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.

    • 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??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
