Lotsa Possibilities:: Think about your environment: second-hand smoke? local air pollution? working with any chemicals (at work, at home)? dry air (low humidity)? work in an office (ventilation; fans; new furniture; housekeeping)? dusty air? pollen in the air? raining frogs?? Next might be your diet and/or nocturnal reflux. Postnasal drip. There are other (uncommon) possibilities, but start thinking about these first. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
The cough reflex is a protective mechanism that uses muscles in your throat and chest to expel mucous and saliva that may contain pathogens that would otherwise possibly be inhaled via aerosol or to expel pathogens infecting the throat and respiratory system. Cough benefits the host by reducing load and benefits the pathogen which may then spread via aerosol. ...Read more

I have a tickle in my lower throat that makes me cough, especially when I press it. Acid reflux? Or a scratch from a carrot I choked on 7 weeks ago?
GERD 1 possibility: GERD is 1 possibility. Abrasion from carrot is unlikely after 7 weeks, and probably wishful thinking. Also consider sinusitis, asthma (or asthmatic-type reaction), and allergy, of course, given this time of year in Illinois. Very typical symptoms in patients seen by allergists. Might be time to see one! ...Read more

Antihistamines: The most common reason for having a throat tickle is allergy. You may or may not have runny/itchy eyes & nose with sneezing; but it is worth a try. Daily, non-sedating claritin, (loratadine) zyrtec, or Allegra should do the trick. This may be a seasonal thing, or may be year round. If it is more of a constant thing, then switch your daily antihistamine every 2-3 months to maintain the effect. ...Read more
? reflux: If this only happens every night when you lay down to go to bed - this sound like it is most likely being caused by gastroesophageal reflux. Would probably be helped most by seeing an ENT doc to look down your throat to see - and if the appearance of your vocal corsds confirms this possibility, then seeing a gastoenterologist for complete work-up and treatment. ...Read more

Dr. can check throat: 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 help decrease throat pain. ...Read more
Have a pain under my left shoulder blade that hurts when i cough or clear throat.the pain radiates down arm with little finger tingling?
Pinched nerve: Because patients having cardiac problems can have these symptoms, you should have this ruled out. But the most common cause is an irritation of a nerve in the neck by a bone spur or herniation that can cause pain or numbness that runs down the arm into the hand. An MRI can usually show the cause of the problem if it does not resolve. Thank you for the question. ...Read more
