Sore Throats from menopause?

Hi, I've been having recurring sore throats latley, 5 or 6 weeks now,very painful sore throats, like you are swollowing razor blades. I rarely, if ever, get colds or sore throats, have no allergys, and my home is as toxic free as possible, so I'm wondering if this has something to do with menopause, sounds odd, but I've had a whole bag of stuff that I would have never thought were menopause related, for 13 years now. I was wondering if anyone else has had this too? Thank you.

Hi McDowell,
Sounds to me like you need to go to your doctor hun. I've never heard of a sore throat as a symptom of menopause. Sounds more like you've contracted strep, which can be very serious if not treated with simple antibiotics. Just my opinion, for what it's worth. Godspeed, ~Karen

I've had issues with swollen glands that were definitely hormonal. During my cycles, there would be a 2 - 3 day window where the glands would be in a knot. But even then it was never a technical sore throat. I agree that this is call for a visit to the doctor.

Mcdowell: Have you ever read Dr. John Lee's books called What your doctor won't tell you about menopause and he's got one on Perimenopause too. The best part that I learned was about Estrogen Dominance. There are 40 side-effects of it. You can develop asthma, allergies, vitamin deficiencies, feel cold all the time, and more. Look it up for the whole list. You'd be surprised how your hormones regulate things you would never have thought of until this menopause starts. It's crazy!!!

I've been feeling a more dry/sore throat lately myself. Some of it might be because of dry air in the house and we've been having some wacky weather around the country lately too. Keep yourself hydrated with alot of water. Suck on some candies if you have to. You do need to be careful that it's not strep. That's not something to fool with. Go see an ear, nose and throat doctor if it doesn't get better.

Get your hormones tested to see if they're causing problems for you.
