My throat hurts more on the left side, it hurts to swallow . And when I breath the left side of my neck has a slight pain in it. I turn my head I can feel the soreness of it moving. And I have a head ache with it. When I swallow though it hurts the back of my neck, the side, and the front of my neck. I went to sleep for an hour just fine, and I don t know if its just a strained muscle, or if its an infection. Help please? Cause its also were the wind pipe from my nose meets the one in my mouth too, I have a pain behind my eyes, and the back of my head also. and it feels like in my upper jaw, and slightly behind my nose.

hello and welcome to HCM,

You seem to be suffering from an acute episode of tonsillitis or tonsillopharyngitis which is progressing on to a full infection.

Consult an ENT immediately and start on definitive treatment. If the pain is more you may even start with a couple of injections which may provide you better immediate relief.

Take lost of warm fluids and do not strain your voice

If the problem recurs then evaluate the possibility of undergoing a tonsillectomy surgery which can relieve your symptoms to a better extent

Get well soon
