Hello... I understand your concern.

I need some more information please.

1. Are you able to swallow the saliva or getting any choking feeling?

2. Is there any redness in the throat or pain during swallowing?

3. Was there any pharyngitis in the recent past?

4. Did you eat any exotic or new food or sea food recently?

5. Are you having the sensation of taste please...usually back of the tongue senses the bitter taste better?

Please get back to me with the above information so that I can guide you better.

Kind regards ***** ***** Sumanth Amperayani

Hello. I'm not having any pain. I have not ate anything new. I'm having no bitter taste. I can somewhat swallow the saliva.
Please let me know...are you having any choking feeling while swallowing saliva?

No I'm not
Hello... You for getting back with the necessary information.As you have rightly pointed out this is got nothing to do with the cardiomyopathy.What you say I feel that this could be a simple upper respiratory tract infection or pharyngitis and this could be either bacterial or viral.As of now I would suggest that you do some salt water gargling and if this does not set things right, I would like you to get a rapid Antigen streptococcal test and also a throat swab for culture and sensitivity please.But at the same time if you are having any problem like choking or difficulty in swallowing the saliva please take medical help immediately.It has been hours since your question, how are you feeling now please.Hope I have attended to your query to your satisfaction.
Is there anything else where I can be of assistance to you please.
Kind regards ***** ***** Sumanth Amperayani

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
