tests done, and get your paperwork and make sure that your results are completely normal and don't just take a Drs opinion of it. Drs can be wrong .... And most Drs don't understand Thyroid. I have had 3 Endos and 10 Drs over a 30 years time span that did not understand my autoimmune Thyroid - so be aware.... My current Dr is great - she has Hashimotos Thyroid herself, and had to train herself off the Internet and with expensive Conferences AFTER she was a dr. The Endos also gave her the run around when she was trying to get diagnosed..

GERD also causes that feeling as well. I would get it checked it out though.

I forgot to say that my throat is fine now. Eventually I had the full thyroid blood tests and an ultrasound that showed an enlarged multinodular thyroid ( goitre). It took about 8 weeks of changing Drs and getting appts etc - to reach this stage. All that time I could barely swallow and my voice was husky. I could only eat rice... After going onto Armour Thyroid - the Goitre eventually went away and a ultrasound done a couple of months ago showed that the swelling had gone and that all the nodules had disappeared. Luckily I started Armour before the nodules grew large. :)

My DD has been diagnosed with eosinophilic esophagitis which is inflammation in her throat, probably caused by an allergic reaction. Diagnosis involves multiple biopsies taken in different areas of the esophagus to rule out GERD and to count the number of eosinophils in each area. This is a relatively rare disease but is being diagnosed more each year. Not all GI doctors know about this disease and it can be tricky to do the biopsies the correct way. Most often, they put you on reflux medicine prior to checking for EE to see if that may be causing the problem.

www.apfed.org has information on eosinophilic esophagitis.

reflux can cause that sensation in your throat----even if you don't get heartburn. i deal with this on a regular basis.

I used to get that feeling too. I had a goiter and was put on synthroid. My thyroid was like 3 times the normal size. It is much better now.

My haital hernia is giving me a sore throat , strachty feeling, lost of voice, pressure on my left breast. I didn't realize how swollen my throat was until I change my blood pressure medicine. At that point my throat swelling changed. For awhile it was thought it was the cause of my problem. Alas, it turned out to be my hernia is back. The endoscope did not show the hernia; but a barium swallow did.

    • Testing After Celiac Disease if IgA deficient
      Is Tissue Transglutaminase IgG one of the tests that can be done (I am guessing that is what TTG IGG stands for). Please correct me if I am wrong.
      Thank you.

      I'm afraid to say I don't really think it is normal Richie, but I do recognise the shakiness and nausea you speak of, as I've been there. (Pre-diagnosis), my shakiness was so bad, my muscles were very weak and couldn't walk without the aid of a walking stick, my ferritin levels were so very, very low and had to take iron tablet every day for months. My hair was falling out, I had really bad digestional issues, amongst other things. I think you should lay off the coffee and the barley drink and all gluten/wheat, because until you do, your body is not going to repair itself properly. Damage is done to the gut even if you don't have gastrointestinal issues, as not all coeliacs have symptoms, but the damage is still being done to the gut, which in turn can cause osteoporosis, other auto-immune diseases and also cancer.  If you ever get a test for coeliac disease, you need to be eating gluten/wheat for at least 6 weeks on a daily basis in order for it to set of the immune response in your body, which will cause a positive result. (Blood tests are less reliable than endoscopy with biopsies - bare this in mind).  You may decide of course not to have a test for coeliacs because of how ill it could make you feel by eating gluten etc. In which case, you need to avoid all gluten and wheat forever! (By the way another symptom of coeliac disease is dairy/lactose intolerance- which could be causing your nausea). Sorry to be blunt, but you need to know the dangers and there's no point in sugar coating it. What is your fasting blood test for?

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
