Does anyone else have this? Is it hearburn or what? I tried taking Prilosec several times and it doesn't seem to help.

Don't know what or who to believe any more.

Strep??? I don't know, but I hope you feel better!
Symptoms began in November 2008, ~4 weeks after giving birth to my son.
Eased for ~3 weeks in December, possibly b/c of probiotic use?
Returned in January 2009 (with a vengeance), diagnosed with pancolitis on January 30.
Currently taking Asacol (400mg 4 pills 3x daily), Rowasa nightly, Culturelle probiotic, and Zoloft (25 mg).

Could be reflux.....you took prilosec a few times or over a period of a week?

Consistency with that would be best.

It could be a virus...have you taken a look at your throat with a flashlight as far back/down as you can? Do you have anything wonky you see?

Any red streaks from the top of the throat downward? that would be post nasal drip and probably a virus.

If you take Tylenol, does it help?
Maybe rinse with salt water....

or it could be a yeast infection .... any white spots?

Thanks for the guesses. To me it seems like some sort of reflux/heartburn issue. I took one Prilosec per day when I had the sensation and it didn't seem to help any of the times. It doesn't feel like any type of strep or anything. I know I should tell my doctor but I don't want any more tests or meds at the moment. If it gets worse I will tell the GI. She is letting me quit 6MP and I am glad for that.
