This is the most disturbing thing in my anxiety. :(
I know about the "lump in throat" sensation, i have it too, but its often more than a lump, it feels like my throat is thinner than before, like its gonna close.
Some days i have also had swallowing problems, nothing solid will go down no matter how i try.
People tell me its psychological but idk... i can feel my throat muscles tighten and loosen up and move about, and when i had bad swallowing probs my throath would kinda "pop" every time i swallowed, like a muscle or a nerve being released from constriction and then going back again. Not surprisingly, taking muscle relaxants has helped this issue some, but not completely.
Can my throat actually close and make me choke? I have heard of laryngeal spasms where the vocal cords close and people cant breathe... this kinda scares me.. apparently nobody has died from it tho, just fainted. Still not very relieving information...
Are my muscles actually tight, or am i imagining it? Or are they tight because i am imagining it?
