tightness in throat after eating gluten?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I've noticed that if I accidentally eat gluten, for the next few days I have this tightness in my throat. It feels like my throat is closing. It's not constant, but comes and goes throughout the next 1-3 days. My hands have also been itchy. Is this a normal symptom for celiac or gluten intolerance, or could it possibly be an allergy? I haven't been tested or diagnosed with celiac or anything yet, so I'm still not entirely sure. All I know is that gluten makes me very sick.. But especially with the itchiness and tight throat.. I'm allergic to acetaminophen and my reaction is similar, so it just makes me wonder. What do you think?

Hello 1398_Days! 

Sounds like an allergy to me - although I would have thought if it were gluten exposure it would gradually reduce rather than keep coming back??? 

Of course, there are a lot of seasonal allergens out there at the moment if you are in the Northern hemisphere.   

If you are at all concerned I would raise it with your doctor.
