Avatar_m_tn The pain in my neck under jaw line has been persistent since december and it hurts <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swallow</span> now. My question is if hiv pos would these be typical symptoms after just six months?
Avatar_f_tn Didn't 'swish' in mouth because didn't want to bite myself with a numb <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>ngue. It takes a few days for them <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> start <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> clear.
1346802_tn?1285781547 Drinking water has become a project and eating sometimes hurts too when i <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swallow</span>. Not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> mention only on my left side I have this chronic sore throat all these symptoms came on fairly quick and never went away and is getting worse!!! 5 ENT can't find proper diagnosis but all say that click is abnormal, no dah!!!
Avatar_f_tn I have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> throat, hurts <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swallow</span>, I have sores in my mouth and one on my lip, my gums are very sensitive and appear swollen, also have some burning in my stomach this started about a week ago. I have alot of stress in my life and had an IBS episode and still have it , but not as bad. Please help me!!
Avatar_f_tn Hello, I often have what feels like something in my throat is dislocated and I have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> pop it back into place or it hurts bad and I can't <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swallow</span>. This is higher than my thyroid, I went to an ENT and he said it was probably my hyoid bone. This has started happening more frequently in the past year and become more painful. I have had dental problems, I had two metal crowns on the right side in the back of my mouth one on the top and one on the bottom.
Avatar_n_tn ) I used <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> just put oral gel on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>ngue <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> kill the irritation for a while so I could eat or just not have that soreness in my mouth. Someone else mentioned "thrush" and I am not familiar with it but I know there was a posting on it around the first of the month (this month). Hey I did the Debbie jam and push procedure with the needle Friday night and overall other than passing out it wasn't so bad.
Avatar_n_tn I am so glad I found this site because a couple of people on this site have mentioned they had switched from Listerine mouth wash <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> Crest Pro-Health mouth wash, well so did I, and that is when the orange <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>ngue and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> throat began. That seems to be at least one common thread people have. I am going to stop using the Crest Mouthwash and switch back to Listerine. I will let you know if this works.
Avatar_n_tn On monday I started with a sore throat but this time it is worse because the roof of my mouth hurts along with my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>ngue. It hurts <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> swallow and to take meds. Is there any good advise. I am tired of going to doctors and them telling me it is part of treatment. I am in pain and don't know what to do.
577132_tn?1314270126 Finger-like projections on the surface of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>ngue (papillae) may be lost, causing the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>ngue <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> appear smooth. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>ngue color changes (usually dark "beefy" red). Some Causes: Poor hydration and low saliva in the mouth may allow bacteria to grow more readily. Disorders such as iron deficiency anemia, pernicious anemia and other B-vitamin deficiencies.

Avatar_n_tn I also have had a very bad <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> throat lately. I have been taking chloroseptic and other OTC meds. It hurts <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swallow</span>, and sometimes gets so bad it feels like someone is stabbing my throat. Or like it has been cut, scratched, or even sanded down. I have a very hard time swallowing. I have also been getting sick lately, ie: getting headaches, slight fevers (yesterday I was so cold and my house was about 78, and outside was about 90 or so. I live in florida), nausia, aches, etc.
Avatar_n_tn i went to the doctor's today and she said that my throat was really red. but it isnt <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> at all and isnt hard <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swallow</span>. could these syptoms all be totally unrelated? do you think this is possible oral herpes? the thing that worries me the most are those bumps on my tongue. i went to two diffrent doctors and they both said it was nothing... taste buds acting up... but im skeptical. any help would be much appreciated.
Avatar_m_tn But, today I just noticed a red spot forming towards the back of my throat near the that thing that hangs down but towards the side. None of it hurts though but it happened <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> form now when this thing on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>ngue was around. I also have a canker sore on my gum at the front upper of my mouth, which that one of course hurts. I'm just freaking out now that this red spot formed, though the tongue looks better.
Avatar_f_tn About 4 days ago I noticed that i got little cuts on the corners of my lips and that there was a little white thing on it that looked like a pimple but it isnt, and the tip of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>ngue reallyyy hurts like crazyy. I have noticed that there are little white bumps on it .. and i usually never have that. And im not sure if this has something to do with that but my tonsils also hurt like a mother. Its so hard to eat and drink and swallow because they feel like theres a knife stabbing them.
Avatar_f_tn Which then makes it difficult and painful <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swallow</span>. It tends <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> go away after about and hour being up but, goodness, it's so strange! Have tried Oral Balance (as recommended by the Liver specialist) but that only works for about an hour to keep the mouth moist and then it all dries up again, not to mention it makes me over-salivate. Suggestion!?
