I'm 31 y/o female, nonsmoker, no alcohol. I have this feeling in my throat that something is stuck or swollen. I think I feel my right tonsil swollen and it seems to come and go, but for the most part it is swollen. No sore throat. I have had blood test done and methacoline challenge test done. Blood work shows allergies and methacoline challenge test shows it could be vocal cord dysfunction. I still have to see a allergist and speech therapist. My question is does my swollen tonsil have anything to do with this? I also had chest x-ray done and shows thoracic spine changes. I went back to my lung doc. today and she told me that the last blood work I had done shows I have severe allergies to dust mites and mild allergies to dogs. Is this what is causing my tonsil to be swollen? Anyone know what I might have? I'm tired if feeling like I can't breathe right with my tonsil swollen. I'm afraid my throat is going to close up on me.
