For the past year I have been dealing with a very sharp pain in the back of my throat. It does not affect eating or drinking, but hurts very much when I talk or swallow dry. I think I have traced the pain to the uluvia area. I have been to 4 different ENT's in the last year, and have tried multiple different treatments. have tried antibiotics, acid refulx medication, changed in diet-drink more water, cut out all alachol. There is nothing to be seen of concern when using the scope looking down my throat. Tests that have been run included 2 MRI's with contrast, CT scan, ultra sound on throat, barium swallow, and swallowing study. Have also been to other DR's, Internal Medicine, Neurologist, and speech Dr. As well as my general practice Dr. Also have tried depression medication with no results. I am also finding that my energy level is very low, I kinda think the energy level could be a mental issue as being in pain everyday constantly does not leave me wanting to do more. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
