Re: swollen throat but thyroid ultrasound did not show anything

Also, just a stab in the dark---my sister had constant throat clearing and pain/infections. It turned out to be reflux from stomach acids, and she took prilosec, (also pepcid initially) and she felt better within a few weeks.

I hope you figure out what it is and feel better soon.

You bring up an interesting point about acid reflux. As far as I know I've never had heartburn or buring sensation in my throat prior to my current throat problem. It seems like my parents family doctor is accepting new patients so I will be making an appointment with the doctor. Hopefully having a family doctor will get this issue with my throat resolved.
