No: The two aren't related. I'm curious about your question, though. Has a doctor diagnosed you with these, or did you google symptoms and come to these diagnoses yourself? More common than these two diagnoses would be anxiety causing headache and throat tightness. That might be the commonality between your symptoms, and psychologists on HealthTap are here to help you.

No relationship: Maybe you could converse with one of our doctors via a Concierge visit and clarify all of this.
