Can post nasal drip cause constant feeling of something stuck in throat for 3 months? Goes away when i eat and for a min after brushing nack of tounge

Possible, see more: The feeling of "post nasal drip" associated with the feeling of something in the throat (often call "globus symptom") may be due to excessive mucous production such as with a cold or allergies however it is often that the mucous accumulates in the throat because it does not pass through the esophagus to your stomach smoothly. This is the case in patients with esophageal reflux due to esophageal spasm. Other reasons for swallowing disorder are strictures, tumor, achalasia, diverticulum, or altered anatomy. You may need to see doctor to evaluate this problem. ...Read more

There : There are many things that can cause this sensation. Most of the time it is due to reflux of acid into the throat. You can have symptoms of acid in the throat without the normal esophageal symptoms of indigestion or heartburn. Many times we can't find anything wrong, even after doing an evaluation with scopes. I feel many of these symptoms may be due to muscle tension in the many muscles that control the throat and neck. This tension may cause the pressure sensations. These are exacerbated in those that have an anxious personality. This will not get better with the typical anti-acid remedies. ...Read more

Can neck tension cause a constant weird lightheaded feeling for 24/7 for 5 yrs sometimes swaying feeling eyes funny drs tell me anxiety I worry it's m?

M?: 5 yrs of constant tension - truer if you know some is in your neck - certainly can result in balance/vision disturbances. Proper oxygen, blood and nerve impulse supply, etc. is thrown off balance so you are too. Ask your therapist to target anxiety mgmt or for a referral to a CBT anxiety specialist.
