Feeling pretty lost with doctors help at the moment, so thought I would sign up to this to try and get some advise/insight into my persistent problems, a year ago from now I was having a drink with a date one evening which lead to sexual intercourse, I left her house early hours of the morning to go home and get some sleep, once I got back I hit the deck into bed straight away, 5 minutes later I had a sudden shock, a burning sensation shoot up my throat and down my right ear ? I had a quick glass of water, then went straight to sleep, the next day waking up I had the feeling of a lump sensation in my throat ? and then on my tonsil I had a kind of black spotted mark ? I couldn't seem to take my attention away from it, I remember reaching quite frequently as well at times, a few days later it got to much and I decided to call my doctor, he thought it was acid reflux so gave me omoprozole, I decided not to take these med's after doing some research, so booked an appointment at ENT and had a camera put up my nose, he said there was a tiny bit of irritation and no need for med's, he just said to sort my lifestyle out, looking back now my lifestyle for a good 7 years was pretty shocking, I was drinking most nights, taking a cocktail of street drugs/prescribed Valium etc, with a unhealthy diet, I'm 22 years old now, and I've quit smoking, eat a fully plant based diet,exercise,quit all drugs and alcohol, and this problem is still haunting me but not as bad as the start ? at my age I still want to be a social person going out with friends clubbing etc but I cant, the lump sensation is always there and I also have a rasp in my breath constantly ? another doctor thought it was possibly allergic rhinitis ? I've suffered with allergies in the past, and every morning when I wake up the problem is the worst and my eyes are bloodshot ? my left gland is always swollen, and it does feel a tiny bit painful in my throat sometimes, I found when my diet was unhealthy I would be having a few tonsil stones. But now that's gone since cleaning up my eating habits up, I saw ENT again the other day and he found a lump up my nose which he thinks was a wart but he said its regressing so not to worry about it, I just want to eliminate this problem from my life it really is driving me mad, I'm a singer and have lost a lot in my range of vocals which is driving me even more mad, is it globus ? or allergic rhinitis ? or some acid reflux ? or though I don't get any reflux pain ? or could it be some kind of infection ? from intercourse, I had bloods and they were all fine ? so I just really don't have a clue what is happening.
