    Sore throat and jaw 4 days after smoking marijuana
    An_248771 posted:
    I was out on Saturday night and ended up going back to a friends place and smoking marijuana. I don't actually remember how I felt because I was highly intoxicated, but I was told I was coughing a lot. (I don't usually smoke anything at all). The next day I felt horrible and hungover and ended up throwing up. After that, my throat hurt very bad. It hurt to eat and to swallow. I kept trying but everything would hurt. I have it a day and it got a little easier to eat, but it still hurt. Now it's 4 days later, and the right side of my jaw and throat still hurt. I don't know what to do. I tried gargling salt water and peroxide, but nothing is helping.
    Rod Moser, PA, PhD responded:
    You will need to see a medical provider so that you can have your throat properly examined. Since you were really out of it (intoxicated and cannabis-impaired), you may not know exactly what transpired.

    Your sore throat could be an infection (virus? Strep?) or it could be some profound inflammation from vomiting, smoking weed, or drinking....or a combination of all of them.

    You cannot be diagnosed blindly over the Internet, so please see your medical provider so that you can be diagnosed and treated.
