I often get a strong feeling of tightness in the throat after a long day. It's unpleasant and makes it difficult to breathe deeply.

Is there a particular cause for this, or is it just stress and fatigue? Can I somehow minimise it?

Could be anything from anxiety to allergies, to be honest. Does this happen more in the summer?

No, I'd say it's year-round. I suppose it is harder to feel calm when stressed, so it could possibly be anxiety related.

Are you sure it's not fruit related? I have a mild allergy to uncooked apples / peaches / nectarines which gives me a sort of weird twinge in the throat.

Sounds a lot like asthma to me, OP.

Lifelong asthmatic (diagnosed at nine) and self-inflicted (in late 20s/early 30s) leisure injury inflicted generalized anxiety / panic disorder sufferer here.

Telling the difference between an asthma attack and generalized anxiety is difficult at the best of times; nevermind differentiating between a full blow panic attack and a cardiac event.

One thing I've learned is that if I get up and go for a short walk and do something utterly distracting like phone my totally batty mum who'll fill be ear with who did what with her dustbins like it's a some bin men version of game of thrones makes the symptoms go away then it's likely just anxiety. If that doesn't help it's asthma. This was all stuff I learned while doing CBT to be able to differentiate between "I'm having a panic attack / I'm dying panic more".

Now that I'm fully diagnosed and all I just take a puff on my inhaler, pop a 0.25mg clonazepam wafer under my tongue and play a mobile game until whatever goes away (usually pretty quickly).

Anyway I hope that helps some, despite being a git garbled (I'm currently in the grips of some fever other in the 100-102oF range. I think I'm going to eat some paracetamol and go back to bed. Fuck this.)

Are you sure is not gastric reflux? I had it, and it was a real bitch. Cut down on greasy takeaways and get some Gaviscon

Certain. It's never been a problem for me. I eat clean and my digestion is pretty good -- I've only had heartburn a handful of times in my life.


I try to eat at least one piece of fruit (generally an apple) per day. Thinking back to when I didn't (low carb etc.), I still had similar symptoms -- no noticeable difference. I don't have any allergies I know of.


This is a good shout. My siblings were diagnosed with asthma as kids, and while I did experience some throat/chest tightness, for whatever reason I coped and was never given an inhaler. They also had allergies, where I didn't seem to get the symptoms -- maybe I adapted to dog fur, pollen, whatever.

One thing I did get, though, were persistent throat infections throughout my childhood. It's sometimes hard to tell whether they're inflamed or not, but it's certainly easy to imagine there's a kind of persistent immune reaction going on around my tonsils. As an aside, the infections were something of a blessing as I became obsessed with oral hygiene since. I gargle mouthwash and water once per day. I could experiment with using saltwater or plain water rather than mouthwash... Or I could buy a waterpick and give my tonsils a blast each day.

The most noticeable factor is definitely fatigue and tension. The feeling simply isn't there when I'm well rested. I'm thinking this may a stress and general inflammation type thing -- I think I'll try introducing regular breathing exercises and try to get more kip.

If any of you are still interested in my weird health problems, I'll post an update after a month or two.
