feel like popcorn kernel stuck in throat?
« on: August 21, 2014, 01:11:32 PM »
But I haven't had popcorn. Its on and off. I had it last night then it went away and wasn't there when I woke up. Nownirs back. it feels like its more in one side and at the tip of my throat. It feels tiny or something.
I have acid reflux bad lately, doctors have checked out my nodes, glands, throat etc and blood tests (many of them are perfect.
Is this anxiety, acid reflux etc? Anyone have it before?

Sounds like a tonsil stone stuck in your tonsil! Always get them google it. Nothing serious!

I usually look at my tonsils with hue flash on my phone in the mirror and can see one lurking! They usually come out on their own or gargle that might help. Googling tonsil stones won't bring up anything scary or bad!! It's just food residue I think.

You'll just have to ignore it. I know how intensely annoying it is, but it'll work itself out.

I have LPR (a form of acid reflux) - when it flares up, I feel stuff in my throat, too. It's either a globus (totally benign muscle reaction to the throat irritation) or lymphoid tissue flaring up. Both conditions are benign.  Treat your acid reflux and it will go away.

Thank you all of you, I hope its any of that. It isn't even noticeable all the time. Like right now, its not as noticeable as before.

I'm just afraid its something more sinister...idk what..

What I do know is I've had this feeling before.

That sounds exactly like a tonsil stone to me.

I get them all the time - in fact I have one right now that won't come out.

This.  Often anxious people have reflux...and reflux gives all sorts of sensations.  I get the foreign body sensation in the throat often because I also have LPR.

I third the LPR. I have it too and one of my very first symptoms (which, incidentally, coincided with my very first bout of HA) was the popcorn-kernel sensation. I actually made the back of my tongue bleed digging around with my fingernail to try and dig out whatever was stuck there. But of course, it was nothing - just acid reflux! Really annoying, but totally harmless.

Sounds like a tonsil stone.  When they get bigger they feel exactly like you are saying.  What I do is bring my shoulder up real hard to my neck and take the side of my tongue and rub it on my bottom teeth (very hard to describe!) and try to PRESS it out.  It usually works.  Sometimes I have to do it on and off for a few days.

I've had that same feeling on and off for a few months now. My doctor says it's mucous drainage when I describe the feeling that something is "stuck" in my throat.
