Okay I'm 16 and I suddenly get this pain inside my throat which causes me to gag as it feels like something was crawling up it and causing serious pain on its way. I realise I can breath easy and gagging is not necassary.

7 minutes later the pain is consistant and I am walking when suddenly I am in front of my legs! They weren't moving as I told them! In fact they had stopped all together!
Before falling my legs suddenly spasm out of their position and I regain movement this lasted 3 minutes

Not long after my throat pains vanishes.

This morning I also awoke my face covered in either tears or saliva.
That has never happened before.

Later today I have also suffered pain on the side of my neck and not the throat - it isn't moving pain but when I am still it becomes uncomfortable before becoming painful.

  • I think you need to get to a doctor to have a CT scan of the brian and possibly an MRI of your neck. You might as well get the MRI of your brain also. Your symptoms are scary to me for a tumor. Do you have any other strange things like smelling things not there or tasting things not in your mouth?

  • I notice you say you are 16 years old? Or you were 16 when things started? If so, do your parents know of these symptoms? I have a son around your age and I would just die of hearbreak if he didn't tell me.:( I still think you need evaluated. I hope you are not driving with these symptoms.
