is this normal

Postby lucylou » Mon Nov 21, 2011 12:56 am

Hello, this is my first time on here, ive been reading the posts and they have been really helpful, i have been dx with fm for 2yrs, i also have oa and ra, i was wondering if anyone feels as if they have someting in theire throat, like you have to keep swallowing, becuse you can feel something there? I have had this feeling a few times but the last few weeks it has felt worse, i thought it might be because i had a trapeezeotomy (bone removed from my thumb ) and had a bad flare up of fm, is this normal xx

Hi Lucy and first of all :welcome: to forum, I've moved your post into here as it is your first and you are likely to get more hits.

Am I reading your post correctly that your op is a recent thing?? as that may account for your sensations in your throat. I have experienced something similar as have a number of members but we always advise getting any new or worsening symptoms checked out just to be on the safe side

One of my first fibro symptoms was a really frightening feeling in my throat, it felt like i constantly had a golf ball stuck and i got really panicky. I had so many antibiotics but after many months it was found to be the fibro.

It was were my neck front and back was so stiff and tense that it caused this sensation. Together with physio/massage and a mouth guard its kept at bay but i still have trouble swolling and always get the hiccups :shock:

Hi there,

I read somewhere that getting a sore throat is a common symptom of fm. I get one a lot, particularly when my symptoms are bad, and lose my voice completely approximately every six weeks.

However, what you're describing reminds me of two other things: firstly, the anaphylaxis I used to have (which isn't related to fm) when I came in contact with food allergens. This causes what feels like a lump in your throat, and makes you wheeze. Are you allergic to anything? Perhaps it's worth asking your doctor for some common allergy tests? Secondly, I used to get the same sensation during panic attacks. Maybe it's caused by stress, or maybe stress isn't helping.

Just some thoughts! Always best to check it out with your doctor though :)

:welcome: to the forum lucylou :wave: :wave:

Sorry to hear what you're experiencing at the moment :hugs: :hugs:

Until you'd said how long you'd been experiencing the throat sensation, I was thinking it could be due to any tubes/pipes that could have been down your throat due to your op :facepalm: :facepalm:

Cold/flu-type symptoms are quite common with FM, so that could be a possible reason, but then again there could also be other causes :shock: :shock: :shock: The only person able to give you a more definite answer is your GP, so you've done the right thing making an appt to see them :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed:

I am really pleased IYKWIM to hear this, when seeing my rheumy she said that she hasn't heard of other fibromites getting a bad throat and loosing their voice. I loose mine every time I overdo it, so pretty often!

I have been referred to an ENT specialist to find out what is going on......I'll let you know if anything of interest comes of it

The thing with FM, altho we all share a range of symptoms, it affects us all so very differently. So altho the rheumi hasn't heard of someone getting a bad throat and loosing their voice, that doesn't mean it doesn't happen, as it shows on here. It seems that it's one of your particular FM foibles :shock: :shock: :shock:
