Re: Help- horrible throat tightness
There's all kinds of things it could be. Some things that come to mind: vocal cord dysfunction (often found in people who have asthma; often confused for asthma); goiter (enlarged thyroid due to hyothyroid); allergic reaction; GERD (a common symptom of reflux is the feeling something catching in the throat, or of tightness). Reflux is pretty common in people with asthma.
I have throat tightness much of the time. Mine is usually not that bothersome. Mine is some combination of gerd and probably a bit of VCD.
