Does anyone get ulcers in their throat?

27 messages in this subject.

I been getting ulcers for years now and there getting worse. The consultant iím under takes notice to the problem unlike most others. I get these big things all around my mouth but they seem to come more on my tonsils and throat now.

does anyone else get them on their tonsils?

And if you do, this may seem like a silly question, but the ulcers i get have eaten away my tonsils and it now looks like iíve had them taken out and something been nibbling at my throat. Does anyone else get this or am i use not normal.

Iíve only been on this site a couple of time and itís so good (well not for you to have them) but to know that iím not the only one who gets really them really bad.

Same here. For the first time I noticed theyíre where my tonsils should be. My doctor asked me when I had them taken out. WHen I told her they havenít been taken out, she seemed shocked, like I was lying to her. The ulcers hurt really bad when I eat. Sometimes when i get them on the insides of my lips they swell really bad.

In answer to your question... yes I do get them on my tonsils. And yes they have left scars, the tonsils seem a little more delicate.

And I seem to have struck very unlucky this week.

I have been off work since Tuesday with one mother of a fever/temperature and heavy headache.
I might point out that an ulcer had appeared the previous week just above one of my tonsils but it didnt give the usual aggrivation and seemed to be dying a quiet death.
With the stress of this bug Ive got and the bad sleep I noticed on Thursday that another had appeared next to the previous one, kind of joining itself and bringing the old one alive again, unbelieavable. I also started getting some more severe pains on my right tonsil... the pains were so bad yesterday that I went to see a doctor.
He took 1.5 seconds to have a look (and I explained I get a problem with ulcers) and said it was tonsilitous... Im not convinced as Ive had tonsilitous before, and that was on both tonsils with different symtoms.

After close inspection when I got home, it looks to me like my right tonsil is ílitteredí with ulcers on the outside and in the crypts, and let me tell you it is fíing painful!

Im thinking of having the damn things removed cos a) of the ulcers and b) I get ítonsil stonesí, which is another stress of the mouth which I could do without!

Ive gotta say tho... I do believe ulcers are slightly stress related. They always attack when Im down, have little energy or sleep.

Have a good w/e all

yes i have just had a week of ulcers at the back of my mouth also one on my tongue and side of my mouth. they all burned like a furnace, hard to swallow food and drink . what i found out when they are at the worst is to put your self under a bit of stress just work maybe it kick starts the immune system . this did happen today . was able to eat a meal and drink tea. still need to find a way to stop them coming in the first place yes will try to keep my mouth shut .

I also get them (rarely) where my tonsils should be -- I had them removed when I was a child. I have also got them on my uvula (the little dangling punching-bag-like part in your thoat). That KILLS! Everytime you swallow it rubs against your tongue!! OUCH!!

You Poor ******s, i Feel for you, Right now i have a massive ulcer on the inside of my top lip. When i was younger 11 i was in hospital for Ulcers in my throat, my whole throat was completely covered in them, i was kept in for nearly 2 wks on drips , pills and everythink. Doctors was never sure what caused it, they just put it down to stress Ēpersonal problems at the timeĒ.. i had one bad relapes like that when i was 15. Im 23 now and since the age of 10 ive had ulcers on my tounge,inside anywhere in my mouth and Mainly my throat. Ive been put on god knows how many pills, mouth washes, gels, creams.. nothing ever seemed to cure them. Vitamin B complexe is the only thing i ever found to help prevent them. But over the years of having ulcers in my throat and on my tonsils, my ulcers left my throat completey scared to fuck and my TONSILS degraded away and left large TONSIL CRYPTS which then made matters worse cause i started gettin TONSIL STONES, which aint a nice way to startt your day when you have to scrape out these yellow hard looking lumps of hardernd puss. I went to see 2 GPís who which told me there was nothing wrong with my tonsils and it was a normal thing and there was nothing else i cud do with my ulcers because i had already seen so many ENT, Ē its okay for someone to say this when they dont sufferĒ. After many months of tonsil stones and mouth ulcers, started feelin very runned down, tierd and sick. Im on private insurrance now, so i decied to get hold on my ENT who done my nose pollops before, and asked if i could see him without a referal.. MY INSURANCE COVERED IT and that means the doctor gets payed, surprise suprise i was straight in. The ENT took one look at my mouth and told me i needed my tonsils out because they were full of puss and that the puss was goin down into my belly and was causing me to be feeling ran down and was a possible cause of ulcers. I had the op 3 wks ago.. already im feelin alot better, still a little sore and just one mouth ulcer in 3 wks.. im not sure if this as cured my mouth ulcers as yet, but one thing is i know that without PRIVATE INSURANCE/ OR THE MONEY TO PAY FOR IT i probabiliy wud still have my tonsils.. Iíve herd from a doctor reccently that many GPís are ignoring the fact of tonsil removal because its so common and costs an awful lots of money on the NHS... but how many people suffer with tonsil problems and how many people have to take time off work, says alot for our current health system then really.. sorry this is soo long.. if anyone would be intrested to know what meds pills i have tryed i have a list at home

hope everyone finds away of gettin round there ulcers, cos i know how bad it is

my contact is

Sorry if my spelling is wrong im typing fast at work hehe

I get them in my throat,I have a few now b/c it hurts my ears as well.My conclusion it is stress related but too much acid in my diet can trigger it off

My first ulcer, 15 years ago was in my throat, extremely painful as it hurt just swallowing saliva. I couldnít eat for weeks, before begging my doctor to get me into hospital for tests. Turned out it was on my epiglotis and whilst under sedation the surgeon cut the ulcer out as he thought it was cancer.Fortunately turned out not to be but have had mouth ulcers ever since. I have tried everything from mouth washes to thalidomide to no avail. 7 years ago a large one appeared on my tonsils and was advised to have them taken out and that if i did, there would be a good chance I wouldnít get ulcers anymore. Of course I did but at least I canít get them on my tonsils anymore! I use a steroid paste now called Dermovate and then over that I put acortyl orabase to keep it in place. Works but takes a week or so to heal. Donít like taking it as it is supposed to external use only but what choice do we get when they wont heal on their own.

