Sometimes out of nowhere my throat will swell up. It isn't painful and doesn't seem to inhibit breathing at all, but it is annoying at least and freaks me out sometimes at worst. It feels like I'm being strangled by a really weak guy, and I can feel the back of my throat balloon up, kind of like when a cold is just starting up, minus the soreness. I have no food allergies that I know of (and it often happens long after I've eaten anyways) and the frequency doesn't seem to change with seasonal allergies, which I don't usually have either.
 
My dad has panic disorder too, and tells me it's just one of the anxiety/panic symptoms, but I sort of don't believe him and wonder if it's from something more serious. Does anyone else ever experience this regularly?

Almost like the lump in throat feeling... is that what you mean?

Cuz that's what it feels like for me... try drinking lots of water...

I have the same issue...

I usually get this at LEAST twice a week... the swelling feeling

I get the same thing a few times a week. I can even put my hand around my thout and it will feel swollen. I can also feel my pulse beating real hard on my neck when this is happening. Hope your feeling better soon hun.

I get it too and I truly do believe it is A/P related
WE have things in body that will do that to fight off some infections

** reason now that they rarely take out tonsils unless absoultely necessary since they found there is more benefit to haviing tonsils ( fight infections) than not
Kittie >....: We all have heartbeat in throat as that is where your jugalr vein is and also have or can feel it in tummy too
We also have one in feet called Petael Pulse.......this is used especially when feet are swollen and for seniors .......In the middle of foot just directly below toes ..........
Just some trivia lol

BTW ,......Gargle with salt water ( warm) and it might help you it does me

you need to get a doc to look  at your throat to see if any swelling is there, if so this should be investigated

anxiety sufferers can feel swelling or a lump in the throat when nothing is actually there

I Do have Panic/Anxiety and that is one of the first things that happens to me when i get anxious.. i get a lump in my throat.. i can breath fine.. but it sort of feels like a struggle... very annoying and scary
this quote sometimes helps me when i am anxious, panicky or feeling extremely agoraphobic... "Wherever you go, there you are."
