  1. I'm new here, so I'm not sure if I'm even posting this in the right forum, but here goes. It's been about 3 months and I am at my wit's end. Forgive me for being dramatic, but I don't wanna suffer alone anymore. My gluten intolerance emerged when I hit puberty, but it was never serious: just bloating, constipation, fatigue. However, along the years, I noticed some strange symptoms come about. The weirdest being a "globus" sensation, as if something was caught in my throat. After attempting to cough it up to no avail, I decided to ignore it, assuming it was simply mucus. Once again, I continued to eat gluten, not realizing the damage it was causing. Then slowly over the course of a couple more years, I noticed that food would take awhile to go down. I didn't think much of it, just that I had to drink a lot more water than usual. Fast forward to the present time, and now I can hardly swallow my own saliva. I went to the doctor, who said I had nothing more than a mere chest cold. So I took the medicine, and only got worse. I don't know how it happened, but I stumbled upon a forum post, about a woman whose dysphagia was linked to celiac disease. It all makes sense now. After a month of starvation, my swallowing returned to (somewhat) normal, and as you can imagine, I stuffed every food imaginable down my throat: pizza, bread, ramen, my favorite foods basically. And now I'm back to step one, and I've never felt more miserable. I've avoided gluten like the plague ever since, yet I still cannot swallow. I really hope that someone out there can relate to the toll that this is taking on my mental health. I've never been suicidal, but it just seems like each day, a new symptom arises for no utter reason, and I think that being dead would be so much easier. As of now, I haven't eaten gluten in weeks, yet I have the sensation of a walnut stuck in my throat, and I am scared to death to eat a morsel of mashed potato. I've been waking up every morning choking on my saliva. No one is taking me seriously. My mom just tells me to eat less dairy and gluten. But my throat literally feels like it's the size of a straw. That's not all either. Don't even get me started on the brain fog, the random rashes, my bones aching for no reason, falling asleep while eating, the list goes on. I've managed to eat some soup now, although it takes me an hour to eat half a cup. This, along with the stress of college is beating me to a pulp right now. I hate to complain so much, but I really just want someone to tell me that they know what I'm going through, because no one in my life can relate to me right now, or even have any sympathy. Please, tell me I'm not alone.
