    Carotid artery
    I would like to know if a person has carotid artery disease do they experience trouble with their throat? Like your throat is closing up?

    Only if there is a carotid artery aneurysm.

    Hmmm, throat closing up? If you can't talk or breath go to the ER!!

    Consider, acid reflux, infection, allergic reaction, tumor...

    I have not heard of a carotid artery with thrombus, only stenosis
