hi
last night i woke up with like a lump in my throat where adams apple is, i can swallow ok and dont have a sore throat so i wonder what this is?a couple of days before i was taking peppermint oil in a tablet for ibs and for bloating i bought this from boots.
its just feels like a lump stuck in my throat and i cant get rid of it.
i brought up some flem today but it was clear.
i dont have any neck problems right now and i dont have swollen glands
anybody know why this has happend? and what can i do for it? do i need to see my doctor?
i keedp thinking my throat is going to close up and this is making me feel worse.
thank you
jan

It might just be a muscle spasm which is taking a while to go.. I would go and see your gp about it though ((xx))

You best to see your GP about it if it does not clear, it`s always best to get new symptoms checked, as it might not be connected to fibro.

Hope you feel better soon. :hugs:

Hi

This was one of my firat ever FM symptoms...The lump in the throat feeling.

I was up & down the doctors, i gargled painkillers had 4 different sorts of antibiotics :yikes: and it was still there :dunno:

Everytime i ate it got worse and when i layed down for bed.

It was very frightening.

It worked out to be the the throat muscles tensing. I was very stiff around the neck/jaw & shoulders tightening the throat muscles.

I started having regular physio & i wear a mouthguard at night and iv never had it since.

i have had problems with an infection in my saliva glands but that was over a month before this and when i went back to the dentist he said the infection had gone that was a few weeks ago.
iam seeing the physio next week so will tell her.why do you where a mouthguard what does it do?.iam not stiff around the neck or jaw but awhile ago my jaw did hurt but not with the lump thing.
the other thing if anyone can help with is my bowels i never had problems before but since i have the FM i have got irritable bowel syndrome my bowels only work if i take fibrogel i eat veg and fruit but i get bloating every day my stomache is just massive and i have loads of wind from getting up till going to bed i get pains in my belly that come and go.i bought peppermint oil from boots and would like to know if thats ok to take or would i be better off with something else any advice would be welcome.i have put on weight and i know this doesnt help so iam trying to loose it but nothing so far but i will keep on trying.

:wave:

The mouthguard relaxes the muscles around the jaw and stops any clenching/grinding.

It helps with FM & TMJ symptoms like facial & neck pain.

IBS is a very commen assosiated condition as the nerves round the gut are effected and tenses the stomach muscles...

I was told by my GP a drug called citelopram (anti-d) can help as it relaxes the stomach easing IBS symptoms
