Pain & pressure deep in throat?

Lately Ive been experiancing pain & pressure deep in the throat area. It can range from just a nagging ache to sharp shooting pains. I definantly feel pressure enough that it can be scary at times . Hard to describe actually, to say sore throat is an understatment. Im wondering if this can be from the fusion, other discs or perhaps scar tissue. Its up a bit from my incision. I plan on bringing it up to my PM as Im due for ESIs in Feb but thought I would see in anyone else has experianced anything like this. Ive had some of this on & off since my surgery in dec-2008 but nothing to this degree & it always went away.
If it gets much worse I may not be able to wait till my ESIs. Any opinions would be welcome. Thanks for your time. Sammy

Re: Pain & pressure deep in throat?

Pain and pressure in your throat could be many things go see your doctor! It could be your thyroid swelling, or even a hiatal hernia causing the pressure. Do you get swallowing spasms (dysphagia)?

Re: Pain & pressure deep in throat?

Not really NP, I will at time choke on liquids. like it went down the wrong way.
Strange because its never happens with solids. Hurt all day yestruday & motrin seem to be the only thing that helped it. Its right at the front of my throat/neck. I wondered if it could be related to the fusion as I never felt this till I was fused. Not sure if scar tissue could cause a sensation like this. This has been occuring more & more for the last couple weeks. Im hoping it just goes away but its the absolute strangest thing. Thanks & I pray its better today, yesturday was a nightmare. Forgot to add that this pain is now going into my left collarbone/clavicle area from the throat. I also have the burning returning to my fingers but I know from experiance there could be more then one thing going on. Frustrating not knowing. Sammy
