    Hi christine63500

    I have this problem quite regularly. I have been told that it is a form of spasm. When it happens, I tend to drink cold fluids for a while. I find that this helps.

    I don't know about yourself, but I find that sometimes it feels like I have a small lump on the one side as well...does this sound familiar?

      hi mark yes definitely feels like a small lump too, its odd because its not every single time i swallow and sometimes sort of depends the position my neck is in - sounds mad and hard to explain. didnt you find swallowing cold fluids hurt too? how long do this spasms last with you ?

      I have this problem at least 3-4 times a day. Most of the time I have cold drinks, whether it is cold tea, coffee or water and food I tend to suck frozen peas.

      If I try anything that is warm/hot during a spasm then I start to choke and start losing my breath.

      But I have noticed that my airway has started to narrow as well. As of yet I have not done anything about this as I seem able to cope at the moment.

      But by all means get yourself checked out. I won't go just yet as I am dealing with plenty at the moment in relation to medical issues and don't need anymore yet, as I am being treated by three hospital's at this time.

    you could have glands up on one side of your throat ,thats good because it means there doing there job and tryin gto fight something of .

    if it gets worse see your gp find out what your dealing with then maybe someone will have some better advice . you can try using a silver and saline nasel spray and the same in  sore throat spray . i think silver works well for most things .razz
