What is this throat issue?

Asked by pshizzle (1100 points ) February 28th, 2012

Whenever I swallow (naturally) I feel like there is something stuck in the bottom of my throat, like a ball. I am a male if that helps, if it is an Adam’s apple issue.

Do you have acid reflux or post nasal drip issues or allergy issues?

Usually that feeling (swollen throat) is the onset of a virus.

I suggest you rest.

Take a long hot shower. Then take a shot of Nyquil and go to bed early. Stay home from work (or school) tomorrow. Stay in bed.

Sounds a lot like a pharyngeal pouch, otherwise known as a Zenker’s diverticulum. However, there are many causes of difficulty swallowing, or dysphagia. Only a visit to the doctor can help determine the cause.
