Throat and mouth problems

Common Questions and Answers about Throat and mouth problems


Avatar m tn After a bout of Strep and mono (though I will add that the sore throat was NOT severe in either cases oddly enough, I was swallowing fine and with relatively no pain, just slight irritation), I had noticed my throat seemed very "beat up" per se. Here is a current image of my mouth: Notice the seemingly cluster of bumps on the back wall, and overall "redness?" It's weird to me since I have absolutely NO pain, discomfort, or anything.
628151 tn?1224801643 I am a 23 year old male from the US and have had no previous problems with my mouth before now. Never had braces or even a cavity so all this is very strange to me. I have had my Wisdom Teeth removed but I still have my Tonsils so here is the story... About 2 months ago I noticed a few taste buds near the back of my tongue had grown in size and began to hurt.
974371 tn?1424653129 I am beginning to think that this is not necessarily an ENT issue but has actually something to do with the *tissue* of my mouth and throat. My tongue, palate and throat are mostly on the dry side, add to that a feeling of something stuck in my throat (more like a wad of mucus feeling), but my mouth and palate feel not only dry but like I have a mouth full of paste and absolutely nothing I use or do alleviates this problem. It is so uncomfortable and it does cause me anxiety.
Avatar f tn Now one sore is back on the left side of my mouth where my top and bottom lip connect. If i open my mouth too wide it tears and hurts. This is a new problem but it seems to be happening around the same time that all of the other things are happening.
974371 tn?1424653129 Went to a pulmonary doctor who just prescribed an inhaler. Tried that and cannot use it as it aggravates the dry mouth and throat. This is now 24/7 and interrupting my sleep as I am either trying to hack this up or my throat is so dry, I start coughing and have to try and drink water, which seldom helps. Not sure if this is an ENT issue or a pulmonary issue. Doctors don't seem to be able to tell me where it is coming from. I just know, all these problems seem to be getting worse.
Avatar m tn Ulcers have came and gone and my jaw/throat is sore. I also have a sort of strange taste in my mouth. Does anyone have any idea what this is ? I've been to see a doctor and she's getting me blood tests done.
Avatar f tn Last night I finished my seven day antibiotic metronidazole and now that I woke up it feels hard for me to swallow and my throat feels swollen(no pain.) and it feels like a build up of mucas that cant come up or go down when i swallow..throughout the whole treatment my tongue has felt raw like Ive ate a million bags of salt and vinegar chips..anyone else experience this?im 15w5d pregnant.
Avatar f tn Okay so today I woke up and I noticed that when I swallowed my throat would hurt. I went all day this way until the night before I go to sleep. I downloaded a flashlight app and decided to see how my throat looked as I do every time I'm sick. I then seem to notice what looks like 10 little red blister with white around the blisters. Not on the blisters around and I've tried looking for and answer but all of the questions say they have white bumps but mine are red.
Avatar f tn Since being on a antibotic and this cymbalta my neck feels funny and my throat feels like its got a lump of cotton in it,the cymbalta makes my mouth dry, I went to medical dr yesterday told him i thought i was allergic to meds he looked down my throat in my mouth and felt my neck and said im ok...........but its still bothering me,,,,,,,,,im thinking about stopping the cymbalta to see if it goes away.......Its really bad when i bend my head down and underneath my chin...........
Avatar f tn ve had chronic dry mouth and throat, plus other problems, for about 3 years and have seen numerous doctors and nobody can diagnosis this. It's horrible. I had the salivary gland biopsy done and it wasn't too bad. It was done with a local in the doctor's office. That must have been 2 years ago now and the numb feeling was supposed to last 4-6 weeks. Well, my lip is still half numb. It's miserable, I know!!
Avatar m tn I took the antibiotic for 2 days and my mouth problems became worse so I stopped it. A week later, I got my period and also a yeast infection with that. I went back to the docs and got a 1 day fluconzale tablet and took a cream suppository for 3 days. I also got oral nystatin to swish in my mouth. My yeast infection went away, except I have a bit of vaginal dryness now and it is itchy sometimes down there. I still have all the mouth/throat symptoms.
Avatar f tn Unfortunately, the inhalers prescribed for asthma can cause problems in the throat and getting Thrush in the mouth is not uncommon. To avoid this, have a drink after using your inhaler. Also be aware that you may have triggers that set your asthma off, like smoky atmospheres, hot or hold temperature or even hair sprays and spray perfumes. When it gets cold, wear a scarf and cover your nose and mouth with it too so that you do not breathe in the cold air.
