Hello, It hurts to swallow in the front of my throat. My throat also hurts when I sneeze or cough. I threw up yesterday and whenever I stand up I feel really light headed. My ear also hurts when I touch it. I find myself not able to hear very well out of that one ear. This has been going on for 3 days. I cant sleep very well at night because of this. What should I do?
this only happens when I swallow. Very painful and hurt my inner ear too when this click happens. My tongue feels stressed out and like there is a foreign body sometimes pressing on my tongue way in the back. Drinking water has become a project and eating sometimes hurts too when i swallow. Not to 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!!!

I have the same problem when i swallow or yawn my ears pop everything is very loud and painful I have to plug my nose and take a deep breath to pop them back in place I have been to the ear dr. & everything is normal so he says so i figure if you yawn and it does it then maybe the dentist would know WRONG. I have had the problem for at least 17 years. before it would do it about 5 times a day and of 2 years ago it does it every time.So I am with you and will keep searching.
Felt flu like and now my right ear won't pop and it hurts when I swallow. I don't think it is infected, it just all of a sudden felt plugged and when I swallow, it sorta 'pops' but hurts when it does and it doesn't clear.
Mid week last week I started to have a pain off an on on the right side of my throat right where my larynx is. The pain would manifest when I swallow or begin to talk or cough and would radiate into my right ear. This is not a severe pain but enough that I notice it. It doesn't happen every time I swallow or sing or talk or cough but it hasn't gone away yet. Now, if I push right at the base of my ear lobe it hurts (you know, the bony part) and radiates back towards my larynx.
I would just like to know what might be wrong, so if i do end up having to go to the ear nose and throat doctor, i will have some ideas on what to talk to him/her about..any help is greatly appreciated!!!
as soon as i stop the riba in a day or two its gone and as soon as i start it its back...its only on my left side...when i swallow i feel it in my ear as well as my throat...just wondering if any one has tis sx ? thanks...
First it started with a little throat irratation, and that turned into swelling (hurts a little when i swallow) and i feel that my throat is swollen on both sides but on the outside i feel pain and a swollen little lump on the right side, which is more sore than the left. It hurts to turn my head and sometimes when i walk the pain from my neck goes into my right ear and right temple. I have not been dizzy, nor feeling nausea, but i have had regular diarrhea.
for the last couple of months, the right side of my throat hurts when i swallow....it's not like a "sore throat", it's more like a pulled muscle--feels like it goes to the bottom of my ear. I haven't really had a cold or anything like that, just some conjestion and some drainage. The glands under my chin aren't really that sore or swollen. Any suggestions??
Now I started with a dry throat about a week ago, accompanied by ear popping and a lump feeling in my throat when I swallow, (no actual lump) now my throat hurts on my right side and so does my ears what the heck is going on do I really have anxiety or something else? Please any comments will be appreciated especially if they relate.
Then yesterday i woke up, have ZERO voice, green mucous crap in my sinus path, classic sinus infection. However, the weird thing is, when i swallow my thryroid gland hurts. Not the back of my throat, but the goiter area. Its right below my adams apple. It hurts! I am on antibiotics now (first time in like 5 years), extemely hypo but my gland hurts. Has anyone gotten this?
Im having the same symptoms as your wife the whole left side of my neck hurts me really bad and my throat is very sore and hurts when i swollow sometimes and my neck seems to be solen too, my dr said he doubts its a throat cancer and is more convinced its a thryoid problem and i have been reffered to an ent specialist ask your gp to make an ent (ear nose throat) refferral to sort out your wifes problems hope thats helpfull Haze xxx
but the throat is were it's at. Any my throat only hurts when I swallow but my neck hurts continuosly. My doctor just drew blood based on my symptoms but never felt my neck. Is sore throat and neck soreness a symptom of thyroid disorders? Thanks!
It began in 1976 and re occurs every 5 to 6 years. I get a sore throat (not tonsils but when you swallow) I now go straight on antibiotics and use Bricanyl inhaler although it doesnt seem to have much effect except to cause alot of mucus coughed up from the lungs. It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out.
my sore throat is pretty much gone but it hurts when i yawn it feels like somethign is about to pop and it causes a pain in my ear. when i swallow cold things i feel pain. oh and did i mention that all of this has happened on the right side of my throat only. i even had a swollen gland....is this tonsilitis?????or something more????
I've been having pain if I take a deep breath or when I swallow. It's deep in my throat. Nothing like having strep or anything. I also have pain on the outside of my neck in front. If I run my fingers on both sides of my throat it hurts. Almost where your thyroid is located. I'm on antibiotics for an ear infection and my pcp thinks that my throat has inflammation way down my throat. Hopefully the meds will help with my throat too...very strange, because this hasn't happened to me before!
my ear hurts on the left and when I swallow-have used warm water -it just sits there doesn't came out or go down the throat
It hurt and when I would swallow it would spaz out again. It's not a sore throat feeling though, it's hard to explain. Anyways, I was finally able to eat some soup (without any chunks). Thats what I've been eating the past few days. It's now the 23rd and it's still swollen just on that one side like a little ball. It hurts on the inside but also to the touch on the outside. I also have now noticed under my tounge is somewhat like a blood blister or something.
Hello, Infections of the throat are quite likely to affect the ear since there is a connection between the ear and throat through the Eustachian tube. Common cold, flu, acute sinusitis, tonsillitis, ear infection, tooth infection all can cause sore throat and ear ache. Throat infections can be caused by bacteria like streptococcus or it could be a viral infection. Bacterial infections need antibiotics. Try warm saline garles.That may provide some relief.
But lately, I feel a pain deep in my ear , if you put your finger behind the ear in that indent (don't know how to explain) and when I swallow I feel the pain, but its not my throat. Kelly- I have never had a burning pain in the top of my ear, how long does that last? daisygirl- I don't get the humming but i have had my hearing go muffled in my left ear and its when the clicking starts. I am extremely noise intolerant!! I cringe at loud noises, tvs, phones.. etc..
It usually lasts for 7-10 days. When I have it, it also hurts when I turn my head to the right or when I swallow heavy food. During an episode I also get hoarse and frequently choke on liquids. I have to constantly clear my throat or my speech is affected. Last week it was worse than usual and is starting to affect my breathing, but only when I turn my head to the right. My PCP sent me for a barium swallow that showed a hiatal hernia and slow esophagus.
I don't smoke, and exercise regularly. This all started at the beggining of March. I had a mild sore throat and ear pain(left side only) daily accompanied by a soreness in the back of my mouth where the jaw hinges. I took a Zpak for the sore throat which helped a little but the ear pain remained. I saw my dentist who noticed my lower left wisdom tooth had broken the skin. The three others were 1/2 way out. I elected to have all the wis. teeth removed.
I've been feeling fine, and then on mon I came home with my entire body aching and my throat killing me. When I looked in my throat, it was red and swollen and I had an ulcer right at the top. I would have left it at that, but when i woke up on tues i had stuff oozing out of my tonsils on the right side. Up to this point I hadn't run a feever yet. So I went to the doc. Neg strep and so he just gave me an anti-biotic for what he is calling tonsilitis.
I popped an ear drum when I was three. As I got older, from eleven to sixteen, I had strep infections almost every six weeks and almost got my tonsils out when they miraculously stopped. Would my history of chronic infections make me more succeptible to certain conditions/diseases?
