For about a week and a half I have been having a weird sensation in my throat when I inhale and exhale. It's somewhat like when you breathe in really cold air when outside. It doesn't hurt, it's mostly just an annoying feeling. Any ideas?
I have had this same sensation for about 3 weeks. I breathed in a strong synthetic fragrance and notice it around this time. However I also made some changes to my home at the same time like non-toxic cleaning products, non-toxic soaps/shampoos, new toothpaste, etc. I went to my GP and told him about accidentally breathing in a fragrance (i cleaned an old bottle and thought the smell was gone) and he said it's more than likely a slight chemical burn. He listened to my lungs and I did a breathing test and passed with great numbers, so he said I have not caused any permanent damage and to give it a few weeks to heal. Well it's already been around 3 and nothing has improved. It doesn't hurt when I breathe, but it's extremely annoying to feel this constant cold air sensation in my chest/throat/nasal areas
I have read on some other forums that this sensation is associated with heartburn/GERD but I don't have symptoms for those ailments so I don't see how I could be suffering from that.
How long before your condition improved?
I have the same cold sensation in the back of my throat. It's been there for 5 days and is nothing painful, just strange. I'm seeing these complaints all over the internet but no follow up on if and when it went away. Or what it was.
Actually the feeling I've had in my throat for three weeks that I described in my thread is pretty much like what you're describing: it's a cold sensation when breathing, like I would feel if out walking or running in cold weather. Kind of a cold 'burn'. I'll be keeping an eye on this thread. My other symptoms are: feeling of pulse in throat (this could be anxiety), nasal congestion, clearing throat, etc.
I have the same feeling...for about 2.5 weeks now. One side of my windpipe like a 'cold burning' feeling ..mostly when I exhale. No problems with breathing. I do have congestion in sinuses and when I awake in the morning, sneeze alot...blow my nose alot. Late in the day it seems to subside to the point I think it's gone..then the next morning it starts all over again.
I've had a similar sensation to the one you're describing for about 6 weeks.
It started as a throat clearing cough which developed into a full blown one. Slightly swollen throat and I couldn't sleep for the coughing.
I had a swab taken at the GP and she listened to my chest All clear, and she also suggested it could be acid reflux together with PND (post nasal drip).
Told to take Heartburn tablets. Well, this didn't improve things so I went to an ENT chap who stuck a camera up my nose. Saw nothing sinister and agreed with the GP. Two large bottles of Gaviscon and a nasal spray later, my cough has all but gone (at my second visit he's put me on steroid tablets).
However, I now have this really unpleasant cold air sensation and a slightly sore throat! Occasionally I feel a bit short of breath, but not in any way to stop me exercising, but my voice has gone hoarse and sometimes almost disappears altogether!! I'm at my wits end!!!
