Hi Doc,
My neck and throat have been rather sore for the past week.. My neck almost feels like the tendons are tight but then my throat also gets sore.. Do you know what may cause this as it staring to worry me?

Thanks

Hallo George
If you have a sore throat the outside soreness may be due to swollen glands. If your thoat is sore when you swallow and looks red or yellow, you may need to see a doctor for a prescription of antibiotics. Neck muscle stiffness can be treated with deep heat or voltaren gel.