Avatar_n_tn I wish I could be really clinical about explaining it but basically Prilosec blocks the body's absorption of folic acid. I have had a sensitive/<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span>/burning <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>ngue for months and finally went <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the doc after trying to treat it myself with dry mouth washes, etc. She ordered a blood test which showed that I had a folic acid deficiency. It is because of the Prilosec. So, I've started taking folic acid pills every morning (cheap at the drug store and 100% folic acid) and it has helped.
Avatar_n_tn Anyway, I went to the doctor this morning and she said swelling like this (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>ngue, lips) is called angiodema. She said if I continue <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> expose myself <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> this allergen (whatever it may be) the next stage could be anaphylaxis. I'm really scared. I have 2 little kids and I'm terrified of something happening. I can't avoid the allergen if I don't know what it is.:( Please help.
Avatar_m_tn I have neck pain on the right and it hurts more when I <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swallow</span> and pain goes down <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> my collar bone; also pain behind the right ear which runs down the back of my neck into my right shoulder. Sometimes ( rarely though) I feel the pain has moved or is also being experienced in the left lower jaw. It feels sometimes like my teeth are hurting.
1442846_tn?1284657777 I am a 19 year old female. The past couple of days, it hurts <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swallow</span> and on both sides of my neck, the glands are achy. I have no clue why my body is doing this but, i really hate it. And i kind of think it has something to do with me getting my tongue pierced. One day after i got this done, is when i started to feel this way. I would very much appreciate it if you can reply to me. Thank you.
Avatar_f_tn The symptoms I am having are a crazy sore neck everytime i turn my head a certain way it feels like my neck is so tight i cant breath, My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>ngue feels like it is swollen and when i <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swallow</span> it hurts. I find that these symptoms are worse at night. I could handle the neck pain i think if it didnt feel like my throat and my tongue didnt feel like they were swollen. Has anyone ever expierenced this before. I tried to explain this feeling to my husband but he didnt get it.
Avatar_m_tn I bit the back of my tongue a few days ago, and then there was a sore there (but no puss), and my lymph node on that side of my mouth swelled and is aching. It hurts <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swallow</span> or move my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>ngue or open my mouth too wide. I think my jaw on that side of my mouth is infected, but I have no idea. The regular doctor gave me penicillin and a throat swab for strep, but I think he has no idea what's wrong...
Avatar_n_tn they are red, kind of big, and there are tons of them. they hurt really bad, feel something in my throat, and it hurts <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swallow</span>. i also might have a fever and have been sneezing alot with a stuffy nose. im not sure if these symptoms match, but im worried about what i might have. also, over the past few years, my throat has been extremely dry all year round and my voice has become verryy hoarse. please help!!
Avatar_f_tn I am worried though, because the pain has gotten progressively worse over the day and it is hard <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swallow</span>. Nothing seems <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> help. Tylenol, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> throat medicines, eating cold/warm stuff - nothing helps.
657020_tn?1238041118 I used to always scrape my tongue when brushing my teeth but I can't do that anymore because it irritates the tiny little red bumps on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>ngue. Sometimes my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>ngue is so <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span>, it hurts <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> drink water! Thank you for writing back :) I'm going to ask my new doctor about a prescription for diflucan.
Avatar_f_tn 2. Is this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> throat a sign of the herpes? It's day two with the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> throat, no fever, no cold, no runny nose.
Avatar_f_tn i don't know where my tonsils are (but i know they're in the general vicinity). i do know i still have them though... if it was tonsillitis, wouldn't it be oosing stuff? and i'd definitely go if i couldn't swallow/breathe.
Avatar_f_tn Hi purple, hope this discussion is still going on. I have similar symptoms <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> you. Started with a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sore</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>ngue and ear ache, which google kindly informed me was cancer!! Struggled to swallow without pain and then totally lost my appetite and over a few months lost a stone in weight. My gp sent me to ent guy who straight away put a small scope up my nose and down to the back of my tongue where the pain was and said there was some 'assymetry' to my right side of my tongue and sent me for biopsy.
Avatar_n_tn For candida, you can try a product called Threelac, or even plain, unsweetened yogurt, placed on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>ngue for as long as you can not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swallow</span> it or wash it away with saliva. Nutritional deficiencies to look into include iron, niacin, lysine, B6, Riboflavin, B12, and if you also experience bleeding gums, vit C.
Avatar_n_tn It is frustrating since it hurst when you <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swallow</span> and you probably want <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swallow</span> a lot because of the swelling (horrible cycle). The body aches sound a bit like a residual flu. Often people get the flu (viral) and end up with a secondary bacterial infection (sore throat) directly after it. Hope it helps and get lots of rest.
Avatar_n_tn You've attached <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> a very old thread and most of the previous posters are currently inactive on the forum, so it's unlikely that you will get a response. to insure that you get the best attention to your particular issue, you should start a new thread of your own, listing your symptoms, lab results with reference ranges, meds/dosages, etc.
