Throat and jaw tightening

Common Questions and Answers about Throat and jaw tightening


Avatar f tn s spreading - I start noticing that my face/jaw is kinda sore, then oh! my head feels funny on that side too, and my throat hurts a little when I swallow.... will it ever end!?! Maybe a massage would help - I don't know. I REALLY appreciate all the comments -- knowing that other people are dealing with similar issues brings some comfort.
Avatar f tn I have always been an anxiety ridden person,but here recently I have been clenching my teeth a lot more and I think it is causing the back of my tounge and the front parts of my throat to be sore but not like a sick sore really like a muscle strain sore. I carry a lot of anxiety in my neck and shoulders and I do find myself clenching my jaw quite a bit anymore,but I am now thinking that my tounge and throat muscles are now tensing up.
Avatar m tn I was on the computer and burped, went to swallow and half way through my throat locked up. I burped again, and something felt like it popped back into place and i could swallow. Being a 17 year old, I went to school and started to eat my pop tart. I had difficulty swallowing and right after felt like my right side was swollen, and I could almost move around something in my cheek and lower jaw.
Avatar f tn I have started to have a tightening sensation in my throat, it spreads up through my jaws and makes my jaw teeth and ears hurt. It is very scary and makes me a little nauseous. It is very uncomfortable. Has anyone else experienced something like this? Would MS cause these symptoms?
Avatar n tn Tension headache is a likely diagnosis since the pressure goes down to nose bridge and you have other anxiety symptoms like tightening of throat and jaw and upper back pain. It can be treated with medications and relaxation techniques. Along with that it could also be TMJ. The pain is worse when you are standing because the jaw relaxes when you lie down. 3. You could also be having ‘benign intracranial hypertension’ (BIH). This happens due to impaired CSF absorption.
1243543 tn?1269124022 Hi,throat tightening is a classic symptoms of anxiety,i did experienced this before and now no more,just take it easy i know its hard and over in time it will be gone in days that u even wont noticed it.
Avatar m tn The perfusion scan was negative, at 99% of 159bmp, no perfusion abnormalities at rest or at peak. I did not experience throat tightening. I still occasionally experience throat tightening at peak exercise; on the inhale. The Cardio invited me to participate in a CCTA trial. Would a CCTA provide additional useful info? Apparently, false stress echo negatives are due to: not achieving 85% target rate, balanced ischemia, left anterior circumflex stenosis.
Avatar f tn Is it possible to have obstructions of the jaw and tongue day and night , also dependent on head position without having any sleep disordered breathing. I have no success with the splint made by my dentist nor much luck with the TMJ specialist who suggested moist heat and exercises to push the jaw back. I've stopped these exercises . I am due to see an ENT . Who do I really have to consult to get this problem fixed at least.
362203 tn?1248810310 Recently I saw a doctor and she said there are bumps all over the very back of my tongue and all over my tonsils, uvula and going down my throat. A throat culture showed no pathogens present and I also recently tested for mono and it was negative too. Has anyone had this or know what it might be? I have no allergies that I know of. I do get my thyroid checked every 6 months because my TSH jumps up and down and I have some antibodies present that are a sign of autoimmune disease.
1230197 tn?1365007794 I just started getting this tightness in my throat that is bothering me. It feels full and I can sometimes feel a pulse there. Is this the thyroid reacting to the sudden increase in meds? I keep on thinking the "c" word. My Doc has not done an ultrasound, should he have?
Avatar f tn I think it has something to do with the jaw, the muscles in the throat and the nerves in the throat which are being vibrated by the vocal chords. I saw an ENT last fall. He said my vocal chords were just fine. He saw something else a little red but could not see any reason why I couldn't talk. I was a little hoarse at that time but had a lot of pain in my throat. I would like to be able to sing as I go through school (getting my Masters in Music Education).
