The Uber Sore Throat

I've had a sore throat now for over a month. It's intesity changes, but it is still there. I went to the doctor for it about a week ago, and my bloodpressure and cholesterol are both a little above average, but he couldn't see what was wrong with my throat. So, he gave me some antibiotics and told me to take ibuprofen. For 10 days, I took these antibiotics and ibuprofen, thinking that maybe it would help, and for a while it seemed to. Then I realized that it's just the ibuprofen making the pain go away that made me think I was getting better. The antibiotics did nothing. This indicates to me that it is either alergies, which would explain the logevity of it all, or it's some sort of super virus that is slowly eating away my throat. The problem with the alergies theory is the fact that I've never had any sort of alergies to anything before. Now, I would hope that if it were a virus, that my body would eventually be able to fight it off somehow, but as of yet, it seems to be as stumped as I am as to the nature of the problem. I bring all of this up, because last night it really flaired up, and now it's doing it again. It really REALLY hurts right now. If anybody else is experiencing similar symptoms, let me know. Here is a complete list.
Extremely Persistant Sore throat that comes and goes.
Sore ears.
No fever.
No other symptoms really.

  1. You need to go to an ear nose and throat specialist. What they gave me made my soar throat go away and everythingelse that was being weird. I promised what he gave worked. They gave me an antibiotic called Levaquin.

  6. So I got some Levaquin, and it killed it. It's an expensive antibiotic though. $40 with insurance, $150 without, and that's for 10 pills. $15 a pill, it'd better work, which it did. I'm so happy.
