Hello all, I am having severe problems with tightness in my throat when I try to swallow. I know I have TMS issues (they run in the family), and I have issues with heart palpitations and back pain that come and go. A doctor ruled out anything serious. The swallowing problem is getting worse. I just started college and am stressed with the work load. It doesn't happen every time I eat. But it's making it hard to get enough calories in. Any thoughts? Is this a common TMS issue? Thanks.
