To go to the doctors with a sore throat

I haven't had a sore throat since my tonsils were removed 12 years ago, apart from the last 2 weeks. Our doctors don't like to hand out antibiotics willy nilly. I'm fine in the morning and as the day goes on it starts to hurt. It gets so bad I can't sleep (hence the late night post) or swallow, and only on the left side. It's starting to worry me as 12 years is a long time, but I don't want to take up valuable appointment time if its 'just one of those things that will go eventually'

I think if it's something that me gone on a few weeks now op then going and getting checked out by your gp would be the most sensible thing to do. Especially if it's so painful you're struggling to sleep.

Thanks both. I'm one of those people who hates to go to the doctors incase it worse than what it is. Silly really! I'm curious though I haven't had a cold or no other symptoms to go along with it.

I've had that, it got to the point I was crying even talking hurt. Dr said that couldn't see infection, said it was swollen lymph node (Ffs DONT Google like I did) and booked me in for scan. Turned out I an abnormal large vein on that side. Was given no explaination or anything else. I've noticed that it only happens to flare up when stressed or run down.
