Throat problems and anxiety

Common Questions and Answers about Throat problems and anxiety


Avatar n tn Recently she was taken to an allergist and had no allergies, however, he thought she could have VCD. Went to another dr. and he believes it could be acid reflux and anxiety but started her on zoloft. This was about three weeks ago. Her throat clears for a few days and then we are back to square one. Her throat is swollen again. She has missed a lot of school with this and it is continually catching up.
Avatar n tn I followed up the next week with an ENT who said everything looked normal and seems like I have thick post nasal drip and anxiety. It went away for about a week and now is back. Cardiologist said everything is normal. Is there some other test I should have done to figure out what this could be or should I just listen to the fact that it's anxiety? I have also been having some little pains above the right breast and under the left and right breast like near my rib cage. Please help??
Avatar m tn Im 37 years old male, start of 2014 I got really sick, lost 17kg in two weeks and started having non stop throat problems, My local GP is useless! All he has diagnosed me with is anxiety and has given me somac for acid reflux which is not helping. It feels like someone is strangling me all the time, my glands are always swollen and I'm always spitting out a thick white phlem, plus coughing up a green & yellow moucus that is in a clear thick phlem .

Avatar n tn FFirst do you suffer from anxiety or is your throat causing you anxiety but if you do suffer then i can say it can definitely be a manifestation of anxiety if you already been to the doc.
Avatar f tn Hello~I would first see another doctor, preferably one that deals with allergies or nose, ears and throat problems. It appears to me that you need a specialist instead of just a regular primary care doctor. The acid reflux could be a cause for the throat problems, I have it, and it can make my throat "burn" at times. As to fluid in the ears and sinuses, I have not heard of them being affected, but, that does not mean it can't happen. Sounds like allergies to me.
Avatar n tn Anyways, monday night I started to feel a little sore and swollen in my throat, my ears were hurting and my glands were kinda sore. I went to the ER and the triage nurse looked at my throat and said that my tonsils and uvula (the little punching bag) are really swollen and red, but no pus, and no fever, but i felt warm to the tough. She kinda gave me the impression that something was really wrong.
Avatar f tn I had a similar experience to you, with a sore throat, white coating, and raised anxiety levels (caused by the virus). Pins and needles in the legs also. Full details are here on my blog: http://chronicsorethroat.wordpress.
Avatar n tn I had them taken out a few months ago and now im still having throat problems.. or at least I think.. With anxiety I feel like I dont know whats wrong with me.. or if something is.. or if its all in my head... I dono what to do... I refuse to take meds.. for anything.. ever.. So.. I feel stuck.. and I dont like this feeling.
Avatar f tn Also, It feels like my throat is closed up and when i eat it it feels like its getting stuck in my throat and I cant breathe. I went to the doctors and they sent me to get an x-ray, ekg, and blood taken. Now they are sending me tuesday to get an ecocardiograma. All of my test so far have came back fine. They said it might be anxiety/stress related. What do you think this could be?
Avatar m tn GAD may be making your other problems worse, if not the cause of them. Assuming your doctors have ruled out other problems already, what did they do for your GAD? Most, if not all, of your symptoms could very well be anxiety but you can't rule anything out. There are many free sources of mental health care. Call your local library for references. Seek help for your GAD and I think you'll find relief for most, if not all , the symptoms you are having.
Avatar f tn Yes, I have been diagnosed with anxiety, but for a while, that went away. I had the normal anxiety symptoms, and when it went away I had a slice of normalcy, but then it came back with the swallowing problem. It is not fun. Have you improved?
5696127 tn?1381086197 Hi, I had too many symptoms from 10 months ago till now, I went to many doctors and specialist and run many blood test, including 3 hiv ab tests and all were negative and fine, but my anxiety about HIV is still exists and its killing me, Dry cough ( not much), feverish feeling but no fever, itchy skin specially at afternoons are my symptoms. Plus I have some problems with my mouth and tongue: 1. White tongue specially on the half of it that is close to my throat 2.
Avatar f tn I also have been having problems with my throat feeling right and feeling like there is something stuck in it. I have been having strange feelings in my feet. It is hard to describe. It feels like it's on the inside of my feet and I will also feel it in my stomach and chest. It feels like it has to do with my nerves or something. I also have like a shock feeling in my stomach sometimes. Its like I get a little bit of adrenaline for no reason.
Avatar f tn i know right now, im clenching my jaw a lot, causing tmj problems... my neck is sore and tight... and it *****... you dont realize how stress/anxiety can make so many different muscles contract etc. good luck, and let us know how it goes. im sure you'll be fine!
Avatar f tn My jaw becomes tense and it affects my throat and swallowing when I am having anxiety issues. Klpnopin really helped me.
Avatar m tn I would to know if there is a connection between dental problems, and anxiety(panic attacks). I have been with many Dr s here in Ontario, and I still has no resolution for the issues. i have been placed on Chlonazipam, though I still suffer the dental pain. I do not have enough money to deal with all of my dental issues, though I am getting some treatment from an oral Dr. I would appreciate all the help that you can offer me.
Avatar f tn Now it is in August and i am having throat swelling and diffuculty with breathing. I have no energy at night. Has anyone here ever had symptoms like this. It really gets difficult to function around this. I am going to the doctor and they have run tests but they cant find anything wrong yet. Depression is really starting to set in. I didnt want to take antidepressents but may have to try it.Thanks for reading this and any helop would be appreciated.
Avatar m tn I am a 23y/o 5'8" 155 lb. non-smoker, and have been experiencing frustrating throat issues recently. I am a long distance runner and the first thing I experienced was SOB on high exertion. When that started (about 2.5 months ago) my anxiety peaked and I started feeling everything from chest pain to dizzyness to full blown panic attacks.
Avatar f tn past the leg cramos and muscle I am having swallowing problems. SO bad that I failed a Gastric Emptying Test and go to see the Doc about that tomorrow. COuld anxiety actually cause the muscles in the esophagus to spasm or quit moving normally?
Avatar n tn t seem to have problems doing anything athletic, only when you think about it. Could be anxiety, or it could be something else, but whatever the reason it seems like you are doing it to yourself.
