What causes a momentary sensation of tightness from the collarbone up the neck up to ears followed by sensation of lump in throat? PCP says heart ok?

Look inward: It could be any number of things, but if there are no abnormal medical findings and I were a gambling man, I'd bet on anxiety.

Try *psychotherapy* (talk therapy aimed at understanding and insight), not just behavior therapy. ...Read more

Seen Heart, lung, ent, hemat/asthma doc bunch tests only thing found was + meth challenge airway disease. On advair and Prtnx for reflux. 7mths Still have lump feeling in throat and don't get pounding heart feeling beat gos faster. Diff breathin pattern?

See GI doc: I suspect that your reflux is likely the cause for your throat sensation and Prtnx may not be enough to control it. The fast heart beat is likely from the long acting bronchodilator in Advair. With just mild asthma (detected by methacholine challenge only), it is debatable whether you need to take Advair. Consider stopping it. Consider getting checked for vocal cord dysfunction as well. ...Read more
