Suffering from throat problem after quit smoking

There is something "wrong" in my throat. It started about 3 months ago, when my kids got strep. I also got a scrip for Amoxicillin, as I had a "sensation" in my throat (figuring I had caught it from them) however the sensation has only gotten worse. I had 2 full Amox scrips that I took as prescribed. The sensations change and move... mostly its a high irritation of my pappilae behind my tongue. Acidic foods and or alcohol seem to agrevate this. Then that calms down and I may feel fine for a while, then I get sensations lower in my throat, like a tightness. Today I woke up and it hurts to breath in, I feel it on my left like in my lungs. Swallowing isnt painfull, but the circumfrance of my throat seems reduced. 2 weeks ago I went to an ENT whos coped me, didnt see anything out of the oridinary. I prescribed a nystatin rinse, which actually seemed to be working, mostly. but 3 days after finishing it, the symptoms flared back up. I went to the Dr again 2 days ago for an extreme tightness in my throat (like someone was choking me around my lower neck) and didnt feel anything odd. What do I do?! lol I am at my wits end, this needs to go away! 

 

I quit smoking cigarettes 2 weeks ago, and I've cut back on my drinking to once a week, 6 drinks. (used to be 3 nights a week)

CONGRTULATIONS FOR QUITTING SMOKING.



PROPER CAUSE OF YOUR INFECTION CAN ONLY BE UNDERSTOOD BY THROAT SWAB CULTURE AND SENSITIVITY TEST,THIS IS VALUABLE NOT ONLY TO IDENTIFY ORGANISM BUT ALSO GETTING SENSETIVE ANTIBIOTICS INSTEAD OF BLIND THERAPY.



WITH COURSE OF ANTIBIOTICS AND ORAL HYGINE PROBLEM GENERALLY DOESN"T RELAPSE.IF YOU NEED TIP TO QUIT ALCHOL WHICH I MUST ADVICE JUST COMMENT.

YOUR ACID SENSATION IS DUE TO HYPERSENSETIVE GASTRIC GLAND CAUSING REFLUX OESOPHAGITIS,

ANTACID GELS ,SOMETIME XYLOCAINE ORAL ANASTHETIC SYR AND DOMPERIDONE IS ENOUGH
