    throat spasmns

    Hi all I am struggling with loads of mucus at moment, and also have recently been having spasms in my larynx. It is very scary as the ability to breathe is gone completely through the nose or mouth, they only last for about 30 seconds but it seems much longer, has anyone else experienced these and any advice would be very welcome. Xxx Jan Q.

    Hi Jan;

    I have been having throat spasms for a few years now where the throat seams to close up. Not sure if it's just in the brain or/and a physical thing. My only thought is that if I pass out the muscles would relax and breathing would start again. A bit callous but true. It has never happened and I don't panic like I used to now.

    Mucus was a hell of a problem when I had a man cold but fortunately I don't yet have that problem.

    Love Terry

    I had that, had a succession of paramedics around to clear mucus. It is scary! I

    If I get panicked by spasms, I take 0.25 mgs lorezepam under my tongue to relax muscles. Within ten minutes it works It is a sedative so may make you drowsy! But it is worth it!

    Peter calls them my funny tablets!

    Might be worth getting them prescribed

    Much Iove

    The presence of mucus in the nose and throat is necessary. It moistens and cleans the nasal membranes, humidifies air, traps and clears inhaled foreign objects or infectious agents (i.e., fungi, bacteria and virus), and fights infection. The average human body produces about a liter of mucus per day. Normally, you don't notice all that mucus because it drips down the back of your throat and you swallow it. Only when your body produces more thin mucus, or the mucus is thicker than usual that it becomes more noticeable. This increased mucus production in the nose and throat could be a sign and symptom of many common illnesses that include common cold, influenza, allergies, asthma, sinusitis, chronic bronchitis, deviated septum, cold temperatures or excess dryness in the air, and certain foods or medications (including birth control pills and blood pressure medications). Is your nose and throat discharge thin and watery, or is it thick? Is it bloody? What color is it? How long has it been present? Has it been present all the time? As you know, nasal mucus is normally clear and thin. During times of infection, it can change color to yellow or green either as a result of trapped bacteria or due to your body's reaction to viral infection. Mucus build-up is also caused by cystic fibrosis with extremely thick production of mucus that is difficult to expel. However, sometimes the problem is not that you are producing too much mucus, but that it's not being cleared away effectively. For instance, swallowing problems can cause a buildup of liquids in the throat. I would suggest a visit with a primary care physician to have your condition checked out and establish a diagnosis so that you can be treated appropriately.
