I've been suffering badly with HA for the last 18 months but starting from May last year all my symptoms started to be around the neck area.
It started with a strange rubbing feeling coming from my adams apple area shortly after I swallow saliva. Doctors were dismissive and called it globus but I have yet to find anything written with similar symptoms. You can actually hear it, it seems to get louder early in the morning and late at night.
In June I started to feel a couple of small bumps under my chin (I think they are the submandibular glands). They were a challenge to find at first but got progressively more noticeable to the point I can now feel them instantly (they are about 10mm one side is fairly cypherical and the other slightly larger and flatter) and can move them around my jaw. It almost seems like they have drooped.
Shortly after I came across a couple more glands still under the jaw but more towards the ear, these feel hard and much smaller.
December saw the arrival of yet another gland. This one is on the left side of my throat near the Adams apple area. Its slowly gotten bigger and is about he size and shape of a piece of sweet corn.
Right now I can feel all 5 glands above but also if I prod just below the corner of each jaw I can feel some that feel to be fairly flat and 15mm or more. If I tense my neck and throat muscles I can feel a whole lot more too.
The doctor is fairly dismissive of them all. I have a blood test pending but apart from that no action has been taken. Although I hope the doctor is right a little more proof would have helped. It just seems a little too coincidental that all these problems are occurring in the throat area.
I seem to be in a complete panic at the moment which is having a massive effect on those around me. I know it's impossible to diagnose but I'm posting to see if anyone else has had similar experiences and to see if there really are harmless outcomes to it all?
