Complicated: Carotid surgery doesn't generally cause dizziness but his underlying cerebrovascular disease might. Strokes involving the cerebellum (which is not supplied by the carotids) cause intense dizziness. I simply cannot think of anyway that carotid surgery or stroke would cause a lump on the chest which seems to be a separate issue.

Ultrasound. : It is unusual for blood clots in the calf to cause severe pain. However, the test is simple. Get an ultrasound to rule this out because you already have a personal history of deep vein thrombosis.

Yes if not improved: If you are still hurting without any real improvement or if it is feeling worse, then a MRI would be indicated unless the pain is mild and not affecting your life.

Lots of ways: Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Ibuprofen mostly. Gargling with warm salt water, one fourth tsp salt per 8 ounces. Chloraseptic spray, Benzocaine throat losenges. If more severe pain may have an infection, go see a doctor. For bad viral pharyngitis we sometimes use steroids, and for strep you need an antibiotic.

Situational symptoms: When your symptoms are so situational (distress occurs when you are in a particular place or circumstance but rarely occur other times) then stress must be entertained as a possibility (like fear of heights, ladders, flying, etc.) phobias are readily treatable, once you've ruled out medical problems that can prompt identical symptoms. See your doctor as to how to go about addressing this issue.
