Probable Virus: More than likely you have a viral sore throat. It could have associated fever, a white covering on the tonsils and back of the throat, swollen lymph glands in the neck, under the jaw and you could even have a rash. Strep throat could do the same. If you have not ingested anything to cut or abrade the throat or back of throat, then viral would come to mind, though others could cause this. ...Read more

Globus feeling: Hello, the sensation that you may be feeling could be coming from a condition called globus pharyngitis. This is usually caused by a reflux of juices from your stomach up through your esophagus into the area around your vocal cords. This irritation occurs over a long time. See your ENT doctor where he/she will perform an endoscopy to confirm the cause of your symptoms. Good luck. ...Read more

Exam: It could be a foreign body sensation from irritation or something more. Have a doctor take a look. You might need someone who can look down behind your tongue, like an ENT (ears, nose & throat) doctor who has a flexible scope, or a mirror to look down there. As long as you're breathing ok you can wait a few days, but, if it's really annoying have it checked. ...Read more
