Help! I don't know what this is but for the last couple of weeks I have felt like I am being strangled. It's not like there is something caught in my throat but like my windpipe is being pushed in from the outside. I'm probably not explaining this very well! This morning I have been coughing due to the tickle this is causing. I can't seem to stop coughing. Not hard wracking coughs, but constant. I'm drinking tea and water to try to stop it but it's not helping. I'll try a cough drop. The cough is not as scarey as the throat thing. Just feels kind of like something is squeezing all the way around my windpipe. Any ideas? Hugzz Greenbean Stop and smell the puppies!
