Hi, I am having severe throat pain for over a month. Its continuos and only at the time of swallowing . My primary care physician and a ent specialist both could not see any infection. Strep test came out negative as well. 3 different antibiotic treatments also didnt help. Please help and let me know what else could I do to get to the bottom of this and get better.
