"Bulge" at base of throat.
Eight or so years ago noticed when I suck in breath the base of my throat goes WAY in and seems to cut off air.  When I strain out, it bulges like a bull frog!   Went to ENT and had several cat scans.  Dr. said it was extra mass of flesh and he will not take it out because it is too near my enlarged jugular vein.  I still have problems with it.  I feel I have had this since childhood when I had rheumatic fever from strep throat, because all my life I have had trouble breathing if I exert much energy and I tire easily.  It is worse when I go up steps or hills.  If I sleep on my back, my throat "collapses" and wakes me up breathless!  I have NEVER found anyone with this and have asked lots of people!  Please, please help me!  Have you ever heard of this? I am attaching a photo of my neck when I am pushing or straining outward.  Bulge is at bottom between collarbone.
Thank  you!!!
