I have had alot of mucus in my throat and am a sufferer of chronic catarrh at the best of time and often have to keep clearing throat.  It feels like a prickly lump sensation in my throat, would you think this could  be caused by the catarrh At times I will get a funny feeling in the side of my neck like in the glands,  but, not very often. My nose runs, ears at times feel bit blocked and at times I will sneeze. I have just had a tooth taken out as I had an abcess and have been on antibiotics so thought this would help any mucus etc as it was an antibiotic which treated any bacteria infection. I have also been suffering with anxiety. Can anyone tell me what they think is causing this discomfort in throat. Is it anxiety related or tonsillitis, tho, have no white pus showing and if so, would these antibiotics help clear any infection up?

    Sounds like a chronic infection. What does your doctor think?

      I went to the Dr about a month ago telling her I felt tired, nose running, catarrh etc. She checked my lungs, they were fine, ears were clear. Oxygen levels 98% good and gave me a prescription for a nasal spray. She then carried out a full blood count and I was found to be minor anaemia so am on folic acid tablets for awhile.

      However, since seeing her I developed an abcess infection & was in raging pain, the dentist put me on strong antibiotic tablet x5 days, had tooth out so many days later and my throat has since developed this annoying prickly lump sensation in throat, it is not so bad at the end of day when getting tired, this is why I thought perhaps, anxiety, tho, only guessing. I know with anxiety you can get an anxiety condition in throat called globus hystericus (something like that) - lump in throat sensation, but, wouldn’t think you would get the prickly feeling.

    It can be quite a few things...go and see your GP have some tests and a referral to a throat specialist maybe.
