Re: Tightness in throat - HELP!
You may want to get a thyroid antibodies test. Though I didn't get the problem only when I ate. I got the tightness in my throat, it felt like I was holding back tears at times, and my throat was cramping. There was a pressure and the pain would go up into my jaw. And I thought I might have had an ear ache it was so bad. I called my GP and he ran the antibodies test since I was 2 years being treated for Hypothyroid. I had a high amount of thyroid antibodies and was sent to an endocronologist where I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's. That may not be your problem, and some Doctor's don't believe Hashimoto's is painful. I've had 4 attacks (in the past year) since my diagnosis, and I know Hashimoto's is painful.
I wish you luck, I would definately call your Doctor and tell him your symptoms and ask for tests.
