I HAVE READ EVERYONES PROBLEMS AND MINE IS SIMILAR WHEN IT COMES TO MUCUS IN THE THROAT WHICH IS JUST STARTED A WEEK AGO BUT, NO ONE HAS MENTIONED THE TIGHTENING FEELING AROUND MY NECK, THE TIGHTENING FEELS ITS ON THE OUTSIDE, IT SEEMS LIKE IF SOMETHING LIKE A RIBBON AROUND THE NECK BEING TIGHT. I KNOW IT SOUND CRAZY AND THERE MIGHT BE A BETTER WAY TO DESCRIBE IT BUT, I'm DOING MY BEST I CAN. JUST DRIVING IN A CAR SOMETIMES I HAVE TO PUT MY HAND UP TO MY NECK BECAUSE, IT FEELS LIKE SOMETHING IS THERE.
I KNOW ITS NOT LIKE MY OTHER PROBLEM I HAD FOR 10 YEARS WITH THE INSIDE OF MY THROAT I NEVER TOLD ANYONE I JUST HAD TO DEAL WITH IT. THEN IT GOT TO THE POINT TO WHERE I WAS EATING BABY FOOD AND CHOKING ON WATER, A BUBBLE OF WATER WOULD FLOAT UP AND DOWN MY THROAT AND HURT MY THROAT SO BAD, SOMETIMES IT WOULD LINGER FOR A COUPLE OF HOURS UP AND DOWN MY THROAT. THEN I WENT TO THE DOCTOR, HE SAID I HAD TO HAVE MY THROAT STRETCHED, I THOUGHT HE WAS A LITTLE CRAZY BECAUSE I HAD NEVER HEARD OF STRETCHING SOMEONES THROAT. I FOUND THE PROPER DOCTOR. HE STRETCH MY THROAT TWICE WITHIN A 2 WEEK TIME, HE DID IT TWICE BECAUSE THE FIRST TIME AFTER A WEEK I WAS STILL HAVING SOME RESTRICTIONS SO HE DID IT THE SECOND TIME AND I HAVEN'T HAD ANY PROBLEMS EATING ANYTHING AND ITS BEEN 5 YEARS. IT WAS THE BEST DECISION I MADE.
I JUST WANTED YOU TO KNOW I KNOW THE DIFFERENCE IN THE FEELING ON THE INSIDE BEING RESTRICTED OPPOSED TO THE OUTSIDE FEELING TIGHT. IF SOMEONE HAS HAD THE SAME EXPERIENCE AND HAS BEEN GIVEN WHY THE TIGHTENING PLEASE RESPOND.
Im sorry you seem to have such an uncomfortable problem. I would recomend seeing your doctor again. Im not sure what could be causing this. I know sometimes when Im really stressed and my shoulders hurt my neck is very tense and tight it feels like my throat is closing a bit.
