i already asked this question of someone else, but can i ask you now?
Sure but what's the question?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

i think i have this weird sensation in my throat. i think it feels that it's burning. and itchy. i don't think i am out of breath though. and when i take a deep breath it feels fine. but, i am paranoid that this could be something wrong with my lungs or something.

OK--how long has this been going on? How long does the sensation last?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

few days now.

it's kinda constant thing.

sometimes it feels like it's at the bottom of the throat and sometimes it feels like it's at the top and also when i breathe in through the nose.

Any problem with indigestion or with a stuffy or runny nose?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

constant runny nose. and also ears are hurting and throat itching.


OK--this sounds like probable post nasal drip from either an allergy or maybe from a sinus infection but certainly nothing to do with your lungs and nothing very serious. If it persists beyond another three days you should have a doctor look at you since you could need antibiotics

even though sometimes it's all the way at the bottom of the throat, which is upper upper chest area?

Still just post nasal drip--this kind of symptom doesn't come from the lungs
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

ok. thank you.

so, my nose is running every single day when i wake up and also, i sneeze quite a bit every morning. and then it stops, after a while.

Try some Claritin or Zyrtec for the next few days since that might clear this up
