I feel like I just ate glass shards!

My throat is killing me. Just the back of it. Its red, and I can't swallow, and I had a fever and flu symptoms for 6 hours, it went away. Now I am in so much pain from just my throat. No post nasal drip. Nothing. Help?

  • May possibly be strep throat. You should see a doctor.

  • oh my...Sorry to hear but sounds like either allergies or strep
    symptoms of strep are: Difficulity swallowing, fever, red throat and sometimes white patches, sore throat and swollen glands on sides of neck and sometimes you feel to vomit. you may also have flu like symptoms
    Please have your throat swabbed with a quick growing test that will tell you sooner than later cause it is very contagious...
    Get to feeling better

  • I was thinking strep throat as well. It IS highly contagious until you are on the antibiotics for 24 hours. I had this running through my house back in March.
