strange throat pains... some advice pls?

So. it started maybe a year ago i would randomly, and not very often, get a strange burning sensation that would come from my uper chest to the tip of my chin. it felt like a vain was running electric hot water. it would only last a few seconds. i didn't think much of it because it didn't happen alot. once every few months maybe. it was very random.

then i noticed when i would try to speak above a certain stress point my throat would shift and cut me off from talking altogether. that lasted maybe a month then stoped. this was consitant with the electric like pain which started to happen more offten.

all that stuff stoped happening and now i few this strange burning sensation on the left side of my throat the same spot as the other symptoms. but it seems lk every other day (if im lucky) i wake up with this pain. and it fades through out the day.

iv been reading up on over the last couple of days. on other forums i seen post from ppl with the same or very similar symptoms. suggested to them that it was acid reflux or some kind of fungle infection.

acid reflux seems slightly possible i do have very minor heartburn.

but the fungle infection i couldn't find any real info on it except toenail based and sinus based. neither seemed to discribe anything useful or realated to my issue.

also on the other forums they tried to follow through with some suggested treatment for more than 5 weeks with. no improvement.

in the back of my head the whole time i still think cancer. but dont know.

im unisured and really confused.

other minor symptons are headaches dizzyness. slight cough but i kinda do that to clear my throat its very controlled. i am an x smoker of 4 years i quit about 2 years ago. constant taste of blood, but that could be dental cuz i have trouble keeping up with brushing my teeth and when i do for a few days that problem goes away.

iv had chest pains in very specific areas that repeat. but not much of an isssue it could be realted but idk thats why im here.

those forums i read were from 2006 and they just stoped with no real results.

one more thing

i check my throat almost constantly and i never notice any swelling or lumps.

You might want to rule out thyroid. check out Mary Shomand checklist at her website.
Good Luck

Thumbs up Re: strange throat pains... some advice pls?

Hello there! I don't want to scare you but have you had a cardiac eval?
I was having chest pain real high in my chest upon exertion. Also some jaw & ear pain. They did an EKG then said "well it isn't your heart" Then suggest I see a gastro specialist. He treated me for GERD even though I tried to tell him I'd had GERD for years & this was different. I was persistant tho I kept going back and complaining of the daily pain that was getting worse. Finally, they did a sonogram & the test with dye where they trace the arteries in your heart on a screen. Long story short, I had a 95% blockage in the main artery in my heart! The left ventricle. Women in particular present different symptoms than men for heart problems. mouth, ears, throat, jaws.
Just to rule it out, if you don't find an answer soon, please have your arteries checked. Especially if you are over forty or fifty. Good Luck to you, I hope its something simple.
