Lately I've been experiencing an itchy throat and chest/lungs. Not just the itchy tickle thing that makes you cough, but a constant itch. It happens at random times, sometimes lasting for 20 minutes and sometimes lasting for a few days. Could this be psychosomatic? I can't seem to find anyone else with this symptom. My latest "issue" with my health anxiety is having fatal allergic reactions to pretty much anything, or having a mast cell disorder (body producing allergic reactions to basically anything, or for no reason at all). For about a year before the itching started, I've also experienced chest and throat pressure with shortness of breath, constant throat clearing, post nasal drip, and cough. I have what feels like acid burning around my diaphragm area as well sometimes. I have considered maybe a problem with acid reflux, but I don't find much info relating the itching to that. I've seen "tickle in the throat" but not the more constant itching that I experience. I know I shouldn't google, but everything online points to allergies/allergic reactions. It's winter in Minnesota so there aren't any pollens or anything, and it isn't consistent with certain foods. I really don't want to go to the doc again because I feel embarrassed and like he's sick of me wasting his time. Is it really possible that the horrible itching is just another manifestation of my anxiety? Thank you!
