I have noticed this MANY times, and it is clearly no longer a coincidence. Every time I enter the computer area of Wayne State’s undergrad library, and am here for longer than ten minutes, I get this lump in the middle of my throat, like some ball of something is forming there. The surface of my windpipe feels cool, like there’s some menthol or camphor type substance in the air, or like I just inhaled some nasal spray. I have to constantly swollow to keep that lump from really getting in my way of breathing. My throat almost feels like it is expanding.
This is not all in my head, it really happends every time I am in here. It is VERY strange, and I wonder what could make this happen? Is it the air conditioning? I normally am not in airconditioned buildings so that may be it. Or could it be something else? Any ideas? Thanks for any insight you may have.
