Hello! I hope I posted this in the correct category and if not, please excuse my ignorance. During spring, after smoking half a pack of Marlboro Reds in an hour, I started having something like a lump in my throat. I am not sure if it's a lump or not but to keep things simple, we'll leave it this way. I gave up smoking 2 months ago, started vaping 3 months ago. I only vape now but the problem is that the lump is still here inside my throat. Sometimes it goes away by itself, sometimes I cough and it disappears but when I take another puff.. here it is again. Drinking water helps diminishing it but it's really annoying since I have to actively think about swallowing (obviously not all the time) and rarely does food have a hard time passing through. Smoking withdrawal? I don't think so, I had it while being a smoker and I didn't smoke less when I found it. PG allergy? I don't know.. my liquid ratio is 50/50 but cheap liquids seem to really disturb my throat while good ones make it appear when I vape a lot. Cancer? I wouldn't think so, I only smoked for 2 and a half years. I'm 20 now. My mouth tissues are clean, I have no other health related issues. I also had asthmatic bronchitis from 14 to 16 but never had any problems smoking. Any ideas of what could it be? Anybody experiencing/-ed this before? Thanks in advance! PS: I used to smoke 1 pack a day and when rolling tobacco, it would be less than that.
