2036337_tn?1337107609 And my throat closes, so that i constantly drink water just to know i'm okay and its not actually closing. the ilight>pressureilight> on my ilight>chestilight> is just so intense, ilight>andilight> my hands sometimes start to shake. Are those symptoms of anxiety? it doesn't go away, and it probably has a lot to do with the fact that i can't stop thinking about it. But its hard, you know? Especially when i'm having a hard time breathing because of it.
Avatar_f_tn Now that my SVT is fixed, and the ablation done with, i have this horrible ilight>pressureilight> in my ilight>chestilight>. its usually when i sneeze, run, anything that works my ilight>chestilight>, ilight>andilight> it doesnt go away for a while..
Avatar_n_tn For the past four weeks i have had tighteness in my throat, coughing, and ilight>pressureilight> on my ilight>chestilight> ilight>andilight> back (between my shoulder blades). it feels like something is stuck in my ilight>throatilight> all the time. i went to the doctor about a week ago and received a cortisone shot, which releaved some of my chest and back pain, but seems that my throat pain is the same or may have even gotten worse. my doctor diagnosed me with allergies and post nasel drip.
Avatar_n_tn Mobility test scheduled for some time in the future. i have constant ilight>pressureilight> in my ilight>throatilight> ilight>andilight> upper ilight>chestilight>. i am a 51-year-old, white male, with a history of acid reflux. i found "Barrett's Esophagus" on the internet. All of the symptoms and proclivity match me exactly. Any suggestions?
1243543_tn?1269127622 Everytime i get something checked out it turns out ok and then the symptom magically goes away and now the new one im getting tightness around my throat almost like someone has there hands around it with there fingers pushing in on the sides of my throat not real hard but enough to cause ilight>pressureilight> very scary ilight>andilight> uncomfortable ilight>andilight> i have trouble swallowing ilight>andilight> that makes me panic so i take a big drink of ice cold water and that seems to help or sometimes ill take a half of zanax and that seems to
Avatar_n_tn i also feel the ilight>pressureilight> behind my eyes. the ilight>pressureilight> area feels like a bubble in my ilight>chestilight>. Sitting down ilight>andilight> leaning forward feels like putting pressure on both the top and the bottom of this area. Standing is the most comfortable position. Lying down feels like it is pushing this pressure area up into my throat. Also, the pressure sometimes makes breathing feel strained in one lung, but not the other (although which lung can alternate).
Avatar_n_tn it feels like ilight>pressureilight> in my ilight>throatilight> ilight>andilight> ilight>chestilight>. i have to sleep on my side or stomach. i have even started snoring. What do you think is going on?
Avatar_n_tn i went for antibiotics ilight>andilight> anti allergies ,but to no result. a thick grey mucous comes out sticking. my ct scan of ilight>chestilight> was perfectly normal.
Avatar_n_tn that lasted for about 2 to 3 weeks. then for the next few months, i would occasionally get a mild sore ilight>throatilight>, ilight>andilight> just not feel 100% ilight>andilight> weak. then the last month or 2 i have had alot of exccess gas and belching, which sometimes feels like it relieves the chest pressure a little but does not compleltly make it go away. there is a lump right under my left breast, and sometimes slight pressure which fluxuates.
Avatar_m_tn it causes pain in the ilight>chestilight>, ilight>andilight> burning in the ilight>chestilight>, sour taste in the mouth. the feeling of lump in the ilight>throatilight> ilight>andilight> difficulty swallowing is known as globus hystericus. i would suggest you to eat a soft bland diet, avoid oily foods, drink plenty of water and take an OTC antacid before meals for a few days.
Avatar_n_tn i have similar symptoms - ilight>chestilight> cracking ilight>andilight> soreness, ilight>throatilight> tightness - ilight>andilight> have not been able to find anything to help. the doctor said it is probably costochondritis but also suggested seeing a rheumatologist. i have not been to the rheumantologist and decided to try ibuprofen for costochondritis first.
Avatar_n_tn i have suffered with anxiety also over the fear of death, ilight>andilight> today this ilight>chestilight> ilight>pressureilight> ilight>andilight> tight feeling in my ilight>throatilight> ilight>andilight> shoulders could come from anxiety, but it truly feels like i will stop breathing at any minute and this is awful. i chew lots of gum due to my breath sometimes being bad and am worried this has spread infection through my whole body.
