See your doctor: If there is persistent pain in your throat and pain with swallowing, see your doctor. If she can't take care of it, you may need to see an ENT doctor. Your problem can't be diagnosed without an examination. Other conditions, such as a peritonsillar abscess, will need to be ruled out.See 1 more doctor answer
Sore throat (neck area) hurts to swallow plus cough. Neck glands bigger on left side but right side is sore. How is that possible?
Pharyngitis/tonsilli: When you have infection in the tonsils or pharynx it is not uncommon to have lymph nodes in the neck. These nodes do not have to be the same size or consistency on both sides.
Acute Pharyngitis: Those are symptoms of acute pharyngitis/tonsilitis. The cause may be viral or bacterial. It is important to do a strep test as medication is required if positive.
Left-side sore throat for > 1 yr. Pain varies from gone to moderate. Doesn't hurt to swallow. Seen 3 ents & gi. Nose / throat scoped 2x, upper GI scope & 2 mris 3 mos apart - no diagnosis. Any ideas?
Tonsils?: Do you still have your tonsils? While they must have looked "normal" during scope I wonder if removal may help. Do certain foods exacerbate? Unilateral problem leads me to believe that it is a local problem as oppossed to a systemic problem. Nerve issue may be at play? Do pain meds alleviate the symptoms when they occur?See 1 more doctor answer
Extreme pain in my throat (left side) whenever I swallow anything it feels as though I'm swallowing glass. I know it isn't a sore throat. It only hurts on one side and especially when I swallow liquids.
I: I cannot tell you the cause of your pain. If you look back in your throat, or have someone else do this for you, and there is significant swelling on the the left side of your throat/ left tonsil and it looks like it is dripping pus or contains pus, that could be problematic. If that were the case, you would need to be promptly evaluated to ensure that you did not have a peritonsillar abscess (a painful pus filled inflammation of the tonsil or the nearby tissues in the throat).See 1 more doctor answer
Throat hurts on left side and left ear itches inside. Hurts to swallow and talk. Is it post nasile drip the cause. I have allergies...
Humidity: Buy a warm must humidifier and keep it next to ur bed every night. Costco has a good brand. Stop drinking soda and ice cold drinks after dark. Take warm / hot water baths before bed. Drink Chicken soup 2-3 times a day. See an allergist and find out what u r allergic to. If you can take curcumin which helps to modulate ur immunity, it could help ur allergies. Also eat at least 3 hrs before bedtime.
Sore throat on left side when swallowing which hurts in my ear aswell when I swallow. Ear feels blocked on left side too no white dots on tonsils?
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 lozenges and Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin can help lessen pain.

Throat hurts to swallow and the lymph nodes on the right side seem to be swollen. No other symptoms really. Best OTC meds? And what is possibly wrong?
Options: If you have a significantly sore throat w swollen tonsils / lymph nodes – see your medical provider & get a strep throat test & culture. Saltwater gargles are very helpful. Mix a teaspoon of salt in 8 oz of warm water – gargle with this several times a day. You can gargle with aloe vera juice a couple of times per day.
