    Sore throat, feeling down and fed up

    Had a sore throat for a few weeks now. Spoken with the nurse as GP is not taking appointments and she seems to think I have a virus. In my mind it's something far worse. Felt ok yesterday and day before although my throat was still red and swollen. But today I just want to cry.....

    It probably is just a virus. Have you tried gargling with salt water?

    But can a virus last for so long? ☹

    Yes. There is no rule with viruses.

    So I have a doctor's appointment this morning. After a chat with him on the phone yesterday, he suspects it's being caused by a post nasal drip. I'm still convinced they will take one look and say it's cancer, so am feeling very anxious right now.

    Do you suffer with Hayfever?

    Pollen has been through the roof recently and Hayfever can cause a post nasal drip, resulting in a sore throat or constantly having to clear your throat.

    Last year I had a sore throat which lasted 6 weeks. I thought it would never go. The doctor said it was a virus and some viruses linger for quite a while. Hope you feel better soon.
