Anger: It seems you're describing a unique experience that happens to you, when you get "mad." here, your whole being responds to emotional distress. It is uncomfortable, but not health or life-threatening. It's also typical of someone being in touch with her body, and listening to it. A therapist might help you with relaxation processes. A classical homeopath may also help you with an exact remedy. ...Read more

Can you talk?: If you can talk and breathe in and out without making a weezing noise then you CAN breathe. If you can't do the above call 911!. GERd can make you feel like you have something stuck in your throat. But rarely does it cause the inability to breathe! ...Read more

My throat hurts and when I swallow, it feels as if I am swallowing a needle.

Sore throat : It sounds like you have pharyngitis or a 'sore throat'. If you've just had a medical procedure done, it's important to check in with the doctor/team that did that. They may have a very good idea as to 'why' you have those symptoms now. If the pain is really that bad, probably you need a professional to look into the back of your throat. You wouldn't want to ignore Strep throat, Mono etc. ...Read more
