Issues when drinking water.
 
Usually when i drink some water, like a glass of it or i'm eating soup my throat hurts enough to become an issue.

Usually it hurts on the lower part of my adams apple but it varies, don't know why though.


Anyone able to clear things up or even help me out here?

How fast are you drinking? Is it slowly, or just gulping it down? If you drink liquids to fast the muscles in your throat can contract and cramp up causing pain. Though because your feeling pain in a certain area (under your Adam's apple) it could be mild reflux or a small infection. I'd go see your doctor about it.

It's pretty much inbetween slow and gulping, my friends told me it might be because of tonsil trouble but i really don't know.

I can't really go to my doctor as she's a piece of trash for a human being and away 100km from where i currently live. She usually just fines me without doing anything so i'd stay away from her.


My new question is if something as little as this could aggravate since i've had this for a week or so already.

Seeing the time frame I would assume that it is just a small infection. I would advise getting some rest also drinking some acidic drinks like lemon juice or orange juice should help. It'll burn at first but it helps kill bacteria in your throat also mixing a small amount of salt into your drinking water should help as well. I'd recommend that over using over the counter medication. I'd only see your doctor if this continues on for more than a week as it could be an early sign of mono ( I assume this because you said you had pain near your adams apple which is close to your lymph notes).

I have recurring episodes with this issue too. My doctor-uncle says it's most likely tonsillitis since I haven't had mine removed yet. It usually lasts a few days and goes away on its own though.

I would go to a General Practitioner if i were you. Better safe than sorry =]
Hope it's not something major :)
