Common Questions and Answers about Lump in throat remedy

lump

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.
Now the worst part of all this in the end is that the problem swallowing has turned into a problem of severe pain when I swallow. It feels like a lump in my throat just under the adams apple. The way I describe it to people is try and swallow a whole egg, it’s the sensation when you swallow something oversized. As soon as any food or liquid including plain water hits the lower part of the esophagus it feels like its ballooning up and stopping at the entrance to my stomach.
) 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.
Now and also then, it feels like I have a lump in my throat. I can actually feel the drainage and has to spit it out regardless of where I am. It is disgusting and I am trying everything, non-meds. My primary tried to prescribe me with meds that had all sorts of wild side affects. I use nasal spray that helps a little. I even tried allergy meds like Claritin-no good. My main lacking step is drinking at least eight glasses of water. I really wants to get rid of this problem.
Painful swallowing is called odynophagia. Difficulty in swallowing is dysphagia. Reflux (GERD) is a common cause. Lump in the throat and extra production of phlegm are other common symptoms of GERD. Your ENT should be well equipped to identify it. Is the pain excruciating, like a charley horse? If so, it sounds like cricopharyngeal spasms. If not, count your blessings.
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!
It will fix the post nasal drip and allow the mucus to get out your nose. THEN move on to the mucus and phlegm in the throat, here is an INSTANT remedy that will work 100%, all the time and it took me a minute to find this one. 1 - Get some Apple Cider Vinegar and mix it with 1/3 Apple Cider Vinegar, 2/3 cold water 2 - Do a gargle then bend over and stay in this position for as long as you can (minimum 3 minutes). Try to bend over and hold your feet.
Some people experience allergy/sinus symptoms in different ways, my congestion happens in the throat, others in the nasal passage and others have watery eyes, needless to say, he prescibed FluNase or FluNose, with Zytec. This really worked for me althugh I used it just during the allergy season, when I experienced the congestion.
And a sneeze bringing me to my knees and forget swallowing after that. My pain is in the same location, left side of my throat. I had an ear, nose and Throat Dr. scope it and saw nothing. I have had this for two weeks now and have no idea what it is.
Starting in December, I noticed after every meal i'd start coughing and it would not go away through the night. Every day it would get worse, it felt like there's something constantly in my throat, like phlegm or something. I'm constantly clearing my throat and trying to cough whatever it is up. Just last night I was in bed and I had a bad burning sensation go up my throat, it tasted horrible. I took an antacid and fell asleep.
I have also been sick with cold (very sore throat and dry, consistent coughing). I have read the possible things this lump might be, but how would one go about treating it? I do not have insurance! How would a swollen lymph node behind the right ear (on the head, where ear meets the head) be treated? Many thanks!
This may or may not be what you have, but hopefully it will help someone. I always felt like something was stuck in my throat or I had a lump in my throat, sometimes left side, sometimes right side. I had trouble swallowing, was afraid to eat at first for fear or choking. I was very terrified for months.
After some searching, I realized that small food particles have been somehow getting stuck somewhere in the back of my throat after I swallow. I did some throat-tensing exercises and began to push the food particles back up, and lo and behold I discovered what was basically a tonsil stone....same consistency and horrible smell resulting from small food particles and bacteria. So, yes...you can develop what is technically a tonsil stone even without your tonsils....
Of course my throat wasn't closing. Sometimes I felt a huge lump in my throat and that scared me...until I actually looked and noticed that it was my uvula touching the back of my tongue. The more you focus on this symptom the worse it gets. Try not to focus on it. I agree with nursegirl. Get the all clear from your doc and start focusing on your anxiety issues. Good luck and keep us posted. For what it's worth that particular symptom vanished for me once I realized that it was common.
My doctor put me on Amoxicillin(sp?) and the underarm lump decreased in size. The lump beneath the arm eventually burst and I treated it with peroxide and neosporin. Although the undarm lump isn't totally gone, it's very small and painless. But the problem is all these other small, uncomfortable bumps that have popped up since. What has kept them at bay is a treatment of mixed Lotrimin and Neosporin. Once in a while I'll clean the area with peroxide.

Is that reflux? Over the past 3 weeks, it might have happened under a dozen times. So probably due to the other problems.
It has helped take away the soreness mostly, but once a month or so I get swelling again, in the throat, lump in throat. I have seen the ENT in October also, and he wanted me to stay on the Nexium, as the redness wasn't entirely healed, and I was still experiencing some symptoms. Tomorrow is my next ENT appt. I will post back after it. In the last 4 weeks I have noticed my right throat gland swollen, consistently, and in the last 3 days my right tonsil tingling and swollen too.

