I have been having troubles with my throat for the last 7-8 month,it started right after I found out I had Hypothyroid so I thought it was just a symptom of that but as time went on it got worse and my doctors said that my thyroid problems would not be causing the symptoms I was having so they did 2 CAT scans,an Ultrasound,Many Throat cultures and put a scope up my nose and down my throat....But the only thing they seemed to find is that I have LPR/acid reflux and I had Chronic Tonsillitis so they took my Tonsils out about 3 moths ago put me on Prevacid but that did not help so my GP put me on Flexril to see if I was just having throat spasms,and that didn't help so he is trying me on a different acid med called pantoprazole I have been on it almost a month and I have seen no change in my symptoms....and just recently I noticed a lump of tissue behind where my left tonsil used to be have not got in to the doctor about it yet but am going to set up an appointment soon. I guess what I am wondering is if anyone else has had this problem and what it could be?
here is a list of my symptoms they are some times severe and sometimes just bothersome
feels like some thing is stuck in my throat
a squeezing sensation like being strangled
feels like my throat is swollen
I get little pieces of food stuck in my throat (like rice, raspberry seeds etc.)
please if anyone could help me I would greatly appreciate it
Hi, It might be one of several reasons. I have gained a lot of weight recently and have noticed my throat having issues, similar to yours, and maybe it's the fact that I have gained weight. I also have acid reflex, which doesn't help the situation. Consider getting an xray, maybe you have a tumor that is not being noticed by any of the technology? Sleep apnea can also be related to weight.
thank you for replying but I have almost every test on my throat and they can not find anything wrong,and I don't think the sleep apnea has anything to do with my weight I am not that heavy for my height but thank you for your advise :)
