Last December I had really bad anxiety. Shortness of breath, tight throat and chest, racing heart, etc etc. All these symptoms are gone now but I have something new that is bothering me. It feels like a sore throat that comes and goes. Almost like my throat (at the very back of my tounge and very top of my throat) is swollen but it doesnt hurt or anything and I can eat just fine. I woke up at 8 am today and was fine until like 1pm. I've gone to the doctor but she said she can't recommand more xrays because I've been through a lot of radiation in my checkups for anxiety so she refferred me to an ent. The ent said that they wouldnt perform the test where a camera is insterted through ur nose to check the throat bc it makes you feel out of breath and they didn't want me to panic.
Any advice? Is this really just anxiety or should I insist a checkup? When i get this sensation then I start to feel out of breath and panic. I never had this until I started to take Escitalopram and stopped my antidepressant because I thought it was causing my sore throat and I couldnt take it since it feels like the throat is closing up.
