Post-nasal drip?: Allergy-related swelling of the back of the throat can make a feeling of swelling. Irritation from acid reflux can cause a local inflammation also. If the problem continues an examination by a physician is warranted.

Globus Hystericus: Is the silly name given to this because it is usually described as "like a lump in my throat". It is actually evidence of an irritable nervous system. Visit my blog "oxygen, the spark of life" that you can google.

Glomus sensation: Feeling like there's something stuck in the back of your throat, or glomus sensation, can be associated with many things, such as inflammation of part of the larynx/hypopharynx (part of the throat), cricopharyngeal spasm or gastroesphageal reflux (GERD). It can also be attributed to psycogenic causes and/or stress. I recommend you see your doctor for a complete history and physical exam.

Globus Sensation: The "lump in the throat" sensation is often caused by inflammation of one or more parts of the throat, such as the larynx or hypopharynx, due to cricopharyngeal spasm, gastroesophageal reflux (gerd) ;, laryngopharyngeal reflux. There can also be a "pouch" in your esophagus (zenker's diverticulum) which can "catch" swallowed food. Barium swallow to check anatomy. Ent or GI depends on location.

Uvula: I think you are looking at the Uvula which probably was not very clear with the big tonsils that were removed You can not see the Epiglottis usually when looking at it through the throat Uvula is the soft protrusion of the back of the throat and it is totally normal

Severe GERD: Can be associated with a laringitis and a pharyngitis. Most probably you wake up at night during sleep with coughing and acid taste at your mouth. Avoid food like tomatoes or tomato sauce, acid fruits and juices, coffee, sodas, chocolate, alcohol, spicy and fatty food, broccoli etc. Avoid eating late a night specially large meals, try 6 smaller meals a day, loose weight, avoid tight cloths.

I have experienced severe bad breath for 5 years now. Itfeels like there is something stuck at the back of my mouth and throat that i can't get out. What should I do?

Consult ASAP!: There are many causes of bad breath. However, what deeply concerns me is what you feel in the back of your throat. It could be an infection or a growth. You should see an oral surgeon and\or an ear nose and throat specialist as soon as possible for an evaluation. These things can lead to serious complications and even be life threatening. Don't delay. Hopefully it is not serious.

?Treated?: You are not considered contagious for strep after you have been on antibiotics for 24 hours. Your employer may of may not have other requirements, but this is the basic issue I use for clearing a patient to get back to work.

GetTheeToADoctorry..: Based on what you have written, it will be best if you see a doctor if this pattern repeats itself one or two more times or you start to feel worse before then. There is a host of things that may cause this (some serious) and so if it doesn't go away quickly, get it checked out. In the meantime take Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin for the fever and keep up with fluids and if you work, take a day or two off.
