unilateral throat pain
What are the possible causes of unilateral (one side only) throat pain?  I have had pain (sharp, like a knife or a tearing sensation) in the right side of my throat at about the level of the larynx for well over a month.  It is mild until I yawn, then it is very sharp.  It radiates into the right ear.  I've been searching on the internet, but can't find anything specific besides "unilateral throat pain should be investigated by a physician".  Any help as to what the possible causes and or remedies to this would be appreciated.

I too have been having this trouble, but also coupled with bad throat cramps, like a charlie horse when I yawn, sometimes when I talk or swallow. Wondering if you ever figured out the cause?

Thanks.
