Ears popping and tight throat has to be anxiety I get that too and sometimes my eyes water! Try not to worry too much, you should be okay xx if you are super concerned maybe call your doctor if it doesn’t go away within a day or two

Well over a month I’ve been back-and-forth Dr to doctor

But does it pass? Or do you have those feelings the whole day?

It like come and go but is very annoying you know how it feels when you’re on the airplane just imagine feeling that our day off and on

Oh yeah that makes sense lol. Maybe talk to your doctor about going on anxiety meds or ask them what’s best for you. I recommend trying mindfulness so you can get your mind off of it, the more you focus on it the more it could get worse kinda thing, well that’s what I learned from my experience! You’ll be okay :)

Good morning I am so over doctors these days. I’m on calozapone for it but not really helping anymore

have you read the side-effects of these drugs which are pretty strong-----and you say you felt better to begin with so how did you feel then ….

Reply

Hi yes I have and I’ve been on that for quite some time now so I’m pretty much aware of the side effects and things like that

Hi Veelala, you could have sinus infection, your doctor will be able to diagnose but I have those symptoms with sinusitis. .ear pressure like your heads going to explode, eyeballs hurt with pressure and water, throat sore and headache, even your teeth hurt. Hope this is helpful. :)
