Hi, I had feeling of something stuck in my throat so I visited ENT doctor. The feeling of stuck sensation was at or above the thyroid cartilage. I also get pungent taste sometime when I swallow. Previously I had sore throat 1 week prior visiting the ENT DOCTOR. I did not take any medical help. I used to use salt water gargle and the symptoms subsided. This visit the doctor examined my throat and prescribed kefpod for 1 week. Next day swab test was done and blood picture was taken. The swab test showed no grown micro organism. Blood picture was normal. Doctor said it is viral infection and asked me to complete the antibiotic course and use nasal spray. Ear wax was also removed. Now it has been more than 20 days the feeling of stuck sensation is still persistent. I continue to use betadine gargle. What more can I do to get over the stuck sensation? Is it the follicle as my ENT doctor said should I under go any test? Please suggest me any thing to relieve the symptom Thank you

I thought I had a cold coming on, sore throat, ear ache, phlem, aching from head to toe. When to the dr. and received ciprofoxacn 500 mg every 12 hours. As long as I took the meds. I felt fine. Once I finished it. I started feeling sick again. Doctor prescribed a steroid pack - 7 days - taking fewer amts. each day till the last day...which is today. A few days ago as I started the lower doses of the pills I the symptoms came back - aching in the very center of my chest between my breasts, body aches, exhaustion/fatigue, some ear ache pain, phlem, and some jaw pain. All I want to do is go to bed. What is wrong with me...dr. told me if needed i could go back for more antibiotics or see a ear/nose/throat specialist.

I am 5 10 , 195 lbs, 24 years old male.... So sunday night I was getting a scratchy throat, but I was not worried, woke up next morning and had a sore throat, went to work it was manageable, asked fellow employees why my throat was only sore on one side. Monday night I started to get cold chills and a fever..Went to bed and woke up next morning with an even worse sore throat on my right side only. I was tired and had body aches, so I thought it was the flu or something, took some pain killers and went to work, Tuesday evening at work I was getting even more cold chills the night before , so I went home early and took a hot bath to warm me up, some tylenol and tried to sleep. Wednesday morning, same routine, right side of throat hurts even worse, where I can barely swallow liquids with out my throat hurting. So I took some thera-flu the prescribed dosage and continue to take it but still no results, but I happened to look in the mirror with a flashlight right next to my right tonsil it looks as if it got infected and there was white stuff stuck in there. I tried to remove it with a q-tip but was unsuccessful, not only did it hurt but it felt as if it was stuck in. Thursday I went to a doctor and she said I have some sort of pharyngitis, pre scribed me some amoxicillin and asked if I have post nasal drip, not that I know of.... But I have been following the directions and still now it is friday woke up pain in my throat on my right side only and I havent any real food since sunday... Am I not giving the amoxicillin enough time, if not if my throat continues to be in pain what s next?

One week ago, I reached for the wrong toothbrush that had been in my cabinet for a year without use. By the time I noticed, it ws too late. I immediately felt an attack in my throat and sinuses. I was already taking penicillin at the tiime for a periodontal tooth infection in prep for getting an extraction/bone graph. I got the greenish discharge and sore throat. I was traveling at the time, so when I got home I began eating green vegetables and soup remedies. My throat is still slightly sore and my back sinuses are still draining but with a clear mucous. I thought I was getting better until last night I woke up with a t-2 thru t-12 back ach pain scale of 4/5. I took Exederin which has reduced the pain to a 1 or 2. I just want to know if this is turning into something more serious. I have had no trauma to the back and I have a great bed.
