Causes of throat ulcers symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Causes of throat ulcers symptoms


Avatar f tn Hi, I'm new here, apologies if this is in the wrong place or i've not got it right. Basically my sister has been ill for years, she's seen hundreds of Doctors and nothing has helped. It's making her miserable and she's desperate. The problem is that she permanently has a mouth and tongue covered in ulcers. It causes a lot of pain, she can't eat properly and is tired all the time. She has also had other symptoms at times including dizzyness, palpitations, depression.
Avatar n tn Blood with coughing can have nose, throat, stomach or lung sources. The range of causes is wide including the lining of the nose being dry to ulcers to tumors. Although your symptoms are infrequent and minimal, you should get examined by an ent doctor. Good luck.
Avatar n tn On Feb 1 I developed a severe red scratchy throat, and I still had several mouth ulcers. I took Augmentin 500 3x/day for 10days. After the 10days I still had a sore throat that feels like an ulcer down my throat, and I also still had about 10 mouth ulcers as well as swollen gums. I went to my Internal MD and he put me on Medrol dose pack and Levaquin. This initially helped w/ the mouth ulcers but the one down my throat got much worse. I was given a Celestone inj and put on Orapred.
Avatar f tn I do know that lupus is diagnosed when someone has at least 4 out of 11 criteria. Positive ANA and sed rate are only one of the 11. It is not dx by lab alone. And you could have a very mild case. I will tell you that lupus can react to tanning beds and cause your ANA/SED to be elevated. Sun exposure can cause an immune response to occur in people w/ lupus. Thus elevating the ANA. Sun exposure does not have the same reaction to people who do not have lupus.
Avatar n tn These symptoms can be due to various causes. Any infection,gingivitis,pharyngitis,thrush,mouth or throat ulcers, inflammation of the esophagus,GERD can lead to burning and pain while swallowing. Avoid eating spicy fried foods. Take some over the counter antacid for relief. If you have any throat problem consult an ENT surgeon. If the symptoms persist you may need evaluation and investigations like complete blood count, esophagogastroduodenoscopy etc.
Avatar n tn i have sore red ulcers in the back of my throat. I have had these for at least 2 years now. I went to the doctor and he gave me some antibiotics...they did not work at all! Recently i went to a GUM clinic to ask about causes etc. The nurse was very unhelpful and asked why i though it was an STD. He then mentioned an HIV test which freaked me out. He told me to go to my GP. I am sooooo worried now. Until recently i also had a type of white head on the side of my toungue at the back.
Avatar f tn My guess is, that unless a swab test was taken from your throat that was positive for HSV 1, your doctor was covering all the possible diagnoses for ulcers in the throat and that would have to include HSV. Does your doctor know that you tested negative for HSV 1 repeatedly? Do you know if you had a swab test from the ulcers and what the result was?
Avatar m tn htm As for apthous ulcers, they may be small shallow ulcers to larger ones termed major apthae. The cause of apthous ulcers is unclear and they may be triggered by stress, diet and even viral infections. Herpes has been implicated but not directly so as one of the causes. ( These disease conditions may be self limiting. Mucocele are clear bumps on the lip and may resolve spontaneously. Cold sores and apthous ulcers have no definite form of treatment.
Avatar f tn I'm currently suffering from throat ulcers that became visible some point over past twenty four hours (I've been in bed all day and didn't have a chance to check up on my throat until now), though I've had problems with my throat since yesterday morning that gradually became worse throughout the day. I originally thought it was due to me talking too much as I was dictating my essay, but as it got worse overnight where I did no talking, I decided to look into it more.
Avatar n tn ve started to develop intolerance to other foods. I either develop mouth/throat ulcers or a white, burnt tongue when I have the following: nuts, certain spices, bitter vegetables (endives...). My most violent reaction is to chili peppers; they now cause a very strong burning sensation on my tongue and red patches on my skin, as well as diarrhea. I'm worried that the list of foods I react to will continue growing... Any ideas on the symptoms and possible causes?
1571946 tn?1295753858 And now a lot of food she eats causes ulcers in her mouth and throat to itch--never had an allergy in her life til now. She has had 9 UTI's and 8 Lower resp infections in just the last 8 months. And a cat scan revealed spenoid sinus disease. Now her pancreas is hurting her to the point of going to hospital. Her lipase seems raised more than amylase most times. Her lipase was over 1400. She hates to eat due to pain. Any ideas to make sense of this confusion.
Avatar n tn Does the Combivir point to any of these symptoms? I realize the light sore throat and neck pain are probably unrelated. Do any of these point to HIV seroconversion? Would the Combivir lessen the side effects of seroconversion? Or is it an "all or nothing" type thing, where I would be getting full-blown symptoms of the PEP was not working? If I finish the treatment of Combivir and my liver/kidney function fine, are there any longterm implications of the 28-day course of the drug?
1501429 tn?1289309326 Hello, A complete history and clinical examination is important for determining the exact cause of your symptoms. The exact size of these bumps, onset, duration and progression is important for knowing the correct cause. It is possible that these bumps are your taste buds or papillae. They can become inflamed due to injury from hot food or drink or due to irritation from a virus or throat infection. Other causes are canker sores, ulcers etc.Consult an ENT specialist.
Avatar m tn We don't talk about symptoms because lack of or symptoms will not tell you anything about HIV. A test now will give you a good indication, but at 3 months it is conclusive. Use condoms.
Avatar m tn The dictionary says there may be no symptoms or mouth ulcers, and the doctors of this site state that initial symptoms include swollen lymph nodes, fever, blisters, etc. I've read they may include headache, fatigue, and muscle ache. Can someone summarize the symptoms of initial infection as opposed to recurrent infections? In the past I tested negative for HSV 1 and 2. I had a recent encounter with kissing, protected sex, and unprotected oral sex. Her std status was unknown.
Avatar m tn Six weeks is plenty of time to show a good indication of your status. 99% of people who test positive will do so by 6 weeks. If you test negative at 6 weeks, you can expect another negative at 3 months. As for your symptoms, they are meaningless in terms of gauging your HIV status and cannot be addressed here or any other internet forum. See a doctor if they concern you.
Avatar f tn This time I went to the doctor because the back of my throat also had ulcers. The doctor swabbed one of the ulcers and said she was gonna send it to be tested for herpes and for shingles. She said if they didnt call then the tests were negative. So I didn't get a call, the ulcers slowly went away, and I was relieved. However, in the past week and a bit the ulcers have been reappearing, and the glands in my neck are swollen and painful.
Avatar f tn His pediatrician says that since his tonsils are not involved and he isnt getting strep that he doesnt need to see an ear nose throat doc. Has anyone had a child with this sort of problem or experienced this sort of thing? A doctors opinion would also be very helpful as well. Thank you.
Avatar n tn This can happen, but there is a bug that causes the symptoms called helocobactor (not sure of the spelling) that can go undetected but cause ulcers and related symptoms when untreated. My uncle recently had a heart attack and is now fine, but the meds he is on revealed a stomach ulcer (caused his stomach to bleed as they aggrevated his ulcer) that he was completely unaware of, being that he does not drink and previously had no symptoms.
Avatar f tn Did your doc even bother to do a strep test or anything? Strep throat can also cause ulcers in the throat and mouth and strep is definitely something that neeeds to be treated with antibiotics.
Avatar m tn its also quite inflamed. i still have the sores at the back of my throat but my toncit area is now also red. im worried of gingervitis (sorry abou that spelling!) however its not red around my teeth and as you can see in the photo i have great teeth with minimal damage (first filling recently at 25) im getting a bit nervice this could be something more. i just have had some strange things the last two months.
