The Throat Feels Lumpy And Uncomfortable?
In the afternoon, my name is Mr. Hendra. I want to ask, I often experience a lump in my throat, such as eating or not drinking, dragging. What are the symptoms! Is inflammation / stomach acid rising?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
A lump in the throat may indicate inflammation in the throat. There can be many triggers for this condition, some of the most common examples are:
Habit of breathing through the mouth
Allergies, for example due to inhalation of dust mites, pollen, contact with cold ambient temperatures
Viral or bacterial infection
Irritants, for example from prickling food spines, are inhalation of harmful chemical fumes
Gastric acid reflux, and so on
It could also, a lump in the throat is caused by a mass, either benign or malignant in the throat, for example fibromas, polyps, cysts, carcinoma, and so on.
We suggest that you try to do the following tips first so that complaints get better:
Didn't scream or spit too loudly before
Get in the habit of breathing through your mouth
Use an air humidifier if necessary (to help increase humidity in the environment where you live)
Drink lots of warm water, you can also add honey
Not smoking or chewing tobacco
Increase your intake of vitamin C in your diet, for example by consuming more guava, sprouts, oranges, lemons, strawberries
Also eat foods that do not contain too much oil, artificial sweeteners
Get used to eat regularly, don't delay
Sleep too with discipline
If with the above efforts your complaints still don't get better in 1 to 3 days, or other complaints arise, for example shortness of breath, vomiting, coughing, fever, hoarseness or loss of voice, lumps in the throat, and so on, you should get checked out right away. You go to a doctor or an ENT specialist. Further tests, including laboratory tests, X-rays, ultrasound, etc. may also be recommended by the doctor if deemed necessary.
Hope it helps ..