Avatar f tn My tonsilis are still red on both sides and and they look vein and bumpy. I had a blood test done for herpes and it came back postive for hsv 1. I had been taking valtrex 500mg once a day for 10 days and my throat is still red and bumpy looking. Could this be herpetic pharyngotonsillitis or symptoms of herpes?
Avatar n tn From upset stomach, from a throat infection and also from problems with teeth and gums. If you suffer from catarrh that can also give you a bad odour in the mouth. It is important to have your teeth checked out whilst you are pregnant anyway. Wash your teeth in the morning and before going to bed and floss in between.
974371 tn?1424653129 More unresolved problems. Very long story. I suffer from chronic mouth and throat problems. Seen numerous ENT doc's. Took myself to a new GI doc and he ordered a nuclear dumping test which was normal. Told him of my feeling of nausea. Anyway, again having problems with night swears, wake up with an upset stomach, very dry mouth and throat and am now very bloated. He prescribed Pepcid twice a day but not helping. I now also have issues with a feeling of mucus down my throat.
Avatar f tn During the medicine for the reflux I start to have dry mouth and toothache . The toothache went off after 2 weeks and dry mouth is start around .My tongue started to have strange and irradiated feeling like scalding tongue and the upper wall of my mouth also have irradiated feeling . Now I start to have bloated stomach .I really don't know what the main cause of this . Is it anxiety ,reflux or other illness .
Avatar f tn Because of my remote location, a trip to the ENT was very expensive and I declined to go. Eventually it did clear up and heal and go away, and I went on with my life. Fast forward to last week, I've been feeling a bit stressed and noticed my heart burn and IBS acting up a bit. I did basically nothing for it, hoping it would just go away. The post nasal drip / throat clearing and dysphagia started again a few days ago.
Avatar f tn i have trouble eating certain foods,(greasy, spicy,) and certain foods give me an itchy throat, such as oatmeal, and bannanas. and mushy foods such as beans and mashed potatoes feel like they get stuck in my throat. i almost always wake up with a sore throat and a bitter taste in the back of my mouth. i have a lot of post nasal drip that chokes me sometimes,and a constant stuffy nose. i get nausea a lot too and very bad stomach cramps, because of all the mucus im swallowing.
Avatar f tn he ejaculated in my mouth while performing oral and about 4/5days later i started to get a really bad headache and my throat was sore. My headache got worse lasted all day and really hurt when i got stressed out and thought too hard or concentrated at work. My throat began to get swollen and it was hard to swallow drink or eat and it hurt alot...
747510 tn?1233029777 I never experienced an ear infection due to cocaine, but many many nose and throat ones, coke is a dirty drug and you NEVER sniff purely coke, it is cut with everything from baking soda to i have seen drywall, mmm yummy. The only thing i remember about the ear was i seemed to get wax buildup sometimes, usually after waking up and covered in sweat, in my ears too. Sometimes they would pop, but it never really hurt and didn't happen often.
Avatar m tn For the past year or so I have had these little pinpoint pimples in my mouth and throat. I have been to see two ENT docotrs and neither one of them knows what it is or what might be causing it. They have tried antibiotics and the pimples are still there. They tried an inhaler and still nothing. Thay have taken swabs and they have come back normal. One ENT said that I should have my tonsils taken out, but the other said my tonsils were fine.
974371 tn?1424653129 Now, I am very bloated, nauseated and have some stomach pain, drier mouth and throat and thick phlgym. I feel nauseated in my throat, if that makes sense. I am afraid the bacterial problem isn't cleared up or is this the probiotic causing this? I have also been having problems with a very burning pain on the right side of my back, which I think is from a nerve. Aside from the chronic mouth and thriat problems, my stomach and bowels are the major problems.
Avatar f tn My throat neck and mouth was very sore. The back of my throat was very red and I could feel the lymphadenopathy on the right side of my neck. The area where my gum hurts looked like a sore was forming right around there. Monday I went to the doctor and I was negative for strep but my doctor still treated me for it. I've been on a heavy dose of penicillin for days now and no change. It seems like the sores have spread and their on the roof my mouth, the lower and upper part of my gums.
