just recently i have had loads of niggling problems.
at the moment i'm waiting for cardiology to check me out as i keep getting a pressure/tightness in chest etc
for a few weeks now i have had this feeling of something stuck in my oesophagus, sort of where adams apple would be and the bit that dips in above collar bones . it has varied from feeling like a hair or something to feeling really choked (as it is today)
i spent all last week hardly eating (lost 6lbs) because every time i did i got stomach pain. i have also had the odd pain in my ears , but i'm assuming thats notn connected.
i use beconase nasal spray, could it be that do you think ?
dh thinks i'm a hypochondriac!
the doctor can't see me until tomorrow, he'll probably aggree with dh.
i just can't cope keep feelin yuk i suddenly panicked yesterday that something drastic was happening to me and i was alone with the kids
Could it be anxiety related ? Lots of the clients I work with in psychotherapy have similar symptoms - chest tightness, difficulty swallowing etc. Ignore me if not relevant - but some of these physical symptoms can be brought on by anxiety.
I get this too. Feels like there is something in my throat but when I swallow it doesn't go down. I think it's anxiety, but I have asthma too so that might affect it. Sometimes food gets stuck in my throat too.
Cheeryface - maybe you could ask to be referred to a psychologist or therapist. The 'stuck in the throat' problem can often be linked to a fear of expressing one's needs clearly or communicating difficult things with others.
Hi Cheeryface, it crossed my mind that it could be your thyroid?
If you are hyperthyroid, you'd have a goiter (swollen thyroid gland) which is exactly where you describe your throat feeling (i actually was first diagnosed with an underactive thyroid when i went to the gp with lumpy throat feeling). It also causes symtoms like anxiety, racing heart, weight loss, heavy feeling on chest etc. So quite a few of the ones that you listed. So, you could ask your gp for a thyroid function test.
I get the feeling of a lump or swelling in my throat too. I am experiencing it again right now, but it comes & goes. when I went to the gp about it, I was told in was probably anxiety related, which figures as it seems to come after I have got myself very stressed for one reason or another.
