Sore Throat once a month
Hi everyone
The past four months I have experienced a sore throat on the upper left side of my throat just under my jaw. It usually lasts about three days and generally occurs with my ovulation (but it may or may not be related). I am hypothyroid I have been on 50mg of Levothyroxine for 5 years or so. I dont know if this is related but its weird. The first time it occured I assumed I had an infection and got antibiotics. It went away and I wasnt concerned. The second month it came I thought maybe I just had a relapse of the infection and took more antibiotics and it went away. Now it's the fourth month and I'm becoming concerned. My gland doesnt feel swollen but its definitely sore to the touch. Has this ever happened to anybody? I have a gyno appt in a few weeks I can ask her to refer me to an endo. My gp originally put me on the thyroid meds.
