Poohbear Posted August 29, 2005 Report Share Posted August 29, 2005 I've been having problems for nearly a week now, this has happened before and I've never gotten any Dr to figure it out or what to do to get some relief.It usually starts with a feeling in my throat. I'm assuming it's a muscle spasm because I can sometimes get in a position where I'm comfortable but then if I move It seems to get my gag reflect going. At first, it seemed that maybe it was a digestive problem because my esophagus didn't feel right either...slight burning, my tummy was bloated and seemed like everything was just sitting.I backed off of eating and even though I'm no longer bloated this isn't going away.I do notice that when I first wake up I will feel better and when I sit up and start moving around it comes back on me. Seems that when I type or read or keep my head down it gets worse. Once it gets going again though, sometimes if I lay down to try to get relief it does feel like I may have some slight burning sensation (I can't tell if this is heartburn or not). Once I get comfortable again though I feel better lying down (generally speaking).I can't really tolerate meds so that's not an option. Any ideas on how to figure out if this is muscle vs. digestive and/or how to figure out which muscles are the trigger? I do know any exercise I've done on my arms will make this worse or if I get it calmed down thinking it's gone exercise on my arms will make it come right back.Have any of you had something like this?
