Pain when swallowing, throat tightness, coughing phlegm. Taking Advair for asthma

I have pain in the left side of my throat when I swallow (not all the time but off and on) for the past few days and I felt a small moveable lump on the left side of my throat last night. I can t always feel it when I try to locate it. It affects my talking sometimes, too, as my throat tightens and I feel like I m straining to speak. I am coughing up quite a bit of phlegm but usually do due to ongoing sinus issues/allergies. I have been doing a juice cleanse the past three days (am done now) and recently introduced Claritin D into my daily health routine to combat the allergies. I also take Advair and Singulair for asthma. For years I have battled with a psychosomatic fear of choking that is manageable but under stress can get very bad and when this started I thought it was just that but now I m not sure.

CLERITIN D IS A BAD COMBINATION AS IT DECONGESTS AND DRIES UP THE TRACT OF OROPHARYNX AND LOWER TRACTS
THS CAUSES THE PROBLEMS WRITTEN BY YOU
REMOVE THE DECONGESTANT
ONLY ADD FEXOFENADINE
AND ANTACIDS AND TAKE WARM WATER TO RECOVER
THIS WILL COMBAT YOUR ALLERGIES AND SYMPTOMPS ALSO
