I have had a sore throat for almost 3 mos. I have also been hoarce and my voice fades in an out. My ears also ache. I went to my family doctor 3 wks ago and he put my on amoxicillion 875mg twice a day for 10 days. He said he saw no signs of an infection, and if my throat didn't get better after the medicine I needed to see an ENT. The antibiotics didn't change anything. I have an ENT apt. in 2 wks. I can't really tell if there are lumps on my neck, but it does feel like I have something in my throat when I swallow. Lately, my throat feels tight and it is always dry. I feel like I have a turtle neck on that's too tight. My grandfather had throat cancer. I do not smoke or drink alchohol ever. I have had to use inhalers my whole life. It's also been kinda hard to breathe sometimes. I'm afraid of my apt. with the ENT next week. Do my symptoms sound like cancer or could there possible be something else that could cause these symptoms? I normally don't worry about such things, but I'm kinda freakin out about this. Just a little advice, please? I have also heard something about fungal Laryngitis from using asthmatic inhalers. Can anyone help me on this? Becoming very nervous.
