Weekend off with a lump in my throat
In the last few days, I have seen 4 patients with a feeling of something in their throat all the time. This may not be you, but think of silent (nonacid) gastric reflux. This was the problem for these 4 individuals who had symptoms lasting up to 5 years! My ENT colleague can look down into the throat with a flexible endoscope, and the diagnosis can be made in minutes. This may not apply to you so please don't consider this as specific medical advice. I"ll be back on Monday. Have a great weekend!
