Slightly embarrassed to be asking you guys about such a minor personal matter, but I’m not the first, so here goes:
The base of my throat is uncomfortable. Nearly all the time. The discomfort is on or near the “outside”, not apparently in my throat as such.
In itself it’s not incapacitating, just unpleasant. But I find I can get relief by stretching my throat (moving my head up and back), which makes me look like a weirdo if I do it often, and also can end up giving me neck strain.
So what’s going on? Should I go to the doctor? Any suggestions?
