Re: breathing

I'm looking forward to someone answering this.

Now that this has been brought up, I have experienced this, too.

I have difficulty breathing when my mucles in my upper back and neck/chest area are in so much spasm, it feels like I've got a necktie on and someone is constricting my chest. Also, I get esophageal spasms when it's really bad, causing the tight necktie feeling, and swallowing/ breathing problems. It's lovely, let me tell you.

Re: breathing

I have that feeling too - feels like a noose around my neck and makes it hard to swallow as well. I can actually see one ligament under my chin on my neck get pulled taut when I open and close or turn my head too.
