Question: P[b]LEASE HELP! Having [/b]problems throat, chest
|mdonohue - Tue Nov 16, 2004 6:03 pm|
I need serious help. I scheduled a drs appointment but it's not until a couple of days. Ever since yesterday am, when I wa easting breakfast, I felt like I had swalloed too quick or I didn't chew my food, So there was a BIG lump in my throat (couldn't tell if it had been there since I woke up or was what I was eating) I thought all day it would go away and it didn't. It felt like there was a huge lump in my throat, like I was about to cry or something was stuck. No trouble breathing or eating, however, food does hurt a little as it goes down. Today, it's been worse. I still feel like there is a lump, food hurts, but now there is this major Chest pain along with it. I have never had any past problems with my heart, I just had a physcal and I am in top shape, I don't smoke, occasionally drink, and I've never had any problems with ulcers, Heartburn etc. I also feel OK otherwise, no sore throat or cold. I am seriously scared, I am in pain and I jsut downed some tums with no help. I am only 28, I shouldn't have anything like this. PLEASE HELP!!! What could this be????

A lump in the throat could be due to some infection, inflammation, or even Anxiety disorders. You will need to get yourself examined to determine possible causes.
