Tenderness in throat and it hurts when i move my neck

i have been having throat pain for the past 2 weeks. it started dull so i thought it was my sinuses because i usually have a sore throat right before my sinuses start acting up, but my sinuses are gone now and the throat tenderness is still there. It feel like something maybe swollen on the inside of my throat to the left of my windpipe, it hurts when i swallow anything or nothing at all, i can gently press the outside of my throat where it hurts at and i feel pain then, and i noticed today it has gotten to the point where when i turn my head , left, right, up or down it hurts then also. What could be the cause of this?

Hi,

Welcome to Healthcaremagic Forum,
This condition of yours is called pharyngitis. You need to consume plenty of warm water, do gargles with povidone iodine mouth wash, avoid oily/spicy/chilled food for few days and take some pain killers. Also consult your ENT specialist if the pain does not subside.

Take care

Regards

Hi, I have a hole on the right side of my throal near my uvala, it does not hurt. I am feeling a pressure in my neck. Also, on the right side of my neck there is a knot. It is not hard it moves when you touch it. My neck is also stiff on the right side only.

Good evening, I am a 38 year old female, and I consider myself to be in good health. No medications and have no medical conditions. A few weeks ago I was trying to move a cabinet back into a tight space and I ducked my head and put it under the top shelf and tried to move it back with my neck/back. Stupid I know.....as soon as I did it I heard something pop and instantly in pain. The first week was really bad and I have just kept thinking it will heal. Today I was rubbing the back of my neck just in my hair line and noticed a small indent just left of the center of neck and when I put a little pressure on it I immediately started to hurt like I did the first week and have been hurting all day now. I also get this weird feeling in my throat, I don t really know how to explain it at all. I am not sure if the two things are related but it happened again when I was showing/telling my husband about it. Is this something to worry about? Do I just need to let it heal? I never really go and see a Doctor, I always feel, if I am sick I will get better with rest and fluids and kind of just thought it just needed time.

Hello, I have had a sore throat for 2 weeks now, I had an ulcer in the back of my throat and I could hardly talk, I had to spit instead of swallow due to all the pain. The ulcer has seemed to get better, however my throat still hurts quite a bit. I was given antibiotics and completed them 2 days ago. I have had a mono test as well as HSV1 and HSV2 all of which were negative. I am pretty miserable and continue to take 800mg ibuprophen every 8 hours consistently, if I try not taking it my pain is unbearable. Should I be concerned? Are there other test I should have done?
