Hello Mate,

I have visited GPs more than 25 times, Visited ENT consultant two times and had camera view in throat( had to wait for 4 months to see any specialist in UK, Problem can worsen be for you see MDs), And was discharged from ENT without any symptoms of cancer or ulcer. In year I had blood test 2 times all came normal, including thyrod and many more were normal, have also gone through barium swallow test for oesophagus test came normal too. And finally recently been to endoscopy because of I had very very sever chest pain( reflex), and some tissue were taken, again came every thing normal and dont have any chest pain since endoscopy.


But my throat pain remain all time, I do smoke, but when This sore throat started year ago, I have been completely away from smoking. It does pain and remain very dry in morning, but also remain bit less sore and pain still persist all day, When I take any alcohol It goes very worse next day. To make a point, I have not lost any weight in this pathetic period of pain of more than one year. Please any one know about it or any one had same problem please let me know. I will appreciate any response. Viruses cause most sore throats. Cold and flu viruses are the main culprits. These viruses cause an inflammation in the throat and occasionally the tonsils ( ). Cold symptoms usually accompany a viral sore throat. These can include a runny nose, congestion, hoarseness, and fever.


The level of throat varies from uncomfortable to excruciating, when it is painful for the patient to eat, breathe, swallow, or speak. Another group of viruses that causes sore throat are the adenoviruses. These may also cause infections of the lungs and ears. In addition to a sore throat, symptoms that accompany an adenovirus infection include cough, runny nose, white bumps on the tonsils and throat, mild, vomiting, and a rash. The sore throat lasts about one week. A third type of virus that can cause severe sore throat is the coxsackie virus. It can cause a disease called herpangina. Although anyone can get herpangina, it is most common in children up to age 10 and is more prevalent in the summer or early autumn.


Herpangina is sometimes called summer sore throat. Three to six days after being exposed to the coxsackie virus, an infected person develops a sudden sore throat that is accompanied by a substantial fever, usually between 102 104 F (38. 9 40 C). Tiny grayish-white blisters form on the throat and in the mouth. These fester and become small ulcers. Throat pain is often severe, interfering with swallowing. Children may become dehydrated if they are reluctant to eat or drink because of the pain. In addition, children with herpangina may vomit, have abdominal pain, and generally feel very ill. One other common cause of a viral sore throat is mononucleosis. Mononucleosis occurs when the Epstein-Barr virus infects one specific type of lymphocyte. The infection spreads to the lymphatic system, respiratory system, liver, spleen, and throat.


Symptoms appear 30 50 days after exposure. Mononucleosis, sometimes called the kissing disease, is extremely common. It is estimated that by the age of 35 40, 80 95 percent of Americans will have had mononucleosis. Often, symptoms are mild, especially in young children, and are diagnosed as a cold. Since symptoms are more severe in adolescents and adults, more cases are diagnosed as mononucleosis in this age group. One of the main symptoms of mononucleosis is a severe sore throat. Although a runny nose and cough are much more likely to accompany a sore throat caused by a virus than one caused by a bacteria, there is no absolute way to tell what is causing the sore throat without a laboratory test.
