Odd sensations and feelings around throat area

Posted , 2 users are following.

About 2-3wks ago i felt the sensation of something in my throat. Typically around the adam apples, throat and back of throat. It either feels like hoarseness, post nasal drip or just a simple 'something is stuck' odd sensation. It is not painful nor do i have any swallowing issues. The degree of sensation comes and goes throughout the day and completely goes when i am laying down, so no issues when sleeping. I think i have even had days when it wasn't even there.

I did have a post nasal drip lasting a few months last year, so it could be just that. However I never experienced the other symptoms and there doesn't appear to be anything physical which shouldn't be there or any mischief going on in the back of my throat (at least as far as i can see). I originally thought this was just a minor sore throat and gave it little thought.

I have an doctors appointment scheduled in 3 weeks as may as well get it checked out. Thought while waiting maybe someone in the community may have experienced similar and can offer advice, reassurance or suggestions?

Many thanks,

    Went to ent. Ive already had an endoscopy and biopsy, all Negative. That was last year. Ent looked down throat with mirror. Was very thorough. He said my voice box area was irritated. Explains why it bothers me to yell. Antibiotics for 3 weeks. Will see how it goes. Oh ya, he pulled a chunk of ear was out of right ear. PAINFUL!!!! How is your deal going rich76489

      Good to hear Tamiel, well not the pain part but the rest isn't sounding too sinister at least...

      Mine feels a lot better and a marked decrease in symptoms - I just mostly feel a post nasal drip. I remember from last year it produced the most weird sensations. Two weeks until my appointment so will see how it goes as well smile

      Hey Tam,

      So i saw the doc and they did some basic examinations. Nothing sinister and I had largely forgotten about it since I no longer have any pain or discomfort. Just some dryness, a little post nasal drip and throat clearing. Doc mentioned it could be an allergic reaction due to occurring exactly the same time as last year (and last yr was very sinister as i had post viral fatigue). 

      I may investigate further and see if i can dial down whether it is a reaction and by what. All in all, everything is all good - How's everything going with yours?

    Good to hear buddy! Mine is ok, had a scope done on Monday. Doc said everything was good. Just a sinus infection on one side. Have me flonase and took a sample to determine what type antibiotics to use. The "drainy" feeling is because mucase is draining on one side. And dryness is still on n off. Thank the lord nothing bad

      Apol, just seen this - Excellent news that it is nothing bad. Unrelated to my previous throat issues (absolutely convinced its an allergy), my jaw locked from gum chewing and hasn't released (3 wks half open mouth). Joy o joys haha. At least when it's physical you know what the issue it. Been to hospital (no structural damage to jaw thank god), and seeing my primary doc once i return back to my country in 2 weeks.
