Choking Feeling In Throat Thyroid
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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

The only situations I have heard of anyone choking from mucous is in an elderly person that lived alone and was not able to clear their airway by coughing, however this is very rare.

Drinking water will help thin the mucous secretions along with a daily anti-histamine. I suggest you go back to your doctor for alternative treatment options.
Best of luck. ...Read more
