Hello my name is Natelle. I quit smoking 23 days ago . Starting last Saturday my throat has been hurting. It feels as if there is a lump and I ve been swallowing alot with a little bit of pain. No it doesn t hurt when I eat . But when I go out into the cold my throat tightens, with a lump feel and pain. What can this be and how do I fix it ? I do go to the doctors on November 19th.
