It is a mucus problem. I've tried hot drinks with citrus and I still feel like poop

Hot tea and plenty of water....and if you have a Korean restaurant near, order Kimchi Jigae, which is kimchi soup....it helps me feel better any time I've been sick....

The OP is a ******, just let it die down by itself, drink plenty of water, no gas drinks. You can't just make a sore throat go away right away, especially when the symptoms are barely starting to kick in.

This. All these "cures" in this thread are bullshit.

Take ibuprofen for the pain and suck on some cough drops and wait for it to go away.

Also take pseudoephedrine, It's an OTC drug but it helps clear up your sinuses and any drainage you may have into your throat. Other than that, wait it out. Of course if it drags on, go see a doctor.

In addition to the helpful posters' advices above, Try swallowing your food/air HARD and test your pain threshold.

Once you adapt to the sharp pains the rest seems easy in comparison.

Vicodin for a sore throat?

Shocking that drug dependency is where it's at today.

LOL if it's really bad like strep throat, vicodin works wonders.

To be the man, you gotta beat the man. In this case, to beat the sore throat, you gotta make it feel worse.

1. Get some hot water, not boiling but warmish hot in a cup/mug.

2. Add 2 teaspoons of salt

3. Add 1 teaspoon of chili powder (the really hot kind, not paprika shit)

4. Gargle like a mofo, till your lips are burning, throat is burning, mouth is on fire, boogers bailing out of your nose, eyes watering like a b!tch.

5. Repeat.

6. Say adios to sore throat.

7. Come back here to thank me

I do something similar with cider vinegar and cayenne pepper. I swear by it.
