In brief: Throat still sore?

If your throat is still sore 4 weeks later, you need to see a doctor as soon as possible.
I am not sure why drinking caused it, although with very heavy drinking, people fall asleep and get acid reflux, which gets down into their trachea because alcohol intoxication suppresses cough reflex.
