I was wondering if anybody has had similar symptoms to myself. I am not sure if I am posting this in the correct forum.
I have a very tight feeling in the front of my neck and throat. It does not restrict me from breathing but it does cause an uncomfortable feeling when swallowing sometimes. I also have a very unusual sensation that I feel under my chin. I cant find the words to describe it accurately but it feels like a tingly/electric shock type feeling. I do not get this all the time and it is not painful, just a little uncomfortable. I also have spells of slight dizziness. They are not full blown dizzy spells but sometimes I just think what am I actually doing without it actually stopping me. I am sure I am also suffering some sort of anxiety as I am constantly fighting off that sudden rush of adrenalin feeling. I am not sure if this anxiety is the cause of my symptoms or a result of them. I have always been under rather a lot of pressure at work but stress or anxiety have never really affected me. I am also a very heavy smoker. I have been through so many forums and fact sheets and I can find at least one of my symptoms in nearly every illness I read about. Has anybody else also experienced all of these symptoms?
