Feeling of obstruction in throat, difficulty in taking deep breath, had smoked hookah. Cause and remedy?

Hi, I only smoked hookah once in my life, which was 2 weeks ago. About a week and a half after smoking it, I felt like something in my throat made or hard for me to take deep breaths. I asked my friends who smoked hookah way more than me and they said they haven t experienced such problems and that I may be over thinking it. What may be my problem and how can I fix it?

Dear nicolelperri

Your problem can be due to enlargement of your tonsils due to the irritants in the hookah. You can use steam inhalation which will soothe your throat and make your breathing easier. if the problem persists you can talk to me whenever you want.

Thank you
