I have the feeling that something is stuck in my throat, I am hoarse, labored breathing, a hacking cough for 11 weeks

Please any insight?  I have taken 3 courses of antibiotics, and I get worse.  I haven't had a voice in weeks and I have had the feeling that glass or something sharp is embedded in my lower throat (I know its not glass)  I have also noticed a strange smell in my sinuses.  I do have high blood pressure but it has skyrocketed I went to er and it was 191/136...I am gaining weight and I feel as if my wrists look swollen sometimes.  I was a smoker until a month ago.

It sounds to me like you may have GERD or acid reflux.  I've never had heart burn but I do have GERD.  It started with a bad taste in the back of my throat and a nasty tasting cough.  I could also feel it in my sinuses.  The acid from your stomach can affect your voice as well.  Look up GERD here on WebMD.  It seems like you have quite a few of the symptoms.  Good Luck.
