Common Questions and Answers about Tightness in throat and upper chest


Avatar n tn I find it hard to get a breath accompanied by a heavy tight feeling in my chest and my throat feels like it is closing up. It hurts worse when I take a deep breath and it is hard to swallow. I did have a cold and then could not seem to shake the cough. The doc still insists that it is part of the Gerd. What should I do, nobody will listen to me.

Avatar m tn Hello, I am 32 years old (6 feet, 208 pounds) and I have been experiencing upper chest / throat tightness & lightheadedness every day since 12/15/10 ... Driving me crazy. I can breathe normally. I've never had a fever, no aches, no pains, no injuries. I have had 2 EKG's, a brain MRI/MRA, a brain CT scan, chest xray, blood tests, stress test, thyroid test, & my blood pressure checked on the regular. All of these tests came back OK.
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 f tn I get burning in my throat and chest, reflux, nausea, sternum pain, feeling like there is something in my throat, and even back pain when it gets bad. Do those of you who have these issues also get chest tightness and the feeling of something sitting on your upper chest?I'd say it's right at the top of my chest and sometimes it feels like something is either sitting there or pulling. I've heard that these can be gastro symptoms, but I wanted to see if anyone here experienced it?

Avatar m tn jpg I suffer from constant shortness of breath and aching in the diaphragm area, without wheeze or tightness of the throat or upper chest. It is worse when I am supine and upon waking. I understand that my arms are raised in the scan and that it is a stacked image CT, but my diaphragm looks higher than any comparison image that I can find online. Due to my cervical radiculopathy, I am concerned about possible partial diaphragm paralysis. Any opinions appreciated.
Avatar f tn Always when I eat Chinese food, my throat will start gradually tightening up to the point where I can't eat, my throat and upper chest feel like they're on fire, my eyes water -- this lasts for two or three minutes and then it goes away and I can finish my meal. Do you think there is something in the food which causes this?
Avatar n tn i have been experiencing tightness in my ears, throat and chest. The most severe tightness symptom is my ears, head and throat. Is the common to any prognosis?
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 m tn The next day, I developed this very highly ANNOYING sensation that my chest is too heavy, and I mostly feel it in the center or upper center, but I also feel it up to my lower front neck, and back down around my frontal and side ribs area as well as my lower sternum sometimes. In other words, it is a widespread sensation surrounding my lungs and chest area.
