Throat and jaw tightening

Common Questions and Answers about Throat and jaw tightening


Avatar f tn Anxiety and panic can definitely cause a myriad of symptoms. My hands sweat, heart races, and my throat tightens. In my experience, just when we seem to get a handle on one thing another symptom will pop up. It can be very scary and confusing, however the good thing is that you are experiencing 'typical' anxiety in my opinion, so you know you are not alone and that you can and will get through it. How long have you been experiencing anxiety? Are you in counseling for it?
Avatar f tn i keep gettingg these tightening underneth my jaw and it scares me to death does any one have any idea plz help me
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 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 m tn (related to anxiety).. and also tightening of my neck muscles.. I also then had sharp pains in my groin and above my inguinal area.. which led me to believe I had a hernia of some sort.. but once the doctor told me it was my anxiety, that all subsided and went away :) ... and then I got another stye due to more stress.. and now I discovered my lump.. I'v had several weeks of very bad anxiety attacks and periods of deep panic and restlessnes.
Avatar n tn The best way to describe the sound is like a stomach growling, only in the throat. It's incredibly embarrassing and I can't prevent it from happening. It tends to happen a lot after I drink juice or soda, but also sometimes after meals where I only drank water. Along with the gurgle I feel some light pressure in my lower throat, near my collarbone, like there's air trying to get out (no pain).
Avatar n tn I just drank some higher quality tequila and my ears and jaw are killing me. The pain is right behind where the jaw attaches to my skull and travels down to behind my jaw where it starts to turn in towards my mouth. I'v seen a lot of comments from those who have it but I haven't seen a comment about what the hell it is. Does anybody know?
Avatar n tn I had an endoscope put down my throat to see and they found a stricture and a sore spot. They put a hose down my throat to open up the stricture and I took some medicine for awhile for reflux (can't remember now). I felt much better afterwards. I don't get that problem anymore, but I agree that bad stress is a factor (and alcohol/caffeine use).
Avatar m tn It began in 1976 and re occurs every 5 to 6 years. I get a sore throat (not tonsils but when you swallow) I now go straight on antibiotics and use Bricanyl inhaler although it doesnt seem to have much effect except to cause alot of mucus coughed up from the lungs. It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out.
Avatar n tn my daughter 11 yrs old, had a possible stomach virus,afterward her throat, chest and neck started tightening and her back started aching, she stated she could not hardly breath hospital stated is was possibly acid reflux and prescribed prevacid tablets, stomach has gotten better but her neck continues to ache also being stiff and the area behind her ear along her jaw line she is worried about having meningitis the med center md suggested spinal tap i was worried about giving her this procedure p
Avatar n tn I have similar issues with throat muscle tightness. It is into my jaw as well, and tight shoulder muscles too. I have been seeing an oseteopath and this is definitely the best medical professional I have ever seen. My family doctor told me to take 2 ibuprofen everyday when I told him about my throat tightness, which didn't really seem like a logical solution to me. I would recommend an osteopath to everyone - it is just so amazing.
Avatar f tn I stopped taking the omeprazole as it didn’t appear to be working and last thing I feel I need if I have anything to do with nerves is a medication that depletes vitamin B 12, one of its side effects. Horrible intermittent sensations in chest and throat (either side of windpipe) that can last for up to or over an hour. Difficult to describe – internal quivering/discomfort almost pain. Also under ribs on both sides. Slight headache.
Avatar f tn Also have the sensation that my throat is tightening and my jaw seems very stiff! I'm wondering if my cold is possibly making this worse then normal? I hope so cause I don't wanna keep feeling like this! I also have discovered that eating makes the pressure worse...and so does smoking! I am also experiencing blurry vision.
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.
1549643 tn?1495762953 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.
1797743 tn?1389217285 I've been having some shortness of breath over the past couple of days and a tightening of my throat after I eat. I thought perhaps it was just a cold or something, so I contacted the doctor. I don't feel or notice any neck bulge when swallowing. I should probably also mention that it's that time of the month (tmi, I know). I've had experiences like this before in the past, but it goes away right after and it's never taken seriously by any of my doctors.
