Violent sneezing and pain during swallowing

I had a few violent sneezes about 3 days ago as I suffer from allergies and I always sneeze every morning when I get up and they are continuous like one right after another and so on for almost 5 sometimes 10 minutes. Anyways, after it happened 3 days ago, I got this really sharp pain in the left side of my neck near my Adam s Apple and have also lost a bit of my voice. Also, when I swallow it hurts and when I sneeze I get a really sharp pain in that same spot. I am also only a 33 yr. old male and an occasional smoker (2 to 3 cigarettes/day). Should I go and see my family physician about this problem or is there a way that I can treat it myself.

Hi there.

Thanks for the query.

Since you have severe sneezing, you may have damaged your throat lining a bit due to the violent sneezing. Since this occurs in the early morning, it is quite typical is Allergic rhinitis.

Allergy is mainly due to cold temperature, pollen, certain food, drugs etc. The only way to avoid such attacks is to prevent the allergens as mentioned. Hence if you get in early morning it means you may also be allergic to cool temperature of early morning. Keep warm throughout the day and nigh with proper clothing and blankets respectively.

Kinldy stop smoking otherwise you have higher chance for getting infection and delayed recovery.

Kindly avoid hot fluids and hard food. Keep well hydrated. Eat a balanced diet. You can take anti-histamine like Cetrizine at night after Dinner which is anti-allergic medication and causes drowsiness also.

Do salt water gargling to relieve yourself of the pain and throat swelling for 3-4 times a day.

Wishing speedy recovery.
