Neck fullness: Fullness and pressure in the neck/ throat can be from an external factor an enlarged lymph node or cyst pushing on a neck structure, or from thickened secretions accumulating at the level of the adam's apple/voice box.

Frm lst 3 mnths a strange click in the throat wen adams apple moves up down.3 ENT says nthng in throat. Was an ex smoker so worried?

Normal Exam Finding: This sensation is felt more than heard. It is a normal finding. I just did it on myself and my husband. If it doesn't make a click, it is a negative sign requiring more investigation. It is not a pleasant feeling however to grab one's Adam's Apple (Laryngeal Cartilage) and move it up and down or from side to side. Since yours is normal, I advise to you discontinue this procedure. Be well. ...Read more

A click in throat when I swallow salaiva. When my adams apple moves up & down a click happens. Went to 3 ENT but says nothing wrong. What it is & remedie?

Nothing wrong: This may be what is called a "globus" sensation or could be related to your stated history of acid reflux. The globus sensation is generally associated with anxiety. And the more you worry about it, the more noticeable the sensation. This does not mean it's your fault or that it's all in your head. It speaks to the powerful relationship between mind and body. There are many ways to work with this. ...Read more

Hello, I've had a swollen feeling in my throat down below my adams apple but actually in my throat, I have to clear my throat way more than normal, i?

Throat clearing.: General possibilities include allergic rhinitis (with post-nasal drip) and gastroesophageal reflux disease (heartburn). Could also be something specifically pharyngeal. Regardless, the cause should be elucidated. An ENT doc could help us figure this out quite nicely. ...Read more

Not related: You have a lot going on and I can only comment in general. Discomfort below the "adams apple" is not likely to be from the spine. The thyroid itself can hurt off and on with thyroiditis. There are specific blood tests for that. There are muscles and nerves in the neck that can be injured, stretched or irritated. No test will show that. Stick with your docs, avoid over examining and irritating it. ...Read more

It feels like a bone in my throat is hurting its around the Adams apple area what coulf it be.

Bone?: It is possible, particularly if you have been eating meat, to have a small bone stuck in the back of your throat. If it feels as though something is lodged there, I would seek out medical attention in the emergency room immediately. This area can be visualized if necessary, by direct vision, endoscopy, or x-ray. Good luck. ...Read more
