A clinical evaluation by an ENT specialist is needed.

Detailed Answer:


Thanks for writing your query.

After reading your post, I would suggest that you should get yourself clinically examined and investigated by an ENT specialist.
Anti inflammatory like Ibuprofen along with serratiopeptidase and an antacid will help in relieving your symptoms.

Warm saline gargles will have added benefits.

I hope this is helpful to you.
