How relevant is nasal obstruction to sleep-related breathing disorders? Most doctors seem solely focused on the pharynx.
UARS: Very relevant! upper airway resistance syndrome can be a large factor involved with sleep related breathing disorders. Please consider seeing dentists who are trained in dental sleep medicine while there is no current speicalty in this area currently, seek those who are diplomate status in the american academy of dental sleep medicine (aadsm). Also those who use acoustical rhinometry! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I suffer from anxiety disorder and today I feel like I have something stuck in my throat on left side. I'm panicking really bad about epoglottitis?
When I eat food my throat tightens badly, seemingly from being twisted by a motility disorder. I also get chain spasms and chest pain. No acid reflux.
Could GERD cause a tightening sensation in the back of your throat followed by brief racing heart? I have GERD & Anxiety Disorder. Thanks

I'm scared bc it feels like I have a burp in my throat and I have a slight headache. I already have panic and anxiety disorder so I worry.
Probably nothing new: One of the problems w/ health anxiety is that even if it is quieted one day - the sun comes up tomorrow and there it is again!

It teaches you to avoid, reduce and manage anxiety and will help thru life if you work hard and learn. Worry does nothing good! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My throat begins to hurt/ often swells a bit if i talk for longer periods ie 45 , min , is it an indication of some ENT disorder/disease ?
May be a voice issue: Some people don't use ideal technique when speaking. They tend to power their voices by squeezing their throat muscles instead of using their diaphragm and good breathing technique. My guess is that you don't use proper technique and that is why after 45 minutes your throat bothers you. I recommend seeing an ENT who specializes in the voice for an evaluation and then perhaps a speech therapist. ...Read more
