What's wrong with me? My throat is sore in one specific place.

Someone said it's my tonsil. What do you think it is?

The 'rona, obviously.

by Anonymousreply 1April 21, 2022 12:26 AM

It's leprosy.

Good luck.

That happens to me all the time OP. I doubt it's anything to worry about. Gargle with warm salty water and that will probably give you some relief.

If you have lots of oral sex (you doing the sucking) it is important to get swabbed at the back of your throat at least once a year for STIs

I'm NOT saying this is an STI - just saying regular STI testing, including the back of the throat, is important for your own health

And another remedy is to drink a tablespoon of dill pickle brine every couple of hours and see if that helps. The vinegar in the brine will wash over the raw area and kill any bacteria that might be present. personally I use Pepperoncini brine because it's a lot hotter than regular dill pickle brine.

r1, I did a covid test. NEGATIVE! I am triple vaccinated anyway. r2, I have not done a leprosy test, but I made your mom wear gloves when she fisted me so I don't think that's it. Thank you, r3. I will do that.

Could be allergies.

R4 is right. STD.

by Anonymousreply 8April 21, 2022 12:33 AM

No, it's not an STI. No one has been near my mouth except my dog and he does not stick his tongue that far down!

R9 / OP you do realize an STI can remain dormant with no symptoms for years. You do know that, right?

If it's only on one side it could be sinus drainage, I get that all the time.

If you have swelling from a lymph node, that could also explain it being only on one side.

Years ago I had the weirdest sore throat (from swelling) that wasn't helped by hot tea or anything, it also wasn't scratchy. Coincidentally the date I got sick was 12/1, World AIDS Day, I somehow figured it was HIV, so I went to my after-hours clinic late at night & demanded I be tested for it.

It turned out to be just a common cold, & I felt so silly afterwards.

"[R2], I have not done a leprosy test, but I made your mom wear gloves when she fisted me so I don't think that's it."

My mom is dead. So if you're having sex with corpses, maybe that's your problem?

by Anonymousreply 12April 21, 2022 12:40 AM

You'll be fine, OP.

by Anonymousreply 13April 21, 2022 12:40 AM

Tonsil stone?

by Anonymousreply 14April 21, 2022 12:42 AM

Can I have your stuff?

by Anonymousreply 15April 21, 2022 12:55 AM

Ok, I think it's a swollen lymph node. It really hurts! And no, r15 you CANNOT have my stuff.

[quote] My mom is dead. So if you're having sex with corpses, maybe that's your problem?

That explains the smell.

by Anonymousreply 16April 21, 2022 1:04 AM

Can't tell. Open wide and say AHH

by Anonymousreply 17April 21, 2022 1:19 AM

Do you also have low grade nausea? It may be post-nasal drip on one side. Uncomfortable but not life-threatening.

by Anonymousreply 18April 21, 2022 1:23 AM

It could be that you scratched it on something you ate without realizing it OP or even that you have an irritation that got inflamed.

If it doesn't go away after a few days go see your MD

Your date didn’t donkey punch you correctly.

by Anonymousreply 20April 21, 2022 1:27 AM

I've had it where one side of my throat is sore and it's usually a sinus infection, even if I didn't have a a runny/stuffy nose to begin with. Give it a few days, take a Covid test, and if it's neg, ask your MD about a Z-pac (sp?) and some flonase. It always works for me.

Maybe you have tonsil stones. Ask someone you can trust if your breath smells like shit, if it does high probability you have tonsil stones.
