Sore Throat From Kissing

May 7, 2013

I haven't been together with my ex boyfriend for over a year now but everytime we kissed, I would without fail get a sore throat about a day later which would then usually turn into an infection. I thought it might just be something to do with him but this weekend (after not kissing anybody for about 7 months) I kissed this new guy and....2 days later I have an awful sore throat, glands up etc! I'm quite depressed about it as I'm thinking, is this going to happen every time I kiss somebody?

Sore Throat :: Swollen Tonsils, Lump In Throat, Clear Mucus, Sore, Headache

My tonsils have been swollen for over a month, until last week they were painless, but now I have flu symptoms. Its quite scary, it affects my swallowing and I have a very very dry mouth, even when I drink loads of water all day. Hasn't affected my breathing as of yet, but feels like a lump in my throat is blocking it off.

This has been going for three days now.

Doctor said I need a blood test for glandular fever, which is next week.

I mentioned that I think I can feel my epiglottis swollen, and she laughed and said that is all the way down by my adam's apple and would have a job feeling that... even though i've seen many cases online where it's visible above the tongue and often can be felt.

Sore Throat :: Sore Throat, Overall Ill Feeling No Diagnosis

sore throat,fatigue, pain, no diagnosis Posted 10 minutes ago I'm sorry for the long post but I really need some help. I am 25 years old,female from Bulgaria. Everything started after 2 shots of progesterone done by my gyno. I had high prolactin levels and somewhat low progesterone and my period stopped so that is why she gave me shots. After the second shot I woke up with very bad pain and burning sensations in my sinuses,my whole body was in pain.And there it all begins.For 2 weeks I wasn't getting better, I had a fever (not very high),sinus pain and sore throat. Finally I visited a ENT doctor,she said that there was nothing wrong with me,everything-ears,nose throat looked fine but I asked for a sinus x-ray-it was also fine. Then my gyno advised me to culture my throat and nose. The results were staphylococcus aureus in nose and Moraxella catarrhalis in throat. I was prescribed cefpodoxime (due to antibiogram) took it for several days and I wasn't feeling any better,then my dr switched me to Cefuroxime,it did help at the beginning,I was feeling better but by the time I was taking my last pill all the symptoms returned. My sinuses didn't hurt anymore but my throat was on fire,muscle and joint pain,feverish feeling but no actual fever this time. So I was put on unasyn (Sultamicillin) on IV drip.I was getting no relief and was just feeling very sick from that med,so we stopped it. The I went to another ENT doctor and he told me there was nothing wrong with me, my throat looked fine and I had a little wound in my nose with blood. I had no runny nose. So I did a culture of my throat again and it happened to be Candida Glabrata ( may be because of all those antibiotics) I also had e.coli in my urine.I took one dose of Fosfomycin for my e.coli and it cleared up and I was put on IV  drip again with fluconazole for my candida.I also had candida in my vaginal results. I started to get better on fluconazole but again it lasted 3 days and in the end of the treatment I was ill again. My ears started to hurt very badly,all other symptoms continued.I waited 2 weeks after the last antibiotic and did a nose and throat culture again in two different labs and there was no infection found, I also did a vaginal and urine tests again and the urine was fine, had some enterococcus faecalis but in small amounts from my vag microbiology. My gyno said that it is better to not treat it for now because of all the meds I took for those 2 months. Yes,it's been two months and I am only getting worse, my whole body is in pain,I am very fatigued,have the flu feeling sore throat, ear pain,lymph and joint pain,I feel very very ill. And the tests say nothing. On my blood test the only thing that was abnormal was my AST  (antistreptolysin-titer) levels were high 310 (from 200 being the norm).Went to a 3rd ENT,he also said everything looked fine, my ears and throat are not inflamed and he said that it wasn't my ears that hurt but my face joints. So I am here,desperate for ome help, not getting better,not knowing what to do now.I started having very bad panic attacks because I think I am dying and no one can find what is that illness. Can it be some autoimmune response to the progesterone shots? I don't know anymore. It's a struggle to get out of bed really.

