Hello. I'm Dr Chip
What's your question about this please?

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
I have had a sore throat for a while, I am wondering if it is serious
Customer: replied 13 days ago.
I don't want to talk on the phone sorry

Can you tell me more about it?

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
I normally smoke a cannabis join at night before bed and that's the only time I smoke. Recently my throat burns about an hour after smoking
Customer: replied 13 days ago.
I have trouble swallowing sometimes and notice my throat can be sore during the day too.

Any redness?

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
It seems sore near the top of my throat where my nose is connected
Customer: replied 13 days ago.
I haven't noticed but I'm not sure how red it is normally

Nothing all that serious

Sounds like either gastric acid reflux or allergies with post nasal drip

Have your doctor check for those

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
Okay can these symptoms last a long time? Thank you for listening

Yes they can
