Common Questions and Answers about Thyroid throat pain uvula

throat

Avatar m tn Throat tenderness but not pain (more a feeling that something is there), constant need to clear throat but no coughing, dry feeling in throat, slight pain around jaw, ringing in ears, small round bump with warty temperance right next to uvula.
Avatar f tn I went to the hospital immediately they told me I had uvulitis gave me prednisone and told me to take benadryl. I did the whole 5 days of prednisone the sore throat went away and the uvula went down a bit. Then around the middle of June I noticed it felt like something was stuck in my throat I looked and my tonsils seemed to be really swollen but no pain. At that time I had no health insurance so I couldn't get to the doctor. I gargled with salt water and the swelling went down some.
Avatar n tn I'm not saying difficulty swallowing as in the uvula itself is blocking things, but my throat is. I've had difficulty swallowing for about 2 months. Did blood tests which were fine, x-ray that showed nothing and acid reflux meds that did nothing. Other symptoms are that I felt something in my throat sometimes, which I've now found out was the uvula, and ear pain sometimes. I'm going to an ENT for an endoscopy or barium swallow in 2 weeks.
Avatar n tn Also, I just found out I have a nodule on the left lobe of my thyroid. I have read that this can cause coughing based on its position (pressing on the windpipe, etc.). I also found out that my uvula is elongated and constantly touches the back of my tongue. My ENT feels this could be the cause of my coughing. An elongated or enlarged uvula is common in people with sleep apnea. Just some things to think about.
Avatar f tn t think this is anything unexpected/unusual for the thyroid surgery I had, I just want to know if there is something else I could be doing to help! Besides sore throat/uvula and incision site on neck, I feel pretty good now. I am going to try to lie down for a bit and see if that helps decrease the swelling.
1569575 tn?1314424059 For the past three weeks, I've had problems with pain in my throat. Not soreness, but legitimate pain, like a stabbing sensation in the base of my tongue that extends to above my uvula and about halfway down my throat. It's even affecting my ears and making it very difficult for me to get restful sleep. Since this started about 4 days ago, I've gotten about half as much sleep as I usually do.
1519309 tn?1290956580 ve had a sore throat for about 2 1/2 months now, and have been on antibiotics 2 different times with no real help from them. My throat has been really red, and sometimes the redness has grown to around the uvula, sometimes looking like circular blotches on roof of mouth near uvula.
Avatar m tn It was diagnosed as uvulopharyngitis (not sure if it is uvulopharyngitis or uvulolaryngitis). The pain has subsided, but the erythema is still there, and the uvula has not gone to its normal size, it is still long, although not causing much problem. i have completed the course of antibiotics, but the doc asked me to revisit in 10 days. Im worried, and want to make sure there is nothing serious. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/582047'>long uvula</a>.
Avatar m tn I am sooooo frustrated and I am in severe pain! I had a septoplasty done 5 days ago and they damaged my uvula and throat. GRrrrrr...... I thought the majority of my pain would result from the actual surgery. I didn't feel the major discomfort immediately after my surgery. The awkward feeling in my throat was felt upon waking up the next morning. I could barely swallow as I could feel my uvula rest on the back of my tongue and when I looked to see it was half white????
Avatar m tn This continued for a while the doctor wasnt concerned and said it should sort itself out, it didnt recently my uvula has swollen and it is touching the back of my tongue.
9431831 tn?1403732569 I was curious to see why he seemed so shocked when he saw my throat I checked when I got home and there are white spots all over my uvula, which I guess explains all the pain. But oddly enough the white patches are ONLY on my uvula. I was just curious if this sounds like strep throat or what? I've been trying to find pictures of anything that looks similar to what I have and I haven't found anything.
Avatar f tn The swollen red tonsils, purple patches on the uvula and fatigue could be due to tonsillitis. 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.
Avatar f tn I have bumps in my throat behind my uvula, my uvula seems a little red as does the palate around it. Both sides of my throat by the uvula are swollen and I don't know if my tonsils are swollen or not but it looks as if so. There is a bit of white patches on both sides of throat by uvula. Also my tongue is always dry! I don't know exactly what's wrong. Anyone have any idea?
Avatar m tn When ever i swollow ths pain in the sides of my throat in the back by my uvual hurts & my uvual is thouching my tonuge, and bothers my when i swollow to or talk or breath but not eating. i haved had this for 3 days already and hate it.

