Has anyone gotten throat polyps before? I woke up Friday feeling like I had something stuck in my throat, like a grape seed. It never went away, and Saturday the feeling was worse, so I got a flashlight and discovered that I have a long polyp or skin tag or something sticking straight out from my right tonsil that is hitting my uvula!
I sent a message to my GI. I'm not sure if this is a PCP thing, an ENT, or my GI. I've had strictures in the past, but this is ridiculous. And it wasn't there two weeks ago when I saw my PCP because my ears had been feeling half-clogged for months (turns out they were infected and a week of steroid drops fixed everything).
My BIL is in medical school, so I sent him some pictures. He thinks it's a skin tag on top of a polyp. My throat has been sore, but that comes and goes due to Remicade. I now this morning have some white gunk on both tonsils that look like really large tonsil stones.
But there's also a chance that it's a fistula from the nasal cavity or something, he said. I've been getting some mouth sores over the last several weeks on my tongue.
Some days I'm just so fed up with my body doing weird things that stress me out.
