I've been having this ache at my throat area for a month already. I've done an ultrasound to check the thyroid (it's fine, no lumps or anything) and also a nasal scope to see the throat (it's fine as well).
Other symptoms include stress, anxiety and increased appetite. Also a hoarse voice, random coughing fits, and stomach pains but for now that's all. I'm currently taking a hormone pill (Meliane) but the doctor said it probably has nothing to do with my aching throat.
The aching isn't the same as a sore throat. The aching comes and goes a lot, and the intensity of the pain varies from being mildly uncomfortable to the point where it gets a little intense. I feel the pain even when I'm not swallowing (though I can still feel it when I swallow). I've been told that there's a possibility that the pain can be from the acid from stomach pains, but I highly doubt it, because it's more of a strained-aching feeling than a burning sensation from acid.
Also I don't smoke or drink. I haven't lost any weight either.
