I have been dealing with a sore throat for about 3 weeks now, and the back roof of my mouth hurts, it feels somewhat similar to a cold exept no running nose or anything else. I have a H hernia so im thinking it might be acid comming up and burning my throat and mouth.IT doesn't hurt to swollow maybe a tiny bit on the roof of my mouth. Pretty much my throat and mouth feel out of wack I have been smoking for 7 years, and with my anxiety im thinking it may be cancer or something, i've never had a sore throat like this for this long its just weird, im going to the doctor soon. Is this a common symptom of acid reflux, i have had acid like stuck in my esaphagus before and a raw tinggling pain for while but then i took zantac and it took it away. oh one more thing when i look in the back of my mouth it looks normal. so im just confused and worried about this.
