Customer Question

I have had a sore throat for 2 weeks. The pain is slightly burning and radiates to my ear. It also feels like I have a lump in my throat occasionally. Sometimes my throat and ear itches. No trouble swallowing. Slight sinus drainage especially in the morning.
I am a 29 year old female. I am slightly overweight and do not drink or smoke. I have a vitamin D deficiency, as well as deficient in iron (over a year being deficient). I have anxiety. I do suffer from acid reflux, but I don't think that causes it because
I do medicate for it to keep it at bay. This all started after a bought with the flu about 3 weeks ago. I am severely deprived of sleep at the moment as well.I am scared to death I have throat cancer due to me having reflux since I was a pre-teen.
