Throat pain during swallowing

Common Questions and Answers about Throat pain during swallowing


Avatar n tn I had a colonoscopy four days ago and the anesthesiologist told me I would be given Propofol to sedate me and only if there were problems there was a chance that I might be intubated which might chip my teeth. I was positioned on my left side and instructed to bring my knees up to my chest. She then put a mask over my nose and mouth. I woke up with the worst sore throat of my life. My throat was blood red and it hurt to talk, cough, breath and swallow.
Avatar n tn Trying to encourage a burp to release some of the pressure/pain can cause the swallowing reflex, intensifying the episode with more pain and gagging. During these episodes, I can not burp in the normal manner. It is as if what ever is going on in my throat also affects the proper functioning of a burp. I am guessing there is some sort of conflict with my throat and the texture/chemical composition of the typically involved foods.
Avatar n tn i am 10weeks pregnant and i have pain in the throat during swallowing which medicine should i take
Avatar n tn Hi, I have back throat pain since few days. There was also some blood in the sputum (in the morning). The pain is not too much, but hurts while swallowing. No cough, no cold. I snore a lot during sleep. What can be the causes?
Avatar m tn Hi yes, here i am, another hypochondriac really worried about having throat cancer and why not? thanks to Dr. google, you write swallowing pain and you get throat cancer, then you try to find other symptoms in yourself and off course you get them (thanks to your brain). i want some counseling and mental relief from a professional ENT about the following. Three weeks back i joined the gym and started on a 5 meal balanced diet.
Avatar f tn I am producing a lot of saliva but I spit it out because it hurts to swallow. I am also coughing up mucous. The pain is located lower in the back of my throat, in my neck area. It looks red and splotchy. This is my third week of throat related illness. The first week I lost my voice but had no other symptoms. Last week I had a terrible cough and was coughing up solid, green phlegm. And now this week I have the symptoms above. What is going on with me??? What can I do to get better?
Avatar n tn I should also mention that when this lump occurs, when i am originally swallowing during my meal i have a hard time swallowing, this then results in this lump. I hope i explained this well. Have a Good Day!!! ------- and thank-you for taking the time to answer me.
Avatar m tn Ear ache (gone today), Throbing pain for a couple of mins in neck, ache in jaw, kind of a heavyness of the throat, once or twice ive had pain swallowing.
Avatar m tn This was there for one hour. Since then when I eat or drink there is mild pain in throat. Now I feel like there is something heavy in throat. Some times mild itching. Mild cough. While swallowing Its paining at some points of throat, there is some difficulty swallowing. I had tabs for two days prescribed by doctor. Two anti biotics , B complex tabs, other two tabs related to pain(I ll post them once I see prescription).
Avatar n tn It is not unusual for an infected throat to be accompanied by pain with swallowing but actual “difficulty swallowing” is uncommon, especially if it is accompanied by choking and/or cough when swallowing liquids or solid food. It would be uncommon for throat cancer to have what sounds like a sudden onset; the rapid onset more consistent with infection, including concern about the possibility of infection of the epiglottis.

Dear Kim, Some patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease have the feeling of a lump in the throat without a mechanical cause for the difficulty in swallowing. This is called globus sensation.
Avatar n tn I feel pain in the right side of my throat which occur suddenly and at that time I feel also pain during swallowing. But it goes spontaneously. Recently I swallow raw garlic for its beneficial effect. Is this the reason? or what might be? I am really worried. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/230865'>Lower right side throat pain</a>.
Avatar f tn I have had the problem of swallowing my food part, and I have had pain in my chest when I do. I also have problems with choking on my food. I have even had problem just swallowing my own saliva, but now that I think about it I have never told my neuro about it. Guess that is something I should write down to mention to him. There are so many symptoms to keep track of and I can't even remember what I had for breakfast much less what has happened to me in the month since my visit to him.
Avatar m tn Not all the time, and only when I was only swallowing spit. Thought it was weird. Now, during the next 2 weeks its gotten worse. Its mainly my right side of my neck. The lymph node right under my cheek/jaw feels a little swollen. I still have this lum swallow that I can hear or feel popping when I swallow spit. My throat is a very little sore. Very little. My tongue, especially on the right side will get a weird sensation of tingling or fullness or numbness (not sure which).
1173247 tn?1504594662 Local infections/ inflammations in the throat can also cause the pain. A constant post nasal drip can irritate the throat and cause discomfort with swallowing. The results of the study should help to rule out most of the above mentioned causes. Good Luck. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn t really feel any swelling in my throat but I keep feeling I have a lump in my throat. Like something is stuck in it and if I touch my throat area I will keep this feeling for hours. Is this thyroid or something else?
1218041 tn?1310337812 ve been having problems swallowing anything, when i swallow it feels like i have a ball stuck in my throat and it hurts all the way down to my chest. The pain is very distracting, it makes me not want to eat. Any idea what i might be?
Avatar f tn When i visited him again he noticed that the swelling got better but i mentioned that i had some pain on the right side of my throat, mostly when swallowing(slight pain). He prescribed antibiotics which didn't make much of a difference(I believe it was Fluconazole). So, 3 months after, i have some sense of a tight throat and a little bit of throat pain that seems to get a little stronger at night and gets better during the day.
Avatar n tn s it kind of feels like a stomach Flu, and the pain sometimes subsides with a bowel movement, my throat has a constant feeling of restriction or tightness, I do not have any heart pain and my voice is normal, i recently seeing a throat specialist and now being referred to a gastronologist in November.
Avatar m tn In the initial stages, i could feel a little pain while swallowing although no difficulty swallowing. The pain was only 1/10. The irritation was localized to the left upper portion of the throat. I did consult a ENT doctor, who treated this with antibiotics. It was diagnosed as uvulopharyngitis (not sure if it is uvulopharyngitis or uvulolaryngitis).
Avatar f tn I feel no chest pain no groin pain, heart feels a little agitated but what bothers me the most is horrible, unbearable pain in my throat that runs up to my ear; I can barely swallow (couldn't even take pills for pain), I can't eat, I can't talk and even drinking warm water is painful. I am desperate, I thought sleeping would make it better but it didn't. I was in tears until 12am, I am desperate and all they can say it was the probe and it will go away.
Avatar n tn Excess, but slowly accumulating somewhere in the back of your throat or adjacent to the epiglottis (the structure that closes off the windpipe during swallowing so that it doesn’t trip the swallowing reflex). Probably within the range of normality but for some reason you seem to have developed an increased awareness of it.
