Common Questions and Answers about Lump in throat dry mouth

lump

Lump in the throat feeling, dry throat, dry mouth, G/I issues and Sjögren's like symptoms that you're experiencing may all be caused by low thyroid. Conventional medicine, most likely will keep you in limbo. Do a search for "Dr. Barnes Basal Temperature Test". You will need to follow the simple instructions to the "T" and a glass thermometer (not digital). This test will indicate fairly accurately low thyroid function.
I found out by myself, thru a lot of research, that I have Laryngopharyngeal Reflux (LPR). It makes sense to me but . . . The chosen medication from doctors are antiacids (at least one year treatment). We are lucky if we are in the 20% of success otherwise, if it did not go away, the problem gets worse. Believe me it is hell to have that mucous accumulation in the back of the throat. I never had LPR symptoms before three months ago. Now I have slight heartburns and dry mouth.
For the past year or so i have had this small lump in the right side of my throat, almost where my lymphnodes are. I had never had strep throat until about 2 years ago, and i had it twice in that one year really bad. The lump is not painful in any way, the only way i would ever know it was there is if i rub my hand over that area, its not even visibly noticible. I went to the doctor about it and he told me that i had a swollen salivary gland.
In the mornings my throat and mouth feel very dry. Sometimes it feels as if my throat or esophagus is swelling. I am not sure that lump in throat is the right description. I do think that the feeling is worsened by tomatoe based foods and chocolate. I just want relief and to be pointed in the right direction on how to get back a normal feeling in my throat. If there was a problem in my esophagus would the ENT have seen that as well?
the lump in your throat may be due to the irritation and some swelling in the back of your throat as well as the post nasal drip.......
Went to first ENT and he prescribed acid reflux medication, which I took for a month without change in throat lump sensation. Went to Gastroenerologist and she didn't think I had gerd. She took CT scan to hospital for further analysis and determined I had a throat cyst. Went to her recommended ENT and he performed surgery and removed small throat cyst and viral wart. Still feeling persists. I had an MRI but results aren't back yet.
Fo the past 3 or 4 months I have had a feeling of a lump in the Right side of my throat that bothers me when swollowing. It comes and goes. It does not hurt. I also have a burning or dry feeling in that same spot from time to time. The past month I seem to have developed more mucus than usual and I am constantly clearing my throat. Sometimes when I yawn I get a bad taste in my mouth. I also get a lot of anxiety since this began.
I have had the lump for 3 weeks and the dry throat for 2. The lump seems to be smaller rather than larger than when I first noticed. I figure I should get it examined but I hate going to the doctor and don't want to deal with an appointment or 2 if it will just go away. I guess my question is if anyone else has heard of this combo of symptoms or knows about this type of lump.
I would also have a dry mouth, when this happens I drink water and nothing happens just a dry mouth and weird feeling in my throat that makes me feel like I wanna vomit but i don't. I do not get lightheaded or nausea. These symptoms would also wake me up in the middle of my sleep and i would have to go to the bathroom to do a number 2. I am not able to go back to sleep for hours because of the dry mouth and weird feeling. I really don't know what it is. Any advice?
I am limited as to what I can use due to dry mouth and throat problems but know the lump feeling well. It's horrible. If you can maybe try some Fosomax nasal spray, seemed to help my son, however, these can dry you out more. It can be a vicious circle.
Four days after the extraction I noticed that I had a dime size lump just past my gum line going into my throat. My tongue rubs up against it causing more pain. It has now been 2 wks and 1 day, and the lump is now the size of a nickel and the left side of my tongue is numb. It's too painful to eat solid foods or even swallow my own spit, therefore, I have lost alot of weight in 2 weeks.
Hi, The gastrointestinal cause for shortness of breath, feeling of lump in the throat and difficult to swallow is GERD. This can be confirmed with upper GI endoscopy and 24 hours pH monitoring. Since you have panic attacks also, I feel all your symptoms could be functional and an anxiolytic may be beneficial. Consult your doctor for complete evaluation before it could be called functional.
