For about five days now, I have this sensation of a pill stuck in the throat right below Adam's apple. There is no pain at all. It is not there in the morning but will show up throughout the day. I can eat and swallow without any problem, and it seems to go away when I eat. It is not quite as bad as the first three days. I did go to urgent care, and the doctor looked at the back of my throat, checked ears, breathing, and checked for swollen nodes and thyroid and said all felt normal. I did explain to him that I have had constant drainage down the back of my throat. There is no runny nose, but stuffy with occasional pain in head and eyes. I said it was probably inflammation in my throat. I notice that the bottom of the throat will get dry and that it is when it is the worst. He gave me Amoxicillin and some liquid allergy medicine to help break up the congestion. I do also have acid reflux. I have been taking 150 mg of Zantac twice a day since then. What are your thoughts on this?

I noticed that with Zantac I still had some reflux. Will the above measures help with the constant running of mucus down the back of the throat? I am assuming post-nasal drip. How long should I take these medicines? Should I continue the tablet and liquid for acid from now on?
