I am a 40-year-old male. I am suffering from throat irritations for the last three months. I feel like something got stuck in my throat and I feel like phlegm, but it is not coming out. I am not using pillows when I sleep, if I use pillows I am feeling stiffness in my throat. I have no swallowing difficulties until now. Currently, I have no fever and cough. I have recurrent tonsillitis. If I drink cold water then the next day I will get throat pain. Can you please give me some advice?
