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.
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?

For the past 3 weeks I have had a very persistent sore throat which at times has made it very difficult to swallow. Lemsips and lozengers ease and alcohol makes it worse. Sleeping can be disturbed due to being painful to swallow. The symptoms seem...
