Sore throat and Chest problems

I am in the process of being diagnosed with Crohn's/colitis. I have been suffering with gerd and the for the last couple of weeks I have had a sore throat. In the last couple of days the pain is agony, it feels like the right hand side of my throat is swollen and tight. I can eat and drink but feel sick. The gp has said it is an infection but can't see anything and prescribed me antibiotics which I started yesterday. Went back today and I have a slight temperature and my neck glands are swollen but wont do anything as I need to wait to see if I get better. It is horrible pain and can't sleep at night. Any advice would be appreciated.

Hope you feel better...have you tried any throat spray or lozenges to help with the pain?

While my experiences may not be what everyone has had- I feel it is worthwhile to share any and all experiences that may be beneficial to others.
