I also have a lump feeling on my throat. It is the side of my Adam's apple. My endoscopy showed http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/eosinophilic-esophagitis/basics/definition/con-20035681, H Pilori positive, gastritis, and hiatal hernia. No wonder I keep clearing my throat. I apologize for the link mid sentence. I just wanted to provide some potential reasons for some of your issues.

I agree with the previous posts. Get some reliable info. Also, have you had your thyroid checked? Might be something to think about. Just don't panic, breathe... Keep your blood sugar where it needs to be. Good luck figuring it all out!
It is too bad the doctor didn't advise you to take the blood tests before going gluten free. There is a chance they could still be positive..... But a good chance that being gluten-free for weeks will make them negative.
I Have not seen any medical evidence that Celiac disease is caused by any other disease. It is a genetic auto immune disease.
Perhaps you should read some info from reliable source s like the Univ of Chicago Celiac Center?
I have a requisition for blood tests, but there is no way that I am going back on gluten. The cramps and pain is horrendous. I've only been off for a couple weeks, and I'm also doing the IgG tests, not really sure what those will show.
I have suffered with hypoglycemia in the past, and when I wasn't overweight and always dieting, I guess celiac maybe didn't rear it's ugly head... until after I went through something difficult in my life and started eating more carbs and then gained weight. I was never officially diagnosed with diabetes, but have been in the "pre-diabetes' range for a while. And I read that Celiac is either caused by PCOS or PCOS causes Celiac... not sure...
If you seriously suspect celiac disease, you should get tested (blood test), but that means you must be eating gluten. Even being gluten-free for as little as a few weeks can impact your tests results. Here's more information:
In the meantime, it sounds like your blood sugar is wonky. How often do you check your blood sugar? Do you have a meter?
This is a good site that you might find helpful with your diabetes:

Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you? Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉 Do you know how to fix it? You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do
Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Here is the link if you have never watched it.
