Does it feel similar to when your sick with a cold or flu, your throat feels a little tight and sore by your lymph nodes? Or even when you try to keep from crying or do cry? When I get really really nervous or stressed my throat feels tight, sore, and voice gets shaky.


Yes it seems like I have a cold and is sore throat I keep swallowing every minute I been nervous about this since last night think something is really wrong :(


I assure you its the anxiety or maybe you could be coming down with a cold or flu? Please don't worry abut it being something worse and more serious. You'll be okay, just take some deep breathes and try to relax. I hope you feel better.
