Does my throat look right!?

Posted , 2 users are following.

hi,

ill upload a pic but do anyone think it doesnt look right?

ive grown a habit of looking back of my throat! i have health anxiety so its making it much worse. i dont have a sore throat...been on penicillin for a possible lingering infection but did nothing. GP thinks i may have post nasal drip! also TMJ but going to see GP this week for more info. i dont have a sore throat but wake up with a stuffy nose most mornings. also get the feeling something is stuck back of my throat left side...on occasion. any advice would be appreciated. thanks.

      Hi Kayleigh..i think it looks normal.

      Did you have an infection?

      I have post nasal drip which gets worse in spring and in the mornings I get a really stuffy and blocked nose and I'm prone to sinus infections.

      I understand the anxiety..

      I sometimes use nasal sprays and it helps some.

      I hope your Dr appt goes well, let us know what he says.

      thank you! yes i too have post nasal drip and the morning usually if i have my window open during the night my nose is really blocked! feels swollen almost. do you get these marks due t your post nasal drip? i had laryngitis before xmas and i went to see GP early jan and she told me it looked a little infected still so took penicillin and hasnt changed the appearance much. she gave me nasal spray for post nasal drip (keep forgetting to use it) but i might start using it more.

      Hi Kayleigh..do you mean the streaks on your tonsils? If so I think they're normal and yeh I have them. I had pharyngitis few months ago and dr said it was just from that.

      Didnt need antibiotics and told me it will clear in it's own..its annoying.

      I stopped taking the nasal spray as it has cortisone in it and I usually take a break from it ...When it gets really bad I take eldeberry syrup and it helps a bit but doesn't really go away.

      Hi Kayleigh ..I looked at my throat and my son's and we have little bumps too...Mtoo...My son has huge tonsils and adenoids so his are more noticeable..

      The Dr would have said if he seen anything wrong. Ask him again when you go see him.

      When I had pharyngitis it took ages to clear and made my post nasal drop worse...

      I know it's annoying and mine gets worse in spring.
