Hello everyone! A year ago mom and I went to Disney World and I drank really reaaaally cold water from those drinking spots they have all over the parks. Anyway, after a few minutes I started to feel tired and my sore throat started. It was a really strange pain because I felt it on both sides of my neck and it was very annoying, not like other kind of sore throats I had in the past.

When I came back I went to see the doctor and he told me it was pharyngitis, took my meds, it didn't help. Went to see another doctor, he told me it was sinusitis, the meds didn't help either. Went to see another doctor and he said it was probably reflux, but test said otherwise, my stomach is fine. Then I saw another dr, naturopathic, but he didn't help at all. I noticed that my pain started to fade after eating a lot of honey popsicles, but it didn't work completely. My current doctor says it's allergies, but I've been on treatment for 3 months and I don't feel any better. I also noticed that I feel a sharp pain in my left ear once in a while.

Please, someone, do you know what could be causing my problem? I'm only 19. I don't want to live with this pain forever. I'm starting to get depressed and desperate!
I'd do anything to bet better. Thank you!
