So back at the end of August I woke up with a sore throat on one side. I felt sick like I was coming down with something. Next day I noticed a bubble bump looking thing under my tongue so i went to the Dr who said it was a blocked saliva gland? Told me to suck on lemons and gave me ZPAC to take. A few days later it finally unclogged!! But the sore throat continued with a little trouble swallowing. I also was getting a metallic sour taste in my mouth and some acid coming up my throat. I immediately thought it was acid reflux causing the problem so I cut out certain foods and started taking Tums daily. Some days were better than others but then at the end of November it felt like my throat was totally shut! I could eat and drink but it felt like I had to swallow REALLY hard to get anything down. It started giving me anxiety so I went to ER. They said glands ok, throat was a little red and nose was a little irritated (ive also had crazy post nasal drip since this 1st started). They gave me Amox. to take and sent me home. The swallowing got worse and worse!! I was swalloeing SO hard all the time and my mouth was beyond dry despite drinking tons of water, having tea with raw honey ect. I also started burping up white foamy globs of junk and wouls spit them out. It was like I was throwing them up but they werent coming from my stomach, it was whatever was clogging up my throat. My throat felt a little better after that would happen but would eventually come back. Soo back to ER. Did CAT SCAN because I begged them to check into this further! Said scan was fine and referred me to ENT which I go to tomorrow for a scope which i dont understand because I thought the scan was a pretty good test....
Has anyone else had these issues??? I also have left front chest pain and upper back pain as well as neck pain and sometimes feel like I cant take a deep breath on my left side. Had chest xray and that was also fine. Funny thing to me is nobody has given me a strep test or done any blood work.
I need advice! Especially before going to ENT so I kmow what to ask or demand ect.
