thanks for your reply. I have a few questions.
1) Could there be an infection while a laryngoscopy
is 'normal'. In other words: does it make sense to try an antibiotic, while the ENT says 'there is no logic in that because the lining of the throat is not inflammated' and 'totally normal'.?
2) The pain started slowly while taking a 3 weeks coarse of ciproxin
for u UTI. Does that relate to having a superinfection
of one sort or another, see also 1)?
3) Yawning, sneezing
and snouting with pressure gives a terrible pain in the larynx
which radiates to the back of my head. Swallowingpain is worsened immediately after yawning, sneezing etc, and then lessens a bit.
4) swallowing food gives more pain than saliva. Food passes well. Pain does radiate to back of head. 2d500mg naproxen
makes the pain a lot better, which I do since yesterday.
5) Fysiotherapist says that all muscles of the larynx, sternocleido etc. are 'hard'. What I'm surprised of that this seems to be a unique diagnosis (I find nothing on the internet on the subject of 'strained muscles larynx' or something like it, certainly not as far as swallow pain is concerned, while it seems to me to be a potentially 'popular' diagnosis.
6) how does the steroid/ab regimen look like?
