This sensation started about 6 months ago. It feels as if someone's hands are squeezing my throat, like I'm being strangled. Also, I sometimes feel as if my throat and tongue is swelling. I also have chest and upper back pain along with neck pain. The neck pain is only in the back and the strangulation feeling is more on the sides. This feeling started 6 months ago and lasted for about 2 months then went away for a month, and then came back. I have been to every type of doctor to rule things out such as ent, gastroenterologist, neurologist, etc. nothing has been found. They thought I had hypothyroidism, but then told me I didn't because my tsh leveled out on it's own. I am now being told this sensation is globus. I feel as if I have different symptoms than that of someone that has globus. I heard a lot of people with globus don't experience pain. The strangling feeling isn't painful, but I still have pain in my neck. These throat sensations have become quite debilitating as it feels like my throats could swell shut at any moment or like someone's hands aren't on my neck. I'm just wondering if anyone has had similar problems and if they found any type of relief. Thanks
