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?
