    Upper Throat Problem

    Alright, trying to keep it short and sweet.

    I was away for New Years, and the hotel I stayed at was extremely dry, even for winter, expectedly my sinuses got very irritated. After I got home I came down with a "cold" about 2 days later, but it was odd in that the irritation, a real burning, was localized to the back of my sinuses in the upper throat around the eustachian tube area on the right side only. I was put on antibiotics after I went into my docs office and said it was a sinus infection (which I thought it was at the time), but they did nothing, and it just cleared up on its own about a week later.

    Since then I've had this on and off irritation and discomfort (almost like an itch) in the same spot, back right sinuses in the upper throat. It's also felt like my eustachian tube on the right side is irritated, and I get a lot of instances of swooshing, and what sounds like it clearing out, but I never get a real ear ache, and theres no fluid build up in the ear anytime they check.

    I came down with the exact same "cold" like thing about 3-4 weeks ago with the exact same outcome. Same burning in the spot thats usually slightly irritated, all of which cleared up in about a week after it started. I put cold in quotations both times, because it doesn't seem to be an actual contagious infection I caught. There's no explanation for how I could have come down with something, and more importantly my mother, who I currently live with, suffers from Rheumatoid Arthritis and never caught either of them (she catches anything I ever bring into the house with her weakened immune system). Since then it's been more of the same. The slightly irritated, almost itchy feeling in the same localized spot on the right side.

    I'm wondering if anyone has experienced anything like this? And if they've found a way to deal with it and clear it up. I'm not sure if it's an infection spot, or it's just been irritated or dried and opened up to the point my body is treating it similarly. It's difficult to try to do anything about it, as it's not an easy area to get to with rinses or the like.

    Edit: Also, I'm not sure if it's related or worth mentioning, but I find I often wake up with a really bad taste in my mouth. Not sour or bitter like acid reflux, just an overly foul taste even for the morning.

    Any info or ideas is much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,

    Re: Upper Throat Problem

    Also, I just made the connection. Last fall I had a few days of really bad sharp allergy like irritation in the same spot and my nostril was like a faucet during the time, but it disappeared seemingly for no reason (as did it show up).

    I'm really convinced something is going on back there, but I don't know how to know or do anything about it. I've been to my ENT and he did a CT Scan and told me I didn't suffer from sinusitis, end of story.

    Could it be fungal?
