That is typical fibro..if I were you I’d take a chewable anti acid like tums and sip lots of warm water. Anything to to with the throat is my most anxiety producing symptom so I feel for you🙏🏻

Yes, I get that tightness. I’ve always thought of it, and articulated it, as a ‘sore throat.’ Like you’d get with a cold or flu.
I never thought of it as related to anxiety. But that makes sense.
I’ve added you to my team. 😀
Gentle hugs

It’s not like being strangled for me it feels weird when I swallow. When to an ENT doc recently and told me to take medrol but I looked up side effects and I’m not taking it cuz I already feel uneasy on my feel / dizzy. I take an ibuprofen/ Advil daily. Unfortunately, it’s not doing anything for it.
Have a blessed day!

Isn’t it amazing just how controlling anxiety is with this disease. I’ll admtits got a big grip on me. And if I don’t start fighting it harder I’ll lose my marriage
