I have the feeling of a tight throat, sometimes of a lump in my throat. I had the manometry test done a few weeks ago and my results were pretty normal, according to my ENT. I found that odd because this symptom drives me crazy, and I sometimes have trouble swallowing bread and even my own saliva, but apparently I did just fine with the test. I've now been referred to a surgeon. By no means am I saying it is in your head, but maybe the problem feels worse than it actually is. I think I'm just very annoyed by this symptom and really conscious of it.