When these things first started happening to me, my doctors & I both focused on the breathing side of things, because of my chronic asthma.
Hi, welcome you all to the forum, this feeling of lump or something there in the throat is known as Globus sensation. This is mainly seen in gastro esophageal reflex disease or hyperplastic tonsil. You should stop taking spicy food, vinegar, alcohol, cigarette smoking if present. A 24hrs gastric pH and urease breath test with upper GI endoscopy will help to substantiate diagnosis. Antacids and proton pump inhibitors will reduce the acidity for which consult a physician.
It began in 1976 and re occurs every 5 to 6 years. I get a sore throat (not tonsils but when you swallow) I now go straight on antibiotics and use Bricanyl inhaler although it doesnt seem to have much effect except to cause alot of mucus coughed up from the lungs. It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out.
i'm sure someone out there can relate. i use to get sore throats, now it just feel like it's a blockage in my throat, i can swallow and eat but you can feel that it is not going down like it should. has anyone experienced this?? i have sinus problems so badthat a lot of time i feel as though i am getting dizzy or in another zone. does anyone experience this?? i just would like to talk with someone who experiences all that i experience may be we can share remedies.
Only thing i have is GERD/LPR with sinsation of lump in throat and a very small irregular heart beat. I also am constantly clearing my throat.I heard that can be because of the Gerd/LPR. I just took a new PFT test and my breathing is normal. i did have a deviated septum but got that fixed..My lung specialist says its just all in my head and that i have this because ive become aware of my breathing pattern. i've used advair, singular and breathing pumps for asthma with no results.
There are times when I am fine and then the next minute I can't even talk because of the lump in my throat. It is killing my career too. I'm in meetings and go to talk and have to cough really hard to even be able to get the words out. I'm 33 and have been dealing with this for at least the last 10 years. I have been to ENT's and Gastro docs and had Endoscopy performed and all they keep telling me is that I have GERD. I have been taking Nexium but don't notice a difference.
Hello, I have a constant lump in my throat sensation. I am 16 years old, male, 142 pounds, 5feet 10 inches, non-smoker, occasional drinker. My own trust in the average doctors abilities, knowledge, methods, and overall competence has been COMPLETELY shaken. So far I have been to two doctors.
I was reading all the post and seen that a warm cloth would help with the pain of the lump in my bikini area. As I read on further I decided to try the warm cloth, i added epson salts to the water and used the wash cloth as a compress. After I had finished reading the other post, I decided that I had held this long enough, when I took the cloth from the lump I noticed that there was a lot of brown puss coming from the lump.
I have a continuous problem with thick mucous in my throat. I must clear my throat a hundred times a day. My larnyx gets so full of the thick mucous that I almost choke and it causes my eyes to water. When this happens I hack up about a quarter cup of the stuff. I went to an ENT specialist who diagnosed sinusitis due to restricted airflow because of a deviated septum. After two surgeries for this there is no improvment. I've tried Musinex and steroid nose sprays. Nothing seems to help.
Neck lymph nodes can be the result of tonsillitis, pharyngitis (infection of upper throat), infection in mouth, caries in tooth, internal ear infection, outer ear infection, eczema, dermatitis, dandruff, breast cancer, fungal infection, other cancers like lymphoma etc. If you had flu like symptoms initially then it could be due to infectious mononucleosis too. The enumerated the possibilities can be investigated or ruled out one by one by your physician and dentist.
My advice to anyone with a lump in that area is to go to the docs straight away. Once an abcess forms, there is no point taking antibiotics as the wall of the abcess doesnt allow them in. But if you start taking them before it fully forms you have a better chance of them working. if nothing works and the pain is getting worse, take a trip to A&E and get it checked out properly. I was admitted within half an hour which is unusual for my local A&E!!!
I have had it for months on and of. I have a lump constanly in the crease of my finger. If I go climbing or carry shopping bags its really painful. So I try to be careful not to put pressure on it to stop the "pop" which is even more excrutiating. Hope someone out there can help.
Please let me know if this sounds familiar to you, especially if you also experience increasing 'brain fog', conflation/reversal of words, prickling of limbs, throat lump, others. I hope to find someone here who shares my symptoms, since I feel alone and scared and can neither post a new question nor pay US$14.95 for the Premium help. (I have already been advised to go to my jurisdiction's hospital's emergency area, but they had too many patients already.
