I have a hair stuck atthe back of my hroat that has been there for 3 days!!!!

I have tried gargling, drinking, eating, tried to reach with fingers, tried to reach with a toothbrush and nothing is working...has anyone got some advice or own personal tips for removal (trying to avoid throwing up BTW).

I know i will probably have some lewd remarks and i know who most will be from (Archaeobard )

please please help!

Swallow a lurcher that'll shift it.

I had a mate once who was chased by a lurcher - it was after his hair-lip.

If it's troubling you and not shifting then I'd possibly go to the minor injuries unit at the Hallamshire tomorrow and ask them to remove it with some long tweezers, like they do with fish bones.

Try eating something really sticky like treacle that will pick the hair up?

its possible its not a hair at all, you may have scratched your throat .
I once thought i had something stuck in my throat and it was only a scratch and thats why i kept feeling it.

If it is a hair, it may be trapped between a couple of back teeth and dangling down. It's difficult to see why it would still be there otherwise. As others have mentioned, the sensation of a foreign body can be quite false, especially after a scratch from a fish bone for example, or when you have an ulcer. Dental mirrors tend to make one throw-up if you put them in too far, but it's worth a look with a torch, so long as you don't drop it!

Have you seen it? Of course, if you meant 'hare' then follow the same procedure as one would for removing a rabbit!

Just spoke to The_Shark...she managed to get a doctor's appt...they don't think it is a hair but rather related to a rampant ear infection for which she now has antibiotics...all being well it should resolve itself in a few days.

I thought it was unlikely: most hairs that get stuck in-between teeth are short and curly, so unlikely to reach that far down!
