I haven't been able to find any medical references to cobblestone throat.  I found people referring to it on several forums and most say it's caused by nasal drainage and is nothing serious.  One person said it can also be caused by breathing in dry air when you sleep and could be helped by sleeping with a humidifier in the room.  Since I'm not familiar with it, I can't vouch for any of that information.  


If your doctor gave you that diagnosis, then he should tell you what to do about it.  If not, I'd suggest seeing a doctor just to make sure it's not a symptom of something else.

I was recently told that I have cobblestones in my throat.  Mine has been said to have been caused by acid reflux.  Three different doctors have said the same thing.  I am currently using a twist-haler at night, omeprezole twice a day as well as 150mg Zantac at night.  So far so good.  If this does not work, they say that is the last resort for medicinal's probably surgery time.
