I've been having this problem for maybe a


Q: Hello,
I've been having this problem for maybe a year now, I wouldn't say its a pain but its definitely a constant pressure. I would say its around my esophagus region of the neck. Sometimes it feels like a hands is just pressed down on my neck. Its hard to wear a shirt sometimes, wrapped in a blanket wrong, sometimes it even stops me from sleeping on my chest. I've been a very athletic person my whole life, never had issues in the past. Its not always uncomfortable but when it is, sometimes it could bother over the top. My parents think it's OCD with my not wanting stuff on my neck, but I can tell its getting worse and worse.. I know I don't have much info on it but I can't tell you exactly what it is.. I'm clueless and need help!
