Common Questions and Answers about Tightness in throat and neck

throat

After speech therapy and vocal training, I was on the road to recovery, but in the last year I have been bothered with tightness in the back of my head, neck and throat. I am a singer and my life has be dramatically altered. I recently had a BRAVO test done to rule our acid reflux. There was very little acid found.
It feels like there is a tightness or something in the very bottom of my throat -been like this for about 5 days - I do neck exercises where I bend my head back to stretch my neck - could this have irritated something?
if you are having tightness in your throat, you may be developing a severe reaction to the MSG. I seriously suggest you make sure you avoid MSG as much as you can. You may well get a reaction one day that makes your throat totally close up and then you will need to have a tracheotomy just to breathe.
Then I started getting some tightness In the base of my neck/throat and around my Adam’s apple. I went to the doctor he examined my neck didn’t feel anything and he ordered a neck ultra sound and blood test I guess to check my thyroid. Both of those came back normal. Over the last 6 weeks I’ve been having some digestion problems… lose bowels movements… lots of gas ect…. (I am also prescribed 20 mg of Dexedrine).

I have the tightness in my throat, it also seems like it goes into my sinuses and face. I do have GERD and some of those other symptoms but they did a thyroid test and said it was fine..maybe I should be getting another one done.
i have got tightness in the front of my throat some times worse than others. I have a thyroid nodule been and had it tested not cancerous , small 1.5cm doctors very little help . they suggested a few different reasons for throat discomfort .
I have a similar feeling too, but it's not actually "in" my throat. I feel like hands are on the outside (both sides of my neck towards the front) squeezing it. Almost like if I had a shrink wrap turtle neck top on. Mine is a symptom related to Morgellons.
This gives a tickle, tightness and even (in some case) a neck bulge. Specifically, when the right atrial contraction occurs when the tricuspid valve is closed, a Cannon A wave will occur in a jugular venous pulse. This is not dangerous in and of itself but the arrhythmia could be. You should take your mom to a cardiologist and have the irregular heartbeat diagnosed in the context of her overall heart condition. Probably, it's just PVCs, which in a healthy heart is harmless.
I've been having this tightness, something stuck in my throat feeling for a few months now. It starts in the morning when I wake up till I go to sleep at night then it'll start all over again. I know this sounds strange but I only feel relief when I'm eating or drinking. I don't know what it is. Both esopogram and ultrasound turn out to be negative and I don't have any thyroid problem. My doctor keeps telling me is allergies but I don't think it is.
I also have been treated for thrush serveral times as my muscle in my neck and throat get very tight like I;m holding the muscle when I swallow to not feel the sensation. Have you had any luck with finding releif?

I feel like wearing sweater when I visit mall even during summers, I have too much sensitivity to cold. Please advise. I will be visiting my endocrinologist after 3 weeks from now.
It may be that you are developing a goitre. This is when the thyroid swells up and even a 2mm difference can be felt in the throat area. Hashimoto's can be checked by having some thyroid anti-body tests done. It often happens when a person is not well or stressed that the Hashimoto's can flare up and cause that pressure you feel, as well as lymph node swelling. Personally I would be checking in with your doctor and ask the questions and see how you go.
I would like some help, i have a severe tightness in the front of my throat that feels like a choking. It worsens the more tired i feel. The worst part is the inflammation makes me feel like i cant breath and causes severe pain that is not possible to ignore. I have a history of thyroid deficiency in the family and my docter did say that i will probably develop one but as of yet it should be ok.
It *may* be that sensation of being stuck in the throat and/or disolving other than in the stomach.
I have had pressure and tightness in my throat for a few weeks now. It seems to come and go on a daily basis with no rhyme or rythm. It feels like there is a rope around my neck sometimes. I have no pain or any other symptoms. I take 30mg of cymbalta every day. HELP!!

I've had a cold about two months ago, and after a cold was gone I started feeling throat tightness and coughing, also tickle in throat, then I had another cold about a month ago and it went away too, and i am still feeling throat tightness, tickle and coughing. Sometimes when I start talking my throat gets tickleish and I just have to cough. Also when I touch my lower neck it makes me want to cough and get this weird feeling inside the throat.
This seems to be my problem which in turn affects the front of my neck and tightness in throat feeling. I think it is all muscle related?
Do you have any tenderness or swelling in your neck area, or have you had your thyroid examined lately? I had tightness and fullness in my throat and had difficulty breathing due to thyroidits. It has since subsided. What are you other symptoms?
At other times it feels like there's a lump in my throat. I have been seeing an ENT and had a barium swallow done and they concluded that I had acid reflux. I've been on protonix for about 2 weeks now. I'm just curious is this feeling of tightness in the neck common with GERD? I can't help but feel like its something else. I had a scan of my thyroid done and there was nothing seen there. The thyroid tests also show everything within "normal range".
I have been on the meds for 6 months now, and about a month and 1/2 ago, I began developing extreme tightness in my throat like a choking feeling, pill stuck-feeling, tightness in the back of my neck and sternum. My general practicioner had me see GI doctor, who found minor constriction in my esophagus by conducting an upper endoscopy. I had a followup ultrasound of my thyroid indicating the same findings as the previous except additional growth (+1mm) in some of the cysts.
Hi I have a 15 year old son who five days ago started having tightness in his neck are, not like throat closing but outer neck skin tightening. when it gets tight it causes him to gag and sometimes vomit. when he gags a clear fluid comes up that tastes salty he says. sipping water or chewing peppermint gum helps but doesnt take it away. what could this be. it comes and goes not sure what brings it on. notice it alot after he eats, no other symptoms. Driving us crazy.
however I have been experiencing a terrible taste in my mouth, fullness/pressure on the side of my face and neck(where these teeth are located) as well as tightness/lump feeling in my throat. Do these symptoms coinicde with abcesseed teeth?
A major symptom of stress is a tightness in the throat/difficulty swallowing or a feeling of a lump in the throat. Also maybe you should have your thyroid checked? Wish you the best of luck!
He says he feels like someone is pulling the skin in the back of his neck and the skin on the sides of his neck get tight and then he starts gagging. About a week ago he was on antibiotics for 10 days for sore throat and ear ache. But he had this episode last month also and hadnt been sick. He does suffer from allergies in the spring but nothing too bad. I have started him on the ranitidine just to say we tried. I did ask him if he was worried about anything or stressed. He says no.
What in the world could be causing this tightness in my throat and chest? It almost feels like the swelling in my throat comes and goes.
