Severe throat pain treatment

Common Questions and Answers about Severe throat pain treatment


Avatar n tn ve been experiencing severe pain when I swallow, despite a restricted diet (1st -anti-relux, now only soft foods), 10 weeks of treatment with Aciphex (2x daily) and most recently Diflucan treatment for 10 days. The throat pain is primarily one sided radiating up to my right ear with a sensation of mucous coating the area (although ENT confirmed no sinus or ear infection). I have a constant burning sensation in my throat for nearly 4 months now.
Avatar n tn But what I know is that I have pain, though not severe. Rather a discomfort that comes and goes, preferable in the late afternoon, early evening. In addition I sometimes feel discomfort in my lower abdomen. Feels almost like gas. I have no sores (not, that I could see). I had some irritation inside my thighs, but I am overweight (102kg), so my thighs rub against each other... So not really suprising. No pain while urinating. maybe quite often, but never with pain or burning.
Avatar n tn He also said my ears look great, which I though they must have left something in them to me feeling this pain. Doc said pain is in throat but radiating to ears. It is getting worse by the day. He actually sent me home without pain medicine because he told my husband it was such a minor surgery that I wouldn't need it. He called me in narcotic tree days later and it doesn't touch the pain. Like i said before I had ear tubes 12 times an never any pain.

215220 tn?1191456864 It started with a familiar pain that I had last year and the year before. The pain is severe. Starting from my throat in a specific spot it runs up into my ear on the right side. It also goes from my ear to my top and bottom teeth and into my right temple. I can feel it also from the roof of my mouth and tongue. All on the right side. I have been diagnosed with Trigeminal Neuralgia. I believe I also have Glassopharyngeal Neauralgia. It is so painful I want to cry.
Avatar n tn My husband was diagnosed with throat cancer the end of October of 2008 and he is now more than 1/2 way through his treatment which is - 36 radiation and 3 chemo treatments. He has had a feeding tube (PEG) placed little over a week ago and now pain is so severe in his throat isn't eating at all and swallowing very little water. He is having the thick white mucous so bad that he is spitting in a cup all day long and at times is chocking. Does anyone have any suggestions for us?
Avatar m tn Hi, welcome to the forum, the throat pain needs careful evaluation. The commonest cause of throat pain is streptococcal infection. In infection is suspected, then you need empirical treatment with a course of broad spectrum antibiotic against prescription. Send blood or throat swab for culture and antibiotic sensitivity. Need to do antiseptic mouth gargle to take care of source of infection.

Doctors can not pin down a reason for the pain that will not allow arms to move and walking is difficult. PSA levels are up some and will go to a urologist on Wednesday.
