Hekp me figure out this throat problem
I have a mild sore throat on the right side, about level with the adam's apple, but only when I swallow. It isn't constant, but it comes and goes kind of randomly. I seem to have less trouble with it when I'm up on my feet moving around than when I'm just sitting.
I do have a history of ear infections on this side. Last time i had an ear infection, I had this same sore throat as well, but the doctor didn't see anything wrong. I have had just a slightly elevated temerature this weekend, but again this comes and goes -- in the mornings, for example, my temp is actually below normal!
I have a runny nose in the early morning, but then it clears up even if the throat doesn't. I am likely allergic to mold, etc. I don't have any trouble with GERD unless it is the maybe the "invisible" nighttime kind. I drink moderately, have never smoked. I'm 40 and normal weight. I do snore some.
Could I have some sort of chronic, ongoing infection in the Eustachian tube or something?
