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.
2 doctors took a look inside my throat and could not see anything (no redness no swollen glands) my quastion is can a sore throat that goes on more than 2-4 weeks be a symptom of HIV? if it was, can doctors see anything? had no fever... please help i promise i wont post again.
Moreover, I read everywhere that strep goes away between 5-7 days and mine lasted for more than 13 days. After 5 days of penicillin and 18 days of the initial pain, the throat pain was gone but I started to develop skin peeling on my fingertips. It started on one of my ring fingers as a small white bubble and it started peeling off and it spread through the rest of my fingers.
- fever max 38,2 C for 2 days - sore throat for about 7 days People from HIV Prevention forum told me is not a HIV concern.
Read article earlier this week that just came out about the increase in throat cancers from oral sex, that pointed out sore throat for more than two weeks was a sign along with unexpected weight loss which I have had recently. I am also becoming more alarmed about HIV, when sore throat is searched HIV is often listed and sinus infections are common. I understand risk is extremely low for oral sex transmission but the ongoing sore throat has been tough on the nerves.
A few days after I finished them, I had a mild sore throat for a couple of days, then it subsided. Now again, about a week later, I've developed a very painful sore throat, feels like razor blades when I swallow. It started day before yesterday and is worsening day by day, hour by hour really. I just took some ibuprofen for it and am drinking tons of water and ginger ale. My throat looks normal, not red or inflamed, no white patches.
At 14th day,i had another blister in throat so went to hospital She also gave me the Amox-Clav antibiotics for the Sore throat/Blister. She gave it for 10 days,I used it for 5 days.. At 14th -24th day, My back side of the neck and back side of the head was little sore/Stiff/.If I turn my head i get little pain in the neck. Also I got a back pain which is mild. I also felt i don't have energy in my shoulders..
I had another throat swab done and it was negative for Strep. I am concerned that this could be something more than just a sore throat. Any ideas of what I could do?
The saliva glands under my tongue were also sore. A few days into the sore throat I developed a small rash on my right arm on the inside of the elbow. Approximately a dozen small pimples, light pink to red. They didn't itch, but scratching or squeezing caused them to get a dark center. One week later the sore throat is mostly gone and the rash is beginning to fade. I am terrified now, though I did not start that way.
He gave me a 7 day course of antibiotics, i think it was Biaxin xl 500mg a tab or something like that, my sore throat got better but didnt fully go away, and the lump was still stuck back there. A month after that I went back to him which was a few days ago and he gave me a 10 day course of the same antibiotics and its been 4 days since I started taking them, I'm hoping it helps. my questions are 1. Do you think that I have anything serious like cancer or a tumor or something along those lines?
My b/f and I are now back together in a completely monogamous relationship. He got sudden flu-like symptoms back in February (chills, sweats, sore throat, weakness, possible fever) that came on very sudden then went away all at once after 5 days. Now, just 2 days ago the same thing happened very suddenly. Neither of us have any STD, nor genital herpes or cuts on our genitals.
I've had sore throat(s) for about 2 months now. It's usually around my larynx, sometimes above, sometimes below. It also affects the area right below the left ear sometimes. It's not always there, just usually. I had it for a month then it went away for about three or four days. Then it came back for a couple of weeks and went away again for almost a week. It ranges in severity, when it's there, from mildly annoying to absolutely excruciating.
About a month ago I went to the doctor and was given amoxicillan for 10 days, the sore throat went away and a week later it came back. I have some congestion which I can't get rid of from blowing my nose, it stays in the back of my throat. When I wake up in the morning I am extrememly dry. My tongue has a light white coating on it which goes away throughout the day but returns every morning. I went to the dr again and he gave me a Z Pac which didn't help at all.
I had also suffered for a huge aniexty attack previous to the sore throat. I was wondering, if the anxiety attack caused my sore throat (it lasted about 2 hrs +) or is there a chance i contracted and STD, and if i did what kind? thanks This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/245570'>Sore Throat/STD's</a>.
This 12 week window period is will extend if i get +ve in my next test's.. because i am having my tonsil with white stuff and ..sore throat and it just started after 15-18 days after my risssskk..! And it is still there my tonsil hurts and i got holes in my tonsils after 1- 1 1/2 months later which are having white stuff inside now a days and it hurts .... also i don't have a answer to the rash i had for 8-10 days which was all over my body .. in total 25-30 small red (pinkish) dots.
