All my symptoms went away. I got over confident and weaned myself off of it since I was getting enough sunlight and eating more diary.

I cannot pinpoint where it is coming from, but it seems to be my lower throat/upper chest, somewhere around collarbone level. It seems to be located within the windpipe or esophagus.
