Sore throat, was mainly when I swallowed, but now is constantly there.

But just on one side. What could be causing this?

Probably a coldly type virus, have you got white spots on your tonsils? If so you have tonsillitis . Poor you .

Allergy? I get weird sore throats when allergic.

I often have sore throats on one side only. Is this abnormal??? I think it's normal.

Are your gums sore one one side or anything like that?

Haven't got tonsils so can rule that out for definite! smile Possibly glands I'm thinking as DP says one side of throat feels swollen. Nothing else is sore, throat soreness is kind of echoing into right ear iyswim.

I have called GP and am awaiting a callback as its not shifting and im popping paracetemol like it is going out of fashion and I am worried I may harm the baby even though you can take them whilst pregnant and am taking them as directed on the box.
