      To add to my troubles, yesterday after some rigorous exercise with shoulders/upper body, I developed a sensation of crunching/clicking when I swallow. Its like the cartillage in my throat is rubbing agaist each other in the up and down swallowing motion. It is causing discomfort and pain.
      I am Googling that it is a rare condition...
      Anybody had this ? Prognosis?

      Or most likely that you have strained the muscles there.

      If I push things I can get a sore throat feeling and constriction in the throat. It's the muscles that go from the back of your neck round to the front, very easy to hurt if you go too hard with exercise or your form isn't great. It can feel like you're swallowing something all the time and make noise.

      Vague throat discomfort after vigorous exercise can be a sign of a cardiac problem.

      You'll notice when you strain with weights you really tense your neck. It's very common. Often clenching your teeth which tenses the neck.

      When you recover and get back to the weights concentrate on form. The more you focus on the muscles you're working out the better your form will get. A common mistake (that I've made plenty) is trying to lift weights that are too heavy; if you use most of your body and throw the weights around it's too much, you should be able to control the weight in a smooth, full motion.

    7. This is my biggest problem when it comes to lifting. Almost impossible to do it without clenching and put pressure on an already tensed neck, even with lighter weights. Doing only cardio atm.
