We were doing gi chokes in class over a week ago...and my throat is still tender from it! I dont remember the exact names of the chokes but they were very very tight gi chokes...the kind that you tap immediately!! Anyway today we were doing chokes again and as SOON as the choke was being put on it hurt like hell. Not the typical pain you get when choked...when you feel constricted and cant breath but an actual pain in, around and behind my adams apple.... Has this ever happened to anyone? Is it normal? Does it go away? I have a tourney comin up and if someone even puts a weak choke on me Im going to be forced to tap...so I need to do something about this ASAP! Any help you can give me appreciated!
