I have just been on the web looking for "can anxiety cause a sore throat".
I can not find anything on anxiety and sore throat but several websites say if a sore throat lasts more than 2 weeks it could be something serious like throat cancer.
I have been to the doctor twice, which he has had a look and has given me antibiotics (penicillin) twice on seeing him.
This has got me in such a state as my antibiotics are not working and it's my second course of them.
I have had enough, I'm not sure if I can cope anymore of this worry.
The doctor also said that they referr people for further investgation after 8 weeks, which I think has not helped my anxiety at all.
CAN ANXIETY CAUSE THE THROAT TO BE RED as doctor said both times that it is red, that's what is worrying me.
I have to have a sweet in mouth to stop the soreness.
Just can not stop crying again...!
It does not hurt when a swallow at all, just feels sore throughout the day.
