I have been having symptoms that are in the throat only, and wonder what this may be. This has gone on for over a week.
-- a general funny feeling of the throat
-- a sore throat, with which it hurts to swallow also, worse sometimes and better sometimes, the pain of swallowing has been near unbearable when it's bad, sore throat (or the pain of swallowing) feels like an object being in the throat
-- coughing, caused by the regular breathing in, a need to cough sometimes as I inhale
-- occasional struggling to clear my throat
-- I do not have a fever
At the time of this entry, the sore throat is mild, and I am not coughing.
