I have been having a feeling like a bubble in my throat for a couple of months...not consistently, but it happens for a couple consecutive days then goes away for about a week.  I did have an issue about 8 months ago taking a prescribed antibiotic that had caused a burning in my throat...being it felt that it may have temporarily lodged there for a couple of hours... since then I have been getting this bubble feeling off and on?
