Does Anyone's Throat Burn If They Eat Something They Shouldn't?

I'm not supposed to have nightshades - tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant and green peppers. I know I'm not supposed to have them but my reaction isn't like it is to gluten so I do cheat sometimes. If I eat a massive amount I will get a stomach ache and D, but I usually have to eat like a whole bowl of spaghetti sauce to have a problem. Tomatoes are especially hard because I love salsa and tomato sauce and there really isn't a substitute for those things.

So, when I eat something with one of those items my throat immediately starts burning. I had some baked beans the other day and there is tomato in the sauce and my throat burned the entire time I ate them. It is almost like a warning signal. If only my body did that with gluten I would never get glutened because I would know it whatever I was eating was contaminated.

Does this happen to anyone else?

One of the first reactions I get is almost immediate (when I ingest gluten). My throat starts to burn, and it get really hard to swallow. I know then that I am in trouble!

I have a lot of allergies, and throat/mouth burning/itchiness/tingling is most often how I know if I've eaten something I shouldn't. With some foods, the reaction basically stops there although I sometimes get a few hives too. With other foods, I might develop other symptoms . . . in the worst case scenario, vomiting/nausea, involuntary gagging, major breathing difficulties, face swelling . . .

So, yeah, I take throat tingling as a warning sign. I'd suggest going to an allergist for testing. I know that some folks can have a pretty severe tomato allergy. If it is an IgE mediated allergy, the reaction can be unpredictable.
