Feeling of throat constriction makes it difficult to breathe
For several years now, off and on, I've had a feeling as if my throat is constricted, making it difficult to breathe. Sometimes I get a little dizzy and it is difficult to function during the day. When this happens, it feels like I can never get a deep enough breath. I can feel something in the back of my throat- almost like a lump or something, but I don't know what it is. I thought it might be mucus, but I never hack up any mucus.
I have seen various doctors in the past for this. Every test came up negative. One doctor did suggest that I might have acid reflux issues, and prescribed Protonix. I've been on Protonix for some time, along with dietary changes, but the issue has not gone away, and has suddenly gotten much worse for no apparent reason.
