Tightness in throat and jaw

Common Questions and Answers about Tightness in throat and jaw


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 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 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 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 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.
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.
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 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 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 I am having severe pain in the center of my chest followed by throat and jaw pain. Normally lasts about 15 min. Has happened approx 8 times in the last 5 days.
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 f tn Ok, so before I start, let me say that I have already made an appointment with an ENT, but it's not for 2 weeks and I'm concerned. Currently: I have pain under my tongue where it's connected (started recently), pain/tightness - what feels like a super tight muscle knot/ball - at the back base of my jaw right below the ear, ear tube pain, ringing in my ears, more so on the right side, which also hurts more.
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 f tn I have the tightness in my throat, it also seems like it goes into my sinuses and face. I do have GERD and some of those other symptoms but they did a thyroid test and said it was fine..maybe I should be getting another one done.
Avatar f tn My test came negative. Now I have started experiencing tightness in my throat and neck. It is there everyday. I feel as if there is a lump in my throat. Can advise me what is this problem related to ? I also feel though my test came negative but, I do have some thyroid problem. I feel like wearing sweater when I visit mall even during summers, I have too much sensitivity to cold. Please advise. I will be visiting my endocrinologist after 3 weeks from now.
Avatar f tn i have got tightness in the front of my throat some times worse than others. I have a thyroid nodule been and had it tested not cancerous , small 1.5cm doctors very little help . they suggested a few different reasons for throat discomfort .
Avatar f tn i have tightness in my throat can this be caused from anxiety /stress ? very hard feeling comes and goes .
Avatar f tn not as severe. i have recently been feeling a tightness in my chest again and facial pain around my jaw and temples. my eyes are also in a lot of pain, they burn, feel like they are going to pop out and also i feel a shock like pain in them. i also see flashes sometimes. i went to an eye doctor a month ago and he said i was fine. My neck/throat are also hurt and feel tense. when i press down on the back of my head on shoulders/back it feel like im pressing on a bruise.
Avatar f tn All of your symptoms are common to a TMJ disorder called disc displacement with reduction, in other words you go off and on to the disc when you open and close. This can create clicking and/or popping sounds in the jaw joint. It likely not be related to your Lumineers, but it's not impossible. Depends on if your bite was altered or not, but usually not. Find a competent dentist well trained in treating TMJ disorders--not many dentists are very well trained.
Avatar m tn About 8 weeks ago had a sore throat, went to Dr and was diagnosed with Strep and took medication for it. After 2 weeks still tightness in throat. Started getting tingling in my fingers and toes. About a week later stiffness in jaw, difficulty opening jaw wide, tingling in face. This week my legs mainly my thighs have been sore and my legs feel really heavy when i walk. Also my back has gotten sore as if I have difficulty standing up straight.
Avatar m tn Then I started getting some tightness In the base of my neck/throat and around my Adam’s apple. I went to the doctor he examined my neck didn’t feel anything and he ordered a neck ultra sound and blood test I guess to check my thyroid. Both of those came back normal. Over the last 6 weeks I’ve been having some digestion problems… lose bowels movements… lots of gas ect…. (I am also prescribed 20 mg of Dexedrine).
700966 tn?1228661931 Steve, I had this very symptom and didnt eat for a week,felt as something was stuck in my throat. I went to the ear nose and throat Dr. and he ran a scope to see if something was wronge.Needless to say I just walked out with a script for XANAX. Nothing more than my anxiety.It can cause all kinds of symptoms. But I agree with Remar you need to get checked out ! Better safe than sorry :-) Hope you feel better really soon!!!! Keep us updated!

Avatar f tn For the past 3 months or so I have had this tightness in my chest and throat! Its horrible! There is NO pain, just the uncomfortable feeling that I aint getting enough air! I went to the doctor a few weeks back, bloods were normal, ecg normal, oxygen was 98%! And lungs and chest sounded clear through stethascope!had 2 ECGS,2 oxygen tests, I am a constant worrier,always thinking I'm dying when in reality I'm probably not! Does any1 else have this problem and know how to ease the feeling?
Avatar m tn Now I still have diarrhea, but now I have chest pains (more tightness than anything, a sore throat, neck, and jaw. When I try to eat I feel sick, but shortly after and any other time I feel great besides the other symptoms. I'm 21 years old, could this just be a common cold that's going around? Of can it be more serious? Thanks.
Avatar n tn I have chest pain that radiates into the left arm pit,thru to the back shoulder blade and sharply up to the left lower jaw in area of lower second bicuspid and first molar.It can also radiate into my left cheekbone. It can be mild,or severe,and not all signs together or in sequence and usually accompanies chest tightness/crushing and shortness of breath. Women can be very different from men in their signs, having only tiredness of a symptom of an impending cardiac event.Joan.
