    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

I am a recovering celiac, dx in 08-08. My villi went from severely to mildly atrophied/blunted. Right now, I am experiencing problems when drinking. I drink water, and I have been burping a lot and feeling almost like a lump in my throat. When I get this, my blood pressure appears to drop, and I feel tired. I don't understand why that is. I did have back-up/constipation problems, but I'm now having daily BMs.

Has anyone else experienced anything similar?

have you talked to your doctor about this? i vaguely recall this being something specific - when the blood pressure drop is included. it's not all that uncommon to get a fair amount of burpiness if you happen to swallow a lot of air when you're drinking, but if you're avoiding swallowing air, it's a bit unusual.

Yes , I have the exact same thing happening to me. I feel like there is a lump in my throat and sometimes it is hard to swallow. I have hypothyroidism and Celiac Disease and a herniated disc in my back plus a ton of symptoms from the Celiac. Some have lessened but I still have alot and I was diagnosed July 14th 2008.

I was always worried that I had something worse. I had tons of Mris, cat scans, seen a hemotologist, endocrinologist etc. I was eating out at mcdonalds for a long time just getting a hmburger without the bun. Probably not a good idea at all. To many cross contamination issues to deal with. I feel like I should be further along in my healing. The lump in my throat thing seems to be far worse after I get glutened though. <Ted>

Guys, pleased have your dr check this. My friend just had surgery last week for a cancerous thyroid. Her main symptom was trouble swallowing pills and food. She pushed her dr and he agreed to a sonogram of her thyroid. That showed enlargement which caused them to take a needle biopsy then to surgery. Just make sure you are not in her shoes. At first her dr didn't want to do anything about it. Get it check thoroughly.

This is very interesting Ang again you are very informed and a great asset of information. I too have trouble swallowing sometimes and with some foods if they aren't super moist I have problems swallowing them. I have no problem with cereal and saucy stuff but if my chicken isn't really moist I will have problems and then at other times I will just be sitting not eating or anything and will try to swallow and I have to use a lot of effort to get that initial swallow. Weird I think but I really hadn't thought much of it, just figured it was from my GERD... maybe I will have the thyroid check.

I have trouble swallowing sometimes too. I get the old glass of water going when that happens. For me it seems to happen further down nearer the stomach, not in the throat. I do have a couple thyroid nodules and a cyst. The doc told me there are different kinds of nodules. Some are active and some are not, and some are calcified. He said the calcified ones tend to be come cancerous a little more often than the non-calcified ones. But the rate of developing cancer is low.

This emedicine article says the cancer rate of nodules is fairly low. And that about 50% of adults have them.
