Help: New Symptom-Swollen Throat

nad2134nad2134 Member New Member
Has anyone experienced a "swollen throat" sensation, where it hurts to swallow, yawn, and do simple things that involve what I think is the esophagus? I've gone to two ENTs, but I didn't receive an actual answer as to what's causing the "dysphagia." I have a strong feeling it is inflammation because when I double up on prednisone and Advil, the symptom is quelled. 
Please let me know if you have any ideas. I'm in pain and desperate.

    I've had lupus for 37 years & a few ties I've had that same feeling. When I went to my PCM I didn't really get an answer. And of course by the time I saw my rheumatologist the feeling was gone. So she couldn't help. I have no idea what the problem is but you are not alone in feeling it. Wish I could help more.
