My throat has been hurting for two weeks. It's not your typical sore throat, it's like a pain left outside of the throat near edge of Adam's apple. It doesn't hurt when I swallow like a normal sore throat would, but it kind of has it's own little spasms of pain. Let me describe these symptoms more specifically: Comes on and off, frequetly everyday. It is located adjacent to my adam's apple, but further back. (if you feel your adams apple, take two fingers and move more back, around your throat tract) and that's where the pain is. The pain is like a little pinch. It's tolerable, but it is incredibly annoying. It mostly hurts on the left side. The pain is there no matter what my actions are. If I talk, sneeze, blow my nose, yawn Somethings is pricking with sharp needle at edge of my Adams Apple. no swelling in my throat, swollen lymph nodes nor it is tight. Rarely, I'll have to breathe deeper because of this. There is no swollen area from what I can tell. So I'm wondering if this has anything to do with thyroid or lymph nodes? Maybe tonsils? Or throat Cancer i dont know. I'm not very educated about the throat. ALSO, I have NO cold symptoms, whatsoever. I am on anti biotics (amoxcyclin) for a week and ibuprofen 400mg for a week. No let-up from the sharp pinch and dull aching in the left side of the neck. I only have trouble with swallowing saliva when I sneeze, yawn, talk on the phone, burp or yawn. Normal drinking & eating food is fine. I also feel very dull pain in the left ear.
Please help me. I'm really terrified & worried about this as my grandma died of throat cancer many many years ago.
Thank you so much for any of your input or advice.
I genuinely appreciate it.