I have no previous history and do not have a diagnosis. That said, I was wondering if others here occasionally get sore throats, more than the average person? Around my uvula, it's very red but experience the pain before the discoloration. I have had bouts of thrush (albeit, was on a number of antibiotics last year) and the last being last month. Just before that, had a UTI and my kidney hurt like heck.
I do see some new small bumps next to the original mark. My sore throat is still sore but has change. I now have practically lost my voice. I have read so much about the rarity of getting HSV-2 orally and how most people have HSV-1 already and didn't know that I think I am worrying a little too much about it.
Chronic EBV Infection Reliable laboratory evidence for continued active EBV infection is very seldom found in patients who have been ill for more than 4 months. When the illness lasts more than 6 months, it should be investigated to see if other causes of chronic illness or CFS are present. http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/diseases/ebv.
I've had a very sore throat for more than 5 weeks now. My tongue is also sore. My throat is frequently making squishing, gurgling and bubbling noises. There is always the sensation that something is stuck in my throat. I feel indigestion and discomfort after meals. I'm very worried that it can be soemthing really serious. I was diagnosed with acid reflux in 2008 when I had a slight sore throat that didn't go away and was prescribed with omeprazole.
Your temp was at 98.7? That's completely in the normal range. My temp is at 99.0 to 99.1 since getting pregnant. (Your temp usually goes up in pregnancy, and mine surely has!) If you get a fever and it is 101 call the doctor right away. If it goes higher than that all the books say to go to the hospital. You probably just have a virus or are suffering from allergies. My allergies have been so bad the last few weeks that I constantly feel sick, sore throat, stuffy nose, sneezing, etc.
At 26 days I received a 4th gen Duo blood test at my local GUM clinic, stressed 4 weeks was quite accurate now and although they offered another test at 3 months she implied she felt it was possibly an outdated practice? I developed a sore throat and dry cough at about 7-10 days, the cough lasted about 2 weeks, however the tight throat, red inside and felt the constant need to swallow lasted 6 weeks total... The sore throat has returned this week! Would this test be effective at 26 days?
I use it every day, and for the past 3 weeks, I haven't had the sore throat thing at all. Just thought I'd share so this winds up in the archives for someone else with the same problem.
Again 2 days after meds, I developed what I think is a yeast infection. This one seemed more severe than the last--my labia was very swollen as was my clitoris area.My GP prescribed Dilucan over the phone and I took it on Thursday afternoon.Within 2 days the itching definitely subsided, but I was still sore over the weekend. NOw, my soreness is better except on a few small pustule-like sores that I noticed on Saturday: two on my left labia and one close to the hood of my clitoris.
2 weeks afterwards I developed a slight sore throat, more a slight inflammation than actually sore - no soreness swallowing or eating cirtus fruits for example. The throat problem lasted 10 days and has finally cleared up. And I am very prone to this sort of inflammation, always have been, I dont know why - but it does not normally continue 10 days, that is unusual. I have no other symptoms. I am of course concerned and have stopped all sexual activity since, even protected.
I am not on any medications right now. I never was. All they told me 10 days back was to wait. Viruses can last 10 days. It's been 15 days. First 10 days(day 10->20) sore throat which cleared up, but then the swollen glands which won't go.
Did my sore throat make me much more susceptible to HIV? If it were not for the blood and the sore throat I would not be too worried--but since these additional co-factors were present I am concerned. I would like to know how much of an issue having a sore throat in combination with the blood is--or should I relax about it? Further, I do plan to get tested once I return to the USA. I plan to get the PCR RNA test.
Just as I was starting to feel better the muscle aches and tonsillitis came back and I felt shivery (all symptoms came at once, but only tonsillitis lasted more than a day) tonsils were bigger and redder than before and extremely painful. My right tonsil also had a White coating further back and is quite deformed.
A few days later, I had a severe fever, cold sweat, chills and on top of this a very sore throat. My tonsils, mainly on the right were enlarged and had white puss-like bubbles. I went to the doctors and he quickly diagnosed me with having Strepp throat. He did not give me a swab test at this time and perscribed me with Amoxicillin (sp?). I was taking Amoxicillin for almost a week but was not feeling any better.
It was like sore throats I've had before (I cant tell if it was any more painful than a previous sore throat), but I'm really worried about the timing. I have been monitoring my mouth and my genital area on almost an hour by hour basis and I have not found any abnormalities / sores / bumps / blisters. I have 2 questions: 1. Can HSV1 (or HSV2) show up as a bad sore throat without any visible blisters elsewhere inside the mouth? 2. How accurate are tests for HSV1 / HSV2?
