Pain And Pain In The Throat When Swallowing?
Hi, Doctor. I want to ask, why do I feel pain when swallowing like swallowing food and saliva and the area of my aching pain is in my left neck and my ear is underneath and I feel something inside. Thank you
Thank you for the question.
Pain when swallowing, which is felt primarily in the left neck under the ear, may indicate that you are experiencing pharyngitis, or inflammation of the throat. This condition generally arises due to irritation, for example if you often scream excessively, breathe through your mouth, or consume certain types of foods and drinks that irritate your throat (such as spicy food, oily, artificial sweetness, and cold). It could also, pharyngitis occurs due to viral infections, bacterial infections, allergies, dry throat, stomach acid that flows back into the throat, immune disorders, side effects of drugs, even benign or malignant tumors around the throat.
Not only that, swallowing pain that you feel may also refer to tonsillitis, foreign body entry into the throat, oral cavity infections, otitis media, parotitis, psychological disorders, gastroesophageal reflux disease, and so on.
The good, you first reduce your complaint with the following steps:
Drink more warm water Eat also foods that are warm, brothful, complete with fruits and vegetables rich in vitamin C Stay away from the consumption of foods and drinks that are at risk of irritating the throat, as we have mentioned above Eat small portions but often Do not lie down immediately eat Do not smoke Do not shout too much excessive Rest more Take medication for paracetamol if the pain is unbearable You can check yourself directly to the doctor or ENT doctor if the steps above still do not succeed in relieving the complaints you feel.
Hope this helps ...
