The back end of the roof of my mouth
is what tends to hurt the most, especially in
the morning right after I wake up. There's usually an accumulation of mucus and blood and really sticky saliva, almost to the point of making me choke. Last October (2009), as well as most recently this past January (2010), I was rushed to the hospital with symptoms including a sore throat, body aches, and a high fever that wouldn't go down. They did blood work, an mri and 2 catscans.
