Hi Last August (2014) I tried smoking a cigarette

Patient : Hi. Last August (2014) I tried smoking a cigarette for the first time with some friends. Initially I was okay, I suppose. Though I did take in too much of the tabacco, as I was unsure of what I was doing. The day after I had the horrible taste/ feeling in my mouth etc. and noticed something hanging in the back of my mouth that I did not think was there before. After having a doctor look at it, he confirmed its totally normal and it's my epiglottis. However, I frequently get this tightness/ sharpness feeling in my throat ( all the way down) area, and it's been happening for a while. I haven't told any doctor I tried smoking before. But when I mention how I get pain there at times, they say it's no big deal probably. I was wondering if this pain/ feeling may be linked to that one time I smoked a cigarette, or if it's just coincidental that it began around the same time. This happens frequently, maybe once a month or so and lasts a few days. Ever since the incident, I believe. It's now June 2015, so it's almost been a year. A little background: since I was a young child, I'm very prone to getting sore throat pain etc and colds. I would appreciate any advice, thank you.
