Avatar n tn I have noticed at times it feels like someone is grabbing me and my throat gets really really tight like a hand is around it....cutting off blood supply to my head...what is that...could it be musular or is it heart related?
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 f tn It was as if my esophogus was tightening up and the Flexeril relieved it. I have read many people having the lump sensation in their throat and they might want to try this. I am so relieved - I thought I either had a goiter or cancer and it scared me.
Avatar n tn Tmj runs in my family but my orthodontist said my jaw feels fine. I have braces also and im always stressed out. My jaw its not like it hurts its just a weird tightening feeling and it feels better when i pop it. kind of like its not connected. ive tried everything and nothing works, My doctor tested my jaw and said it feels fine but idk.
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.
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 n tn Hello, several nights ago I woke up from sleeping and felt my throat closing, like tightening up and I couldn't get a lot of air through. Since I had eaten a lot right before I slept (rare for me), I thought this was acid reflux. I took a Zantac, and this seemed to help a little. Since then (it's been almost a week) I have woken up every morning with a sore throat and from time to time the throat tightening is still happening.
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.
Avatar n tn 30am by 5pm I was sick as a dog! throwing up, blurred vision, jaw tightening, stomach aches, stiff neck, etc. Stopped taking it and my doctor switched me to Femara, to be taken along w/ Effexor. Not quite as bad but almost. Does anyone take Femara or Arimidex w/out taking Effexor and what do you feel like?
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.
Avatar m tn This happens everytime I speak, eat, sometimes even if I am doing nothing, this happens about every minute and I am going nuts! I cannot take it any more!! I went to an Ear, Nose and Throat doc and he did a neck CT and found nothing wrong. It feels like maybe it starts to calcify or something. The only way to fix this is to push whatever it is in my throat in and it makes a pop and feels better, well for about a minute and I have to do this again.
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 n tn have no idea why this even happened, but today I was eating pizza the same pizza I have eaten for years and it felt like my throat was tightening up. I know what the feels like because I have food allergy, yet I don't think that is what happened. I waited about 10 min and the symptoms did not change they stayed the same. So I went to the doctor and he gave me a dose of epi pen and some benedral (mis sp?). I waited and it seems that the symptoms did not change at all.
Avatar m tn On a daily basis I feel an irritated feeling in my throat. I feel tightening in my throat. Could it be the downside of using a CPAP machine? How can I get rid of the feeling?

Avatar m tn The pain kept me up all night and was horrible through out the days until I learned to eat and chew and a certain way. Now with the throat hurting I am wondering if it is really TMJ? Any suggestions?
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).
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.
Avatar f tn in my glands in the neck going up to the ear and leading down the throat and esophagus.It is not really a pain but a tightening and a pulling sensation. Scarry It just began this afternoon and I feel it when I breathe in or bend down my head and then it is intense in my throat. Is this an emergency?
Avatar n tn I also sometiimes experience tightening around the neck area and some ear pressure. I initially had a low b12 but after taking sublingual suppliments the level rose over 200. I have also had a clear mri done in october 07. Also all my blood tests came back normal. These symptoms started suddenly and I cannot relate them to anything apart from having a white tooth filling around this time. I have seen approximately 5 doctors all of whom are baffled at this stage. ????
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.
1302515 tn?1272990475 i stopped using because i felt my nose changing inside and i had constantly a sore throat and i felt my ears sore. 2 months have past and i still have a sore throat and i still presure my teeth and jaw.
