Since the beginning of July I have had several symptoms. It started by pain in neck and heaviness of chest. Went to hospital ran all the tests and even did a stress test in addition to chest xray, soft tissue of the neck, and even thought it was salivary gland. Everything normal. Well the symptoms are: choking feeling just under jaw line, some pain will radiat into left ear and left temple, and at times it will get so bad that my chest will feel like a chest cold (congested type feeling). I do have cervical spondylosis and are sending me back to the neurologist. Been to an ENT and he never did a scope down my throat to check for anything there. Three different Dr. wrote it off to acid reflux, but medicine didn't seem to help. I can rub the area that is in pain and it doesn't make it worse, it actually feels a little better for a short time. The choking feeling I get, gets to where I know I get tense and then the muscles start hurting through the sides of the neck and top of shoulders. I feel like I should be tested my thoroughly for blocked artiers, maybe scope down throat just to see, and an MRI of my neck and back again to see if things have progressed. I was told that my neck arthritis wouldn't have anything to do with this. So then what does. Oh, and the last 10 days my left eye twitches almost contantly. Please Help
