29 year old female with the feeling of throat tightness

Doctor :   Hi. Thanks for your query. Noted your history of feeling of tightness of throat since 1 week - increases as the day p asses by and becomes tighter and tighter. You are an asthmatic under treatment. The most probable cause would be as follows: The muscles that form the pharynx and the neck get fatigued over as the time passes and hence that feeling and hence the tightness. I would advise you the following: Voice rest. small frequent sips of warm water to keep the throat muscles relaxed. The anti-inflammatory medications that are safe in asthma like oral steroids or serratiopeptidase and antibiotics if needed on examination by your Doctor, preferably and ENT Surgeon should solve your problem. I hope this answers your query.
