Sternohyoid muscle in neck
An_254379 posted:
For the past year, I've had a pain in the right side of my neck/esophagus. the pain has caused me to have pain, difficulty swallowing, breathing, strain when talking, feeling of throat swelling, feeling of food being stuck/regurgitating and constant phlegm in throat. I think it is leading to other digestive problems that I've had since. I've been to an ENT and a GI doctor. I've had all tests done including Barium Swallow, Upper Endoscopy, MRI of Neck (without contrast) and laryngoscopy but was told all was essentially normal. I hate to self diagnose but since my doctors can't, I am trying to do so myself. My assumption is the muscle that is giving me the trouble is the Sternohyoid muscle. Does anyone have any experience or advice on what may be the problem, remedies and/or tips on how to diagnose? Thanks for any tips/advice you can offer.

Hi, I am having the same problems. It has been a year since you've posted your message, so i wondered how have you been feeling lately and what was the diagnosis?

Sadly, I still have the same symptoms. It improved for a while (though not 100%) but lately has resurfaced. If you get any diagnosis, please share.
