    Dysphagia - worried about my sysmptoms

    Hi all, i am worried about Dysphagia. i experienced trouble swallowing recently and i feel tightness when i sleep and drink anything. really hoping this is just related to anxiety and not something serious. has anyone here ever experienced this??

    Yes - after being admitted to hospital months ago for something quote scary my anxiety went through the roof. One of the first anxiety symptoms I had for a month was exaclty what you are describing. I kept checking in the mirror with my mouth open to check it wasn't closing up lol. Its very commonwith anxiety as far as I'm aware.

    I have not been to a doctor yet and I hope this isn't anything serious. It comes and goes as far as the severity of it and i'm sure its partly related to my bad anxiety :(

    THank you for your replies guys, it does help a lot.

    It took me ages to learn how to relax when I got these feeling in my throat it's really frightening when it happens but over time you get sort of use to it.Difficulty swallowing is frightening and it can obviously be dangerous.When you are getting up suddenly the blood supply shall be varied for a while due to the effect of gravity.That can cause such disturbance.
