I have some visible epiglottis sticking up at the back of my throat. Can online doctor help me?

Hi, I am a 20yr old female and recently I ve been having trouble with my epiglottis. About 2 weeks ago I looked down my throat with a torch because a could feel something in the back of my throat when I swallowed. When I looked down there I could see my epiglottis sticking up at the back of my throat (im 100% certain its my epiglottis) Sometimes during the day it goes down and I can t feel it but other times, normally in the evenings I can really feel it and it s really uncomfortable when I swallow. I m getting really worried about it and just wondered if any one else has this or knows what is and will it ever go away?

ENT Specialist Dr. Sumit Bhatti's  Response
This is a normal. The epiglottis is visible in many normal people. If you want to investigate your discomfort further, get a video laryngoscopy done to check the throat and larynx. A Barium Swallow Study may also be done. Get your hemoglobin levels checked. If these are normal, only medication may be required to relieve your discomfort.
