Throat problem please help


Throat problem

When the symptoms started it feels like I have a ball, the ball disappeared then now it feels like a pressure that cause discomfort when I speak, and drink water, i am scared because my throat sound a crack in the Adam’s apple. I have breathing problems fullness in the chest and many belches.

Hi I know that feeling I used to get that sensation it’s horrible I’d eat and drink very little always afraid I’d choke and convinced something was lodged in my throat, but I promise you it’s all anxiety u need to take ur mind off it I promise it passes mine did, go on you tube and listen to Dr Claire Weekes she has helped me just to realise it’s can pass and we can all feel better, and ur not alone

I feel like I’m being choked all the time then add chest tightness and ibs

Anxiety gremlins are running riot !!!

I’ve learned that googling symptoms are very very bad they just put things in our heads that we don’t have and don’t need to think about, the symptoms we all have may vary but at least we can talk it out if I’m doubt always visit ur gp but I’m always here if u feel like a chat

Thank you and I agree Dr Google just feeds the anxiety gremlins.... and yet so addictive

I’m currently seeing my GP checking out my IBS and all symptoms but I’m not one for tablets so we will see if I give in to antidepressants

Thanks again
