Throat Muscle Strain

    
Asked by cogswca2 (Female; 25; Allergies/Asthma ) on Sun 12, Jul 2009 05:26pm

I'm a 25 year old woman, very active, and over the past 3 weeks or so, I've had pain in my throat/neck that I'm trying to figure out if muscle related. The pain starts at the base of my throat/neck (in the concave region just higher than my collar bone) and continues up the middle of my throat, all the way to my jaw just below my bottom teeth. The pain is worst at the end of my breath (when I've completely exhaled) and also worsens when I lay on my back. I don't have any other symptoms (such as a sore throat, allergies, etc) but the pain makes me feel the urge to cough. The pain doesn't seem to be relieved all that much by ibuprofen. However, I'm wondering if this sounds muscular related (such as a strain injury from exercising somehow) or signs of something more serious. Thanks!

Hi, Your condition seems to be muscle related; however, other conditions which may give rise to similar symptoms are globus pharyngis (i.e. mucosal lesions in the throat, tumor, granulomatous lesions, etc.). It is unlikely that your symptoms are related to sore throat, thyroid, or laryngeal problems. I would suggest you to consult an ENT specialist for further evaluation and reach proper diagnosis. Thanks and regards.

If you feel like strained throat muscles then drink more water, use a nasal rinse, suck on zinc lozenges, run a vaporizer while you sleep, and see your doctor.

Include plenty of whole grains, fruits, and vegetables in your diet. These foods contain vitamins A, E, and C. They also help keep the mucus membranes that line the throat healthy.
