User:But once again the problem gets started .
Doctor:Let me explain and try to guide you better.
User:ok .
Doctor:Since you have pain in the throat, it sounds more like an inflammation within your throat region.
Doctor:If on examination, by an ENT surgeon, no abnormality is found, you may have to go for certain specific investigations.
Doctor:Investigations such as Barium swallow X-ray of upper gastro intestinal tract or a upper gastro intestinal endoscopy.
User:ok .
Doctor:If an inflammation is found on examination, medication can be taken.
Doctor:For knowing the exact diagnosis and treatment, it is mandatory that you will have to get it examined by an ENT surgeon.
User:one more thing i want to tell you, which might be related to this. When ever i get burb i feel a irritation in the throat .
Doctor:Either it can be an infection within the throat, or it can be an obstruction within the food pipe.
