The barn swallow figures prominently in Estonian folklore and culture, and I would love to find poems or folk songs that mention it. Unfortunately, I do not speak the language, and I am stumped over how to proceed. Do you know any Estonian verse about barn swallows, or can you suggest how to start looking?

I noticed the last couple days almost every time a take a sip of water a little goes down the wrong hole into my lungs and makes me cough. What is wrong with me? I should mention I have acid reflux but I have had it for over a year now with nothing like this happening.

For the last several days, I have had the feeling that something is stuck in my throat or the urge to swallow. It lasts for hours and seems to occur after eating. Is this heartburn? Is it something else? [more inside]

There's a weird clicking feeling when I swallow, like cartilage is rubbing up against something. It's not in my throat, it's lower than that. It makes an audible sound (audible to me, anyway). It comes and goes, and that area gets sore. It's been going on for a month now. Any ideas? [more inside]

I have a tickle at the back of my throat, way up high... just where it triggers my gag reflex. It's like I've half-swallowed a hair and it's been bothering me all day. I've tried the usual methods of getting rid of it - drinking lots of water, coughing and clearing my throat (i.e. trying to "hock" it up) and IT'S STILL THERE. Does anyone have any other home remedies for me to try before I give in to my urge to purge? [more inside]