Avatar_n_tn m. one night with SEVERE ilight>chestilight> pain ilight>andilight> ilight>pressureilight> that was felt front ilight>andilight> back ilight>andilight> into the left shoulder, neck and jaw. Heart rate was 128 at rest. Nitro didn't do anything, morphine didn't help pain. Was given blood thinners and beta blockers which finally slowed rate and eased pain some. chest was sore for days and still doesn't always feel right. ALL tests ( blood enzymes, ekg's, stress tests, cat scan and x-rays) are O.K. What can this be?
Avatar_f_tn is it normla to feel pain in my ilight>throatilight>/ilight>chestilight>. Now its nit acid reflux i know what taht feels like. it hurts to swallow even water.
Avatar_n_tn i am currently taking 25mg of Toprol once a day ilight>andilight> one Nexium a day for heartburn. As a review, there is the ilight>pressureilight> in ilight>chestilight>, not pain. i have pain and soreness to touch in the chest area but that seems to be muscular. i sometimes find it hard to breath or like i cant catch my breath. i occasionally get pain in my arms and legs.
Avatar_f_tn For the past month i have had the feeling of a lump in my throat, like i have to clear it all the time, ilight>andilight> ilight>pressureilight> in my ilight>chestilight> that rises up to my neck ilight>andilight> ilight>throatilight>. my doctor says it may be allergies, but i don't think so. She did blood work on me to include gallbladder, thyroid, etc...and nothing. i have been to the ER twice where they have taken blood test, x-rays, and EKG tests and everything "looks good".
Avatar_f_tn During these few weeks i've been experiencing some ilight>throatilight> irritation ilight>andilight> ear aches. One side of my ilight>throatilight> feels a tad bit swollen when i swallow. A couple times when i was trying to eat i would get a sharper pain in my right ear and even my right eye would ache. i kept putting off going to the doctor just hoping it would go away. Finally after waking up the other morning, and it hurt to open my jaw all the way, i went to the doctor.
Avatar_n_tn the pain is located under my left shoulder blade. it a sharp pain ilight>andilight> i am almost positive it started after the ilight>chestilight> ilight>pressureilight>. i am not sure if the back pain is related at all.
Avatar_n_tn i have this pain evey now and then, it occurs when i am going to Burp, i get this almost unbearable pain in my ilight>throatilight> ilight>andilight> ilight>chestilight> like something is being built up, but i cannot burp. it passes away after 10 - 15 seconds. it also hurts to swallow, it's like there's something physically in the way, but there is nothing to be seen. Every now and then it also hurts a little to breathe. it started occurring after i had this drank a pepsi that had almost gone flat.
Avatar_n_tn currently taking meds for blood ilight>pressureilight> ilight>andilight> congestive heart failure. Thank you for your valuable time and educated opinion.
1644468_tn?1301068148 i drink many fluids to try and soothe it but it just doesn't go away. my ilight>throatilight> ilight>andilight> ilight>chestilight> feel like you usually feel like when you're running outside in the cold ilight>andilight> come in. i press down on my chest sometimes and the pressure relieves the pain sometimes. Help?
Avatar_n_tn i am having severe pain in the center of my ilight>chestilight> followed by ilight>throatilight> ilight>andilight> jaw pain. Normally lasts about 15 min. Has happened approx 8 times in the last 5 days.
Avatar_m_tn Sometimes it is uncomfortable ilight>andilight> i try to move around ilight>andilight> make it stop. Usually there is nothing i can do it comes ilight>andilight> goes on its own. Everything online doesn't help because i can't pinpoint what is wrong or what the pain exactly feels like. its like something is expanding or contracting in the middle of my chest and pushing against everything then releases. i don't think i am experiencing any other symptoms.
1538119_tn?1292719809 So NOW all this pain has come back, it is up my shoulder and into my neck again and causing a pain ilight>andilight> ilight>pressureilight> up around my left ear ilight>andilight> face. This is very painful ilight>andilight> nothing seems to help. i'm really getting tired of feeling like crap and its interfering with my life and my work.
Avatar_m_tn i haven't officially been diagnosed with GERD but while i was pregnant went to the ER with ilight>chestilight> pains. Everything was checked out (ilight>chestilight> xray, CT, leg dopplars etc) ilight>andilight> at the end he said it was probably GERD. i am now 3 months post-partum and experiencing this weird pressure in my upper chest. Like a fullness, or that my stomach is too high in my chest (if that makes any sense!). if i wasn't really focussing on it, i'd say it feels like my breathing was not right too.
