Having a discomfort in my throat. Curious and concerned about what is causing this discomfort?

Hi, I smoke hookah every now and then. But probably have only smoked about 20 times over the past few months. Recently I have been having a discomfort in my throat, almost the surface of the skin just to the left of my throat (the same location one puts their finger to feel their heart beat). Given the fact that I haven't smoked much and I am physically active, I am curious and concerned about what is causing this discomfort. Please advise!

Thanks,

Zach

i think you must be having post nasal drip or acid reflux or both of them THE SINUS INFECTIONS CAN HAVE POST NASAL DRIP WHICH IRRITATES MUCUS OF THROAT AND CAUSE DISCOMFORT
AN AGAIN IN GERD THE ACID COMES UP TO THROAT AND AGAIN CAUSE IRITATION
SO YOU HAVE TO GET DIAGNOSED BY GETTING XRAY PNS DONE AND US ABDOMENT TO DIAGNOSIS
THESE CAN BE TREATED WELL
TILL THEN YOU CAN TAKE METROGYL 200 MG BD
TAB ALLEGRA 120 MG OD
SYP GELUSIL 2 TSF TDS
SYP TOSSEX 1/2 TSF NIGHTR
TAKE METROGYL FOR 5 DAYS AND OTHERS CAN BE CONTINUED LONG
