For years I have had rare cases of strange, sudden outbursts of extreme, sharp pain in my throat/lymph nodes when swallowing that last ~10 mins. Help?
Unusual: Perhaps a variant of Glossopharyngeal Neuralgia can cause only a rare pain. GN is a rare condition and would tend to reoccur on a daily basis and then subside for months or years. I don't think esophageal spasm would give isolated throat pain in absence of other swallowing symptoms. You should get an opinion from an ENT specialist to see if he/she can come up with a diagnosis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Help please! when i swallow i feel a sharp pain in the right side of my throat and it hurts for a lil then stops only when i swallow what is that?
Throat pain: At your age it is likely due to postnasal drip. I would check for allergies . Have you had a recent cold? It could also be an infection if you have any other signs a symptoms. I would first try an over the counter antihistamine if that does not help see your primary care doctor and they will help sort out the issue. This is not likely a serious problem. Good luck! ...Read more

Sharp pain in 1 spot in throat for 3 months. Dr checked with camera, said all normal. Worsens at night. Hurts when swallowing and talking. Please help?
Pain: So just like everything, camera's don't see it all and that is where imaging like CT scan or MRI would be helpful. Also if pain worsens at night (meaning laying down??) this can be due to the weight of one structure against another (like lymph node against a boney structure). See a specialist (ENT) if you haven't already. ...Read more
