This is Dr. David
I am sorry you are having such bad post nasal drip.
your throat should not be tightening up for 2 hours.
you need to see an ENT specialist to look into your nose and sinuses and back of your throat.
post nasal drip is treated with strong allergy medications and steroid nasal sprays to decrease sinus allergy symptoms.
you should be avoiding alcohol for now until you see an ENT doctor who can look down your throat to see why your throat is closing up so much.
you could be having spasms of your throat muscles causing this.
alcohol can worsen this in some patients.
are you still having a runny nose?
Hi sorry no never had runny nose had really sore throat doctor told me I was just panicking over throat as I previousley had panick attacks I think it could be high histamine
severe panic attacks can cause your throat to close up
what you need is better treatments for your anxiety symptoms.
are you on medications to help decrease your anxiety?
you should be seeing a therapist regularly as well for your anxiety.
No ive noticed since my throat went tight my anxiety is bad again ive not had panick attacks for 5 years I feel light headed tho
Do you think its anything to do with high histamine
no, I think the throat closing up is due to excessive anxiety symptoms and panic attacks.
it doesn't have to do with high histamines.
you can take antihistamine medications like for allergies, but this will not help your anxiety or panic attacks or your throat symptoms.
you have to talk to your doctor about going back on anxiety medications
like an SSRI agent like lexapro or zoloft or paxil
and long acting benzos like valium or klonopin to help decrease your anxiety.
Yeah it feels like ive swallowed a golf ball and after I take ibuprofen and relax it goes away will it be anything to do with cider
I was never on medication I read books that really helped sir
it is not due to cider.
it is due to excessive anxiety or a panic attack which causes you to feel like your throat is closing up.
it is due to excessive adrenaline and anxiety hormones which are going through your body.
from excessive anxiety.
these episodes will continue to happen until you get some treatment and therapy for your anxiety
