    Randomly moving throat/ear pain

    I am sad. I've been ill for 30 days now. It started with sore throat and drainage. I was told it was viral, and after 7 days of continued and worsening symptoms, I returned to another doc. By then, I had developed a lump in my throats which was causing extreme ear pain. I was diagnosed with strep and given 10 days of amoxicillin. All was better upon completing it, until 2 days after I was done, a dull pain on the left of my throat returned. After a day, the pain spread to my ear. I went to an ENT, who found nothing. I was told to take 800mg of ibuprofen, and go to a spine doctor. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ .....I lasted for 4 days, taking far too much Advil, and went to another ENT for a second opinion. She said it had nothing to do with my spine but saw "cobblestoning" in my throat. Ears were fine. She recommended a nasal allergy spray. So it's been 3 days on that. The throat pain and ear remains, although a little less severe. I have no there congestion or symptoms. I've stopped taking Advil once I saw my urine was light pink. The pain in my throat keeps switching randomly from side to side....every 1-3 days. It's worse at night. The ear pain lessens in the day and returns in the evening. I need an answer. I'm tired of this! ;(

        I went on vacation and within 2 days - it was gone. Hasn't returned. I was told so many different things. Maybe it was stress?

        Yeah, went to ENT Dr. today and sore throat was gone. He did a great exam and said it was probably allergies. Who knows??

        Mine has gotten worse , so a week and half ago i went to urgent care cause my ears got all stuffed up and had pain. They said my ears were inflammed. I was also feeling light headed .unsteady, dr said had no clue why. They put me on prednisone. Was told if not better to go see my gp dr. 4 days later pain down neck got worse and buzzing in ears, still lightheaded and was sweating. Went to er, Was told could be internal ear infection. And that stress does not help. I had blood and urine test , came back negative. Dr told me to keep taking steriods that urgent care gave me and was given pain meds told if not better call gp and get an mri. I have one day of steriods left and i am not any better will try and get into dr on monday hoping they will not brush me off like nothing is wrong. I am so frustrated. To long this has been going on. I have symptoms of internal ear infection. if only i could get a dr to treat me for it. Maybe i need antibiotic and higher does of steriods.
