I have throat discomfort, something like crawling. Is it related to Anxiety symptom?

It feels like something is crawling up my throat , and I try to swallow so it can go away but it keeps coming back. I drink water, but still the same. I do not know what it is,and its been bothering me. What could this be? I am 24 years old, Female. Weight 193 lbs. Height 5 0. No medical history . I currently suffer of anxiety attacks. I get the racing heart, the tight chest feeling, sometimes my mouth would get dry, I often feel weak, and emotional. My anxiety attacks started this month, so I am new to the symptoms and it scares me a lot. I get scared that I would stop breathing completely. So far, the breathing is connected with this crawling sensation up my throat, it feels like it crawls to the roof of my mouth, and until I swallow it comes back again. I would like to know what this is, to ease my worrying. Second Question: Does my high blood pressure effect the heart race when I get into anxiety attacks?

Hi Cynthia,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum
The throat discomfort can be as a result of dryness of the throat due to your anxiety. I would advice you to drink plenty of normal or warm water to reduce the symptoms. There can be alteration in the heart rate when the blood pressure varies during anxiety episodes. At present there does not seem to be any throat problem with you. Your anxiety can actually make you feel all these things. Relax and enjoy the life.
