Avatar n tn I could feel like a little lump under my throat when I touch it. I also failed to mention that I also had a sore throat(lasting 15 minutes), which comes and goes during this ill period. I also had a recurring soar throat during the year... maybe twice which seemed to only last about twenty minutes. Recently, I had a lot of clear white mucos in my throat that may have lasted a good month or month and a half. I appreciate your help in answering other people's questions as well as mine.
Avatar n tn Hi, I had a bacterial throat infection: including sore throat, fever, headache and body aches.....This was before x-mas, I was given Augmentin, which pretty much cleared it up, except my cough and congestion.... After x-mas The cough got worse and fevers, tongue ulcers and head and body aches came again, my Dr. said this time it's viral, so it would have run its coarse, it's been almost a month and still hasn't cleared up at all.
