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?

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. Next time, think back about what *immediately precedes* this sensation (whether an external event or internal thoughts and feelings) and see if you notice a connection. Try *psychotherapy* (talk therapy aimed at understanding and insight), not just behavior therapy. ...Read more

Headache on right side, pain in the right ear, and a lump in throat with a terrible sore throat?

Sometimes it is a strep throat bacterial infection (antibiotics would be needed to treat strep). Other possibilities include a tonsillar abscess, a viral infection, a throat ulcer, etc... The doctor has to look at the ear and the throat to figure out what is going on. ...Read more

I'm 21 I was a heavy smoking, stopped smoking 3 days ago, using a vaporiser, but I'm short on breath and have a sore throat, ear ache, lump in throat.

Take Your Lumps Now: Well, what'd you expect-a new car and a hot date? No matter what physical ailment you have, smoking will not make it any better. So if you have a mild virus or a cold or cough-- you smoke, you suffer more. Three days of inhalational abstinence is not enough, especially if you were a heavy smoker. So for now, just try and not smoke and see how it goes. Later, try to cut down to at least 1/2 pack a day ...Read more

Being a singer, you're already protecting yourself from most forms of throat cancer by not smoking. Best wishes. ...Read more
