    Sore Throat Around 6 months now

    Hey,

    So around 6 months ago I got a sore throat and a cough, after 3 months I noticed it wasn't easing or going away so I went to the doctor. He had a look and said he could see nothing wrong, and sent me home with antibiotics. They didn't help, its been another 3 months with the same issue and its not easing up. I'm not in agony but the left side of my throat has a sharp pain and I can feel it in my left ear also. I'm going to head back to the doctors but its super expensive as my health cover ran out (im visiting a different country, doctors are free back home but I won't be home for another couple months). I'm struggling to play sports and its starting to become worrying. I'm 25/yo male and have never had any health issues.

    RE: Sore Throat Around 6 months now

    I had a sore throat and cough for about four months (in the middle of winter). Dr. did numerous tests before sending me to ENT doctor. After finding nothing wrong with me, he put me on Zyrtec and Flonase (I take generic) every day, all year round and I was better in a couple of weeks! If I skip a day of meds, I get a sore throat back. I also had allergy testing and am now getting allergy shots weekly. I know how awful it is to have a sore throat and cough for so long! Hope you get some relief soon!
