Illustration: Throat Sound When Swallowing And Looking Down And Bronchitis?

Good evening, I’m 18 years old Ichsan. So you see, every time I swallow or every time my head is facing downwards, there is always a cracking sound “in the part of my throat. Every time my head is facing down for too long, or my throat makes a cracking sound from swallowing, my throat feels itchy and coughs “. This has been going on for almost a year. I also had a cough with phlegm for about 9 months. After the x-ray, it turned out to be bronchitis. Is it just bronchitis or is it another disease? Thank you ~

Hi Ichsan,

Thank you for asking

A "crack" sound around the neck (throat) when you swallow or lower your head, if it does not appear accompanied by pain, swelling, bruising, or other complaints, it is most likely a normal thing due to the release of air trapped in the joint fluid between the bones back. This condition can also be triggered by the following conditions:

Exercise rarely
The habit of snapping or breaking the neck
Certain medical conditions, such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, osteophytes, history of injuries to the neck or head area, etc.

It is also possible that the crackling sound appears due to other causes, for example:

Jaw joint disorders

Tonsillopharyngitis (inflammation of the throat and tonsils)

Otitis media (inflammation of the middle ear)

GERD (reflux of stomach acid into the esophagus)
Psychosomatic disorders, and so on

Coughing up with phlegm and itching in the throat that you experience due to bronchitis can also be related to this complaint. Bronchitis that is not treated properly, for example due to incomplete treatment, smoking, exposure to allergens or other pollutants, can cause inflammation to spread to the throat and trigger discomfort as you are currently experiencing.

If the complaint feels very disturbing, try to see your doctor directly .. If it is true that the cause is suspected to be related to one of the conditions above, the doctor can also suggest that you undergo laboratory tests, x-rays, endoscopy, laryngoscopy, and so on so that you can determine best handling.

In the meantime, you can do the following tips:

Avoid smoking
Use a mask to avoid pollution, smoke, and other irritating substances
Don't shout too often
Cut down on spicy and oily foods first
Drink more
Also consume more vegetables and fruits that contain lots of vitamin C
If there are certain substances that you are allergic to frequently, avoid exposure to these substances

Hope it helps ..
