Hi! i have a sore throat and whenever i swallow, my ears start to hurt! can someone help me?

Ulcer?

Encephalitis
People can get ulcers in the back of the throat, even where you can't see in the mirror. Swallowing makes them hurt and you can get ear pain, too, since the nerves for the ear and throat often send each other's signals to the brain by mistake. Get to an ENT so they can scope you to look at that part of the throat.

Have a chronic sore throat which hurts more when swallowing, and pain in my ears when swallowing. Also recurrent problems with fluid behind my eardrums, large tonsils and adenoids. Get surgery?

Allergies?

Sore_throat
You should be evaluated first by a physician to see if that's what you really need. It is possible the symptoms you are having could be caused by allergies. Of course you need a good exam and maybe surgery is the answer but I like to try the medical route before I take a patient to surgery.

Sick and very sore throat. Ear pops when I burp, cough or swallow ?

Congestion

Cough
It sounds like you have an upper respiratory infection which is causing nasal and upper airway congestion which is blocking off your eustacian tubes. This causes obstruction in the passage of air into the middle ear and leads to the popping sensation. It should get better as the infection runs it's course. An oral or nasal decongestant may give some short term relief.

I have a sore throat and it is hard to swallow making one of my ears sore?

Sore throat/strep?

Sore_throat
Although most sore throats are caused by swelling of the tissues due to viral infection you never know if a strep infection could be the cause. That doesn't mean EVERYBODY with a sore throat needs to get tested for strep but it does mean that if it is causing problems to the point of not being able to swallow and pain in the ear that a doctor should evaluate you for the next steps. All the best.

How do i get rid of my sore throat, cough, pain when swallowing food, and ear ache?

Sounds like a virus

Neck-throat
Time, rest, fluids, and patience will generally resolve thtese symptoms. If they persist, then it might be worth a visit to your doctor, but these are both incredibly common and entirely self-limited. Treat pain with acetaminophen or motrin, and try some warm tea for soothing your sore thorat.
