Hi everyone! My apologies if this has been asked on here before. Has anyone ever developed a sensation in their throat that feels like there is something in the throat, or at times feels like you are being strangled? This started for me about 5 months ago....and seems to be a chronic thing....sometimes it will go away for a week or two, or even a day or two but then returns. A few doctors suggested GERD.....one thought maybe anxiety.....I wonder if it is muscle related....I don't wake up with it and it seems to show up halfway through the day and I feel relief when I eat something. I just started seeing an osteopath and she things it is the upper esophagus spasming, and tells me she will work on it at next treatment. I am going to call for an appointment to get a modified barium swallowing test where they look at how the muscles are working....I am not sure where they go from there, but I am not game for having an endoscopy shoved down my throat because I don't feel that is going to prove anything. I wondered though if this is peri related only because leading up to this I have had so many hormonal issues (according to gynocologist and urologist) and it seems that this has followed those things.....I also had shingles in February of last year, so I feel like my body has taken quite the whipping the last little while.....just curious if any of you have this, have you been diagnosed or treated, or better yet have you been able to get rid of it?