I have the same exact problem with a lump in my throat and excessive mucus in my throat for 6 months also. I have been to doctor after doctor and had every test done. Today I went to a 3rd ENT, and he put a camera in my nose down into my throat and actually saw the abundance of mucus along with swelling. All the other doctors told me it was GERD and it was just a sensation. I knew I wasn't nuts.
my problem is that I have a constant feel of flem in my throat, and need to clear it or cough all the time. I have been taking mucinex, it's not helping. I also take zyrtec for allergies. I don't feel a post nasal drip going on. what could this be?
However, my mouth and throat are dry. ENT doc cannot come up with a cause. Dentist doesn't see anything although I now have an infected tooth on that side. This is now constant and so irritating and I often feel like I am going to choke. I can't blow this stuff out or cough it out, other than a little bit once in a while. Am constantly trying to clear my throat and doc told me to stop doing that. What do you do if you are choking? I drink fluids all the time, chew gum, etc.
difficulty swallowing, dry mouth, cough, lump sensation, pain, post-nasal drip, or throat clearing. You can have one or all of the above. You also have to realize that it's not just acid coming up—there's also bile, digestive enzymes, and bacteria. If you stop breathing for 10 seconds or longer, that's called an apnea. If you stop breathing for 1-9 seconds and wake up, then it won't be counted as an apnea on a sleep study, but you'll still suction up your normal stomach juices.
VCD attacks, cough, voice problems, asthma, globus (feeling of lump in throat), constant need to clear throat, worsening of sinus condition, sore throat, pre-cancerous conditions of throat &/or esophagus, etc. SOME GER/LPR CONTROL THINGS WE DO, that we learned from the excellent book: STOMACH AILMENTS AND DIGESTIVE DISTURBANCES, by Michael T. Murray, N.D. See page 9, References, in my website: http://cantbreathesuspectvcd.com and, also see GER/LPR info on page 5, and on LINKS page.
) Re: Lump in Throat / Globus Hystericus From Lovingkindnes [Log on to view profile] on 2005-05-16 Hello Penny, I was wondering if the Ignatia has been of any help. What does mint have to do with Globus? Any help with what you found benefical would be appreciated. Thank you Re: Lump in Throat / Globus Hystericus From pennythomas [Log on to view profile] on 2005-05-17 Hello Lovingkindness, I used Ignatia 30c, not 6c in the end.
This helps but, recently, I have moved to a 'walkable city' and when I have been walking, especially with a heavy bag, after about 20 minutes, I have a hard dry lump in my throat. My second month here, I walked to a restaurant for breakfast and my lump was so large that my throat could not swallow. I have not felt that since age 7 with chicken pox. I have been found to have rare food allergies to wheat,apples,potatoes,tomatoes and citrus.
it actually happens to me more when i'm out eating in public. if my mouth feels dry i instantly think i'm gonna choke and i can hardly eat.
her throat burns everytime she talks and swallows (occasionally). her voice has became rough/scratchy. she also feels a lump in her throat. help me....so what is it? cancer? or ...
Does the fact that I burp quite a lot when I experience the swollenness/lump in throat feeling help to diagnose it at all? I tend to burp a lot which almost gives a sense of relief.
At the worst times it feels like there is a lump in my throat and pressure in my chest and I also get really painful hiccups sometimes, just one or two at a time. Another Dr. said it was just stress and honestly I think he thought I was making it up because it wasnt happening while I was in his office which wasnt helpful! The one time I want the gurgles... If anyone knows of anythign that actually works I would love to hear it!
While the most common head and neck symptom is a globus sensation (a lump in the throat), the head and neck manifestations can be diverse and may be misleading in the initial work-up. Thus, a high index of suspicion is required. Laryngoscopy can confirm the diagnosis of laryngopharyngeal reflux. Erythema of the posterior larynx may be seen, and the true vocal cords may be edematous. Treatment should be initiated with a histamine H2 receptor blocker or proton pump inhibitor.
