Probably see your MD: Usually infections such as viruses or tonsillitis involve BOTH sides of your throat. If this has been going on for more than 2-3 weeks, you really should have a doctor examine your throat. This is especially true if you use any tobacco products. It may be something simple, but a sore throat on one side that lasts more than a couple weeks needs to be checked out with an exam. ...Read more

Woke up this morning and both sides of my throat hurt. When i press them they hurt not when i swallow or cough. Only when touched or when i turn head?
Probably infection: Exactly where is uncertain. The lymph nodes of the upper neck may swell with irritation/inflammation of the throat, teeth, tongue, gums, skin of the face and some of the scalp. Often mild viral infections of the upper respiratory tract (colds) produce swelling of these nodes without much other symptomatology. Salt water gargles, Acetaminophen may help. ...Read more

Why does my throat hurt on right side when i yawn. Not sore rest of time and i don't have a cold?
Yawning hurts: Best to have an exam of your throat to be sure there are no sores or masses. But, if it only hurts when you yawn, this sounds like muscle spasm due to some irritant. I would suspect you are experiencing reflux of acid up into your throat when you're sleeping. Go see an ENT for a complete exam. ...Read more

I have an irritated tonsil, postnasal drip, and throat pain on one side. I've had it for almost a month & my strep test was negative. What could it be?
URI: Upper respiratory infection, involves nasal cavity, sinuses, pharynx (including tonsils and adenoids), strep test can rule out only strep infection, but there are other bacteria/viruses which harbor the area and cause such symptoms, kindly see your doctor or ENT specialist for a second look/opinion. Meanwhile use salt water gargles, saline nasal washes, and pain killers, best wishes ...Read more
I have a sore neck on both sides and can hardly turn my head. Nothing else hurts and i had no trauma. Should i be worried? It started with the typical "inside the back of my throat" pain. When that went away after about 4 days i thought it was over. Then
After : After a throat infection, some patients get enlargement of their lymph nodes, causing a sore neck (lymphadenopathy). Advil or tylenol (acetaminophen) and plenty of fluids, and possibly a warm pack, often help. If a patient had headache, fever, feels sick, or has a rash then they should have a medical evaluation, but otherwise the lymphadenopathy usually subsides on its own. ...Read more
