Question: Hello, I feel an irritation in my throat for weeks


HealthLover - Thu Jun 16, 2005 10:40 pm

I feel this irritation in my throat for about 3 weeks now, my docters say it's mucus stuck in my throat. It all started when I was biting my pencil and it swalled a little piece of the wood. It made the wood flavour in my throat and through out the week I lost the flavour in my throat but it feels like something is stuck in it. My docter gave me pills to help the mucus in my throat. I finished it a week ago and I still have it, How long does it ususally take to recover something like this?

If you feel that something is stuck in your throat, you should see an ENT just to be safe.
