Common Questions and Answers about Throat pain swelling


Avatar f tn When i visited him again he noticed that the swelling got better but i mentioned that i had some pain on the right side of my throat, mostly when swallowing(slight pain). He prescribed antibiotics which didn't make much of a difference(I believe it was Fluconazole). So, 3 months after, i have some sense of a tight throat and a little bit of throat pain that seems to get a little stronger at night and gets better during the day.

Avatar n tn Is it possible to not have any thyroid issues but feel the effects of throat swelling ? I am hypothyroid with Hashi's for many many years (25+) but last 3 yrs. it swings from extremely low t4 to extremely high t4 constantly.

6194758 tn?1379516487 Hello, A complete clinical examination is necessary for correct diagnosis and management .Swelling in the throat can be due to tonsillitis which can be bacterial or viral.

Avatar f tn I’m 17 years old and for at least 5 months I’ve been having shortness of breath. Last month I noticed pain/swelling on the right side of my throat (external) and it kind of went away but recently returned along with difficulties breathing while lying down (especially at night) and any type of exercise. I’ve also had a cough for about 2-3 months that has also worsened and is very mucus-y after I eat. I’m not sure what to do.

Avatar f tn I am 56. I had L4-L5 fusion a year and a half ago due to a weightlifting misalignment. I have 14 inches of titanium rods and screws in my back. I have been on 2 percocets a day for a year and a half. I have been reading all the comments on the old website that started in 2000 and I hope that all of you were successful in getting off percocet. In Sept 2010, the skin under by eyes (under the bags under my eyes) started to swell up.
Avatar f tn Pain, tenderness and swelling of the scalp, eye, nose, gums, throat and face, teary eye and runny nose. BUT all of this only happens on one side of my head/face at a time. I have never been to the doctor because it seems so silly and is usually only a nuisance (3-4 on the pain scale.) I would firmly believe it was all in my mind if it weren't for the visible swelling and tearing. Any ideas on what it might be?
2133874 tn?1335812339 The swelling and pain could also be due to mastoiditis, which is infection of the bone behind the ear. This happens when there is a middle ear infection, which spreads to involve the mastoid bone. But as your symptoms are resolving, you could wait and watch. However, if you develop fever, increase in the size of the swelling or pain; please consult your primary care physician. In the meantime you can use OTC Acetaminophen for relief from pain. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

Avatar f tn The pain is not always there but it does wake me up at night and when I eat and is a 9/10 on a pain scale. This pain is almost worse than the pain during the first week after surgery! Is this normal? Is it from nerve injury?? Can someone please advise. Thank you in advance.
