since the beginning of early summer the lower part of my throat has felt swollen at times. Sometimes worse in the evenings, enough to check it out with the GP - that was in May and at that time she couldn't see anything

August and I had a low platelet drop (ITP which is a condition I sometimes experience). In the past it has been like a pre symptom of ITP

But as time gone on I still have the swollen throat feeling at times and wonderred if it could be due to the brown inhaler - though I use a spacer.

It isn't all the time and whenever I mention it at the GP they cannont see anything. I did have a stone in the salivary Gland this August at the same day of the platelet drop and could it be all connected in some way.

How can I help the GP work out what is happening?
