Discomfort in my throat and upper chest. Not a sore throat, but a different pain. Feels achey maybe? Amoxiciilan didn't work. Possible causes? Been months

Throat chest pain: Greetings. Lot of possible causes are present. I would question muscular skeletal sources. Do you lift a lot? Carry heavy back pack or purse? Lift weights? Ibuprofen is a good start with food. Take the med for 10-14 days. This should provide relief and reduce inflammation. If shortness of breath, sweats or radiation to your back / neck occurs then see your doctor. May need additional testing. GL

Dx few yrs back with mulitnodular goiter, recently developed sore throat, with pain in throat and upper chest upon swallowing, could the 2 be related?

Possible: Depends on how big the gland was originally. If it's been a long time since you have it rechecked, now would be the time. It's possible that your current symptom is thyroid related, although unlikely.

I have a fever and below normal temperature, sore throat and I am coughing up blood tinged phlegm. Pain inside right upper chest.?

I have a fever and below normal temperature, sore throat and I am coughing up blood tinged phlegm. Pain inside right upper chest.?

Depends: An md consult would not be out of order at your age. It is likely pharyngitis or bronchial spasms secondary to a moderate respiratory infection or even allergies. If irritated enough by coughing, a small amount of blood could look more foreboding mixed in with phlegm or saliva. By the way fever= higher temperature. Feel better!

Pain in ear, throat and upper chest. Severe, burning and sharp stabbing. Only lasted a minute or two. Ear felt full. Scary and weird. Came on suddenly?

See an Otologist: If the ear and side of pain were the same as your history of facial nerve decompression which was done through the ear and mastoid you need to see an ENT doc. In the meantime take ibuprofen 400mg every 6 hours

Burning in upper chest, neck, and into arms for over a week. Is this a symptom of herpes?

Burning in upper chest, neck, and into arms for over a week. Is this a symptom of herpes?

Explanation: Burning sensation can be caused by herpes. But, my opinion, that this is something else because your area of burning are large, and you need evaluation by doctor. And herpes will be visible within one week.

Rotator Cuff: Sounds like you are suffering from a tendonitis/strain in one of your Rotator cuff tendons!! Upper chest muscle strain may also be playing a role in your symptoms. SURFING will do it!!! Rest and take anti-inflammatory medications for a while. See a Physical Medicine DOC Physiatrist who can analyze what you are doing while surfing to strain your shoulder/upper chest Hope this helps Dr Z

Please... is there anything over-the-counter that will soothe a severe sore throat and burning in my chest?

No: Sounds like you have bronchitis. You can use any of the OTC decongestants like Mucinex (guaifenesin) but most likely you need to be evaluated by a doctor and may need antibiotics plus a prescription medicine for the discomfort.
