I went to a party. One of the mixed drinks didn't go down right. Over the next week I had more and more problems swallowing food. I finally went to a
doctor and he said I had a strep virus. I took penicillin for a week and it got a little better. But not completely better.
Did the Doc actually take a swab of your throat?
I would go back to the Doc and ask for a swab and thorough diagnosis.
I have neve had the feeling of something being stuck in my throat but when I did have a throat infection, my throat just felt gritty. Perhaps you
need a repeat prescription and have you tried a throat gargle?
If I feel a sore throat coming on, I go straight to the Chemist and buy betadine throat gargle. It is fantastic stuff and if I use it as soon as the
symptoms appear, it doesn't develop any further.
