Throat tightness and congestion. Is there anything I can do for immediate relief ?

Over the past few weeks I have had a feeling like something is tightened around my neck and it is hard to swallow. My head feels foggy and I am somewhat congested. It also feels like there is phlegm in my throat but nothing ever comes out. I started taking prilosec 2 days ago but the problem has not gotten any better. Is there anything I can do for immediate relief ?

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum
This can be a laryngo-pharyngeal reflux, this occurs when there is acid reflux into the throat which cause lots of congestion and irritation in the throat. You need to drink plenty of warm water and continue with Prilosec.
Take care
