Tightness in throat

Just wondered if anyone had experienced a really tight sensation in their throat? Almost like you are being strangled or have food stuck in your throat.

If you put THROAT in the search box all sorts of comments come up. I have posted on this before When it happens it feels like I cannot breath but you need to keep calm, stand up and drink some water and then it passes. Bertie

Sorry to hear about the tightness in your throat and associated feelings. Can I suggest that you ask for a referral to see a speech and language therapist. I know your speech isn’t affected but these professionals deal with all sorts of difficulties in that particular area, and could organise some exercises for you to do to relax your throat. It’s possible that the more you’re aware of this problem, the more you are inadvertently tensing it. Good luck.
