731024 tn?1231469911 About 2 days ago, I started feeling like I was coming down with a cold. My throat was a little irritated, but I thought nothing of it. I went to bed that night at about 9:45, and woke up at one, my throat was killing me! It was the worst sore throat I had EVER had. I stayed up the rest of the night, looking for something to help me, CRYING, wishing I could go to sleep. I never found anything but DayTime (it's like DayQuil, just cheaper) and it didn't help.
Avatar n tn I used to have sever throat pain. After being treated for multiple things and taking every antibiotic and pain killer in the world the doctors finally gave me a steroid shot. Within an hour I was feeling much better. You could ask your physician to take a look at your sinus, as that could be the cause of your problem.
Avatar n tn Hi, I have had sex with a prostitute only one time (used a condemn) and kissed her mouth to mouth deep for 3 minutes.. I have started with Mouth Burning Pain and bad saliva which started after two weeks from the incident. I have checked the doctor, he said no mono but suspected strep throat so he treated me with Augmention / Clarithomycin 500mg for 7 days each. He gave me predisone 60mg per day for 7 days. predisone helped little but those symptoms came back again.
Avatar n tn i have pain from the top of my head to the bottom of my throat on my left side, it begin with just my ear, not it all hurts, i also have pain inside of my mouth, what is this
Avatar n tn I just got over the flu of ten days. I now have burning in the back of my throat, or anterior of the neck. Is this strep throat? I've checked my throat and its not red, and I have no fever. what could it be?
Avatar m tn So recently I have been having throat pain, and i took a look in the mirror with a flash light. I noticed I have yellow stuff in the back on my throat that wont move( tried with a q-tip). My tonsils are also swollen and inflamed, they also have the yellow stuff on it, that stuff wipes off though. The yellow stuff looks like mucous to me. I also have pain in my ears, head, and stomach. What could this be a sign of?
Avatar f tn The symptoms described could be due to a throat infection, most probably streptococcal or a viral infection. Strep sore throat needs to be treated with an antibiotic as strep is a bacteria. Viral sore throat is best treated with rest, warm oral fluids and (OTC) tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen for pain.
Avatar n tn I recommend you see your Dr about this. It may be your tonsils or strep throat. It's really hard to say but your Dr should be able to find out what's going on.
Avatar m tn Seen my doctor and he put me on Amoxicillin. My strep cleared up for the most part (the white crap all over my throat). Throat is still sore and have ulcers in a few places around my mouth. Not to worried about that, what does worry me is now my gums are killing me. I cannot even tough them with a brush. No blood as of yet from them. Is this the last of the infection retreating?
Avatar f tn I have had chronic strep throat since I was little. I even have one tonsil that is constantly swollen and has been for the past 5 years (we call it my bad tonsil). Anyway, my good tonsil is all swelled up and is completely white with blisters. My other symptoms include ear pain, headache, body aches, and soar throat on the blistered side. I have had strep a million times and this doesn't feel like strep. The throat pain isn't bad enough for me to think its strep.
1179627 tn?1263936593 I was recently diagnosed with a throat infection. I suppose it was bacterial because the Doc gave me an injection-form Penicillin and a prescription of 500mg of Amoxicillin (pills). This is my second day on the antibiotic.
Avatar f tn I was just diagnosed with a bad case of strep throat and I'm having a horrible time with it. it feels like I've been swallowing fire - even drinking water brings tears to my eyes. My doctor prescribed an antibiotic (Ceftin - I'm allergic to quite a number of antibiotics so have to be careful what I take) and also a gargle/mouthwash called Magic Mouthwash that has lidocaine, benadryl and Maalox in it that I can gargle with four times a day to help numb my throat and ease the pain.

Avatar f tn I have gotten a sudden sore throat, started three hours ago, and severe pain in my legs especially the back sides of them into my calves starting in my buttocks. I'm wondering if there is any insight into what may be causing his all of a sudden. Neither the throat or leg pain seems to be relieved by anything.
Avatar n tn This may sound VERY off topic, but have you been tested for Strep during your bout with the Sinus issues? Explained: Strep is a VERY nasty bacterial infection that can spread to other stronger areas of the body if not treated immediately. Furthermore, a high percentage of people who get strep don't necessarily feel it in their throat and often times have NO symptoms at all until it has already spread.
Avatar f tn I believe it is you may be leading up to a sinus infection. I have started with a sore throat a few times and had signs of strep. But I wait to get treated the pain isn't there anymore and then I find out I have a sinus infection and strep. You may should get your tonsils out if you get strep to often. My brother had to have his out. Just to be safe get to a doctor. May god bless you.
Avatar f tn I have a mildly sore throat that is presenting itself like strep with white pus on my tonsils (minus the severe pain, fever and other symptoms). Went to the doctor today and they tested for strep, mono and the flu. All negative. I tested for HIV today and also negative (rapid test, 5 weeks since last exposure) Wondering what else it could be? Throat gono? Another virus?
Avatar n tn About 2 or 3 days later, my throat was sore, i had yellow and white spots in my throat, was tired all the time, and had muscle pain. the muscle pain may have been worsened from going to the gym prior to the first sign of pain in my throat. The symptoms online said it was just strep throat, but there was a note at the bottom that said symptoms of gonorrhea are similar to strep. how can you differentiate between the two if at all possible?
Avatar f tn The only way to confirm that you have strep throat is by a throat culture (or rapid strep test) in your doctor's office. Even if you do, it's probably a good idea to continue using your CPAP, since having inflammation in your throat will worsen your sleep apnea. In most cases, what feels just like strep (pain, difficulty swallowing) is usually not due to the specific strain of strep that we test for (Group A beta-hemolytic). Many other conditions can give you the same symptoms.
Avatar m tn Wasn't sure where to put this. But I believe I have strep throat, and the doctor prescribed me antibiotics. It's been 4 days now, and though it feels better, my throat is still in pain. It hurts most in the morning and at night, while hurting very little in the afternoon. I looked at my tonsils in the mirror and they are still covered in white spots, even after 4 days of antibiotics. Should these be cleared up by now, or does it take longer?
