  • it kind of sounds like mine, I woke up one morning and it hurt to swallow and I looked in the mirror and my tonsils were huge and I had alot of white stuff on it and a couple days after that i started to get white stuff on the other tonsil. So im pretty sure i have strep thorat but the doctor say its just a sore throat but i dont think they know what they're talking about.

  • The MD is suppose to swab your throat and send it off to be tested for strep.

  • You probably have esophagitis. I have it bad. It sucks balls because everytime I drink alchahol it makes me feel like **** the next day. It started out exactly as you guys are explaining. It feels dry all of the time and like there's something caught behind your mouth. Do not smoke anything. I quit cigarettes and meth because if ****s up my throat ten times as bad as drinking does. The drinking is pretty heavy too. It's caused by acid reflux. Everytime you drink something really cold, over eat, or drink and eat some selected things your stomach will make like a ***k that kind of resembles the feeling of a hick up. Then the stomach acid actually burns your throat. It occurs most often when you sleep. So I reccomend that you try and catch it early as possible because now I have growths in the back of my throat and mouth. The aggitation can cause the skin cells to mutate which leads to Barett's Esophagus. It's kind of scary and supposed to never go away. I really need to get tested for it but I recently lost my job and have yet to see the doctor again. Take some prilosec or something for the reflux. Or if you can't afford the perscriprtion then you can always try the cheaper home remedy. Which contains 250 ml of water, and then adding 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinigar and 1 third teaspoon of baking powder to lower the ph level. It's not too bad if you just straight down that ****, but I'm still deciding how effective it is. Take it three times a day, 5 times a week. Regular vinigar works also, they're both pretty rank though. I'm about to post and ask if anyone knows how to soothe the throat. I can't find **** on google. Except manuka honey and some ancient oriental herbal remedy witch runs around 400 hundred bucks. If anyone decides to purchase it let me know because I am really tempted and I'd like a solid opinion on it.

  • That's old news for me. We have esophagitis which up until very recently I've been taking no medication for as long as it's run its coarse. No matter how tempted or distraught you may be, if you care about your body be sure to refuse smoking of any sort and alchohol including beer. When you can get a perscripton for acid reflux. For now you can just by some prylosec from Wal-Mart. I mean this whole thing good be a little early to call but, it's almost a sure thing and defenite if you find youself making a strange involuntary hickuping of sort after you drink anything cold (Especially milk) or eating anything really greasy or spicy. Good luck, my life's gone to ***l:)

  • its apparently called Gastroesophageal reflux disease and can either be nothing at all, or very serious. It has been linked to HIV, I think I have it, although I was smoking from a shish pipe recently so that could be causing the symptoms.

  • Most surely seems like that ... I'm just 17 and I've had that **** forever now ... I only recently discovered it, took some medication, though not for nearly enough time as it was quite expensive .... 30 euro the pack or something.Anyway ... one shouldn't drink anything fizzy or cold, definetly no smoking(or standing in a too smoked room like a small cafe), no orange juice, no VINEGAR thats right it only activates the juices more. Also in order to balance the stomach acid one shouldn't eat after 19 PM. That's pretty much it. If one isn't careful ... well its the dry throat, the white things on your tongue, and finally when acid does come to your throat and reacts with your saliva some really weird looking stuff is formed like small lumps. If one continues to be careles... well i lost my voice for a month once, and felt like a have a ping-pong ball in my throat every time i swallowed. It really is horrible, so better start the diet, if you can't afford the pills. Go see a Ears-Nose-Throat doctor if possible and ask him about reflux.Good luck everyone

  • I may have the same issue, although it isn't just that. It has been bothering me for about 2 months now. Essentially the issue is my throat feels a bit dry, like I need to continually swallow to solve the problem. The issue with that is that it doesn't solve it. It feels like I have a dry spot on the left side of my throat. I am stretching my throat muscles, like if your throat was really dry, but I do it all day over and over, then my throat gets tired. And then, when I swallow, it feels like it isn't working right. Sometimes, it makes that noise that your throat makes if you move it with your hand, the somewhat clicking noise? I don't know, I can't describe it. Any input would be great.

  • I've had a dry throat every day for the past few months, with sinus congestion and breathing trouble. I used smokeless tobacco on and off for less than a year, but then quit a couple of months ago. It should have went away by now, right?

  • I too have a dry throat, it feels like it's coming from my nasal passages as well, it also makes it feel like i have something stuck in the back of my throat and makes it hard to swallow!Last year i had a panic attack/anxiety attack, a couple of weeks after i experienced shortness of breath all of the time and that i thought there was something stuck at the back of my throat but was connected to my nasal passage.I took some special Nasal Drops in which my mother too uses for her nose problems, it soon cleared the problem within two weeks and cleared out my nose, i don't really want to use them again as they're vial and i don't know if i've actually got those nose problems again!I've only just had another Panic attack/anxiety attack a couple of weeks ago and i've found it hard getting back better but i'm finally there, i've had bad indigestion in the past couple of weeks as well, anyway, i seem to have a dry throat for the past three days, i've been sneezing A BIT (Meaning, just a few times, not majorly, just a couple of times a day), it feels as if there is something stuck at the back of my throat which is connected to my nasal passage, i also have two Mouth Ulcers (although i think my girlfriend passed them on to me, as she told me she had them before she came round!)Should i re-take my nasal drops or just pull it down to a cold, the thing is, i only get this dry feeling and feeling in the back of my throat at night time or when i start to worry, i can eat anything and it doesn't affect me, it's just at night time when i find it hard to swollow!(Sorry i wrote so much, but the more information i write down, the more it will help other people, who are suffering the same as me!)

So im pretty sure i have strep thorat but the doctor say its just a sore throat but i dont think they know what they're talking about.was probably tonsillitus-pretty much the same as strep (with same sort of symptoms) just not as dangerous i guess. random fever? spreads down throat with naseau n stomache aches n hearing problems
