Throat pain due to allergies

Common Questions and Answers about Throat pain due to allergies


Avatar f tn Hello, The sore throat and earache are not due to the drugs but due to the upper respiratory tract infections which are causing the cough and congestion.All these symptoms are related to the excess mucus production or decreased mucus drainage from the sinuses.This excess mucus leads to congestion,cough and sore throat and earache due to pressure on the tympanic membrane.This sore throat is called pharyngitis.
Avatar f tn ve read a few complain of hoarseness, due to allergies. Acid reflux can cause hoarseness due to acid corriding the throat. Best thing to do is continue to seek a physician, till you discover one that can resolve your complaint. As for thyroid, I had a very large one, did not have any voice difficulty, only swallowing/breathing. I remember constantly swallowing, to readjust my throat. Have you seen an endocronologist? If so, what did they state.
Avatar m tn It takes a couple of days before the severe reaction passes. However, even without exposure to the fragrances my throat is irritated as soon as I talk for even short periods. I sleep fine and experience no difficulty while sleeping. I have been to a couple of specialists. The first did nothing. A year later I decided to try a different doctor and he eventually tested me for allergies. I am allergic to several things like grasses, cats, horses, trees and other stuff.
Avatar m tn i been having sum pain in my jaw by my ear been having my lymph nodes swollen for over a month...went to the doctor but was told could be allergies...of wat i know of never really had allergies....also sum neck stiffness...
Avatar m tn There could also be an allergic component. Throat pain, difficulty swallowing, fever, scratchiness in the throat, post nasal drip, malaise and loss of appetite are symptoms of tonsillitis. It can be caused by bacteria like streptococcus or it could be a viral infection. Bacterial infections need antibiotics. Consult your primary care physician who will do blood tests and take a throat swab to determine the cause and prescribe appropriate medications Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn i kinda have sore throat and sneezing might due to exposure to air conditioner because i just got back to singapore..
Avatar n tn I have never seen allergies cause pain to this degree. Plus, it's hard to call something 'allergies' when there isn't a huge component of allergic-type symptoms (sneezing, runny nose, watery eyes, itching). How old is your daughter? For young kids, this could be teething pain. She could have bad acid reflux. There could be something else going on too. My advice would be to see a different doctor (any Pediatric ENT specialists in your area?) and get another exam/opinion.
Avatar f tn My Primary Doc gave me Medrol 4mg, and after 1 day I felt awesome, but then last night, it happend again after 3 days of feeling great, the swollen throat feeling on the right side only, accompanied with some itchiness not only to the throat but to the right ear as well with pain in my neck. If Medrol isnt working, my doc told me to buy Claritin or anything over the counter for allergies.
Avatar n tn do allergy shots cause your throat and chest to ache. your head to hurt when you cough. your throat ache so bad when you bend over you feel like you going to have a heart attack.
Avatar n tn Your symptoms could be due to Vocal abuse, which is due to excessive talking, throat clearing, coughing, inhaling irritants, smoking, screaming, or yelling. Vocal misuse is improper voice usage such as speaking too loudly or at an abnormally high or low pitch. Frequent vocal abuse can cause temporary or permanent changes in vocal function, voice quality, and possible loss of voice. This can be diagnosed by a throat examination.
Avatar f tn which connect the middle ear to the throat, this balances the air pressure in the ears. This tube can get blocked due to infections of the throat, which can give lead to a feeling of fullness in the ears. This can also result in infection of the ears. Sinus infections also cause headaches. Blurring of vision may or may not be related to sinusitis. You will need to consult your primary care physician for proper assessment, who may then refer you to an ENT specialist if needed.
Avatar f tn I moved last summer, so I attributed it to allergies flaring up, due to uncommon pollens and stuff in the air. It began overnight...the next day, I was incredibly tired, nearly falling asleep in all my classes. Then, I went on to getting a high fever, really bad chills, a loss of appetite for the most part, and a worse cough and cold. Over the past few days, (on my right-hand side), one of my upper teeth has begun to hurt really bad.
Avatar n tn I have the same thing and it is caused by postnasal drip due to allergies. I have seasonal allergies but also allergic to lots of indoor things like dust. Also, certain foods can do that. Like, if you have something that is really salty.
Avatar n tn It can also be due to post nasal drip (if the child has recurrent upper respiratory infection/sinusitis etc) or due to gastric reflux. It can also be a vocal tic. Seasonal allergies can irritate the throat and cause the urge to clear the throat. Please show your child to an ENT specialist and pediatrician. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
Avatar m tn Today I failed at getting thru an open MRI. I have allergies and it is very difficult for me to lay flat on my back. What happens is My throat feels like its closing & it gets harder to breathe thru my nose. In a very short period of time mucus will get stuck in my nose and throat. Naturally, I get very agitated. I was in the machine today about 15 minutes when I had to call it quits.
Avatar f tn Hello everyone! I should first appologize for the length of this post. I'm really hoping someone can help me. I've been suffering from inflammation of the nose, throat and ears for several months now. It all began in April. I went to my doctor for a routine exam and had him look at my right ear and throat as I had woken up that morning with slight pain. He said I had an ear and throat infection and e-prescribed me an antibiotic.
Avatar f tn But if your symptoms are worsening then consult your doctor as the hoarseness could be due to a persisting post nasal drip, which can occur due to allergies or due to sinusitis. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn Hello, There can be many possible causes of frothy sputum like allergies, inflammation and infections. It can be due to any condition related to the throat or the lungs. Post nasal drip, allergies, pollution all can lead to constant throat irritation and frothy sputum. Nasal congestion, nose bleeds, facial pain, recurrent sinus infections all are the symptoms of a deviated nasal septum. Consult an ENT specialist for more queries and assistance. I sincerely hope it helps. Best wishes and regards!
Avatar m tn Your symptoms could be due to a post nasal drip, which can cause a chronic irritation in the throat. This could be due to a sinus infection, a cold or a chronic allergy. It could be sinusitis, if it is accompanied by nasal stuffiness and facial pain or pressure. Post nasal drip could also be due to allergens. These are substances like pollen, dust, animal dander, certain foods, insect venoms and certain medications.
519035 tn?1348275773 Sinusitis is almost always due to an infection, although swelling from allergies can mimic the symptoms of pressure, pain, and congestion; and allergies can set the stage for a bacterial infection. Bacteria are the most common cause of sinus infection. Chronic sinusitis occurs when the problem has existed for at least three months. There is rarely a fever with chronic sinusitis. Sinus pain and pressure is frequent, as is nasal congestion.
Avatar m tn Gastro esophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) is caused due to reflux of acid from the stomach into the esophagus. It could also be due to allergies. You will need to consult your primary care physician who will examine your throat and may ask for some blood tests or endoscopy to determine the cause for soreness/dryness of throat.
