28 year old male, 125-135lb, 5'8", 1 pack/day smoker, daily marijuana use, recently went through 4 rounds of antibiotics in 4 months :/
This all started on the right side for a couple weeks, then moved to the left and has stayed there for around 3 months at this point.
This isn't just a feeling, the phlegm is there, I cough it up from time to time. Or maybe its only there some of the time, and just feels like it is all the time. When I eat food it feels like it veers to the right to go down my throat. My left nostril is clogged 95% of the time, on the rare occasion its relieved the throat relieves with it. Burps feel like they dissipate in the chest/throat alot of the time. A few lymph nodes in the neck/under jaw/left side between ear and jaw (not sure if parotid gland, masseter muscle, or something else) are slightly enlarged. The jaw is slightly tender (if I touch it, I'd rate the pain at 0.5). Also feels like my left ear is clogged, very rarely I get a popping sensation with no particular rhythm (doesnt mimic heartbeat, pops are between every 5-20 seconds and lasts for 4-8 hours so far).
I've been to head and neck, ENT, a host of general doctors/nurses/dentists, nobody can tell me what's going on. Thry blame allergies and GERD/LPD, but only effecting one side of the throat/nasopharynx sounds impossible. Especially since I sleep on my right side a majority of the time.
I'm at my wits end. I'm pretty sure the clyndamicin did way more harm than good, allergy pills do nothing, GERD meds do nothing. Please help. I'm constantly clearing my throat and coughing. The right side feels perfectly normal, except for a few lymph nodes that were enlarged (and one hurt the very first day, out of 3) but have shrunk.
