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.

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.

Hi, Our 9 year old granddaughter has had 5 ER visits and was flown to Anchorage. She is now home but… This started about a month ago, their whole family had a doctor’s visit all having strep throat. The morning of the visit she started having a small whistle noise when breathing although she showed no distress of not getting enough air. But by the time she reached the doctor’s office it was getting worse. The doctors did a quick check and said she needed to go to the ER. At the hospital she was in full Stridor, they gave a breathing treatment and took x-rays. The x-ray showed an hour glass shape of her airway with swelling around the airway. Epiglottis looked fine they said. She spent the night in the hospital given antibiotics, doc said tonsillitis . Within the next 7 days she had a total of 4 ER visits and 3 nights in the hospital. Steroids and breathing treatments did seem to help. She was treated for croup. Day 8 she had a follow up doc appointment aDoes nd at that she had a full blown attack. Very bad Stridor, could not get enough air but always o2 was at 100%. She was sent to anchorage there they ran tests checked her throat and said it was vocal cord dysfunction, although the test was not done during an attack.. We have been trying to learn how to breathing differently. But now the attacks are different, they are more like charley horse cramping in the throat, spasms that last about a minute quit a minute and go on for an hour to an hour and a half. Very painful for her. Also we have to watch that her does not panic and hyperventilate. From our reach it feels like there is more than one thing going on, Does this charley horse spasms sound like it is vocal cord dysfunction?

I was given amoxycillin for a chest infection and did not improve after 48 hours, therefore I went back to the GP who then gave me Clarythmomycin as it resulted in pneumonia. I have been off work for 3 weeks now and feel completely washed out and exhausted. I had a chest x-ray which was clear, but was given an inhaler temporarily as I was out of breath and wheezy. I still have an incredible amount of phlegm which has now changed from brown to sometimes green to clear. Unfortunately, for last 3 days, my trachea is extremely bruised to touch and feel as if someone is pressing my windpipe. Although my tonsils aren t swollen, my ear hurts deep inside. I have had to start taking paracetamol again this week as feel weak, wobbly and feel as if I am going backwards again instead of improving. I am 45 years old. Non-smoker.This is the 3rd time I have had pneumonia in 18 years. I am reasonably fit and healthy, and I don t suffer from colds normally, but whenever I come down with something, I seem to suffer with it. How long does it take to get back to normal? Are the trachea symptoms part of the initial pneumonia symptoms or would I need to see the GP again. I am feeling extremely fed up of generally feeling unwell. I am taking a tonic (Metatone) and drinking and eating healthily. Basically, is it normal to feel this unwell for so long.

two months ago I began with an upper respiratory infection. I temporarily lost my voice, but this resolved quickly. I then began having palpitations, anterior neck pain, headaches, fatigue. I took a full course of Augmentin, but once stopped, all symptoms continued again. Now I have palpitation that are intense, and wake me out of a sound sleep. My heart thumps all night, and I can tell it skips beats. My anterior neck will have an odd pain, and my left lymph node is swollen again. My sinuses are chronically infected it seems as well. The headache throbs, and the pain is moderate.
