Tightness in throat and jaw

Common Questions and Answers about Tightness in throat and jaw


Avatar n tn since January, 1998, increased tightness in my mouth and jaw, numbness in my mouth and tongue and throat. A typical day Iwill wake up with the muscle tightness in my jaw, it seems to travel to my throat, etc. The particular problem with my throat, mouth and jaw has increased within the last couple of months. I have seen a GP, Neurologist, and finally a Rheumatologist, in late January. No diagnosis, all blood tests within normal ranges. I would appreciate any, and all suggestions.
Avatar n tn Sore throat is not a common manifestation of temporomadibular disorders. Limited jaw opening may be caused by mechanical blockage of TMJs or masticatory muscle spasm . Seeing a tmj specialist is advised.
Avatar f tn Then I started this weird feeling in my throat/tongue. Feels like there is pressure in my throat and tongue especially towards the back. Feels like someone is pushing the back of my tongue down especially on the left side while at the sametime squuezing the sides of my throat and pushing up, Then this sensation like the one you get when you suck on something sour under my tongue all the way to the back of my jaw under my ears.
Avatar n tn Some times it seems to help if i sip on a cold drink or chew gum, but it comes back soon afterwards and i have to do the same thing over and over again, and it still never goes away. It seems to be worse if i think about it. It is very frustrating and is seriously starting to affect my life. one of my favorite things to do is work out but it is very hard to exercise when you always feel like you are going to gag. I can hardly eat anything because the feeling sometimes makes me nauseated.
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 It felt like a sore throat, or like a tightness in my throat. I thought drinking lots of hot tea and letting it go down the left side would help. Since that time it has developed into a total left side body issue. I continue to have pain inside my throat, ranging from spikey pain to scratchy pain to itchy inflammatory feeling inside and outside my throat. Additionally, my chest, hip, and left knee have began to ache. The chest is particularly painful, in both the front side and the back.
Avatar m tn What should I do about clogged ears, tightness in throat, sinus pressure and jaw pain?
Avatar m tn A month and a half after still have chest, back and arm tightness along with tightness in right neck and jaw and have had persistent throat clearing. I also have issue with small yellow spots in sputem and occassionally darker streak/dots (could be blood) when I force a deep cough.
Avatar m tn A tightness in my throat (sometimes making it difficult to inhale deeply or swallow), an ongoing headache (throughout my entire head), earache (sensitivity to loud noises and just generally feeling a bit muffled) and a tension in my jaw. This began happening after I experienced a sharp pain in the right side of my throat, followed by a strange taste in my mouth, and most of these symptoms are stronger on the right side. I've felt a bit lightheaded and a bit dizzy as well.
Avatar f tn My husband has had a tightness in his jaw, not really pain and difficulty speaking for a month now. Two days ago he developed a sore throat - not the type you get from a virus. By the end of the day he garbles his words.
Avatar m tn So under my chin I have this tightness pain. It's like from my chin to throat i guess. I really think it kinda under the jaw or tongue area... Is this from stress and anxiety.
Avatar n tn I had a fever and a terrible headache for two days. My neck and jaw started to feel tight and tender as well. I examined my throat and discovered a weird ball like lump on the left side of my throat. I went to my local doctor and he prescribed me with ZPAK anti-biotics for what he called a sinus infection. I began to feel better shortly after. However, the ball like lump did not go away. Lately, some of the symptoms have came back accompanied by new ones.
Avatar f tn Yes I have the jaw tightness when I.chew and lately have also been having esophageal spasms when I eat and drink at times. Don't know if its related to my ms or not though.
Avatar m tn Its been a little over two weeks since that Thursday and I had a visit to the doctor who looked in my mouth and said my mouth/throat looked ok, and prescribed a nasal spray for post nasal drip. I have been using this for one week now but it hasn’t fixed the problem. Lately I have been experiencing this feeling a few times a day and it feels like I think about this problem a few hours a day or more.
Avatar f tn pain around ear when touching head; jaw pain; neck and throat tightness; pressure in chest, left arm, shoulder and upper back. Have seen an ENT, Gastro and endocrinologist. Had MRI of brain, normal. Bloodwork all normal for mono, Epstein Barr, celiac, plus all the routine CBC and thyroid stuff. Thank you so much for any help you can provide.
