Is it normal to feel a narrowing sensation in the esophagus?
1 Replies
Sophia - January 4

In addition to many of the symptoms of fibromyalgia, I have something tha I have not read about much. About 4 to 5 times a day, my esophagus feels like it's narrowing and I feel like I have to eat something right away. It's not like choking... it definitely feel like the muscles are constricting and it causes physical pain. Is this normal in patients with fibromyalgia?

Hi Sophia. This is a new question for me. I have a hard time swallowing at times and I do not know why. My guess is as you say the muscles are consticting not allowing you to swollow or the esophagus is dry which can also cause the problem. You may also have trigger points caused by myofascial pain syndrome and you will need to relieve those areas by gentle stroking under the chin and throat area. I would let the doctor know about this and see what he has to say about it. Our bodies are full of muscles and that is the definite culprit with this condition. Work the muscles.
