Throat pain swallowing

Common Questions and Answers about Throat pain 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 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.

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 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 n tn Last, while an episode is occurring, the pain seems to feel like a burp or something stuck in the throat. 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.

Avatar f tn I was recently diagnosed with a sinus infection and was prescribed two antibiotics to take; I took the antibiotics for the entirety of the time and was feeling wonderful for a little while, until recently. For about three days or so my throat feels very swollen and it hurts to swallow. It also hurts to chew when eating food and I'm producing excess saliva which is making me swallow more and isn't helping the pain.
Avatar f tn I have had for a few months sharp, severe pain in upper throat on swallowing salad dressing or mayonnaise that has vinegar or fruit juice in it. No other symptoms. I find only supraglotteal cancer listed when I look on the Net for what this can be a symptom of. My ENT doctor had me get a barium swallow (stomach through larynx or most of larynx) which looked normal, and will be doing a more thorough exam (down-through-the-nose tube light, in-office); my mouth looked normal enough.
Avatar f tn I'm experiencing pain when swallowing but not on my throat , the doctor said it was rush on my chest and gave me pills. Currently I'm still experiencing the pain, what exactly is the cause of this?
Avatar m tn It’s unlikely that coughing or gagging can cause a tear in the throat. The pain could be due to the constant coughing causing an inflamed throat. Also, the cause for the constant coughing like a throat infection or a post nasal drip can also cause an inflamed throat and pain. To find a cure you need to consult your primary care physician for proper assessment. In the meantime for relief from your symptoms you could do warm salt gargles and take OTC antihistamines.
Avatar f tn I have been having symptoms that are in the throat only, and wonder what this may be. This has gone on for over a week.

Avatar n tn I have pain in my neck when I swallow, usually when I am just swallowing saliva (a little with food or beverage). The pain is not in my throat, but about half way between my throat and right ear, right under the jaw. There is no swelling. I think there is a problem with my salivary gland there. Is this something that will work it's way better, or do I need to see a doctor?
Avatar n tn I have chronic ear pain and blockage. After a severe ear infection last summer I noticed that I also had intermittant pain on swallowing. When my ear isn't blocked, the pain is hardly noticible but it is driving me crazy. No swollen glands no lumps but it feels like something is "there" in my throat. I have been to three different ENTs.

Avatar n tn Throat pain, difficulty swallowing, fever, scratchiness in the throat, post nasal drip, malaise and loss of appetite are symptoms of tonsillitis. It can be caused by bacteria like streptococcus or it could be a viral infection. Bacterial infections need antibiotics. Your symptoms could also be due to a post nasal drip, which can cause a chronic irritation in the throat. This could be due to a sinus infection, a cold or a chronic allergy.
