Throat pain swelling

Common Questions and Answers about Throat pain swelling

throat

Avatar m tn This was 5 days ago. However, I still develop a swelling in my left throat below the jaw when I try to swallow food. This is accompanied by a dull pain. Liquid food doesn't hurt that much but as soon as I eat solid food, the swelling starts up all over again. Cold compress seems to help in that it brings down the swelling and also soothes the pain. I am worried about what this could be. Can anybody help? Thanks.

For the pain and swelling in your hands have your GP run tests for RF factor, ANA, sed rate, etc. and then if anything shows a rheumatologist can help.
Avatar n tn An area of my throat on the left side is tender to the touch. There is no swelling or coloring. It causes pain when I swallow, which has gotten worse throughout the day and seems to be moving down. It currently is just below the carotid artery. Could this be a bloot clot in a vein in my neck? If so is it life threatening?
Avatar n tn for several months i have had a feeling of swelling on the right side of my neck with a big knot and difficulty swallowing on that side as well. i feel like a lump is in my throat. many doctors said i have cervical spasms. i was diagnosed with epstein barr. it is muscular pain not lymph nodes the doctors say. now i find that it has affected my breathing. i think i am having spasms in my throat, i feel like my throat is paralyzed, i couldnt swallow or breath for a few seconds one day.

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 m tn Ihave written before about my spinal cord being compressed at C4and C5 and awaiting surgery. I now have swelling in my throat & my tongue also feels swollen. Could this be connected thru inflamation of my neck/spine? on my MRI scan it showed my cord is compressed to about 1.5 milimeters thick in a side view & on a downward view it looks to be about 10to12 milimeters wide .can the Dr tell me if surgery is urgent .I am in severe pain 24/7 thank you for your time . Regards boycee.
Avatar n tn I have had small white spots on my lip since Nov. diagnosed as a type of fungus. When I take anti-fungus medicine, it gives me terrible chest pain & I can't get rid of the fungus. On March 1, my throat & inside of my mouth swelled - could this swelling be caused by the fungus? The doctors here are treating it as a drug allergy - they don't seem to know much about this kind of fungus. The swelling has not gotten any better.
Avatar f tn ve also been having swelling and throbbing pain on the left side from the base of my neck up to my jaw, under my jaw and all the way to my left ear which occasionally aches. Sometimes my throat feels thick, kind of like its closing and makes breathing difficult. I never feel a difference in size or anything from my left side to right but all of the symptoms are on the left and it gets very uncomfortable. It also hurts after I've been pushing on it to see if I can feel lumps.

Avatar f tn I am a 45 year old female with Fibromyalgia (I have had this about 10 years). I have had throat pain for around 13 years. It started as a slight tickle, then progressed to a frequent "throat clearing". I now have a very sensitive gag reflex so that I have trouble eating sometimes. If food touches my throat, I can begin to cough; this can either lead to more coughing or vomiting. If I have a coughing fit, it causes my head to hurt around the temple area.
Avatar n tn t had anthing to drink in days (but my mouth and throat are not dry). The pain is not in my throat, but more toward my right ear. There is no swelling, and it seems to mostly hurt when I am just swallowing saliva.

Avatar n tn My mother the other night spoke to me about how she had trouble breathing the night before. She said that she felt there were to balls in her throat and they felt as if it completely closed on her throat so she couldn't breath. She quickly got up and got a glass of water and she could breath again. At night there's pain in her throat and its dry. The clinic says its an advanced throat infeciton. She's the infection for over a year without knowing unitl recently discovering it.
Avatar f tn hello, I have a question on the problem of having an ear pain on my left side and a swelling on my left lower side of the brain. It first started with an ear itch and then a throat pain...then to a pain in the left ear resembling in a swelling in the lower part of the left brain. What is it? I'm a healthy person ..I don't smoke, don't drink, and I exercise. I need some suggestion. I know it should not be a throat cancer.
