Suggest treatment for sore throat
Seems like separate entities and need to be dealt separately
Hi! Welcome to health care magic! Thanks for sharing your concerns. Hope I can be of any help.
Based on the history you have shared, these seem to be separate entities and need to be dealt separately.
For sore throat, which has become so chronic and haven't affected your voice, can be due to pharyngitis or tonsillitis because sparing vocal cords or larynx rules out laryngitis. I usually treat such patients in my clinic with course of antibiotics like augmentin or azithromycin, if signs of inflammation are evident on detailed throat examination. I would also suggest you to discuss with your GP regarding using anti histamines like cetrizine and anti inflammatory drugs like acetaminophen or ibuprofen. Gargles with XXXXXXX warm saline water will also help.
The occipital headaches or strains and back of neck going down, can be due to the stress you have mentioned. Try to complete adequate cycles of sleep and avoid continous exposure to computer or TV screens. During work, taking few minutes break with eyes closed, and setting you free from all thoughts for a while will refresh you. Try to take few deep breaths in fresh air for a while, in between lectures, and you will feel the difference. After teaching hours, try to indulge in recreational activities and hanging out with friends and getting involved in social activities will relieve of you of many stressers. If problems with anxiety persist, try consulting a psychologist for sessions before jumping to pharmacological therapies. If sprains are out of control, or beyond threshold, you can use analgesics like acetaminophen or neproxen occasionally.
The pain below jaw with recurrent ulcers, can be due to poor dental or oral hygiene. You may need a detailed and thorough oral examination by a dentist and you may asked for opg radiographs and antibacterial mouth washes or antifungal drops. Pain specifically at one side, needs work out for extension of teeth infections into jaw bones woth the help of radiographs. Using antibiotics and anti inflammatory drugs for throat will also help with these symptoms as well, but only after careful examination by yiur GP or dentist before commencement of these medicines.
Hoping you a speedy recovery. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask. You can also reach me directly through my profile in future, in case of any more queries. Regards.
