Hi welcome to HealthcareMagic

The spasm like sensation in the throat , is not due to muscle contraction, during the sore throat, URTI there will congestion and edema of the mucosa of pharynx... hence when we swallow saliva or food , we experience cramp like sense,, hope i have answered your question..

Take care..
