Welcome in H.C.M.

I have gone through your query regarding your throat problem as you said your doctor don't find any abnormality in your throat but you sow some thing in your throat behind your tongue which disappear after some time.

Considering your complaints two possibilities are there-
(1) Dark red colour thing in your throat may be a blood clot and this may be form by mild bleeding at posterior part of nose or upper part of throat.
(2) Ascaris (worm ) completes his life cycle by taking shelter at two places in our body . First part in lungs and second part in intestine. When it passes from lung to G.I.tract it gives some irritation in throat.
To confirm stool examination will be helpful
hope your query is now explained.

With Regards.
