My throat has wrinkles under it from this choking feeling. It feels as someone has their hand wrapped around my neck.

Swallow study: You should have a proper swallow study done. The wrinkles in the skin of your neck have nothing to do with difficulty swallowing or a choking sensation as you describe it. Moving saliva and food from our mouth down to our stomachs requires lots of muscle coordination. If that coordination is off, you can get a sensation like you describe. See a speech and swallow specialist after discussing w/ pcp.

Already seen doc, gave me amoxcillin but no help. Keep coughing up dark mucus everyday, choking feeling at night and tight neck throughout the day.

Already seen doc, gave me amoxcillin but no help. Keep coughing up dark mucus everyday, choking feeling at night and tight neck throughout the day.

Time to see doctor: If antibiotic treatment is not helping, and worrisome symptoms persist, a patient needs to be re-evaluated by a doctor. Perhaps there is an abscess in a tonsil or at the back of the throat. Perhaps a different medication is needed. A "choking feeling" and "tight neck throughout the day" sounds bad... which means one should not wait to be re-evaluated.

General health?: If she's generally healthy, she may just have a cold that requires an extra pillow under head till she's better. But if she has a heart condition, the symptom can signify a more serious issue and she should see her doctor for testing and prescription medicines.

What causes delayed burping, pain in the back of neck, difficulty breathing and choking feeling, headache and fast heart beat?

Many possibilities: Honestly, I wish I could ask you more questions to better answer this. I am assuming all these symptoms are happening at the same time and have a seeming relationship with each other? How often does it occur? Is it sudden? If all at once suddenly have to think about an allergic reaction to something or maybe infection like meningitis.Need more info. If this is now and u can't breathe well, seek care now

Anxiety shows itself: In may ways. Once can mentally obsess over things that frighten the person or do behaviors to keep danger away, e.g., ritual behaviors, checking and re-checking. Physically there can be heart palpitations, shortness of breath, sweating, sleeplessness, etc. Please go to a mental health professional for support if you think you have an anxiety disorder.

Choking feeling when I run. Is that just my throat or is it asthma?

Choking feeling when I run. Is that just my throat or is it asthma?

VCD vs. Asthma: Exercise-induced asthma is more common than vocal cord dysfunction but both would have to be considered. Asthma tends to come on during cold/dry weather or may be triggered by allergens such as pollen, grasses or weeds. Vcd may have similar causes. Generally, asthma creates more breathing problems while exhaling, but vcd occurs while inhaling. See your primary care or sports med physican for help.

I have acid reflux and every evening, I get choking feeling in my throat which doesn't go away for few hours. Is there a way to prevent it? Thanks.

GERD to THROAT: To prevent GERD -- eat smaller meals, chew more thoroughly, make posture straighter, get up and walk after eating, sip water during and after eating, eat less meat. AND of course, take acid blocker or acid reducer each evening 30 min before eating, such as omeprazole or Pepcid (famotidine). Both are OTC.

There: There are many things that can cause this sensation. Most of the time it is due to reflux of acid into the throat. You can have symptoms of acid in the throat without the normal esophageal symptoms of indigestion or heartburn. Many times we can't find anything wrong, even after doing an evaluation with scopes. I feel many of these symptoms may be due to muscle tension in the many muscles that control the throat and neck. This tension may cause the pressure sensations. These are exacerbated in those that have an anxious personality. This will not get better with the typical anti-acid remedies.

Had mono 3-4mnths ago, seen dr and ent, they're not worried, had ultrasound on neck, negative, but throat still gets tight choking sensation, thyroid?

Choking after mono: If your tonsils are swollen or touching each other, a taped short course of steroids might help, please ask your doctor, if this problem persisted you may need to go back to ENT for possible nasolaryngosopy if it was not done yet. Good luck.
