Thread: Burning Sore Throat

  1. #1

    Default Burning Sore Throat

    It's past 2:30 in the morning where I am, but it looks like I might not get any sleep tonight. Earlier this evening my throat started feeling scratchy, not really in a ''sick'' way, more like an ''allergies'' way. Took a Zyrtec, no help, drank some hot lemon tea, not a whole lot of help either. So I took ibuprofen, which has helped with the pain some, and tried a cold drink instead, but I'm still too nervous to go to sleep, lest I feel even worse when I wake up. I've had my fair share of horrible sore throats before.

    Take care dear,

    Didn't sleep. Going to the hospital to see if they'll give me a shot of the painkiller they've given me for sore throats before.

    I don't recall that I've heard of getting an injected form of a pain reliever for sore throat before - even with strep, the injection I got was an antibiotic... that said, it certainly did very much help to relieve the pain too...

    I just wonder, with the frequency of sore throats you seem to have... have you seen an ENT (Ear Nose & Throat) specialist, to check for a potential underlying issue, that might make you more susceptible to sore throats?

    Anyway, I hope that you are feeling better now, Kimba!

    Do you still have your tonsils and adenoids? I had an awful time with sore throats and infections until they were taken out at age 12. Problem solved. Surgery "just because" is a bad thing, but if that is the problem it should be obvious to a doctor.

    I insist on getting it injected because I have a terrible time trying to swallow pills, and liquid meds tend to make me gag and vomit because of the bad taste. I practically had to fight with the doctor's assistant to get it too; she was saying they didn't do IVs unless it was absolutely necessary; I didn't really know there was a difference between getting it in an IV and getting it in a shot, and she finally said I could have it in a shot - which they gave me in the butt.

    I have seen an ent before, but for issues regarding fluid build-up in my ear. I wouldn't say I get sick more than the average person, but when I get a sore throat, I get it bad.

    Still have them. The doctor's assistant asked if I did and said something about them being small.

    Well my throat isn't as bad, my nose is a combination of stuffy and a little runny, I have chills, and I can't tell if I'm hungry or if my stomach hurts. (I thoroughly detest vomiting.)

    At least they checked. If that were the problem, the assistant would have noticed. Guaranteed.

    I'm glad it may be getting better. At first, I wondered if you had strep, but I'm sure they checked for that. It sounds like you react poorly to either colds or irritants to the throat.
