Hi. It would help greatly if you could post a photo of your throat on this page.
Were you cultured for strep?
Any problems with indigestion or heartburn?
OK--could you show me by posting a photo?
And, again, any indigestion or heartburn?
I sometimes get indigestion but not often
Thanks--the photo was very helpful. Just a couple more questions--
Why the nasal spray and what type of spray?
They gave me beconase, as they thought it may be muscus causing the pain when it was sore in the mornings even though the pain is often constant
OK We can continue after this if you'd like
This looks like what's called a cobblestone pharynx.
The two major causes are allergies as in postnasal drip from sinuses (or from a sinus infection), and gastric acid reflux that can be significant even if you don't have much in the way of indigestion or heartburn.
If I were your doctor, I would try a two week course of Prilosec or Nexium and I would get a ct scan of your sinuses to look for congestion and/or infection there.
