I've had a tight, strained throat off/on with severe fatigue for several years. Doc says throat looks ok, but it's hard to talk. What should I do?

Mixed symptoms: These symptoms may not necessary be related. See an otolaryngologist for your throat. He/she may use a scope to evaluate your vocal cords thoroughly. Fatigue has multiple potential causes including anemia, diabetes, hypothyroidism, sleep apnea, autoimmune disorders, chronic infections, neoplasia, etc. You should have an evaluation with an internist.

Wisdom teeth: Discomfort after removal of wisdom teeth is often dependent on how much bone was removed, the location of the teeth and whether they were vertical or horizontal. Some discomfort is normal, and may take several weeks to be totally pain free. Make sure you return to the surgeon for any scheduled post-op appointments. If you are having a problem, check with your surgeon.

I have tightness in my throat and I have hard time saying "n" or "h" words because it puts to much strain on my throat. I stutt. sometimes too. Why?

Very difficult to: answer. Do you have a lot of anxiety. This may be a driving force. Stuttering is a very complex issue with multiple issues affecting it. I might suggest for you to see an ENT physician to make sure you are alright physically then get a referral to speech pathologist.

Can you strain a muscle in the throat at ballgame?

Can you strain a muscle in the throat at ballgame?

Yes--hoarseness: Your larynx--voice box and vocal cords are made of many small muscles and excesive/loud screaming at a ballgame can cause trauma/inflammation leading to hoarseness etc..Som have fun, but take it easy. Hoarseness from such cause usually resolves in few days with voice rest/fluids etc...If it persists, consult your doc. Good luck.

Straight line red bumps on middle back wall of throat going down pharynx.they turn white when i strain throat and back to red when i leave it. causes?

Straight line red bumps on middle back wall of throat going down pharynx.they turn white when i strain throat and back to red when i leave it. causes?

The Thin Red Line: Hey! You could take that on the road! All you'll need is a gigantic magnifying glass... What you're doing when you strain like that is to impede the blood flow to your head. Do it long enough and you'll faint. Those red bumps are probably lymph tissue, like smaller tonsil tissue that fights infection. So maybe you're throat is fighting an infection. Hard to say, you did not describe any symptoms.

Is it possible to detect the strain of a strep infection from blood tests?I can't stand the throat culture.Having high aso titers for years

Is it possible to detect the strain of a strep infection from blood tests?I can't stand the throat culture.Having high aso titers for years

Man up!: You smoke cigarettes but can't stand to have your throat swabbed? Here's what's at issue. You're not going to know if you have a strep throat unless you get a culture or at least a rapid strep screen. If strep throat is present and not treated, your heart can end up ruined. If it's not present and is overtreated with antibiotics, you're risking weeks of diarrhea, or worse. Ask 4 a topical numb rx.

Arnold neuralgia on the left has anything to do with the external jugular vein strain? When this happens my throat tighten and feel bites and nu air

Arnold neuralgia on the left has anything to do with the external jugular vein strain? When this happens my throat tighten and feel bites and nu air

No: Arnold's neuralgia is also known as occipital neuralgia and no association to external jugular vein. Their is no entity as jugular vein strain but maybe language barrier in play here. This neuralgia consists of pain in upper neck, head and behind eyes. The tightening in the throat may be more related to the anxiety you have with the onset of symptoms rather than the neuralgia. I hope this helps.

The top part of my tongue has felt strained for two week.  I have sleep apnea. It feels like my tongue is back in my throat when awake trouble swallow?

Macroglossia?: You may have a disease condition leading to enlargement of your tongue . This by itself may cause sleep apnea. You need to consult your doctor to verify if this is indeed the case. After which you may be referred to an oral surgeon to get a biopsy to look for the cause . Don't delay a day longer.
