Swollen throat & no pain, what it could be ?

I had a throat infection or a virus a few weeks ago, which went away with antibiotic. Since then, I have this feeling like the top of my throat is really swollen. There is no pain or other symptoms and I m kind of worried. It can be hard to swallow when I m eating and when exercising it can be hard to breathe. I have an appointment in a week, any idea what it could be?

Hi,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum,
This can be post viral pharyngitis, you need to drink plenty of warm water, avoid chilled food/oily food for few days. Also, try doing gargles with povidone iodine mouth wash.
Take care

Regards
Dr. Naveen Kumar

Recently diagnosed with possible subclinical hypothyroidism. Have been taking levothyroxine for approx. 1 month. Have had ringing, dull ache, fullness in right ear and swelling and slight pain in neck for about the same amount of time. Went back to doctor and he said I may have eustachian tube dysfunction brought on by upper respiratory tract infection but have had no symptoms of an upper respiratory tract infection. Wondering if this could be thyroid related or something more serious. Can t tell if the swelling is a lymph node or not. Seems to be on both side but a little more on the right. 34 year-old female 5 feet 5 inches 132 lbs
