I'd suspect thrush/candida overgrowth for pains with swallowing. I've had that before when I was on prednisone (also common with those with asthma inhalators). Take a flashlight and shine it inside your mouth at your mirror. Look for white patches on your tongue, along the insides of your cheeks, and around your mouth as much as you can as with thrush/candida you should see them. A general practitioner or family doctor can take a look and diagnose and give you some antibiotics.
