What is causing pain near Adam's apple on the right side after the flu?
Hello, I am 19 years old male. My throat has been hurting for a few weeks. It started after the flu. I used to blow my nose a lot and then, the pain started. It's not your typical sore throat, it's like a pain on the bottom right of the throat near Adam's apple. It doesn't hurt when I swallow. It's only when I start speaking and when I yawn. Comes on and off, frequently every day. Can anyone help me with this?
@titanya Hello, If the outside of your throat hurts, specifically the adam's apple, this may be caused by acute thyroiditis or inflammation of the epiglottis. I would advise you to visit a ENT so that you can be examined and undergo the necessary investigations such as ultrasound,etc to find the underlying cause and have it treated accordingly. If the problem persists or worsens visit the ENT at the earliest. Thanks!
