Forum Name: Ear Nose and Throat

Question: Lump in my throat

jilloo - Sun May 07, 2006 3:44 am

I have a lump in my throat and I don't have any problem in swallowing but while I tried to lay flat, then I feel like throwing-up and feel like something is struck inmy throat. This problem persists for past 2 weeks.. My ayurvedic doctor told me to have ginger-honey juice in empty stomach. But that even does'nt work. I'm afraid, I don't smoke, or have non-vegs. Pls help me.....

Dear jilloo,

What do you mean by "ayurvedic" doctor?

Did your doctor really see a lump in your throat or this is just your sensation?

Thank you very much for using our website http://doctorslounge. com and waiting for your answers.

Dear jiloo,
Hello, you need a consultation from an ENT specialist. sometimes throat infection can present as a lump in the throat. some times even gastro esophageal reflux disease can present as a lump in the throat. Go to an ENT specialist
