Good day to everyone

In February I got sick with body pain and fever and very weird sore throat. the sore throat was not as usual. It was like there is a knife in my throat to my ear.

I went to clinic and they gave me antibiotic. after taking the antibiotic my throat immediately by next day felt much better. However, after finishing my med 3 day after started again. I went to clinic they gave me one injection and again antibiotic for two weeks.

Again right after finishing my med my sore throat came back.

This time I went to hospital for the specialist. she did all the check up and she said my throat is only red she can not see any bacteria. So she got the sample to see what type of bacteria is and gave me the combination of two types of antibiotics for a week. After I finished the med my pain gone but then I started feeling something in stuck in my throat. I went back doc did X-ray but she did not see anything and she everything looks normal in the X-ray. She said if after 3 days I still feel the same I should go back and they do another check up.

Its been 2 month I am feeling the same thing I am wondering anyone knows what is wrong with me.

I have no pain anymore but the thing is bothering me so much and I am being so scared what it could be?!

by the way the first sore throat was both left and right side but the two last pain only in my right side to my right ear.

and the last two sore throat I had no fever nothing at all only the pain.

I have recently stopped my smoking right before I got sick.

My silly question is that could it be a cancer :(? by the way I feel better in the morning got worse at night. morning even sometimes I dont feel anything in my throat.

Thank you

Welcome to the forum Faran.

So sorry you are having throat pain. I hope you went back and got another check. If there are no bacteria causing a problem a sore throat can be caused by a virus, which shouldn't last 2 months but can cause your sensation to start.

Not everything is visible on x-ray. Have you seen and ENT or gastroenterologist? Cancer is about the last thing on the list, but they could take a good look with an endoscope and grab a tiny tissue sample to see what's going on. They would also be able to see if your lower esophageal sphincter looks OK and possibly see any sign of hiatal hernia.

You could look up the causes of globus sensation, the feeling of something stuck in the throat.

I'm glad to see you stopped smoking. That can cause this sort of problem.

Thank you so mcuh Alcie for the reply. There is no pain anymore but the feeling of something stuck in my throat is there. I guess I will go hospital tomorrow again. I cant wait anymore.
I have seen ENT. I think this time my doctor would go for endoscope or if not I guess I just ask her, I really want to make sure is not anything serious.

Thank you again
