Everytime I drink a can of cold coke my throat jerks feels like a hiccup but it isn't. What could cause this?

Do not drink it: You may have a mild allergic reaction. As a doctor who believes in prevention and healthy life style I do not recommend any soda. It's very acidic drink by itself but it's sweetened by cuprous amount of sugar(12 tsp). It's very unhealthy option. I personally a big believer of natural water. To make it tasty you can add citrus fruit , cucumber or mint. ...Read more

My throat and head hurt really bad. Hurts to swallow. Have some drainage from my nose into my throat. What is going on with me? Is it a cold or strep?

Flu, strep, mono etc: Nose and throat symptoms can be from flu/cold viruses, strep throat, allergies, etc., except that allergies usually don't cause fever. Flu causes fever. Doctors have a 5-minute test for strep, and a 15-minute test for Flu A and B. Mono is caused by the EBV virus, and can be tested for. Strep throat is common, so one will have to see a doctor to get tested, get diagnosed (and antibiotics if strep). ...Read more

Oral Sex: Oral sex is a very common and normal part of the human sexual experience. There is, in general, no health concerns from the act itself. There are, of course, the usual std worries, but oral sex alone does not cause any health concerns. The 'slimy' throat you document is also probably normal for you given how your salivary glands respond to this activity. ...Read more
