Hello everyone, I've been having really bad episodes of a "tight throat" lately and it always sends me to a panic attack where I start to feel like I can't breathe. I noticed today I was close to the refrigerators at the supermarket and that's when it got worse and another day I got the symptoms soon as I ate ice cream. So I am pretty sure that it gets activated by the cold. I had the same problem a few months back but everything went to normal eventually, only to return now.
Has anybody else experianced anything similar?
I want to see a ENT doctor just to make sure that everything is alright with my throat but last time I was there he told me that I would need to do a endoscopy exam and that he feared this would be hard for me because of my panic and he didn't want my visit to be a nightmare. Therefore I never did the test. This worries me because I also have a slight whistling sound when I breathe in and out when I am in bed ever since I got the flu last December.
Is there another test I can run to check up my throat tightness? It would be really reassuring to know my throat is ok so I can try to control these symptoms.
