Throat Issues-Please Help!
sarahsev88 posted:
Hi I have had these red oval shaped bumps that sort of form lines going vertically down the back of my throat for about 4 months now. My younger brother got them at the same time as well, and went to the doctor for it. The doctor told him it was a viral infection which his body should fight off on its own, which it did for him. Mine however has not gone away and only feels worse. They are a constant bother and though not "painful", they feel very irritated and I feel as if something is constantly stuck in my throat. Sometimes they are so bothersome that I start to gag. Also, sometimes my spit is very frothy since this started. I went to an ent, and he told me that it looks like acid reflux and gave me prilosec, which has not helped at all. I occasionally withing the past month have had some raw feeling further down in my chest area, so I guess thats where he got the Acid Reflux diagnosis from. But I had the throat issue alone for months before, without any other symptoms. Im at a loss as to how to make this go away and to have a doctor listen to me. Please help!
