Extreme sore throat,cough and chest pain while swallowing

I have been on and off sick for about 2 months now. I have an extremely sore throat , so bad to the point that I can t eat for days. My throat swells up and I have white sores all over the back of my throat. I have been to 3 different doctors and it s not strep or mono or any other type of bacterial infection . On top of this about 4 weeks ago I developed a cough, which I originally thought that maybe it was allergies but now I have pain in my chest when I swallow or cough and I have the taste of mucus and copper when I cough.

Since you are suffering for last 3 months, you need to undergo detail evaluation. Chronic diseases like TB needs to be ruled out. White spots in the throat may be chronic bacterial infection or fungal infection. A routine blood test, sputum test, HIV test and a xray chest should be done.
