Patient :My throat has felt tight for the past two days and is not painfully but annoying. I feel a need to swallow repeatiently every so often. Drinking water can satifsfy it for a short time. It is very uncomfortable and I am not on any medications. What do you think it might be and what might I do to relive the syntoms, and is there a possiblitiy that this could be dangerous?
Symptoms: Swollen throat, uncomfortable, small lump near Addams apple, dry, feel like swallowing often
Read and understood your history of feeling tight and annoying in the throat, need to swallow repeatedly, drinking water satisfies for a short period.
This could be due to pharyngitis causing the minor salivary glands not working properly, causing the dryness, needing to swallow water again and again.
I would advise you to consult a Doctor for examination and get a clinical evaluation for proper treatment.
Complete the courses.
Wishing you the best of health.
