For over a week now I've had this strange sensation in my throat, as if I've swallowed a mint or mouthwash. I went doctor's about it the other day and he said he couldn't see any redness or infection, and I suggested could it be acid, he said it's unlikely but to try gaviscon..so far it hasn't made any difference. I just wondered if anybody else has had this?

I don't know the answer but was curious so I Googled it and found it's quite a common problem. No definitive answer though. It seems the problem can be caused by anything from a loose filling to snogging Des Lynam.

It's quite the mystery! I mean it's not painful or anything, more irritating and such a strange feeling. I also googled it just now (I thought I'd avoid doing that in the first instance as I google symptoms all the time and I don't usually like some of the results!) and you're right, I did see some people describing exactly the same feeling, but yeah, no definitive answer. Oh well, see how it goes..thanks for looking it up anyway!
