Throat Pain in the left side

Hello, I'm getting an acute pain in the left side of my throat when I swallow. Should I be worried?

You could have strep throat, which needs to be cultured for a certain diagnosis.  Antibiotics are important for strep or you can get complications.  If you aren't allergic to penicillin, try to get something like amoxicillin and not Cipro because Cipro can cause problems for many people - it is very strong.
