hey guys..i've had a sore throat for a few days now..is this normal?

it doesn't hurt too bad, but its noticeable. like, it hurts whenever i swallow, or cough.

i should probably just pick up something from cvs, huh?

This is not medical advise; but I'd try cough drops for a day or two and call the Doc if it does not go away. That's the mother in me talking.

I agree. Treat it like a cold symptom. Keep an eye on it though and of course have a throat culture to check for strep if it gets worse or doesn't go away. I also understand sore throat can be a symptom of MCTD, which of course is another one of these pesky AI diseases. Could be an overlap...ask your doc...Best to you, get better...Julie

do you have allergies? I get sore throats this time of year from all the post nasal drip. It's worst in the morning when I wake up. Yuck! I take an OTC allergy pill at night before bed and that helps me alot. I also use a Neti Pot when I am not suffering from nasal ulcers.
