After a long struggle with my shortness of breathe and throat feeling tight since December I finally begged my doctor to give me a soft tissue x-ray of the neck just to clear my mind. I have also been having a slight whistling when breathing (especially when I'm lying down) since a bad fever in December just as my anxiety kicked in and that has bothered me a lot but doctors always disregarded it because my lungs sound fine. Anyway I got the xray back and all seems clear except this sentance:
"Tiny ovoid lucency near the vallecula or base of the epiglottis which could represent air within the vallecula or potentially a tiny cyst."
It goes on to say that there are no abnormalities and it does not suggest further testing to evaluate.
Ever since I got the result back I can't stop thinking my shortness of breathe is from that "potential tiny cyst". When looking up Vallecular Epiglottis Cyst it suggests that such cysts can block the airway and need removal with surgery. Idk what to think anymore. Anyone?
