Feel like something is stuck at the back of my tongue or throat
For the past two days I feel like there is something stuck at the rear end of my tongue on the right side... Actually I cant even figure out if it is on my tongue or my throat, but when I swallow I feel like a husk is stuck somewhere behind there. It gives me this really irritating feeling. There is no pain or any swelling, just a lot and lot of irritation.

Anyone been through this? How do I get this cleared? It is soooo darn irritating.

Hi,

You seem to be having Laryngo-pharyngeal reflux, which is secondary to acid-reflux disease. No need to worry, drink plenty of warm water, avoid alcohol/ smoking/ stress if any. If this continues then try taking proton pump inhibitors. Still, if you feel its not improving please get yourself examined by an apt ENT specialist.

Thank you. I just read about  Laryngo-pharyngeal reflux and do not have any other symptom.  Is it possible for my condition to be  Laryngo-pharyngeal reflux without any of the other symptoms?

Hi,

It is indeed possible to have Laryngo-pharyngeal reflux without any other symptoms. More over your query does not mention about any other problems apart from this. Try the methods which I suggested if it is not improving please do consult an ENT specialist.
