I have been suffering from Granular Pharyngitis since few years. I always feel my throat heavy due to cough and have to clear my throat constantly. Also, it makes talking very difficult sometimes and has caused my voice to become hoarse permanently. The problem was never identified completely until recently when I went to a local ENT specialist. I am hoping to get a second opinion about this since the first doctor wasn't really helpful. Please advice.
