Do we have any doctors or medical people here? I am relly having problems with my throat. i had been experiencing sore throats and it has been recurrent. It's there at one time, lost and there again. I am scared now. I admit that I am very much talkative but I don't think that's the main reason right? Im trying giner le now.. hope this works.. I tried losenges but there's more pain.. :-(

I am a singer, that's what I can say: you should get your throat checked by a REAL doctor, not just ask for online advise. A doc should LOOK at your throat, to be able to say what's the matter. Generally, lots of vitamin C helps (it means AT LEAST 1000mg a day, but when it's really bad, or when you have a cold, you can go up to 15000mg) And sore throats might be very often psychosomatical if not most of the times. This you can suspect very well, if it's recurring, as you say. You should find somebody who can give you an assist. This is a very simple procedure that scientologist volunteers use when they are helping sick or injured people and it works excellent.

i should do that but right now its really hurting me and i need first aid. Maybe it's psychosomatic on my part since it started when i worked on graveyard shift. I just hope this won't get worsen by tomorrow

I know a traditional method by mixing lime and soy sauce (total just a little amount about 10 cc maybe), then drink it... well, it works for me at least reduce the "pain". Get well soon, man! ^_^
