OK this feeling in my throat is driving me nuts! What is it from?

I am 16 weeks pregnant and lately I have been feeling like I have something stuck in the very top part of my throat. It comes and goes. Feels like I need to cough or swallow it down!

Makes me crazy and feels horrible!

Any ideas? I wondered if this is mild heartburn??? What do you think? What will help it?

  • maybe you have some food stuck in your tonsil? you could try a warm salt water gargle and see if that helps

  • Heartburn actually feels like a burn. How long has it been going on? It doesn't sound like any pregnancy symptom I know of. Might want to have it checked out. You might have a sore throat or sinus drainage.

  • It sounds like how my throat feels every time I get sick. Are you sure you aren't coming down with a cold or anything?
