Throat problems

Postby Stu » Sun Jan 12, 2014 11:31 pm

I have had fibromyalgia for about 3 years, and I have had a problem with my throat. It seems like there is always something in my throat and that I need to keep clearing it. Sometimes it seems like that my throat is twice the size it should be ( I know that it is just the normal size ) and it is driving me insane. Can anyone give advise and has anyone else had the same problem.?

Yea I have the same problem (on and off) when I first got it I asked the dentist if he could see anything as felt something was stuck and I couldn't swallow it..ive got It right now, it comes and goes and I read somewhere that its one of crazy side effects of fibro so now don't worry too much about it as annoying as it is..

Stu, if you have not seen a Dr about this then please get it checked.

There are other conditions that have this symptom.

Do not assume everything is fibro. I have done before only to find out that it was something quite different.

One of my first symtoms was severe neck pain and stiffness but also this feeling of being choked all the time like i had something stuck down my throat. I had to lay in certain postions to sleep as felt like my throat was closing up.

Before diagnoses this was and the GP got me to take around 3/4 lots of antibiotics thinking it may be an infection.

Anyways this was going on for months and months which triggered off severe anxiety and panic.

Was only when i see a physio who started to release the tension/stiffness around my neck and front of my neck that it all started to ease.

Now cut to today... i was diagnosed with TMJ also and wear a mouthguard. This mouthgaurd added to physio helps keep it at bay.

I would say like myself its possible muscle tension around the throat/neck and to also see the dentist as well as GP and mention TMJ as its a very common associated condition

Hi guys. The one thing I am still not sure of with fibromyalgia is what to eat and what to avoid, as anyone got any suggestions :idea:

I really don't think that there are foods to avoid or embrace. We may have other conditions that can cause us to eat differently. This should not be confused with having fibro. If you find food bothers you, talk to your Dr. It is likely something other than fibro.

I have heard in the past that people with fibromyalgia are unable to work. What does everyone think of this. Regards. Stu
