Obstruction in Throat??

I have recently had a bronchoscopy done because of a failed pulmonary function test.  The test showed an obstruction. My pulmonologist found a calcified lymph node sitting on my trachea where it branches into my lungs. However, after the bronchoscopy, he said that it was only blocking about 10% and did not need to come out. He is sending me to an ENT doctor to look for further obstruction in the throat/nose area.  My question is where could an obstruction be and how will they look for it?? Also, what are some other symptoms, other than shortness of breath, could an obstruction cause? I have been having heart palpitations and occassional rapid heart beat for a while now. All EKG's and my echocardiogram have came back normal, also have had some chest pain. So, I was wondering if symptoms such as these could be caused from an obstruction.
