So i went to get my throat seen by an ENT yesterday and he told me that my throat "wall" looked raw and was prescribed Omeprazole dr 40 mg capsule for 3 months. Another thing is i don't know if he noticed my soft palate because it feels rough. I don't have any symptoms besides discomfort swallowing my saliva. My next appointment is on December.

Thanks for the update. The ENT apparently felt this was caused by pharyngeal reflux. I hope the medication helps.
