Avatar f tn Swallowing is a complex act that involves the mouth, throat area, and esophagus Swallowing pain refers to a strong feeling of uncomfortable squeezing and burning while swallowing, which may be felt high in the neck or lower down behind the breastbone. This may be accompanied by chest pain, the feeling that food is stuck in the throat, or heaviness or pressure in the neck or upper chest. Eating slowly and chewing the food thoroughly may help.
Avatar m tn As soon as I start exercising, walking, raking leaves etc. I get this sensation in my throat and upper chest. It's not like a pain , it's more like a strained feeling or burning.

Avatar m tn Hard to describe the feeling but it was throat pain. Three years go by (with no smoking) and I go to a concert, it was indoors and smokey. My throat has now hurt since the concert nine days ago. It is about the same every day, not really painful but there, kind of like a tight feeling at the bottom of my throat near my chest. The muscles in my upper chest are tight feeling. I know that I will not be going to any bars, concerts or any thing smokey for the rest of my life! Thank you for reading!

Avatar m tn Last night I had to end up to go to emergency again due to the chest pain and food stucked in the throat and chest. My blood test for HELICOBACTER PYLORI AB is 1.62 which is positive. Today I felt pressure and food on my chest and something stuck in my throat the whole day. I am so afraid now. I schedule another appt with my primary physician the next two days. My question is how severe it is if HELICOBACTER PYLORI AB is 1.62. Does my sypmtom relate to cancer?
Avatar n tn I started today with a cough, and upper chest pain caused by the coughing, I feel a little phlegm there, no fever, little tickle in the throat, no aches, no sore throat, no nasal issues. Upper chest feels a little burning. Basically at the base of my neck, otherwise, I feel ok.
Avatar m tn Also when I lay on my back I have this heavy annoying chest pressure in my very upper chest bone and my lower throat, and this is the same area that sometimes has a throbbing forceful pulsation when my pulse gets up. I don't have a tachycardia during the day unless there is some sort of stress to set it off and then the pulsating is more uncomfortable (always the very upper chest in the center).
Avatar m tn Chest defends and protects the breathe and breathing system. When the throat is hurt, the chest must bear some pain or the body is in other major diseases. Browny/reddy colour only appears when the body's immune system begins to decay with the digestive organs. It is the level 2 symptom to this problem. Aching from not coughing is the body's way to protect from diseases and to signal the brain that it needs immune system reboost such as Immunity-FX and soothing aloe.
Avatar f tn Hi, cramping, sore throat and bloating are common after upper GI endoscopy. These signs and symptoms will improve with time. If you're concerned or quite uncomfortable, call your doctor. Regards.
Avatar m tn I wake up today and the pain is still there. The pain is located in the chest area and the upper back, like between the shoulder blades. It really only hurts when I breath in or bend over. Otherwise it's pretty much non-existent. It also seems to become a bit more acute when I lie down, making sleep a little difficult. Now when I first woke up and felt the pain was still there, I called 911 and got a couple of EMTs to show up at my apartment.
Avatar n tn I'm 33 yrs old and I've been having this very odd pain that I can only describe as feeling like a razor blade is slowly making its way around deep inside my chest, traveling slowly into my upper spine area, and up into my throat. It's a pain like no other I've almost paralyzes me and causes me to just not want to talk or move or be bothered until it passes....lasts for minutes up to 30 minutes.
Avatar n tn You see, when we eat, it causes pressure in our upper abdomen, and this can push up toward the throat and upper back through the diaphram. Actually, hiatal hernias can mimic lots of things, such as heart attacks. Some folks have them so badly, they can not even swallow. Do you experience any acid reflux or heartburn, these are also tell-tale signs of a hiatal hernia.
Avatar n tn I have a thump in my throat that I know these severe chest pains will follow, they seem to also rotate from my back to front chest, upper chest tightness like someone is pulling something from each side of the chest, then to the middle. it last about 5 to 8 min, I drink a cup of hot water and it goes away . the pain makes me take in breaths of air.
Avatar n tn also had swollen nodes in left knee area and elbow area and under arm pits. went back to doctor who examined throat and found white pus spots on tonsils and throat area for which penecilin was pescribed and this did clear up but random swelling and pain has since developed all over my body in the sites where my lymph nodes and glands are present. it is now july and after an mri scan the hospital doctor has said that it showed that my lymph glands and nodes were unusually large.
Avatar n tn I had an upper endoscopy yesterday. I have a sore throat, which I expected, but I am also experiencing dull pain in my chest, the same kind of sensation I felt when the tube was being passed. The nurse I spoke to today told me that this was not usual and to let the dr. know if it continues. Everything else seems fine. Is this kind of pain one might experience after an upper endocopy?
Avatar n tn i'm having sharp pains in my chest and upper back feels like it's right under my shoulder blades. constant sharp pain feels like somethings in my throat as well. I thought it was heart burn as i suffer from acid refluc but i took a zantac a hour and a half ago and there is no relief.
Avatar n tn Hi! I've been having this terrible pain swallowing that has now lasted about 6 months. My doc thinks it's GERD but the Nexium he's given me doesn't seem to work. Basically, every 4-6 days, I'll wake up with chest pains. It feels like something is shooting up my throat and into my chest. Eventually, these pains go away but for the rest of the day, it's very painful to swallow. It even hurts to swallow saliva. Within 24 hours the pain is gone and I feel fine again.
Avatar f tn I'm having chest pain, right between my breasts. It comes suddenly, and it feels like the need to burp, but I can burp. It also comes when I take a deep breath. This has been happening since yesterday at about 1pm(EST), and the Endoscopy was at 10am(EST). I'm worried about it. It was my first time going through surgery. I'm not having any stomach pain, or throat pain, just the chest pain. Any ideas on what it could be???
