Ear or Throat???
Hi Doc.

A week ago a friend and I were practising selfdefence. She by accident choked me to hard. Since then the right side of my throat is sore when I swallow and with that a earache. Must I get something for a sore throat or a earache?

Dear Achy,
The nerve that supply your throat also goes to the ear, that is why you feel pain in the ear. Try taking an anti-inflammatory like Mypaid for a few days. You probably bruised your throat.
