I have had a persistent sore throat and now it feels like there is a sore where my wisdom teeth were once. I have a very hard time swallowing?

In brief: Needs evaluation

Anytime there is difficulty swallowing, you must seek a physician's care.
This may be a serious infection or even worse. If there is trouble breathing, go to nearest emergency dept. Or call 911. There are many questions to ask and be answered, seek care so you can get appropriate treatment quickly.
