I am so sorry this happened to you! I would go to the Er and have this checked out, it could be just from the strain on your neck being sore or you could have some damage that needs to be attended to. Did you report this to the police and have you been checked out by a medical professional? I would really advise you do as you could have some damage and need to be seen.
I hope your feeling better very soon and know we are all here for you:)
How very terrible. I am so sorry you had to expereince this terrifying incident. It sounds like you have some brusing that has caused swelling in the aera you were "chocked." I have to agree with everyone else, please seek medical attention. Best Regards, Tuck
I was also thinking of the ...... for the life of me I can't think of the name of it but it is referred to as the box and its not the voice but it allows you to breath and swallow and if it is crushed or damaged it is very serious! I wish I could think of the name of it , starts with an H I believe. At any rate please get checked out very soon!
I just want to thank everyone for your concern and immediate responses. I have just been trying to rest this injury out, but I will see a doctor tomorrow. I also put ice around my neck and kept drinking plenty of cold water. It seemed to help a little bit. Whatever the result may be I just want to wish everyone a blessed and safe day.
Sandee, Are you thinking of the pharynx( channel for both food & oxygen) which is the medical term for the throat? The larynex( voice box) and the trachea(windpipe) are all part of that structure. Any or all of those could have been injured during this attack.
And mrleo 101 your epiglottis could also have been injured. It is important is see your Doc soon. If you have any problems breathing or increased difficultly swallowing do not hesitate to seek immediate medical attention. Please take care and keep in touch. I hope you are feeling better soon. Tuck
Thank you so much for the update. I am very glad you are feeling better. So often someone will post and we never hear from them again. I for one actually "worry & wonder" how that person is doing. So I appreciate your latest post. Take care and if you have other or additional questions, need a little support or just an "ear" there are many forums here to help. Tuck
Hi I was just wondering what the outcome of ur injury was... I was just recenly choke last night by someone pulling and yanking me from the hood of my sweater. It was very short tho...i wasnt able to breath for about 10 seconds... But it did cause red marks... And now my neck is quite sore. Im swollowing and drinking fine and breathing fine... Did u ever go to the doctor and if so what did they tell you?
Rthomas826, the original poster has not posted anything since 2008, so I think that it is unlikely that you will get a response.
Can you start a new thread? You're more likely to get responses if you do.
I'm so sorry that you were attacked! Have you notified the police? Have you seen your doctor? I think that you should definitely call your doctor to make an appointment if you're able, or go to the emergency room. Please keep us updated.
