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.
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!

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.

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.

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.)
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.
