Common Questions and Answers about Throat pain hurts to swallow


Avatar n tn There is no other symptoms apart from when i swallow i get a pain on the right side of the neck by the adams apple. I dont have an actual sore throat otherwise, only when i swallow. No redness in the mouth, no bleeding etc. If i am eating and drinking swallowing does not hurt, only when i swallow my spit. Any ideas what this could be guys?
Avatar n tn It hurts to swallow and has for about the last 10 days. But it isn't like any sore throat I've ever had. Only swallowing causes the pain. Its on the left side a little above my adam's apple and I have no fever. I did start having thyroid problems about 18 months ago but am treating it with replacement hormone. My TSH is good so that appears under control. Could this be a thyroid problem?
Avatar n tn I just got back from a cruise, and something is wrong with my throat. It hurts on the OUTSIDE. If I tilt my head backwards, it feels very tight like I'm stretching my neck beyond its means. When I swallow, it hurts. It hurts from the middle of my throat to my chin. I don't know what it could be. Please help!!
Avatar f tn My throat on one side, on the inside, hurt to swallow for about 2 weeks. I thought I was coming down with something since I am a teacher and receive lots of exposer to different things. But, nothing ever happened. Now my whole throat, especially down the middle, hurts when I swallow and it hurts in front to touch it on the outside. It is tender to touch like a bruise. I have had no injuries. My lymph nodes are not swollen and it hasn't affected appetite or anything else.
Avatar n tn It feels as if there is a lump inside my throat. It is only on the left side. It hurts continually but hurts worse when I swallow. I have had this pain for a week and it doesn't seem to be getting any better.
Avatar m tn Yesterday I helped in a martial arts exam and during the exam I got choked and slammed to the ground a few times. Today my throat is hurting quite a bit and it hurts to swallow. Do you guys have any tips or ideas on how to ease the pain? Thanks!
Avatar n tn Go see your doctor to start the evaluation of this -- it may have nothing to do with thyroid.
Avatar f tn You can take some pain relief for the pain and you need to drink plenty of warm drinks. Do not drink milk as this makes mucus. If you do not feel like eating, that does not matter for a few days as long as you are drinking lots so that you do not become dehydrated. A warm drink of honey and freshly squeezed lemon juice is good. Try and persuade your mum to take you to the doctor as you may need a course of antibiotics if you have an infection in the throat or your tonsils are ill.
Avatar m tn my throat isnt really sore, it just kinda hurts in one spot and im not even sure if its in my throat it feels like it is but it could be where my nasal passage way is.
Avatar n tn 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. The blocked ears can be opened up by the valsalva maneuver, where air is blown into the cheeks against a closed nostrils, this sometimes helps to open up the tubes. Steam inhalations and warm salt water gargles can help clear the tube. Please consult your family physician. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

Avatar n tn I have a stabbing pain in my ear and it hurts to swallow. No throat pain though.
Avatar m tn My gland is bigger on that side and it almost feels like some times there is a lump stuck on that side of my throat. It hurts more when I swallow. Sometimes my ear hurts as well. I had a strep test done it was negative. I thought maybe it could be acid reflux so I have been prescribed meds but my throat is no better. Been to the doc like 5 times. He sais if I have to come back again which I am that I will have to get a scope done.

Avatar n tn It constantly feels as if there is something caught in my throat, but I only get that feeling on one side of my throat at a time. My chest also hurts on the side that feels blocked, and it also hurts to breathe or swallow. My brother has started suffering from these symptoms as well. I'd just like to know what I have, and if there are any non-prescription medications I can take ro help.
6403762 tn?1381712518 Yesterday I woke up with a sore throat and a stuffy nose, today I woke up and could barely breathe because my throat hurts so bad and my nose is stuffed up. It hurts to talk and I can barely swallow without crying, and on top of that chest pain (throbbing/tightness) has been thrown in the mix. I've tried hot tea, soup and Tylenol. Should I just go to the doctor or is there something else I can try?
287996 tn?1312023682 t cause my throat to hurt. I would have chest pain but not throat pain or difficulty swallowing. I might be concerned that you have some acid erosion from acid reflux damaging your esophagus. This is an issue that could trigger pvcs due to the vagus nerve so I would go see your doctor or a gastroenterologist to get your throat checked out.
Avatar m tn I havent hardly eaten anything because it hurts so bad to swallow. Im beginning to worry a little. I do have an appt with an internist coming up but I was just wondering if anyone else has had these symptoms and if anyone can give me an idea of what im possibly looking at? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar m tn Suddenly a week ago, within the span of 30mins, my throat went from normal to PAINFUL. Ive never had a sore throat like this before. Theres no white spots. I wanted to sleep all the time, and then got cold lit symtoms. My thoat still hurts very badly. Now, when I swallow water it hurts too. I dont know if I had a fever or not, at times it felt liek it but Ive been keeping a steady suppy of painkillers in me. Ive been coughing up blood with my mucus.
Avatar m tn Throat or chest pain that occurs every time you swallow is less likely to be related to heart disease and more likely to be related to your esophagus or swallowing mechanism. I suggest that you talk to your doctor and share your concerns.
Avatar f tn My throat hurts when i swallow and or yawn its been like this for almost 2 weeks but my throat looks normal plz help if u know what i might have thank you :)
Avatar n tn One side of my throat hurts when I swallow. The past four days it has been on and off (but both sides) It has been kinda alternating, one day hurts the next hardly any pain. But yesterday and today have been pain, and now it's one side (has it moved over? Or one side is healthy again? idk) I've tried Ibuprofen and Acetaminophen but they don't do much, and gargling salt water hardly does anything. I had a fever on the first day, but it was gone by the second day.
Avatar n tn Pain with swallowing could most probably be due to tonsillitis and a throat infection. Throat pain, difficulty swallowing, fever, scratchiness in the throat, post nasal drip, malaise and loss of appetite are symptoms of tonsillitis. The swelling under the chin could most probably be a lymph node due to the throat infection. The swelling under the tongue could also be due to a mucocele or a salivary gland enlargement.
Avatar m tn When I get a sore throat, I sometimes get pain on one side or the other of my throat, that hurts when I swallow or touch it. If the pain doesn't subside, you should call your doctor.
