Could a toothache also cause you to have a sore throat at the same time?

Could a toothache also cause you to have a sore throat at the same time?

Yes: But before any conclusions are made, it is prudent to understand that the causes of sore throat are many, and an advanced infection in only one of them, and probably low on the list of probability. You should have the toothache investigated, and probably consider the sore throat to be an independent problem. ...Read more

Adenovirus?: Certain types of adenovirus -- one of the common respiratory viruses that causes common colds -- can cause urethritis (urethral infection) along with upper respiratory infection. It's not at all dangerous and will clear up on its own. See your doctor if things don't improve in a few days. ...Read more

I have a sore throat more so itchy then sore, any advice and for the first time I can actually see my epiglottis I was  alarmed at first until I resea?

Many possibilities: The most likely possibilities are allergic reactivity (esp if you live in the southeast), and viral infection. Bottom line: if you have a fever (temp over 100-101F), then see your PCP. Otherwise your symptoms should resolve within a week. If not see your PCP. ...Read more

I had oral sex for the first time with a very experienced guy and now I have a sore throat could I have gonorrhea?

I had oral sex for the first time with a very experienced guy and now I have a sore throat could I have gonorrhea?

Probably not : I assume it was fairly recent and gonorrhea would not show up immediately. Most likely you have traumatized your throat. You should be more in control of depth and speed and not let the guy force you or be rough. Gargle with warm salt water and avoid additional trauma and if your throat does not feel better in a few days than see a doctor. Also, you should be tested for stds on a regular basis. ...Read more

Urinary infection: You definitely need to be seen by a doctor. With the urinary frequency and back pain, I'm certain that you have a urinary infection. The question is, how much of the urinary tract is involved - as these infections can go upwards from the bladder into the body. That's why it needs evaluation. Your sore throat could relate to that or something else (circumstances of how you got the UTI). ...Read more

Please help! I have a sore throat only when i swallow that is accompanied by neck pain the same time i swallow.?

Please help! I have a sore throat only when i swallow that is accompanied by neck pain the same time i swallow.?

A could of ideas.: I would certainly say that you have not provided enough information to come to a diagnosis. Given your age, i doubt that degenerative disease/arthritis is to blame. The most common issue that could cause some chronic symptoms that you have would be allergies with post-nasal drip which can cause some persistent sore throat. I might recommend seeing your primary care physician. ...Read more

Every time i get sick I have a problem with my asthma or get bronchitis. I am losing my voice and have a sore throat. What can I do to prevent it?

Hand hygiene : A viral infection (especially the rhinovirus associate with colds) often triggers asthma attack. A practical way to reduce exposure to the virus is by cleansing your hands with soap or a gel after touching door knobs, faucets, phone etc which other people have come into contact with. This must be done each and every time. ...Read more

Chronic fatigue: It sounds like you have chronic fatigue - which may arise from a number of different diseases. I would recommend that you get checked for EBV- or 'mono'. That's a common cause and can have sore throat associated with it. There are a host of other conditions too that should be checked for... Best to make an appointment with a doctor so you can be THOROUGHLY evaluated. Hope you feel better soon. ...Read more

I gave my boyfriend a blow job for the first time almost a week ago and i still have a sore throat and coughing a lot. He has no STD what happened?

Probable aspiration: It's possible you may have got some oral secretions (saliva) into your airways from this activity. Your reflex would be to cough -and I suspect that has made your throat a little bit raw and painful. If you don't have fever, troublesome cough, or significant pain - then I expect you to get better on your own. If you have any doubts though, see a doctor. They can check the back of your throat/lungs ...Read more

I have a sore throat and a cough.I also have a runny nose.I am dizzy at times.

Virus: Most often symptoms of sore throat, cough, runny nose and dizziness are caused by a respiratory virus. The body's immune system will usually fight off the infection in a few days to a week. To make yourself feel better in the mean time, drink plenty of water, rest, take over the counter cold medication such as tylenol cold and flu, mucinex, cough drops. ...Read more
