I Have Frequent Sharp Sore Throat With Tastes Of Blood That Comes And Goes Within Hours Ie My Throat Will Feel Normal After Is This Common
I have frequent sharp sore throat with tastes of blood that comes and goes within hours. I.E. My throat will feel normal after. Is this common?
No, ENT Dr can check: People normally do not have frequent sore throats with the taste of blood. A primary care or an ENT doctor can check for causes. Maybe there is some infection/inflammation in the sinuses that occasionally is oozing some blood. Maybe there is a spot in the throat that is friable (scratches or damages easily such as after swallowing cookies or crackers). Ent doctors can see with a fiber-optic scope. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Spleen 2cm swollen. Normal blood work. Had mono 8 months ago.
Glands a swollen on neck but have sore throat. Can mono re-activate?
Insignificant: I would consider your findings insignificant in the scheme of things. There is more than one agent that can trigger a mono like syndrome & that amount of speanic change is not that impressive, whether found by a good physical exam or other means.The CDC debunked the idea of a "chronic" mono more than a decade ago. You likely acquired another viral illness that will pass. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Woke up w/ sore throat so i gargled with salt water. There's a little blood in the mucus from the back of my throat. Is this normal?
Yes.: I would say that in context that you don't have more symptoms that stated. The mucous dries up the very superficial (to the surface) blood vessels in the back of the nose and the throat that they pop and cause some blood that people can taste on waking up. Take care of the sore throat and enjoy your turkey. ...Read more

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.
