I ate a piece of aluminum foil last night. ever since then, my throat has been feeling tight. Is air getting blocked?

Unlikely: It is unlikely that swallowing a piece of aluminum foil would do any harm. To help you clear your throat you dry drinking a carbonated drink.

Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

My sinuses feel blocked up and it gives me really bad sinus headaches and the feeling that my throat closes is constant. What could this be?

My sinuses feel blocked up and it gives me really bad sinus headaches and the feeling that my throat closes is constant. What could this be?

See answer: Unfortunately not quite enough information to give precise advice but a few thoughts come to mind: Possibly the throat closing sensation is related to a post nasal drip or gag reflex. If this has been a constant feeling for number of days it's less likely to be an allergic reaction which would require a trip to the ER. sinusitis> http://bit.ly/1vAJYuJ for consultation>http://bit.ly/1OiIRcI ...Read more

Blocked nose & headache on forehead occasionally,mucus stuck in throat,no cough,feeling breathless once a while, how to confirm whether I have asthma?

I have an 11 year old girl& she just had a sore throat & she has her right ear feeling blocked. Is this so bad? I cant really bring her to the doctor?

A little bit bad: New throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep throat).
