Friday I had a terrible fever, nausea, sore throat. I don't have my to tonsils or adenoids. Now my throat has sharp pain, feels like something stuck ?

Dr. can check throat: New throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep throat). A couple days of throat lozenges and Tylenol (acetaminophen) can decrease throat pain. ...Read more

I have the flu-have been coughing for 3 days now. Everytime i swallow i feel like there's a huge lump in my throat-did i damage my vocal  chords?

Not likely . . .: It's not likely that you damaged your vocal cord from coughing as long as you can talk & sing as you've always done. The throat is a fairly large area so it's difficult to figure out what's going on when you describe a lump w/o stating where on your throat. Most likely, you have a lump on one side of your jaw or the other, or perhaps one one side of the neck or the other, suggesting swollen glands. ...Read more

See GI doctor: You may have esophagitis (inflammation of the esophagus) due to acid reflux. There's a small possibility you have a condition called eosinophilic esophagitis if you've had recurrent episodes of food getting stuck, especially soft solids (like rice, pasta, breads, etc). Best way to diagnose this is with an upper endoscopy. ...Read more
