I get tightness/tension in my throat, or the sensation that my throat is closing up, at seemingly random times. It's been happening in increasing frequency over the past couple months. It simply feels like my throat is not open all the way, like there's a lump or a "frog" sitting in there. It obstructs my breathing, and is quite concerning. If I tilt my head back, it feels like my throat "opens up" more and I can breathe more easily. But at regular sitting posture it feels tough to breathe and like I'm not getting enough air. I of course can't help but worry my throat will close up and I won't be able to breathe. I'm a young, healthy and very active person. Runner, cyclist, active job, so I am in decent shape. But this feeling in my throat almost gives the impression that I'm huffing and puffing for air from being out of shape, though that can't be the case. Could this be TMS? I don't notice that it is "triggered" by anything. Could it possibly be a medical condition? I tried mentioning this to a doctor but they're all yahoos and I can't trust what they tell me. Does anyone have personal experience with feeling like their throat is closing? Thank y'all!
