So for about the past week and a half, my throat has been hurting along with my ears and tongue. A few of the teeth in the back of my mouth also hurt a little too (i dont know if they have anything to do with the other pains). I went to a doctor and he said there was nothing wrong. I've been taking tylenol to stop the pain because it gets really bad late at night. I havent been swimming so it's not swimmers ear. I have had post nasal drip in the past and every time i get out of my shower I feel like i need to spit up mucus. (hot shower)

Does anyone have any idea what the problem might be?

It is really not possible for me (or anyone) to be able to blindly determine a reason for your symptoms over the Internet, based solely on the brief information you have posted. I do not know anything about you, your medical history, or have any way of examining you and ordering diagnostic tests.

I know that you were examined by your doctor who said that nothing was wrong, but clearly, if you are still havinig problems...something IS wrong. Just because a reason is not found on one exam, does not mean that you do not have a problem, so I would suggest that you see your medical provider again (or see a different medical provider) so you can be re-examined.

I know it has been a couple years but I have the same problem with my throat and tongue and such. What did it end up being and should I go to the doctor. It has now but about four weeks.