What a relief to find out that i am not the onl person who has throat ulcers!! My work mates think i am just a big whinger. I used to get large mouth ulcers as a kid (now 31) - but 9 years ago they started in my throat. Today (privately) i went to ENT and guess what - they said that i have ulcers!! They were on my epiglotis (which i thought was rare as i have never net anyone else with throat ulcers before - but it seems not). As a kid - i always got them when it was very hot - but now they are in my throat - i reckon it is all stress related. When my daughter was ill - i got them real bad - and i was very stressed! My wife and i think it might be food related (chinese meals!?) - so will start a diary to see of there is a link.

Swallowing is a real pig - the last meal was 2 days ago - even drinking is a pain. I find Aspro (soluble aspirin) help - but there is a limit to how many of those you can take a day.

Thanks for sharing your pain - i really thought i was alone.

I get them in my throat too. I have 5 on my epiglotis at the moment and because it is so swollen it makes me choke which kills the ulcers in my mouth. At present I am having a really bad flare up and canít even count how many I have. Havenít eaten in 3 days and am just about managing to drink luke warm tea. The pain is agony, all my glands in my neck are swollen. I feel a complete mess at the moment and hate them so much. Have just ordered some Squiggle toothepaste to see if that will help prevent them. I definately get them worse when I am stressed.

I successfully use triamcinolone oral paste on sores on my tongue and cheek(apply it at bedtime, and no pain the next morning), but there is no way to apply this oral paste on my throat. I get ulcers in my throat frequently, and recently found that gargling with listerene mouthwash helps. It seems to remove the white covering that the ulcers get and they heal quicker than with no treatment. Be prepared for some significant pain when rinsing your ulcers with listerene, but itís worth the short term pain to relieve the long term droning pain of the ulcer.

I get them in my mouth throat and they last for months - I was diagnosed with Behcets Syndrome a while ago and this is standard stuff. I find soluble aspirin(swill it/gargle it) is the fastest form of relief and Adcortyl is the only effective topical treatment. Dequacaine is a great throat lozinge that contains an anaesthetic which will bring some welcome relief.

Shockingly, Adcortyl has just been discontinued on economic grounds but they could have doubled the price and we still would have paid it - its very frightening. Sensidyne Pronamel toothpaste is also SLS free and available on the high st - might be good for some of you :)

Carly, I get large ulcers sometimes in the back of my mouth towards my throat, ask your GP for a 2 week course of 20mg prednisone tablets, this always works for me.

Help is here!!!

After suffering since childhood, trying bonjela, mouth wash and all the types of treatments under the sun, I found none of them worked.

Mouth wash and brushing regularly is what you need to maintain overall mouth hygiene but DOES NOT GET RID OF ULCERS.
Get a paracetamol tablet and wet it. Leave until it becomes a paste and then rub it on ulcers. Instead of a painful couple of weeks the pain goes almost immediately and will be gone in a few days instead of WEEKS.

This helped me so much I hope it helps you guys.

I had my first ever throat ulcer this week caused thankfully by a virus HFMD so they cleared after a week or two. They are the worst pain Iíve ever experienced, Iíve experienced painful things before like a brick falling on ankle, Appendix eruption, a severe cut on arm about 1in in depth, a wisdom tooth extraction, and strept. I do believe strept comes very close to the amount of pain I had when this virus gave me the ulcers (the ulcers lined the back of my throat along with other blisters, one barely touching my uvula) throat ulcers are hands down the most painful thing Iíve ever felt just because itís so constant and overall hurts like youíve inhaled chili powder, while stabbing your throat with a small tack, and overall feeling of dehydration on them. I tried every ďremedyĒ I use remedy loosely as they didnít do much to ease the pain as well as painkillers. If you have throat ulcers the best thing I found to do was to accept defeat and insult the ulcers everyday for causing such agony on a person. I remember I got so desperate once to stop the pain I used chloraseptic mouth spray for my mouth and instead of spitting it out I swallowed some, of course this is harmful to your liver but the pain was so unbearable I had to and it was a mistake the spray stopped the pain for a good 30 seconds and they came back with a vengeance. Never. Swallow. The. Spray. Iím finally glad to say the ulcers killed me and Iím living a happy, ulcer free life in hell. (Just kidding but the ulcers did leave me alone, if you ever see someone with HFMD just move out of state. Thatís a sure free way of getting ulcers in your throat for a good week with a very bad headache and a fever from hell. Also it will immobilize your hands and feet with painful blisters that itch a lot. They will also appear on your face. So remember if you see someone that looks like they have bed bug bites on their arms and face leave immediately.)