Sore Throat Due To Hyperthyroidism

I have what feels like a sore throat but further down my throat. It comes and goes but it's more late afternoon when it comes on. I don't want to eat as it feels like my food is stuck or talk because it's so sore but when I wake up it's ok? I went to doctors Last week they reduced my beta blockers because I was so zapped out. I mentioned my throat but he wasn't concerned and barely looked. He seemed miffed that the specialist mentioned I need to be careful about sore throats due to thyroid med and white blood cells. He was annoyed about having a blood test. Dr hasn't rung back so I guess that's ok but is my throat normal problem for overactive thyroid.

Sore Throat - HIV Symptoms?

I am a male of 31 years of age. About 38 days before I had sex with a CSW. It was protected vaginal sex and protected oral sex. Also there were deep throat kissing which lasts almost minute. Since last 3 weeks I have sore throat and mild joint pain. No real fever. Some times during afternoon time temperature raise up to 37.2 degrees centigrade.

The sore throat was mild but was a one point pen like feeling. During disposing phlegm stain of blood coming out. Phlegm was green or yellow in color. I went to doctor and he tested chest X-ray and found no problem.

I tested HIV 3rd Generation antibody test after 19 days of exposure, which came negative.

My questions:

1. Are my symptoms related to ARS?

2. How much possibility to have HIV contraction through deep kissing?

3. What can be the cause of blood in the phlegm?

4. One ENT specialist told me that the partition of nose is little bended. Is there any relation with this and my symptoms?

5. I am feeling little week, but that I think mostly because of anxiety.

6. Is there any significance of my 19 days HIV test result?

Sore Throat For 6 Months

I have sore throat for around 6 months. I think it all started with some sort of allergy because I would only have it when I was at home, generally any dust would make it worse. I moved out and my throat stopped being so sore but its still bad.. I feel like it is very sensitive. I also feel like saliva/mucus is licking down the throat.. Sometimes it has a bad (sort of rotten.. taste) It gets worse if I drink something cold or hot or when I go outside when its cold (Because I only breath through my mouth). My doctor thought its post nasal dripping so she gave me some steroid drops, didn't help much. Now she thinks its a Glandular fever.. I don't have any other symptoms apart from sore throat, and mucus going down it. The only other thing is that my lymph nodes in neck feel a bit tender. Also sometimes I feel like im producing way too much saliva.Few times there was some white stuff on sides of my throat. And also rarely get some small difficulties with swallowing but I think this might be just caused by super stress that im going through... I am non-smoking person.

LPR And Constant Sore Throat

I am currently taking prilosec every day and zantac twice daily, but still having problems with a constant sore throat. I am good about avoiding trigger foods and have elevated my bed. I do eat something small before I go to bed because if I don't I can't sleep and become very nauseated. The throat is becoming more and more bothersome and is affecting my speech. I have played with DGL, marshmallow root, slippery elm, etc but trying to remember to swallow all these pills is ridiculous. My sleep is affected greatly because my stomach wakes me up every couple of hours with "hunger pains" that won't allow me to sleep. I know I am not hungry because I eat a very good diet.

When Is Best To Take PPI Drugs For LPR (for Sore Throat)

I have today seen an ENT surgeon who has confirmed that i have LPR (silent reflux) which is giving me a sore / burning throat and roof of my mouth.

My gp had me on ppi drugs but they hadn't been doing anything for my symptoms which the surgeon said they probably won't do a great deal for your throat as such which is why you’re probably not seeing much change in your throat problems, he has asked me to still keep taking them as he wants me to try and keep the acid build up down.

I don’t have any other symptoms apart from my throat / mouth issue.

He has asked me to just take gaviscon advance 3 times a day as well as the ppi drugs, the ppi half an hour before i eat and the gaviscon about half an hour after i eat and last thing before bed.

My main question though is when i am best taking my ppi drug, up to now i have always been taking it first thing in the morning, i am starting to think that specifically for my throat issues its probably related to night time, meaning i maybe best taking the ppi before bed to try and limit the reflux at that time?
