Feels like something is stuck in my throat

I feel like there is something stuck in my right throat. I have been to the doctors also, but they say there is nothing. I have been in the problem since two years. I dont feel any pain, just feel like something is blocked which i can swallow, but all in vain. I have tried different measures but with a failure.
If any suggestion that would be helpful for me?

Re: Feels like something is stuck in my throat

Have you tried grabbing a mirror and a flashlight and looking in the back of your throat? I used to get that feeling before I had my tonsils removed and it was from tonsil stones. (Yucky little balls of food debris caught in your tonsil crypts) It would feel like I had a piece of food caught in the back of my throat or something. If you look into the back of your throat at your tonsils you might be able to see a little yellow thing (tonsil stone) sticking out of your tonsil.

Re: Feels like something is stuck in my throat

One thing to possibly look at is acid-reflux. I had battled the feeling of something being stuck in the back of my throat (almost like paper or something) and after 3 years a doctor put me on an acid reducer and after three weeks it really helped.

Good luck on finding out the "why."

Re: Feels like something is stuck in my throat

This may seem "out of the box" - but have you had your thyroid checked? Sometimes a "blocked" feeling in your throat could be an enlarged thyroid. Just a thought, may be worth looking into.
