Serious phlegm in back of throat gagging me, on proton pump inhibitor for GERD no better, could thyroid be causing problems?

Serious phlegm in back of throat gagging me, on proton pump inhibitor for GERD no better, could thyroid be causing problems?

Probably not thyroid: Even if you have an enlarged thyroid, the thyroid grows out, and it is not common for an enlarged thyroid to cause compressive symptoms. This is more likely from the reflux, or something else. ...Read more

Post nasal drainage: Consider seeing an allergist or ENT or having a ct scan. Fatigue with drainage might be due to allergies or chronic low-grade infection. Also consider irrigating your nose with a sinus rinse kit by neil med. These are in virtually every pharmacy now and can help you clear secretions. Avoid antihistamines. These make infections last longer. Does food stick? You could have eosinophilic esophagitis. ...Read more

Possibly STD: Unless your throat was seriously physically injured, it should have healed in 2 months. Quite possible u acquired an std: chlamydia, gonorrhea, herpes, hpv (wart virus), syphilis, or others. See pcp/ent/std clinic to be tested & treated. If positive for std, tell sexual partner(s) so (t)he(y) can be treated, too. Use preventive measures when possible; avoid casual/anonymous sex. ...Read more

Postnasal drip : Could be causing your symptoms. Try using a saline nasal spray to clean out your nasal passageways. You could also try using an over the counter spray such as nasacort (triamcinolone) or an antihistamine tablet at bedtime. If not helping see your doctor. Take care! ...Read more

I've been sick with a cold, sore throat, coughing, gagging, I went to an instant care in Salt Lake, yet the doctor said that I'd be feeling better within 2, or 3 days, yet I've now been sick for 6 days now why is that huh? Just wondering!

Course varies: The doctor was giving you a rough estimate. The time course for a cold (which is what your symptoms sound like) varies a lot from person to person and virus to virus. It's not unusual to have cold symptoms for 2-3 weeks. Generally there should be no worsening after the first 5-7 days. If high fever, severe pain, or breathing trouble develop at this point, another exam is needed. ...Read more

Maybe. Maybe not.: 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). Throat lozenges and Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin can decrease throat pain. ...Read more
