Since the result was negative & doctor told that there is no problem so i didn't go for any further treatment. I am 25 now
Let me brief you.
The throat blocking sensation that you describe can be caused due to few conditions.
First and foremost is local problem. Infection is one such local problem.
But other inflammatory and non inflammatory condition may also be the cause.
Some patients have structural abnormality in the throat such as rings and diverticulum
& what would be that cause doc.
which produce throat blocking sensation.
Smear test rules out some infection; but you still need few more tests to confirm / rule out all other causes.
You should consult an ENT surgeon and a gastroenterologist
and get the necessary tests done.
Have you followed?
Do you have any questions?
Sure I will go for the further test. No more question. Thank you so much doc.
Thanks for consulting me
Bye for now.
