Stomach pain immediately after eating carb diet, painful lump on the soft palate, difficulty in swallowing. Reason?

I have had horrible stomach pains immidiately after I eat anything that is basically a carb.This started when I was 21 years old. Some doctors told me I may be allergic to gluten but I have never had an official diagnosis. With that being said I feel like there is a lump on the roof of my mouth in the back it started to hurt to swallow 20 minutes after I ate dinner. It really hurts now and is painful to swallow what do you think it is?

Welcome to Healthcaremagic.

The swelling could be allergic oedema which is most commonly seen in Gluten sensitivity.

I would ask you to consult a gastroenterologist who can advice you relevant tests to diagnose you and put you on right treatment.

Meanwhile you can take antihistaminics which will surely but partially help you .

Wishing you good health.