1549643 tn?1495759353 My face got numb, tinging went crazy in my neck and face, my neck definitely went into a spasm, no question, had some painful spasmic sensations running into my jaw and chest area. The tingling got pretty strong all over. Thoracic ended up in a spasm, sharp pain there with movement, my abdomen got tight, and my throat was tightening up. Don't get why this started with a pounding painful pulse.
451674 tn?1205658922 She said I could have surgery, where they would break my jaw and realign it. Whatever!! No one is breaking my jaw. I just live with it unfortunatly.
Avatar f tn Whatever it is has my throat hurting when I swallow ans feels like junk in my throat. My jaw hurts to open it and it wont ope all the way. I have a headache too. What is going on?
351317 tn?1204751871 Try massaging your chest and taking slow deep breaths. Try to go to a quiet and peaceful place and close your eyes and just sit there and breathe.
Avatar m tn For the past 3 days i have been having really bad pains in my chest and throat. it feels like they are just TIGHTENING. my heart doesnt really beat fast it actually just seems like it is beating a lot harder. they tend to come and go and it happens about 5 times a day. could anyone possibly tell me what could be the pottential problem please???
Avatar f tn I have minimal pain in the left jaw side but I get this tingly tightening up my left cheek and under my eye and temple area - do you get this or heard of this?
Avatar m tn this is because the muscles of the jaw are VERY strong and affect everything because we have nerves going from the base of the head all the way through the body... Have you been diagnosed with TMJ/TMD? Has your dentist mentioned you have this? If so you need a specialist...there aren't many but they are out the meantime...
Avatar n tn I have GERD and have the throat tightening/feeling of lump in my throat. My doctor put me on Flexeril which is a muscle spasm relaxer and when I feel my throat tightening, I take one pill before I go to bed and when I wake up, my throat is fine. This may very well help you as well.
Avatar n tn The root canal was not easy - I felt some of treatment due to inflammation from crack and afterwards I had pain for a few days both in the tooth and jaw. My jaw pain is on left side only - same side as tooth. My crown was placed on tooth with temporary cement and left like that for months - but the off and on discomfort remained.
Avatar n tn It does work and also helps with pain in the jaw from swollen glands as we all know the ear, nose and throat is all connected.
Avatar f tn The pain is a tightening pain that starts in my left side of my jaw a goes down to my chest just under my breast. The pain/tightness lasts about 5-10 min. After the pain fades I become completely exhausted and sleep for a few hours. I just had an episode on Friday and It was different because my left side of my lips were numb and I have had a headache since after it happened on Friday so 3 days so far and I can't seem to get energy to do anything.
Avatar n tn About a week ago I had such a terrible "toothache" I could hardly stand it. I took two rapid release tylenol, the pain went away and I thought may be it had been caused by clenching my jaw during the day (without realizing it). Anyway, the pain came back again yeasterday with a vengence! My lower jaw on my left side has severe pain that lasts several minutes then subsides for a while. The upper jaw on the left side is also effected but isn't as severe.
Avatar f tn My lips, tongue, throat, hands and feet get swollen, and/or I break out in hives. Recently, though, the only thing that reacts to a new medicine is my throat. I have a hard time swallowing, and I get horrific esophageal spasms which feel real tight and painful in my chest. Has this happened to anyone here? Do you just get swelling in your throat as a reaction to a new med? I'm on an antibiotic that I can't stop taking for another 10 days, so I have to try to live thru this.
Avatar f tn I have had jaw pain for many days, only on one side, now i have ear and throat pain on the same side, and my jaw hurts so bad, like I had been punched (or so I assume) really har din the jaw. It hurts to eat, and I have pain in my ear and a sore throat.....can anyone give me advise? Bad sinuses? Time to go the Dr?
Avatar f tn Despite the vertigo being resolved, what I seem to have now is a forward head posture, stiff muscles and joints in the jaw, neck and shoulders and hips. But most of all I have breathing issues and the sides of my neck, shoulder and jaw seem all jammed up . I used to have severe restriction in my rib cage which affected my breathing. My physio gave me some exercises which helped fix this and my breathing is better.
