I am Stage 1 patient, almost 8 years post-diagnosis.
For 3 weeks now I have persistent sore throat and it scares me very much. I went to the PCP who did strep nest: negative. The ENT didn't find anything suspicious in the throat also when he used the mirror to look down to the larynx. However, he said that it could be acid reflux related because the entrance of my esophagus is raw and inflamed. He prescribed omeprazole. Well, after 1 week on omeprazole, it is not much better. I cannot locate the pain: sometimes it feels on one side on the throat, sometimes on another when I swallow. Have anyone experienced anything like that???? This sore throat drives me crazy. Thanks for listening.
