Globus pharyngeus: Globus pharyngeus is the sensation of something stuck in your throat. It isn't likely that you still have something stuck, but irritation from food (plastic?) going down in a rough way can cause globus.

I have a what could be best described by me as a long bleeding sore hanging from my throat nera my tonsil it doesn't hurt but its odd looking and it feels like I have a piece of plastic stuck on my throat when I swallow. Is this an emergency?

If: If you are having symptoms of soreness, and have noticed blood in your sputum, this should be evaluated in a timely, not necessarily, urgent manner. My level of concern would be heightened if you also had a significant smoking and/or drinking history. The " odd look" also has me concerned. I would have an ENT in your area check this out, and if it looks suspicious, I am sure he will biopsy it. ...Read more

It: It would be a good idea to get a chest x-ray to see if a foreign object can be identified.
With what I can gather from your limited history, I would recommend an evaluation by a physician. I understand that cost is an issue, so I would recommend an urgent care facility that does x-rays on site. It is a much cheaper alternative that a hospital er. ...Read more

I took a fat burner pill (plastic pill) I feel like a lump behind my throat no pain swallowing at all but sometimes fell weak what could this be?

Something stuck: The pill may be stuck in your throat however, this is usually not the case. Often something irritates the throat when swallowed but still goes down. But it leaves the sensation that a lump is there. If there is something stuck it needs to be removed. See your local ENT doctor for an exam. ...Read more

I have this one dark vein in back of throat. Also it looks like I have red/white craters on my tonsils, and also I see excessive saliva, and sometimes it feels like I have food stuck in throat but when I swallow it won’t go away?

I have this one dark vein in back of throat. Also it looks like I have red/white craters on my tonsils, and also I see excessive saliva, and sometimes it feels like I have food stuck in throat but when I swallow it won’t go away?

Otolaryngologist: Have a thorough examination by an Otolaryngologist. The specks are probably tonsillar stones which are old food and other debris. They are usually insignificant. Anxiety can cause a sensation of a lump in the throat. I doubt that the vein is pathological. For peace of mind an examination by a throat specialist will be helpful. ...Read more