Avatar dr m tn This is an edited transcription of a previously recorded podcast Thanks for joining me today. I’m Dr. Steven Park and I’m an otolaryngologist, or an ear, nose & throat physician and surgeon, interested in sleep-related breathing disorders. Today’s topic will be: Surgical Treatment of Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Before we get to the “meat” of the matter, a brief review is in order.
147426 tn?1317269232 So, it does sound to me though that the depths of that particular yawn and stretch, which was so out of the ordinary enough, jolting enough trigger the TN - YUCK. I hope it all relaxes up for you, the legs, and the jaw. If not, give me the word, and I'll research you the Cadilac of all Reclyners, one that is "supe'd" up w/all the bells and whistles for lap tops, and MORE!!!!
748543 tn?1463449675 He did mention that I would have a risk of developing osteoarthritis later in life in my right jaw. Forward on to 2016 and I started to notice my neck and shoulders tightening. I do not know if there is an association but last summer I did fall off a boat and hit my head on a wood dock .....I ended up cracking the 2x4 where my head landed....I noticed my upper body tightening up more after that but again it may be just a coincidence.
Avatar f tn My hands and arms would tinlge and burn, and I my vision was blurry, and my head would pound and my jaw would throb, and one of my worst symptoms was I had and still do have, depersonalization/derealization, and I would feel almost like I was high on some kind of drug, and that I was watching my life as a movie. I felt like nothing was real. I would cry on a daily basis, honestly, just wishing someone or something would put me out of my misery.
392548 tn?1216614379 I was coughing uncontrollably and my chest was tightening. I used my emergency inhaler, and voila'...its subsided. I had NO idea that asthma and this deep itchy feeling was related until I just went looking. Thanks guys!!
446335 tn?1223951956 I have and do still experience almost the same symptoms except it feels like it starts underneath my breastbone and hurts up into my neck and jaw on the rt. side. I had a stress test for this problem about four yrs. ago and it was fine thankfully. I also have been taking Prilosec for 4 yrs also. Had gb removed sept. 07 and my pain was back within two weeks. I haven't returned to dr. yet. I keep thinking theres no use.
Avatar n tn I have the same sort of feeling, dizzy all day but better in the mornings, I have the same "spaced out" feeling. I have had an MRI and seen an ear, nose and throat specialist. Nothing was wrong there. My bloodwork was normal a few months ago, but i've just had it retested. I have also just had an EKG and am waiting on the results. My mother has a heart condition called Wolfe Parkinson White's Syndrome, which this may be a symptom of.
Avatar n tn I mean they will cause pain in the throat,ears on the left,right and/or both sides and the jaw! It can cause swelling of the neck along w/ neck pain like a stiff neck,memory loss,chronic fatigue, weight loss and gain,urinating problems even constipation.It is no joke! And is a very serious matter if left untreated.Hashimoto's Thyroiditis is a more serious one.But respectfully all thyroid problems are serious ones.
1912038 tn?1325592029 I am dizzy and lightheaded all the time and I feel like a weird pressure in my throat, almost like someone is gently squeezing my windpipe. I went to the doctor in June and she just fobbed me off saying it is anxiety. The thing is, I am not an anxious person at all. I am in a happy relationship, no real major life issues. Great kids etc etc. I do have high BP but that is under control with meds. My memory lately is terrible also. My kids joke that I have early onset dementia.
Avatar n tn I will start to feel like it is very hard to breath and there is a lump in my throat. I also have tightness in my jaw muscles and feel like my tongue is paralyzed as well. Now, my chest and back hurt with an intermittent, stabbing pain. I am so worried I have deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary emboli. I keep checking the symptoms and forums over and over.
Avatar n tn I have had episodes of throat spams (tightening and that feels like My throat.chest will explode then it passes for a few minutes and back again)off and on for most of my life. I have allergies and asthma and Gerd. Milk products always seems to cause the problems in my past. I have had problems the last few weeks that keep getting worse. I feel restricted in my throat and when I take a drink it delays going down my throat. I swallow...then feel it go down the left side of my throat.
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?
