Hey, i've had a weird feeling in the back of my throat for last few months. Its like above my throat but below my nose ish.
Its a lump in that feels sticky when swallowing when its dry but still lumpy there when its not dry. Drinking, eating and swallowing are not painful. Dry swallowing is a bit strange- kinda like the feeling u'd imagine when u get spagetti to come out your mouth and nose then swallowing.
It feels like its sitting on that spot that vibrates when you try to hack something up but no matter how hard i try to hack it doesnt come out.
It also is tettering on the edge of being able to swallow it. it also gives me weird, sometimes bad, tastes that stays for ages. Just yesterday i was using basil and its aroma was quite strong a few minutes after leaving it, i could taste a slight basil taste whenever i swallowed or tried to hack.

any info would be great and thanks for your time,
matt

Have you looked at the back of your throat? Are there any white spots on or around your tonsils? If so...could be tonsil stones. Not dangerous, they're a build up of dead cells, food, mucus, debris, that turn into cottage cheese like stones that get caught in the caves of your tonsils. They cause a bad taste in your mouth, a feeling of a dry throat, sometimes making it difficult to speak, an odd sensation of something being caught in the back of your throat when swallowing (but don't seem to feel that way when swallowing food or drink). It kind of feels like a lump in your throat that won't go away, & can cause you to cough, because of the irritation. If you push from the bottom of the tonsil & push up with your finger, you can sometimes dislodge them....they have a consistency almost of sebum that comes out of a pimple or blackhead....sort of hard but when squeezed will break into smaller pieces. They stink like crazy & can be the cause of bad breath. Sometimes gargling with warm salty water can help dislodge or loosen them so you can press them out. They aren't infection & aren't dangerous, but are extremely irritating. Sometimes they can get so large you can almost feel them in the depths of the ear canals, & sometimes they need to be removed by surgery if they're really large. They can't always be seen by looking in the back of your throat, but if you press under the tonsil to open the tonsil cave....sometimes you can't see them until you press below the tonsil, which opens the cave...& then you see a white spot inside the cave...sometimes they're visible just by looking at the back of your throat in a mirror with light.
