Hello, my name is Justin and for one year I have had a swelling on the RIGHT side of my larynx. When i swallow it clicks up against something and is very annoying. The right side is soarer and much more sensitive than the left. I also have ear pressure on the right side that seems to be related to how badly the neck is doing. I have been to three doctors, gotten numerous anti-biotics, nothing helps. Now my jaw and teeth on the right side of my body are starting to hurt, it feels like it's spreading, I have no idea what this could be.

The doctors said it was not cancer and gave me a scope down to my voice box and said it looked good. I have lived with this for a year and have just about had it. I never feel normal and it has surprisingly effected the quality of my life.

I have had some small white bumps on the toncils that come and go, a bit inflammed but nothing big. This problem developed after two events: I got some dental fillings, then I came down with a big infection that swelled my toncils, then I got the thing in the throat. I was also involved in a car accident a few months before this problem appeared.

As you can see the origin could be one of many things. I just want to know if anyone else has these symptoms. A large bump on the larynx that moves up when you swallow and clicks, ear, teeth pressure etc.

Also the muscles around the right side of the neck are much soarer, there also tends to be a strange sensation around the entire right side of the body as compared to the left. Ugh, it's aweful.

Not only do I need to know that I'm not alone, but I'd be SO THRILLED if anyone has gone through this and cured it or gotten help. I tried to be as specific as possible, thanks so much to anyone that can help.

  • What are your other symptoms?How is your diet?When was the last time you got a vaccine?You are very toxic and your immune system is acting up. Stupid regular infections are debilitating you.You have M.E. , toxic overload, whatever you choose to call it. Do you have mercury fillings?Would you consult a Naturopath? I don't think you need to remove the fillings, but just need a special diet to flush toxins- start by cutting sugars and processed food.Yeah- tell us what you eat/

  • My one sided sore throat is likely due to reflux. I get the "lump in the throat" feeling too. When my ENT scoped my voicebox he said it was a little swollen. I'm on nexium 20mg per day and hopefully going for a 24 hour pH monitoring study to tell if I really do have reflux to see if I really need to continue the nexium.

  • Hello! I honestly have been having the same problem for about 1-2 months. I was told by our Urgent Care Doctors that I had an outer ear infection and was given ear drops and an antibotic, 8 days later it was still bothering me and I went back to the Urgent care and another doctor said it was not clearing up and gave me another antibiotic. Today is day 9 and my ear hurts, throat feels like there is a bubble in it and my ear pops, throat clicks,etc. I called my regular doctor and they are so booked they can not see me for 4 weeks. THis is driving me crazy!!

  • I have pressure on the right side of my throat and eustachian tube of my ear. The doctors have stuck instruments down my nose and in my ear and say that they see nothing. They have tested my blood and everything checks out okay. This has effected my quality of life as well. I don't know what it is, but it is very annoying; however, I feel no pain or tenderness, only a pressure sensation on my throat and inner ear. I have a strange sensation on the right side of my throat and down into my lungs sometimes when I swallow. This has been going on for about 4 months now. I have had a breast implant bust around the same time that this started happening, but it is saline water so I have been told that this should no matter. I have also had weight loss, but I am still breastfeeding, so that may be contributory. Please tell me what you have found out with yourself. Maybe you can help me. When this started for you did it start out with soars in your throat?
