User :   I have severe pain in my trachea right now. It began last night, and now it is getting worse. I take Pecocet and oxycodone for pain and it is still just getting worse. The rest of my stuff feels fine. The pain just about stops right before the lungs, and begins way back in my throat. What could this be?
