    ear throat nose specialist for neck pains

    ok well, i have been dealing with a odd sort of neck pain, on either side of my throat, which has been persistant for about 2 years now. it's a sort of itchyness in the meat itself, sorta like burrs (the field thing that gets stuck on your clothes and is prickly) in the meat. I have had it X-rayed, and ultra sounded. the docotor said it was enlarged lymph nodes. now i also have an odd sort of click/thump sensation when i swallow at times. now the pain is progressing behind my collar bone, where its sometimes hard to do my job. I went to 4 doctors 3 of which didn't really reasure me with their diagnosis and finally the 4th one is sending me to a ear throat and nose specialist. I have been a smoker since the age of 19 not like super heavy but about 1/2 a pack a day. that is something im not proud of but what is done is done.

    list of symptoms related/unrelated (unsure)

    -irrated burr sensation along esophagus
    -chest pains
    -pain along collar bone
    - a click/thump sensation when swallowing
    -at times almost feels like a fish bone is stuck in there
    -sinus drainage enough to cause me to gag/wretch
    -fatigue(might be work related shift work days/nights/afternoons weekly shift change)
    -enlarged lymph nodes

    now the doctors said that nothing had shown up on the X ray but i dont know how well the soft tissues show up around the throat, and the lymp nodes were only realized after ultra sound. I'm a born worrier and my specialists appointment is still 3 weeks away. any imput on this would be appreciated.

    P.S. now im not a 100% on when the symptoms came to be but about 2 years ago my girlfriend moved in with a old dander laiden cat, and i was allergic, this is the only real thing thats keeping me from completely freaking out about this.... just a side note.
