I've been having this weird thing in my throat for weeks. It has been around but it never seem so obvious to me until a few weeks back. I've been thinking that I'm just having some sore throat with phlegm stuck at my throat. I expected it to be gone in a few days or a week or 2. However, up till now, I'm still having that weird thing at my throat.
 
I tend to swallow my saliva or drink lots of water, trying to swallow it. But it just won't be gone. I tried coughing it out, but all I get is saliva. I sometimes feels as though it's out, but in the end, I just can't get it out.
 
Hence, I'm wondering if this is what you call 'a lump stuck at the throat' or phlegm that I just can't get rid off.

I can't speak to your situation but in my case my main symptom is the uncomfortable sense of having a pill caught in my throat. It started within 30 mins of my taking a Fosamax, according to package instructions, back in January. My doc calls it "pill esophogitis" - an irritation of my throat, but they won't know for sure until my endoscopy. I'd say after 3 weeks of this that you should call your doc and see if they prescribe something or try you on a GERD diet. Good luck. Hope it goes away.

Thanks a lot. I'm seeing the doctor tomorrow about something else and I'll bring that up too. (:
