It sounds wierd but I have discovered that when I close my mouth and nose and try to force air up my throat
it seems to escape out of this area. There has been minor pain
at times when
swallowing or yawning and sneezing. I have always been afraid to do anything about it or get it looked at by a doctor and it hasn't seemed to get any worse at all, actually seeming better at times, for a long time now. This has been a problem for several years now.
