I have throat tightness and my chest down to the stomach, seems to be shrinking in

im eelyn from malaysia. my throat is tight and seems narrowed down after i took sangobion + berodual N inhaler, which was prescribed due to breathing difficulty by a pharmacist.. it has already been 5 hours yet im still feeling the same thing, it didnt go off.. and it is causing me hard to swallow and pain (like something is blocking my throat passage) to others, it seems like im having an adam apple (it has been all the while).. the discomfort is from the top to the bottom of the throat.. tried drinking more water (as im feeling dry in the throat), but nothing seems to get any better,, wht is wrong with me? have been experiencing breathing difficulty for about half a year already, it gets worst only lately, about almost a month ago.. (the breathing prob im experiencing is only when my nose & throat is dry, most of the time somehow there is a sticky feeling of mucus that cannot be expelled out.. however, when i feel moist, i allow the watery fluid to run out from my nose, i did feel relieve of breathing difficulty.. but it gets dry again very quickly.. and only today, im experiencing the tightness & narrowing inside my throat.. few days ago, b4 this happened, my chest down to the stomach, seems to be shrinking in.. (it is not expanding during my inhaling & exhaling) is it related to my stomach? or its an ent prob? and if it is , what r they? what can i do to ease it? thank you :)

Hi Eelyn, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
How old are you? It is a ENT Problem as your Symptoms suggest Tonsillitis or Pharyngitis. You may want to get yourself examined by a ENT Specialist to rule out the exact cause as you will need antibiotics.
Drink plenty of fluids and get adequate rest. Do warm Saltwater gargles several times a day.

Wish you Good Health, Take Care.

Hi Dr Mohammed..
Im 27 this year.. tonsilitis will cause pain like sore throat or even worst, am i right? the pain which im feeling now is like my throat is swollen.. it is all tensed up and narrowed feelings.. ya, guess i will have to see an ENT tomorrow.. i just hate it when i cant breathe well.. and after so long since october 2010, none of the specialists r able to diagnose my problems.. until lately, the symptoms have changed slightly and it turned worst now.. btw, im also from the medical industry.. Im selling medicines.. :)

Hello. I have really big concern that s bothering me. So, the other day when I was at home, I was washing clothes and drying them on the porch since our dryer was broken. After hanging them outside, I went back to my room to read my book and explore on my computer. Half an hour later, I went to check on them to see if their dry, but I didn t put on any shoes or slippers and went out barefooted. When I came back in, I had a tight feeling in my throat to my chest and down in my stomach on the right side. So, I gargled my throat and took some Aleve . Then, on another day, I had a red bump on my arm that was really itchy so I used anti itch cream. Day 2, the bump had a white head in the center and was still itchy so I continued using the cream. Day 3, it was gone and left a dark spot on my arm. I told my mom and we cleaned around my whole room but found nothing. One day later, I started feeling my stomach go numb on the right side and my elbows started swelling and feeling numb also. I got really scared and took Aleve again and gargled in warm water and salt. The next few days, my stomach was numb still, making it to the point that it felt like I didn t even have any feeling in it at all. I tried looking up answers, but didn t know what cause it could be anything! Now, it s almost 2 weeks and I still feel numb in the stomach and elbows as well as my throat, then started getting an ear infection . I really hope its not an ulcer , and I can t afford to go see the local doctor because I don t have insurance anymore since I m a year past 18. Can anyone tell me what this is and what solutions I have?? I m very nervous and worried about my condition.

hello. i have no idea if i have a cold or flu or what. i was looking online but they say a cold you would have a runny nose. i do not but my nose is a little plugged [i can still breathe..and i thinks its been like this before..i dont think its allergies because i am not sneezing] i was coughing (it's getting a little better). i do not have a headache or puffy eyes. i started feeling bad (sore throat- it hurt to talk and swollow) maybe on the 19th or 18th [every so often coughing really bad as well] and i have been taking plenty of Airborne. Today my throat does not hurt when i speak (it doesnt hurt when i swollow..it just feels odd) and i have not been coughing as much (maybe 1/2 or 1/4 of what i was coughing like]. Is this a cold or flu or what? and is it contagious [still? how would i know if it was] ? i do not want to get my family sick and i would like to haang out with a friend this weekend.
