Keep getting extremely sore throat/ear pain 2months after tonsillectomy. Kills to swallow/talk. Is this normal?? How can I get relief

Unusual

Pain
Pain after tonsillectomy usually resolves after 4 weeks. You should see your ENT doctor about this. Maybe there is another problem.

Dr. Mark C. Loury answered:

I always suffer from sore throat and inflammation that cause ear pain and difficulty in swallowing. When I make RPS it becomes high as 14.9.

Be concerned

Neck-throat
Not sure what RPS is. The presence of throat pain radiating to the ear can mean an infection, throat ulcer, tumor, neuralgia, thyroid inflammation or tumor, vocal cord arthritis, etc. With your symptoms I assume the worst so suggest ENT exam of throat.

Dr. David S. Kam answered:

I've sore throat, mucus, slight ear pain when swallowing mucus. No trouble swallowing. Used to smoke 1-2 cigs/day for 2.5 yr. Do I have cancer?

Unlikely

Sore_throat
Your young age and a short stint of smoking makes it unlikely. However, there is an increasing rate of head and neck cancer in young people related to human papilloma viruses probably related to oral sex. See an ENT doctor for complete examination.

Sore throat feels like razor blades when swallowing, yellow spot, headache, ear pain face hot fingers cold. Same issue 2 wks ago. What could be wrong?

Acute pharyngitis?

Sore_throat
This sounds like an acute upper respiratory infection, but the best way in which to diagnose and manage this would be to start by seeing your local primary care physician. Hope you are better soon.

Ear pain and also feeling "full",runny stuffy nose, congested, cough, sore throat, swollen lymph nodes, & now slight jaw pain when swallowing. Advice

Dentist now!

Head-jaw
Do not wait! There are so many symptoms that you are describing. Start with your dentist or get a good referral. From that visit a determination will be made as to treatment by either that provider or a referral to an Oral Surgeon or an ENT or an Endodontist.
