If its been happening for 2 weeks I think its time to go to the doctor. I had an occasional sore throat for a week and went to the doctor and got antibiotics; of course, we are right in the middle of spring where we live so it may have all been allergy related...as soon as I got off the antibiotics some of my symptoms returned so I had to start taking my allergy pills and am finally getting better but that's going to be short lived as everything starts blooming here.

3 weeks now. Went to the doctor, she looks in my mouth for 2 seconds and prescribles hydro codone syrup. That was a week ago. Wake up in the middle of the night because my throat is killing me last night. I cant even drink coffee today it hurts to bad to swallow. Waiting for Doctor to call me back

Bunch of nurses at my work tell me to find a new doctor, they said she should have done a throat culture. They say maybe its strep mayb its my tonsils

I would be checked for Acid Reflux and Beret disease it can run into an agressive Cancer.I have it and Doctors weren't going to treat it I would have been dead by now if I hadn't changed Doctors.

I was the same as you couldn't swallow,my wife kept accusing me of not chewing my food well but this wasn't the problem.

It seeems to have gone away after 3 weeks. I was prescribed anti biotics but chose not to take them because last time i had to take anti biotics i was sick for a long time.

Get tested for a Hiatal Hernia......that is what I have, and it is the main cause of my reflux.

I had Barretts and just had my last endo a couple weeks ago. Doc says Barretts is gone. I am not going to worry about it anymore, and I did have acid reflux although I never felt it. I also took Advil like candy for too many years (for arthritis) and I don't do that anymore.
