My Throat Aches
I have smoked once or twice a day for a year. I quit a week ago and my throat aches bad. Thinking about it makes it much worse. Worth stressing over?
Probable infection: 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 helpful. Mix a tsp of salt in 8 oz of warm water – gargle w this several times/day. You can gargle w aloe vera juice a couple of times per day.

I had an explosive sneeze with closed mouth. I know it might sound funny but now my throat aches terribly. Is it possible I have damaged something?
Not funny: Most important to leave mouth open and sneeze into your bent elbow/shoulder area. This prevents tremendous forces in your sinuses. You may have strained your posterior pharyngeal (throat) muscles and soft palate muscles . You can also cause tremendous pressure on your eyes with this kind of sneeze. Give it some rest and see your MD if it does not improve in a few days. Good Luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Sounds like spasm: What you are describing sounds like muscle spasm to me. The discomfort in your ear headaches and discomfort in your neck can be due to spasm and inflammation of muscle tissue.
