Do you feel as if something is blocking your throat, something like thick mucus. And no matter how hard you try, you just can't seem to swallow it or get rid of it. I may have a few suggestions...

A Lumpy Feeling

Eventually or occasionally, a person may began to feel some sort of lump in their throat. It may seem like mucus stuck in it and they may attempt to cough it up or swallow it down using hot liquid such as tea or soup.
Well, I'll tell you right now, none of these tactics will work. Because first of all, there is nothing stuck in your throat but there may be something wrong with it, especially if you feel that the lumpy feeling has been bothering you for quite some time now, let's say weeks or months, like the way I had been enduring this irritation. Your main problem may be the tonsils in your mouth.

The Tonsils

Yes, the tonsils may be the source of your lumpy irritation.
It may be the one, or both of your tonsils are swollen which may give you the feeling of lumpiness. Don't worry though, this is no aberration. It's perfectly normal for a growing person to experience this once or twice but it is also normal that the person consult their local doctor for this problem rather than just ignoring it or taking it lightly.
When a person grows up, the tonsils may not agree to this and they could resist, that is, swell up.
This in turn may give you the lumpy feeling which also seems to affect your voice box. You may feel that you are unable to emit certain noises such as lacking the power to scream. All that may come out are some hoarse noises followed by minute pain to the throat and maybe some coughing.
As you can see from the picture above, the tonsils on the right have swollen up.

Are There Any Treatments?

The first thing that may come to your mind when it comes to swollen tonsils is removing the tonsils. Well, there are other options.
When I went to my doctor to get my condition checked, he advised that I should avoid cold drinks like Pepsi or Sprite and wrote down a prescription. The picture on the side shows some tablets and a spray called Benzol.
I was inscribed to take in the tablet twice a day and occasionally spray Benzol in my mouth.
I have felt some good differences in my throat but I am far from cure yet.
But this method may not apply to everyone else who have a similar condition. So consult your doctor first.

I have these symptoms for a very long time. I tried a lot and nothing works. Now I'm doing oil pulling and tongue cleaning and it seems to be worse, but I guess it is cleaning my throat. They have taken out my tonsils when I was eighteen, now that's fifty years ago! I should sue these people!

Tonsil removal?!
Well, I was considering that.
You still have those symptoms?
if it's cleaning your throat, then that's exactly what I need. And yes, if you have removed your tonsils five decades ago under reassurance that your problem will be fixed but didn't, then something must be said.
