    Exclamation Feels like I can only swallow down right side of throat

    I've been having this ongoing issue of feeling like I can only swallow down the right side of my throat. It is actually visible when I look in the mirror. I'll drink some water and then swallow, and I can see my Adam's apple go from right to left. However, there is no pain whatsoever and I can't feel anything swollen.

    Furthermore, my left ear feels far more clogged than my right.

    Furthermore, when I breathe deeply, I can only feel the air go into my right ear.

    In summary, I've got a clogged left ear, cannot swallow down the left side of my throat, and cannot breathe deeply in my left lung.

    Any ideas on what may be causing this or how to remedy it?

    Thank you

    Have you seen a doctor?

    I'd suggest you try a nasal lavage (rinse)....the one i use is by NeilMed bottle system that a powder is mixed into water. I use it daily in the morning and have sometimes used it before bedtime depending how bad my sinuses are..

    You might have a sinus infection or eustachian tube issues. Allergies can also cause inflammation in sinuses, ears, eustachian tubes, throat..etc.

    Sometimes reflux can cause inflammation in the throat...

    An ENT can definitely be of help determining what's going on.

    Quincy,

    Thank you for the information. I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow. In the meantime, I'll go ahead and try the neti pot for now.

    Best Regards

    Just wondering what ever happened when you saw a dr? Did you ever get any answers? I had a similar issue.