2190999 tn?1504988891 Do you ever have muscle tightness when going into and in your manic phases? I notice my neck and jaw muscles get so tense that I constantly have to remind myself to let go and relax for days at a time. I tend to clamp down on my teeth a lot and will sometimes give myself a headache. I also stop having an interest in food. Do you think this may signal my mania starting? Im kind of guessing it does, but just wanted some others opinions. Thanks.
Avatar f tn I keep getting an on and off dull ache in my chest on the left side and on/off raw/sore feeling in throat that comes and goes and feels sensitive to air. 9. On and off dull pain in head near my temple. I don't have anymore spasms in my neck so the pressure/tension headache I was having has subsided. 9. Throughout the day, I feel the need to belch before I swallow. That's pretty much it. I do work on my computer and spend 8 hours or so sitting here.
Avatar f tn I've been taking prevacid for the past month and I'm still having problems with the tightness and closing of my throat. It's not happening as often so maybe I just need to give it more time. Thank you for your help.
Avatar n tn Thought maybe it was heart burn but I also have this tightness in my neck towards the front of my throat. I can swallow without pain. No swollen lymphnodes and I can move my neck front back and from side to side. But my throat just feels tight and hasn't gone away since. It's not 4pm. Idk if this is strep or i don't even know. I should ad that I do have a cavity on a tooth at the bottom left. I don't know if that effects anything.
Avatar m tn I have nasal congestion, drainage in the throat, and tightness in the chest. I had a chest x-ray which was clear. I also had an ECG which showed the R wave diminishing. My stress test was positive but the cardiologist felt, after an exam, that this was a false positive. So now I will have a CT of the heart, but I am wondering if this is strictly allergies. My chest is tight and when talking I have to cough. Sometimes the cough is without talking.
Avatar n tn Hi! I have tightness in my throat (adams apple area). It feels like i have on a tight scarf. I have a tingling, creeping feeling in my skin in the same area and sometimes those sensations creep up to my jaw line. I have a dry mouth and a slight itch to my throat but it really not much! (esp. compared to having a cold). I have had this for several weeks. My doctor suggested that it may be an allergy and told me to take some Claritin and come see him in a week if the symtoms did not go away!
Avatar f tn Thanks for all your support. I found out that my visual evoked response results are normal; the nurse then states-"so we don't think you have MS." My immediate reply was to recall that only about 58% of probable MS patients have abnormal VER results; "so all we really know is that I don't have any damage to my optic nerves...but can't rule in or out any causes." She quietly agreed. "What's next?" was my next question.
Avatar n tn About a year ago i starting having this feeling as if something was in my throat when I swallowed...When I swallow, it sounds like a clicking sound that only I can hear accompanied by a sensation like there is a little bump in there. I thought it was nothing and finally went to see the doctor about 4 months ago because I started to have this weird pressure like feeling mostly on the right side of my throat.. the feeling like somebody gently had there hands around my throat.
671285 tn?1292660161 It started when I woke up this morning with the left temple throbbing. The pain would drift in and out throughtout the afternoon. The way I describe the throbbing is similar to a toothache except that its on my temples. I recently just got over a bad upper respiratory infection so I figured that maybe my temple was hurting from my sinuses being aggrevated with mucus, dryness, etc. In the evening, my right temple began to throb and it is doing so as I type this.
Avatar n tn Magnesium deficiency symptoms include throat problems (such as problems swallowing, tightness in throat, lump in throat or gagging), dizziness, tinnitus. Increase magnesium in the diet or supplement. Do not take magnesium supplements if you have kidney or heart problems.
1415711 tn?1286281354 My jaw sounds like rice crispies when I open it and I have alot of tension in my jaw muscles as well as the back of my neck (base of skull) that creeps up into my ears.
Avatar m tn However, they way it went down in my throat it got stuck and forced it to swallow it immediately. But what happened was that i think it ripped something inside and since then my muscles on my throat tend to tighten up when i sit down or do normally tasks. Especially it gets worse when I am in stress. I went to see an EOD doctor, did an x-ray and also an MRI. Nothing unusual was found. I even did a swallowing test and nothing unusual was found there either.
Avatar f tn yes, alot of here have the same symptoms your having. it does sound like your having panic attacks and the tightness in your through and not being able to catch your breath are some of the symptoms. i agree with michael, see your dr. about this to find out for sure what's going on. take care.
Avatar m tn Though the symptoms have subsided a great deal, it is now mid october and I still have the same sensation imn my sinuses and tightness in the throat. My doctor told me it is a virus they are studying but don't know what it is. Many people in my community have contracted it. Does anyone have a clue what I might be dealing with?
