a cure for a burning throat?

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
hey all.

i am wondering if anyone knows a good cure for a burning throa.

let me try and explain.. i'm all right, and all of a sudden for like a few seconds, there is a burning sensation in my throat like fire, then it goes away for a while, then comes back for another few seconds.

k.. i'm useless at explaining. may as well admit it.

:banghead:

it happens to me sometimes, and sometimes it goes away after a few hours.

it hits me at the worst of times though, usually if i'm going to sleep or if i'm out somewhere.

anything i can do to make it go away quicker?

thanks

    try looking up "acid reflux" and seeing if that matches your symptoms

    Hi Avatar Of Agony,

    Sorry to hear about the burning sensation you get in your throat, it sound's uncomfortable. If it does feel like a stomach acid sort of 'burn' then perhaps drinking some milk or water or chewing the anti-acid tablets that are out there will help?

    You could also talk to someone at NHS direct 0845 46 47 and describe the symptoms and see if they can offer any advice. Other than that, you may want to go and see your GP - see if they can shed any light for you?

    Hope you feel better soon - take care
