Sore throat,soreness near uvula,tender painful neck.

I have somewhat of a sore throat , but it is not in my throat it is more at the entrance level before the uvula . It is not a constant pain, but when it starts to hurt it s like a quick stinging-like pain, and then it also hurts briefly to open my mouth to a certain extent. Also, when the brief pain starts, my neck feels tender. Then it goes away and may repeat in a few minutes or in the next hour. What could this possibly be symptoms of?

Hi welcome to health care magic forum,

Sore throat or pain in throat near uvula may be due to a uvulitis (infection of uvula) or an aphthous ulcer .

I would advise you to take plenty of water , avoid keratin containing foods like banana. Take some multi vitamines too.

Wait for 1 or 2 days but if no relief then see an ENT specialist for a proper and thorough examination.
