In brief: Need more history

Any form of inflammation at the back of the throat can produce the sensation you are describing.
Generally this should resolve uneventfully in several days, but if it persists, gets worse, or is accompanied by other symptoms would suggest you see your doctor. You might try gargling with a saline solution which will help to reduce swelling.
