Since last night I've been feeling like something's stuck in my throat. I also feel squeezing sensation when swallowing. Is it caused by stress?

It could be stress: If you are a healthy 22 year old with no underlying medical conditions, you do not have a fever and this did not happen after swallowing a food particle, then it is possible the feeling you are having is stress related. Symptoms associated with an acute stress reaction or panic attack include tightness in the throat and chest, palpitations, sweating, hyperventilation, loss of sensation. ...Read more

Last few weeks I've had a mild pinprick sensation half way up my neck what is this?

Last few weeks I've had a mild pinprick sensation half way up my neck what is this?

Trapped nerve: I suspect the pinprick sensation is an irritating effect from the trapped nerve you learned of 2 months ago. I assume the trapped nerve was found to be in the neck ("cervical") area. Does the pinprick sensation radiate to an arm or shoulder blade? Has the cause for the trapping been identified? Can this condition disable? Do confirm and follow your treatment plan. Hope that helps. ...Read more

Is it fatal for someone 111 pounds to have 2, 340 mg of caffeine at once? I had this dose 102 hours ago. It feels like someone is squeezing my neck.

Is it fatal for someone 111 pounds to have 2, 340 mg of caffeine at once? I had this dose 102 hours ago. It feels like someone is squeezing my neck.

Go to hospital now: 2, 340mg of caffeine? Over 4 days ago? Clearly it's not fatal (yet) in your case. But the fact that you feel like someone is squeezing your neck means that you need to get seen now, not tomorrow, not monday, but now. Good luck! And don't press your luck again like this. ...Read more

One really small black dot in the back of the neck. Take it off by squeezing, and it dissapear, but then it appears after a month. What could it be?

A blackhead?: Hopefully a dermatologist will also reply, but till then: it might be a blackhead which I believe is not a major problem unless it becomes infected from too much irritation and dirt getting into it. Pores that are larger than normal collect debris and appear darker than others. Gentle cleansing and then an astringent used in moderation may slowly tighten up the pore so it stops collecting dirt. ...Read more

The Pleasure center: In YOUR brain is connected to your neck which in turn is connected to your back and triggers what you've heard people talk about as that "warm fuzzy feeling inside."

Strong emotions can provoke funny feelings of all types. ...Read more

Unusual symptom...: A pediatrician or family doctor can sit down with the 10 year-old and chat, to find out what is meant by a cold sensation. There aren't any cold items inside the body, unless one is drinking cold milk or eating ice cream. So, the doctor will want to know if the sensation is in the skin, which may mean something is irritating the sensory nerves to that area of the skin. ...Read more

When I lay down to sleep. I sometimes feel-hear this fluid type sensation in back neck area. It Lasts about 1-2 seconds. Is this common, or what is?

Neck sensation: It is unlikely that the sensation is from a fluid source. Upon lying down you may be feeling transient motion of neck muscles or ligaments or even motion involving the ear structures. It doesn't appear to be a serious situation because it is so fleeting and evidently there are no other neck or ear symptoms day or night. ...Read more
