Over the last two weeks, I have been dealing with a weird fleeting burning sensation in my throat. Three weeks ago, I was working in construction and was exposed to a lot of fiberglass and dust that made me cough hard at times. I began to start wearing a mask, but following that, I had a lump in my throat for a little while. One week later, I had the feeling of a burning sensation in my throat. On a scale of one to ten, I would say one or two. It went away, along with a lump feeling in the throat. Three days later, I went and had my teeth cleaned in the morning. Six hours later, the throat discomfort was the worse it has been (burning and lump still two to ten on the pain scale). I tried drinking a lot of water and Alka Seltzer, thinking it was acid reflux. My height is 6 foot 2, and my weight is198 lbs, and I eat fairly healthy. And am very active. I figured this was maybe caused by drinking red bull. However, the next day I looked at my tongue, and it had a greenish look to it in the very back. From Friday to Monday, I ate only celery, watermelon, and rice and took Rolaids and Pepcid. They did not really blunt it like I read they should. I figured I had a severe case of LPR. But last night, I decided to take two Advil. After taking Advil, all my symptoms had gone away. I even enjoyed a ground beef taco with no repercussions. Today I feel fine as I kept taking Advil. I still have a twinge of burning feeling but no lump or throat soreness. Is it possible my throat was irritated from insulation? I do live in a very hot city, 102 to 107 F, all summer with dry air. We have bad air quality and a lot of dust and allergies, which I use inhaler and Montekulast hear around. I just started back up the Montekulast. I am not sure if this is still a potential case of LPR or more with where I live and possible irritation. Also, I am a 25-year-old male. I do not smoke, and I drink very little. Kindly help me.
