I have now completed a month of gluten free diet WOO HOO! I am loving it! However my thyroid SEEMS to be out of wack. I have never had problems with it before and I have had tests done in 2010. I am wondering if it's from the Gluten withdrawl....any thoughts?
My symptoms that make me think it's the thyroid is a pain in my neck on the right side almost right where you would check your pulse, sweating to death for no reason and night sweats. Also my ear on the same side has been plugged for months now and has a huge lump behind it and another below it right where my jaw line connects to my ear.

That doesn't sound good. It sounds like lymphnodes to me. I have always heard if you have swollen lymph nodes and night sweats to get to the doctor ASAP. I don't mean to scare you but I hope you get it checked out.

It could be an ear infection. I don't think there's such a thing as "gluten withdrawl" since it's not a drug and there's no physiological addiction. That's like saying.. "Raisin withdrawl" or "Canola oil withdrawl". I'm glad you are getting it checked out, though. I just had surgery for a lump on my thyroid that they thought was cancer. Please have them check for thyroid lumps, because thyroid cancer often spreads to the lymph nodes in that exact area and can cause ear pain, too. Mine was NOT cancer, but it took going to a couple of doctors and the lump that was removed could have morphed into cancer in a few years because it was follicular. Hope you are OK.

I can guarantee there is such a thing as gluten withdrawal! I've HAD it. And just read the posts on this board & see how many have gone through it. It's REAL & it EXISTS!
If you haven't gone through gluten withdrawal then you are a rare bird & it does happen sometimes. I am overjoyed that you were spared the misery of that. Seriously, I mean that in all sincerity.

thyroid cancer only affect thyroid function in fewer cases. most times people have it and have no thyroid malfunction at all.

i would still get it checked, i had thyroid cancer four years ago and the process to get it removed isn't as bad as you might scare yourself to be. If you are to get it removed, make sure the surgeon is a specialist- you don't want to end up with a raspy voice or a big incision. 

 

gluten intolerance/celiac is most definitely related to papillary thyroid cancer. wishing you the best and hopefully it's just your lymph nodes fighting off a minor infection
