Hi so my allergies have recently been messing up but only for a day, next day I wake up with a mild sore throat which I figured is probualy from nasal drip due to allergies because it happens sometime. What I don't understand is why I now can't seem to yawn without feeling pain. It doesn't hurt when I swallow anymore just kinda dull but I dread yawning because its a painful pulling it seems in my throat. This has never happened before, don't think its strep because I know how that feels this is definately different so before I make a trip to the doc can anyone help? It doesn't hurt when i eat or swallow and its been almost 3 days. And its been 4 days since my allergies were acting up.
