Forum Name: Ear Nose and Throat

Question: Throat Pain / Swallowing


TexanRick - Fri Jul 01, 2005 5:11 am

(hopefully a reply in this forum)
Hello. Please advise me. I have had a sharp pain in my
throat for about 7 days, but doesn't feel like strept
throat. It is painful to touch although it is lessening,
but not too painful to swallow. I had UPP surgery for
snoring about four years ago so I have no tonsils. The pain
is four fingers from the voice box on my left side.(thing
that moves up and down when you swallow).

Symptoms:
1. Sharp pain four fingers to the left side of voice box
(larynx).

2. Mild Fever. It is 99. 0.

3. Mild Headaches at temple come and go, lasting a few
seconds.

4. Worse at night when I sleep, I feel ears getting
plugged. Mild earache on left side.

5. Worse when I turn head to right and swallow.

6. When I swallow with head straight, virtually no pain.

7. When I walk in dress shoes, every step causes a pain in
the throat area.

8. No congestion. No nasal drips. No Coughing. No phlegm.

9. A little bit tired.

What could it be? Is it the thyroid gland? Or is it the
esophogus? Wouldn't a viral or bacterial infection be
accompanied by Fever and congestion. I have no congestion.

Please help.

Your symptoms don't sound typical for any obvious illness, there is no way for us to speculate on that, I'm sorry. Please see a doctor for an evaluation.
