For a long time, I get throat pain. Stuff that doesn't turn into a full-fledge sore throat, but a painful, raw, soreness. I can feel it under the curve of my jaw on both sides when I swallow, when I open my mouth it hurts inside, and it's just generally very unpleasant. I usually get some ear pain as well, but not as bad as I would if I were totally sick. My tonsils don't look inflamed. This happens a lot, and sometimes it will lead to total sickness. I am just so tired of feeling sick, and being very exhausted all the time (perhaps that is related to something else) and I don't know what to do..
Have you seen a doctor about this? Maybe it's strep throat reoccuring? If it's untreated it will reoccur and can cause upset stomache...headache...all kinds of problems. My kids have had strep throat at times even with a very mild sore throat with barely any redness or other symptoms. I've heard of people that have had strep throat without a sore throat. (figure that one out)
Anyway, my other thought was allergies. I've heard that allergies can cause a sore throat.
I'd get it checked out!
