In Topic: Help...does Anyone Have Swollen Glands On The Back Of Their Neck?

22 September 2006 - 05:11 PM

Hi Dustin, and welcome to this board. I used to get swollen, terribly painful glands in the back of my neck ALL the time. Since I've been gluten-free I have had that problem only when glutened (or having been 'poisoned' by something else I'm intolerant to). In fact, now that I think of it, I used to have swollen glands behind my ears and under my chin constantly, too, and almost never get those now, either.

So, be patient, it takes a while to heal. It took a while for my glands to stop being swollen and painful, definitely a few months.

Thank you so much Ursula...I was starting to think I was crazy... every doctor I have seen just dismisses it and tells me that swollen nodes aren't the cause of my neck pain. Did get sick a lot when you were on gluten... It seems like I was sick every other week last year...

I also have a lot of celiac symptoms. One thing I noticed is that when I eat any gluten I have a lymph node on the back of my neck that gets really swollen...which pushes on a nerve that gives me headaches. Does anyone ever experience any burning sensations in their stomachs after being glutened? How about bloating so bad at night that their stomach seems to go numb in some places. I have not officially been dx'd as a celiac...but I am sure that I am. Every doctor I have seen doesn't even know what it is. They just tell me I am a hypochondriac and write me a prescription for whatever they think will help. I have pretty much given up on doctors and will fight this thing on my own.

Hi Everyone,

I have yet to be tested but I suspect that I have celiac... I feel perfectly fine in the morning until I eat... within 30 minutes I start to feel hot, and I get dizzy... I also get headaches. I have frequent bouts of dizziness... It usually goes away after I burp a few dozen times... I think it might have something to do with alll the gas pressure i get when I eat. I am finally going on a gluten-free diet starting soon. Wish me luck... and good luck to everyone that is suffering with celiac disease!
