It's just so scary. My throat gets really tight, which is sometimes just a muscular sensation. But right now, it feels like it's pressing part of my vocal cords closed. I took an Ativan a bit ago; that might relax it - and my mental state. All of my doctors, including TWO ENTs tell me there's nothing that could stop me from breathing. But it's just such a horribly frightening sensation, and then I start paying extra close attention, just in case it gets worse than usual and does cut off my breath.
I have another appointment with the good ENT tomorrow. Pray that I can hold out. Right now, I just want to rush off to the ER or her office and beg them to look in my throat, but by the time that's done, it'll probably be over. *sigh*
