Thanks for your query.
Noted your history of feeling of tightness of throat since 1 week - increases as the day passes 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:
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.
