    Has anyone gotten a very bad sore throat from post-nasal drip?

    I thought I had a cold starting on Sunday, but on Tuesday I woke up with a severe sore throat. The dr. prescribed me antibiotics over the phone since they were closed (I thought it may be a sinus infection as well). I have no other symptoms except for congestion and a severe sore throat. No fever. I have suffered from allergies all my life and remember post-nasal drop causing a little scratchiness but nothing like this. It's day 3 of my sore throat and I'm wondering if it could be something else. My tonsils feel swollen as well although as far as I can tell they don't look too red or swollen.

    If you gargle with warm salt water and it helps,it's PND/allergies. If it doesn't, it's bacterial. Doctor told me that years ago and it's proven true over the years.
