What causes stinging sore throat with pins and needles in hand?

Hello my name is Lara Lewis and am 19. This morning I woke up with a sore throat and its gotten worse as the day went by. It isn t a kind of sore throat that I am used to though. It stings from what seems like the back of my tongue all the way down my neck and I have to swallow every few seconds (I don t know why, it makes it feel a littler better though for that one second). I can t sleep because once I start to I stop swallowing for some reason my breathing slows/stops and i jerk awake in panic. I know it has only been a day but I am in Amsterdam with my friend and no family etc, so in case its something serious I want to seek help before its too late. I also feel fevery and occasionally a couple of times today my hand starting feeling the pins and needles thing randomly. I don t know if it s related though.. Thanks

Hi,

As evident from your symptoms you may be having allergic pharyngitis or tonsillitis. No need to worry. Have Betadine gargle, warm water gargle. Take steam inhalation through nose. Take hot food and liquids.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Rajat Basak, ENT Specialist
