Having first noticed it during the weekend, I've been suffering with this sensation of a lump or something - a hair, it feels like - in the bottom of my throat, just under the Adam's apple, just to the left. It's the feeling of half soreness (as in getting a sore throat), and half irritation.
And like many, I went on the internet and scared myself because of what I saw. A condition for which there is no cure. I already have one of those, thank you (Tinnitus) and having another really doesn't make anything easier.
I did, however, find something that put me to a bit of rest - ironically a mum's net discussion where the suggestion was that it was caused either by stress, a steroid based inhaler, or a cut in the throat caused by certain foods. All of which are possible, as I have to have an inhaler for allergies (the blue and the brown on weekends), dealing with tinnitus (along with uni and life) is stressful in itself, and of course, I eat (nom).
Eating and drinking does seem to help it become more unnoticable, but I'm still starting to get scared again. And by the look of some of these threads, going to the Doctor's is pointless.
Why is it that I'm getting all the annoying cureless conditions? It's screwing everything up! My creativity, my confidence....my willingness to find a boyfriend......
Does this go away over time or do I have to learn to live with it like I have to with T? Do I need to take something?
Please, any help is appreciated....
