Throat: Usually you get a scratch to the throat followed by muscle spasm causing your symptoms Take papain and brome lain to reduce scratch symptoms Ask doctor for topical anesthetic This is like a scratched eye where you keep squeezing your eye and prolonging symptoms See. Clear Ease at www. Grossan. Com Try to relax to lower throat spasm

Viral/ENT eval: If it is an acute symptom, it may be a viral infection but if it continues to persist you may benefit from an ENT evaluation. Be sure to have your general doctor see you first.

I have recently began to experience a sharp pain at the bottom of my throat / top of chest whenever I begin to run!? Recently recovered from the flu..

Sounds benign.: Although we can never be sure, in a 19 year old recovering from flu it would not be uncommon to have something like this.

What could cause sharp pain the the bottom left of the throat lasting 5 seconds after drinking cold drinks? I have had it for the past month.

Warning: Acute pain is biologically useful; it is symptomatic and prevents a body from the future injury. In you case the drink is too cold and you get the warning.

After coughing up phlegm. I have pain in the bottom portion of my throat. I also have pain in my jaw and chin unrelated. Do I need urgent attention?

After coughing up phlegm. I have pain in the bottom portion of my throat. I also have pain in my jaw and chin unrelated. Do I need urgent attention?

I would: Sometimes jaw and chin pain can be related to the heart. Granted your main complaint was coughing up phlegm it certainly is prudent to call your doctor or go to an urgent care or emergency room to address both issues. Good luck

Food gets stuck at, bottom of throat and lingers?

Throat or food pipe: Food stuck in the throat is a physical phenomenon that can be caused by a number of factors, such as a throat/swallowing problem or a food pipe problem. A primary care doctor may help figure this out. Food pipe problems best evaluated by a gastroenterologist, swallowing problems best evaluated by an ENT physician (otolaryngologist).

GERD: One possibility is gastro-esophageal reflux. (gerd) this entity is extremely common and is the result of reflux of acid from the stomach up the esophagus to the throat and causes burning. There are many otc drugs that can reduce the symptoms. But the best advice is to consult a GI specialist for a specific diagnosis.

LPR: Laryngopharygeal reflux is when a small amount of acid comes up into the throat and irritates it. It is a common cause of dry tickle cough, chronic sore throat, lump in the the throat, feeling of the throat closing, post nasal drip, phlegm in the throat, and throat clearing. Many studies show it responds best to proton pump inhibitor Rx. See an ENT doctor.

What is it when you feel something in the bottom of your throat, as a preteen?

What is it when you feel something in the bottom of your throat, as a preteen?

Tonsils: I assume you're asking about your child. At that age symptoms down in the back of the throat could be from large tonsils and this should be checked out. Acid reflux can happen in someone that age and can cause similar symptoms. You would have to start with a check by your PCP. Good health

Ans: You must irrigate the sinus. Hot fluids will help you. Also you could use Benadryl (diphenhydramine) to dry the sinus. But you are best to irrigate them with hot fluids. The nasal sprays can be helpful. Rest hydrate and don't smoke
