I often have a mild sore throat, and I’m not sure what it comes from. I’ll have to ask my doctor about it when I see him on the 23rd. Could it be a side effect of dex? It feels like my throat was burned – that same feeling you’d have if you swallowed some hot tea. I’ve also had the same sensation on my tongue. I do have a bit of candida on my tongue (thrush), so maybe that has something to do with it. It never lasts more than a few days at a time.
