Cobblestone Throat Problem What Is It And How Can I Cure It

I have cobblestone throat. What is it? How do I treat it? And what caused it?

Answer

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.

There is information though on how humidifiers can help you sleep. So if the symptoms of your throat problem include a dry throat it may be useful.

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.
