    I’ve been having issues with my throat

    I’ve been having issues with my throat since November. I’ve been told I have bronchitis (I’ve never smoked) and others have either said nothings wrong or it’s just small irritation. Someone’s my throat will bleed from these swollen bumps which were white/ creamy yellow but have developed into an orange colour. My throat constantly hurts. I avid swallowing as much as possible. The mucus/pus in my throat adds to the disgusting feeling I constantly get. I have photos and videos if anyone needs to see....

    Sore Uvula

    Has anybody ever had their Uvula injured during an EGD or tonsillectomy, etc? Mine is 3x the normal length and hits my tongue. I've tried everything they said and it's been a week and doesn't look to be improving to me. Anybody else have this issue if so what did you do for it? Thanks

    Possibly a cold or flu

    I have felt run down, sore throat, sneezing, and coughing. No fever that I know of. This has been going on since Sunday. Tonight my boyfriend looked at my neck and said that it looked swollen by my collar bones. Help...do y'all think I should go to the doctor or just let it take it's course??

    Woke up with a swollen uvula

    I’ve had what I thought was a cold the last 2 days with a stuffy/runny nose and sore throat/coughing and I’ve been taking Sudafed Sinus Pressure and Sore Throat but when I woke up this morning I felt like there was something in my throat and I couldn’t figure it out so when I looked in the mirror my uvula was really big.
  • Throat infection - white spots

    My wife has had white spots in her throat for about 6 weeks. After the first week, I took her to a redi-med, to see if they could give her some antibiotics, but the doctor said it wasn't strep-throat, and she didn't have a fever, so they told her to just wait it out and her body would fight it off in 1-2 weeks. Today, we can still see the dots, although they are somewhat less compared to several weeks ago, but it still seems abnormally reddish around the spots compared to other areas of the....

    Excessive burping when sick

    For the last 12 years, every time I get sick with a cold, the first symptom to arrive and the last to go is excessive burping. It starts about 2 days before any other cold symptoms. It's so bad that I sometimes can't sleep at all. After I burp, I have an urge to swallow, and after I swallow, I have a urge to burp. It is often as frequent as every 6 seconds. They are usually small burps that are somewhat forced out, but there are also big burps interspersed. It is more problematic when lying....

    Question

    For as long as I can remember the back of my mouth and tonsils are really red. They aren't sore and don't hurt. They just look inflamed. Also the glands on the side of my tongue seemed to be irratatted or inflamed. Sometimes during the night I wake up with dry mouth or when I wake up in the morning. Help please!

    I've been sick since last week of December & nothing is getting better...kinda freaking out..help!

    Ok, yeah...I'm an utter moron & with my horrid luck lately, a Darwin Award recipient is probably in my near future. Anyway, I don't get sick. Like ever. However, the last week of December, I got my *** handed to me by some microbe. Came on like gangbusters & HASN'T LET UP. Horrible coughing (the worst is when I'm trying to sleep), severe sore throat, absolutely ZERO voice (it kinda ranges from some super deep freaky frog to a squeek). Constantly cold, ears hurt...and always....

    Constant mucus issues

    Hey you guys, been having the same problem for around 7 months now. I have mucus all in my ears nose and have to clear my throat all the time. My ears are always ringing. Been to ear nose throat specialist a few times and even saw an audiologist for the ringing in my ear. They kept saying it was allergies but I'm not new to seasonal allergies and I'm not itchy or have watery eyes like I do during allergy season and the meds they gave me all failed. I was put on two different types of antibiotics....
