Hi all, I had RT to the parotid salivary gland area and down one side of my neck, just off centre so that it didn't incude the windpipe. For the last month I have had the feeling in my neck, like someone has a hold of my windpipe and is squeezing it. It is not restricting my breathing or swallowing, but is uncomfortable. My head and neck specialist didn't have anything helpful to say about it. I am wondering if anyone else has experienced this and come up with a solution? I was wondering if there are muscles which circle the neck which might have stiffened up, (the ones going verticaly certainly have) which might be pulling on my neck, and whether getting a physiotherapist to give my neck a good twist and stretch might do some good?
