2. Dry Throat

It’s not only our mouth that is moistened by saliva. Our esophagus is also, and this includes at the back of the throat. This can result in an uncomfortable dry sensation at the back of the throat and, depending on the condition, simply having a drink may not be enough to deal with the problem.

In addition to feeling dry, the patient can also find that the back of their throat feels hoarse, and this might affect their voice. In most cases, simply having a drink will be enough to moisten the throat again. If there is an underlying medical cause, however, then simply having a drink is unlikely to suffice.
