In need of Help!

I'm a 28 year old female. First I had an ear infection then I had this feeling as if something is stuck in my throat. I went to the Doctor and was given Amoxcillin. The ear infection is gone but the feeling as if dust or hair is in the back of my throat (upper left, in the back, just behind the uvula is what it feels like). It's getting on my nerves. It doesn't hurt at all, but the feeling is driving me crazy sometime I start panicking. My family said I should stop thinking about it but I don't know how to stop. I have no fever, no swollen glands, and there's nothing visually amiss based on my inspection with a flashlight in front of the mirror. I am tired of visiting the ER but the end result is always allergies. I have been taken all different types of allergy medications. Nothing  seems to help. I have also used so many nasal spays I don't know what to do anymore. Upon visiting an ENT, he inserted a tube in my nose with a camera so he could see what was going on but I was told everything seems to be perfect. I've gargled, I've coughed, I've tried clearing my throat in different ways, but nothing is helping. I have carpeted floors in my residence and sometimes I wonder if this is could be affecting me.

Any ideas on what could be going on? O any solution to this issue? Thank You.

Hello Nickeasha.

Get rid of the carpet.  Get an air purifier off of QVC.  Start building up you immune system.  Take vitamin C get the 1000mg at walmart.  Take 5 three times a day for a couple of days then back off to 3000-5000mg a day.  Your body has to fight something so help it fight.  I get honey from local bees.  Maybe your antihistamines are drying out the back of your throat... The key is getting  your immune system built up.  Google natural cures.  hot tea and honey.  Honey is a superfood.  Try it!!!

Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
Something stuck in the throat or irritating it can be due to post nasal drip, if you have recurrent cold and sinusitis. It can also be an allergic reaction to something you eat. Common allergens causing post nasal drip are pollen, mold, dust, pet dander, cosmetics or drugs. You must get an allergy test done, either a skin test or by RAST, to know what you are allergic to. Seasonal allergies are generally due to pollen or dust. Any cosmetic you apply on face or eye or even for your hair like shampoos or dyes too can cause allergies.
The other possibility is that you have a foreign body in nose, deviated nasal septum. This makes a person prone to repeated infections and allergy like symptoms.
Another possibility is laryngopharyngeal reflux. It can also be gastric reflux due to weak esophageal sphincter or due to hiatal hernia. This throws the stomach content into the throat without heartburn. Raise head end of bed. Take Omeprazole empty stomach in morning and an antacid gel at bedtime. Refrain from smoking, alcohol, fuzzy drinks and spicy food. See if these tips help. Take care!
