Is it normal for my throat to itch when I get mad? My face gets hot and cold and feels like hot needles are poking me from the inside. Normal or not?

Is it normal for my throat to itch when I get mad? My face gets hot and cold and feels like hot needles are poking me from the inside. Normal or not?

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

I have been getting what I can only describe as pins and needles, in my throat. What could this be?

Tingling?: This is a little vague so I will give you choices - if you mean you feel tingling, almost like electricity or maybe burning, along the inner surface, and it has happened more than 2 or 3 times, see a neurologist! If it is more like an itching, pay attention to when it happens, it is probably allergy, stop doing (eating most likely) whatever causes it, and see an allergist. Best I can do. ...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

I just yawned and my jaw/throat area got a cramp. It hurt really bad for about 10 seconds and felt like someone was sticking a needle in my jaw-throat area! Why did this happen?

It is a muscle spasm: When you yawn the jaw muscles can get out of sync and the main opening muscle of the jaw called the lateral pterygoid muscle can get a spasm. It is nothing to worry about.
Be careful when you yawn. It is like a charley horse. ...Read more

When your at the dentist and they give you anaesthesia if some drips out of the needle and you swallow it will your throat go numb?

When your at the dentist and they give you anaesthesia if some drips out of the needle and you swallow it will your throat go numb?

Mostly a bad taste: Local anesthesia most likely will leave a very bad taste in your mouth, if a few drops are released in your oral cavity. Other than the bad taste, there will be no permanent harm. Any residual numbness you might feel in the back of your throat is probably a result of topical anesthesia placed at the injection site. That may leave a temporary numbness in your throat, but again it harmless. ...Read more
