Sore throat for 3 weeks

Common Questions and Answers about Sore throat for 3 weeks

sore

Hello, I'm a 27 year old female and I have now had a sore throat for 3 weeks. My symptoms initially began as a cold with chest congestion, extreme throat pain, fatigue, and a fever for the first two days. Almost all of those symptoms went away within one week and now I'm left with the sore throat. I also have post nasal drip so I'm wondering if this is causing the pain. The pain seems to get worse in the evening or in cold temperatures. It hurts to talk also.
I know I should be seeing a Dr for this but since I have a high deductible on my health insurance I wanted to post here first to see what thoughts you all might have before I make a return visit. I went ot the Dr about 3 weeks ago due to a severe sore throat and low grade fever, he did a step test and it came back negative but due to the redness and the tenderness/swollen glands he gave me a Z-Pack of Antibiotics. Within 24 hrs the sore throat weakened and I was feeling much better.

If the sore throat persists, you might want to get that cultured for strep throat (has nothing to do with sex).

I had a mild sore throat for about 4 days now. It doesnt get better or worse. It is 4.5 weeks post the encounter (being simply deep french kissing and receiving oral). I didnt know that that female also performed other unprotected oral on multiple males. My urine test at 3 weeks was negative. Should I be concerned I may have G?
I origianlly had some sytoms of ARS 3 days after my encounter and then about 3 weeks later had a sore throat and stuffy nose. Now my wife, 4 days after sex out of nowhere got sick and vomited. She felt OK after the next day. But now 1 week later she started to get a sore throat and a stuffy nose. 1) I know that 3-4 days seems too early for the start of ARS symptoms, but is it possible? 2) Would ARS symptoms stop for a week (or in my case a few weeks) and then a sore throat start?
I did not perform oral sex on her nor did I even get close to down there. Could throat G be transmitted by deep kissing? Was 3 weeks too soon? Do I need to retest?
Can anyone answer this question? I have had a sore throat for about 4 weeks. It is February 1 in the Boston area. We have had temps. in from 12-35 Degrees (F). It started on January 4th with redness in the throat. At or about January 14th it started feeling sore. Went to the doc and he gave me pennisillan. Took it for 6 days with no help. Doc told me to stop taking med. because it is probably a virus. Throat is a little better now but still have soreness in the morning hours. 1.
As I said earlier, when I got the throat infection after 2 days I had a sore throat which lasted for 6 days (no medications taken) and second time which is exactly 2 weeks after the intercourse, it was severely inflated and had some pus in it and I took antibiotics and it went away in 4 days..
anxiety can "convince" your mind of just about anything. ever thought that you just have a plain ole sore throat? :) i know that you have been tested...but doing a search doesnt reveal your possible exposure. ??????????????
Hey docs, Around Jan 1st at 3 AM I had unprotected vaginal sex with a friend and in the morning of January the 3rd I woke up with a severely sore throat and a swollen lymph gland on my neck right beside the sore throat pain's location. I know what most of you will say, 3 days is way too early for Acute HIV Syndrome.
I had a sore throat a couple weeks ago, actually I think I was like 26 weeks (Im now almost 34) and happened to have a OB appt the next day. Ended up I had a slight throat infection. He gave me amoxicillin, told me to take tylenol for pain and use the green chloreseptic spray (not the red) and it got rid of it. Check out safefetus.com Third trimester is around 27 weeks. Do you know if your having a boy or a girl? Or is it a surprise? Do you have any names picked out yet?
I have been on synthroid for about 3 weeks now. Was on armour for about 2.5 months. Since changing over to synthroid, I have noticed that my throat is so sore. Does this happen to anyone else? What could be causing this? I am on meds for acid reflux thanks for any input.
Hi I have sore throat from last 3 weeks. few days back my sore throat has almost gone and came back next day. First 2 weeks I had mild sore throat with mild cold & mild dry cough. few days back I got couple of ulcers in mouth (near throat)& very tiny few red spots on tongue. from last week some times i'm getting light pain in ears. I had sore throats before, but never last more than a 10 days & i never had ulcers or any other mouth problems in last 20 years except sore throats.
Hello, I had a question about a recent sore throat which came about 3 days ago. Well, the back story is that about a month ago I performed oral on a new partner (male). This was the extent of what we had done, in fact, the ejaculation was away from my body completely. (not in the mouth) Sorry for that vulgarity. Anyway, a couple weeks ago I was diagnosed with strep throat in which I was treated with an antibiotic and got better.
About 3 weeks ago, I noticed my throat was kinda dry. My nose has also been kinda stuffy, on and off. Not runny, just stuffy, like an allergy/sinus. I looked at my throat and noticed that the back of my mouth (I think thats the tonsils) are red, some days its worse than others. I thought it could be mono but I dont have any other symptoms. I know some STDs show symptoms of a sore throat but I dont think its that either, and I dont have anything on the inside of my mouth.
apart from this I sucked her breasts. Now I have sore throat with with wet cough , neck ache , leg muscles pain. though I got a major hit on my leg knees.
I just dont understand why I had a sore throat exactly 3 weeks after what I percieved as an exposure. I know it is easy to write off this thread and say you had no risk, but it would put my mind at ease to know that I would have had other symptoms with my sore throat or It would have lasted longer than two days and would have been servere.
You are wrong about symptoms; most STDs of the throat cause no sore throat or any other symptom. When symptoms rarely occur, they generally are mild. Chlamydia almost never infects the throat; when gonorrhea is there, it clears up on its own in a few weeks--but of course antibiotics make it go away faster. Transmission of oral gonorrhea to a partner's genitals can occur, but is rare.
Hi Not sure about your problem, but I have been searching the net for reasons why I suffer from sore throat. I have for about 18 months been avoiding sugar and find when I have even the smallest amount it will flare up a sore throat which feels like it is bruised and feels raspy and very sensitive also gets very phlemy.
It all started back to 8 weeks ago when I engaged in sex (oral and vaginal) with a woman. 3 weeks later I began having a sore throat that I originally attributed to allergies. Then it became very severe for a week and then got some what better. I've also experienced a white tongue for at least 3 of the weeks. There's no sores on my tongue, it's just got this white layer that almost seems like it's in my tongue. I can temporarily make it better with my electric tooth brush.
