Hello,

Possible causes for recurrent throat infection may be due
1. Postnasal discharge.
2. Polyps.
3. Immunosuppression.
4. Tonsillitis etcetera.
Until examination, it is difficult to say what it is. Avoid drinking of contaminated water, water vapor inhalation and salt water gargling thrice a day. Check for allergen cause throat infection. Please consult your doctor he will examine and treat you accordingly.



Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

For years Ive been bloated, gassy and cramped. I cant gain weight. I wake up with gas and bad taste in my mouth. I have no sinus infections but I always have bad breath ( I brush and floss daily). Ive done almost every test possible and there all clear. My doctor says its IBS and there's nothing he can do, to help (which I find hard to believe). Im a 43 yr old male 5' 11" and 140lbs.
I calculated my diet at approx. 2800-3000 calories a day. My job is not physically demanding and Ive stopped weight training.
Any help would be just great, thanks.
