hi

mysticdoc :

thyroid gland can cause pain sometimes, but it is not common.

Customer :

Wow this is new, never seen the chat

Customer :

ok so should I be worried about this

Customer :

or is this throat related?

mysticdoc :

i think it is just sore thraot from recent viral infection.

Customer :

Ok but this is the thing I just recently got off antibiotics last week for a groin growth I had so I should not have anything going on

mysticdoc :

viral infection does not respond to antibiotics.

mysticdoc :

antibiotics only treats bacterial infection.

Customer :

oh ok I didnt know that? Ya its like at the vry bottom of my throat so like when I swallow I feel it and when I eat big clums of food I feel it.

Customer :

If that makes any sence, at all

mysticdoc :

how long you have these symptoms?

Customer :

Just today I think

mysticdoc :

mysticdoc :

Customer :

clumps of food I mean

mysticdoc :

viral infection.

Customer :

should I try to take anything for it?

Customer :

mysticdoc :

mysticdoc :

acid reflux can also cause this

Customer :
