Need neuro exam: I don't know what to exactly make of the clicking sound you hear when you swallow but numbness and tingling in the face should be evaluated and preferably by a neurologist if your primary is unable to show anything of significance in the bloodwork. Cheers! ...Read more

Hello doctor, i have a sharp feeling in my throat, it hurts alot to swallow, I have a sore throat also. Do i need an xray?

No X-Ray: For a chronic sore throat, the most important thing is to have a detailed history and physical exam with an otolaryngologist. This also will include a fiber-optic laryngoscopy to look down your throat and help determine the source of your problem. Imaging like x-rays are of little use. Sometimes a barium swallow or modified swallow study is helpful to further evaluate things. ...Read more

Sore throat,lethargy, x3 days. ok to breathe/swallow,neg strep & xray, fast pulse. ER gave steroids & motrin for visible epiglottis. Should i worry?

Sore throat: I'm not sure how they saw your epiglottis in the ER, but if they think you have epiglottitis, you should have been hospitalized. Do you have fever? you are likely dehydrating which may cause the fast pulse. Strep is only one test. Were you tested for infectious mono? if there is suspicion of epiglottitis (low prob given no dyspnea or dysphagia) I would suggest coverage for HIB. See your PCP. ...Read more

I had 2 chest x-ray days apart and blood test x-rays are clear they listen sound clear they found nothing I have tickle in throat with little cough?

I had 2 chest x-ray days apart and blood test x-rays are clear they listen  sound clear  they found nothing I have tickle in throat with little cough?

Question?: I presume you are asking for a diagnosis of the cause of tickle and cough. The chest X-rays & exam of the lungs are normal, as expected, since the problem is likely in your throat. Did anyone check a throat swab? Have you tried warm salt/sugar water gargles? If symptoms persist, see an ENT, but most of the time, it's viral or allergic causes that lead to these symptoms & it goes away on its own. ...Read more
