Pain in Throat
An_246410 posted:
I got hit in the throat at a softball game today with a ball. At first I couldn't breathe but I'm guessing I just got the wind knocked out of me. It was very hard to swallow and difficult to speak. I tried coughing, taking deep breaths and drinking water to see if it would help, but nothing seemed to work. It is now 8 hours later and I still have a lot of pain in my throat as if i had strep or something and swallowing is still kind of difficult. Should I be concerned and go to a doctor..or will it pass in a few days..???

HI and welcomed,

That sounds painful, I hope you are feeling better. There is just no guessing at this from anyone on the internet. I suggest that if you are in pain you do get to the doctors. Just to make sure that everything is OK. Feel better soon!
Good Luck and Good health,