Avatar n tn my uvula is enlarged and touching my tounge? what could this be?
Avatar n tn I have read so many forums on home remedies most say wait it out, until I had the uvula swell I was fine with that. Most of the forums that talk about the uvula swelling contribute it to drinking alcholol, but I dont drink. They also say see a DR. if it lasts more than 2 days, but reply that the DR. just gave them prednisone which I can get. Please someone help, Going crazy worring about it all..
Avatar n tn He does have what appears to me to be an elongated uvula (drags the back of his tongue) but he says it feels like he has something in the back of his throat that needs coughed up. Nothing ever does come up and he has no nasal drip. I've looked at his throat and everything looks good. Nothing swollen. Could this just be from his uvula? Should I take him to an ENT? Our doctor just brushed it off last time I mentioned it.
Avatar m tn I’m on my 10th day post op but the uvula has been about half inch off from the center amd swollen from day 1 and it’s remained that way ever since despite all the scabs having fallen off already and otherwise little pain by now. I also saw small scab in the base of the uvula indicating that they have cut into it during surgery, perhaps accidentally. I can’t swallow properly due to the deviation and swelling.
Avatar m tn said my uvula was swollen and did a CT of my throat. The CT came back showing a 1 cm nodule on my thyroid. Is there some sort of connection between the two? I am off to GP for further looking into the thyroid nodule.
Avatar m tn Hi, infections in the mouth or throat can cause an inflammation of the uvula. This should subside as the infection resolves. If the swelling persists or if the uvula is long, it may need surgical correction. Please consult your primary care physician for further evaluation. Regards.
Avatar f tn I woke up this am with a sore throat. Felt like something in back of my throat. The roof of my mouth is white, and the uvula is swollen and almost touching the back of my tongue. I feel like I should keep swallowing. Never happened before. No new foods, meds, etc.
Avatar f tn You didn't say anything about your age, weight/build.. do you suffer from sleep apnea? How confident are you that you can tell (looking in a mirror?) if your uvula is swollen? I, an older person, have been told by a Pulmonary doctor that I have some minor blockage in the throat, I don't recall the uvula being mentioned.
Avatar f tn I had my tonsils removed over 2 weeks ago and well my uvula is still swollen and I am not able to eat much. I wish I can fast forward 2 months in the future to get the swelling down. I so understand your position though. What I have heard from others is that it can take months for the uvula to get back into proper psition. Hang in there. All the best. If you are still uncertain then maybe see the ENT who did the surgery to explain things.
Avatar f tn However through the night last night I could feel my throat getting worse and worse and then thismorning I had really difficulty in talking and even just swallowing a drink. I felt like my throat was closing up and I could feel my uvula sitting on my tongue. And after looking in the mirror I could clearly see that my uvula was very red and swollen. And the rest of my throat very red too. I havent noticed any white spots on the back of my throat.
Avatar f tn i have a visible growth on my throat just after my uvula it's the same color as the uvula i took a video of it using my phone . I am 20 years old male never smoked or drink but i always had a problem with constantly clearing my throat when in a dusty place my throat from when i was a child check out the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?
Avatar n tn Immediately after I noticed my throat was very sore (for obvious reasons). I shined a light into my throat and my uvula (dangly thing at the back of throat) was extremely red and had what looked like a cut or slice into it. I didn't think much of it and after a day or so the pain went away, as well as the cut. Here I am today, and for the last 3 to 4 days I have been having flu like symptoms...achy skin, always tired, and bad stomach pains and pretty severe diarrhea.
Avatar f tn I have had a sometimes severe sore throat for over a month. Had a scope put down my throat and the doctor says everything is normal....no growths, nodules, infection, etc. He suggested that maybe I had a virus and to come back in 6 weeks if the pain was still there and then he would repeat the procedure to see if there was a change. The pain does lessen sometimes but then comes back with a vengence. Mostly it is on the right side and, of course, the ears are also involved.
Avatar f tn Behind where my tonsils used to be is something like a skin flap, but on one side it goes down from the very base of the uvula, but on the other side, it goes down from a bit lower, about half way down from the back of the uvula, so the opening to my throat/distance from skin to uvula is almost twice as big on the one side, and the uvula is being pulled to the other side by that bigger skin flap. Why is that happening? Did the doctors cut more skin on one side?
