It started on August 2011 the 8th around 8pm I was eating but had some difficulty getting it down . The discomfort in my throat & neck quickly spiralled out of control and I had several panic attacks with a constant urge to keep swallowing. I paced up and down like a nervous wreck for over 12 hours desperately trying to convince myself it was entirely mental.
Since then it's never really gone away and has put my life on hold.
-tinnitus in right ear
-panic attacks (rare)
-urge to swallow
-stifled breathing (rare)
-thick saliva / phlegm at back of throat (often)
-feeling of hair stuck in throat (often)
-feeling of someone strangling neck with an invisible wire (often)
-feeling of discomfort around adams apple area (often)
-discomfort in neck when lying down (often)
-GP guitar behind right eardrum / congestion
-Barium swallow -VE
-ENT tube thing down throat -VE
It's gotten worse this year. I now have difficulty swallowing most of the time and frequently panic.
I'm thinking I should get a MRI scan of my neck as I can't take much more of this.
If it was mental why does it strike so randomly?
