Hello everyone.

About 2 weeks ago I had the flu with a sore throat. Not mono because I had that before.

Now, I have a horrible sore throat, but no patches on my tonsils, they're clean craters with thick red veins (I don't know if that's normal?).
When I swallow, it hurts, but not like any other sore throat, it hurts.. a lot.
Also, when I press just under the adam's apple it hurts.
Swallowing also is difficult. When I swallow my throat doesn't seem to want to swallow because it hurts. In the mind I think?

If these help:
I smoke. Marlboro smooths (heard these give throat ulcers)
I have a hoarse cough.
Stuffy nose (but could just be from the cold weather, not used to it) with occasional sneezes.
No fever.
Not feeling tired, down, etc.
Can't really feel out a bump in the throat either.
Voice has seemed to be getting deeper too.
And, I have a lot of mucus build up in the nose and the throat.

Thanks a lot in advance!!!
