arthritis in neck cause of constant sore throat?

I am pretty sure I have arthritis in my neck...I have been getting a constant swelling feeling in my neck and it eventually causes my throat to be sore which eventually causes my ears to ache and I am miserable all winter long with this. Could this all be from arthritis? Anyone else experiencing this, and if so, what seems to bring relife?

Hi,

Please have your doctor do an ANCA blood work up on you. I do not think it is arthritis. I have what is called Wegner's and you have some of the same symptoms I had. Of course this is just a suggestion, but it couldn't hurt.

Thank you for replying! I am very interested in Wegners now. I read something on the internet about it affecting the kidneys sometimes. I have protein in my urine and they can't figure out why. Do you have kidney trouble also? Do your symptoms come and go or are they constant? Sorry, but I have so many questions! I also have shortness of breath and palpitations sometimes, do you?

Hi There!

Have you physician check your thyroid too. Sometimes the feeling of a sore throat can be a thyroid problem.
