Causes and Symptoms of Throat Disorders

The most characteristic symptoms of acute pharyngitis are localized pain, inflammation of the cervical lymph nodes , increased body temperature, difficulty and pain in swallowing , redness, congestion of the pharyngeal mucosa and sometimes inflamed and enlarged tonsils .

In chronic pharyngitis, in addition to local pain, lowering of the voice, mild but persistent fever, frequent need both to swallow and to scratch the throat with frequent coughs are found. In many cases, the chronic form may initially be symptom-free.

Only later do cough and constant desire to scratch the throat appear, especially in the morning , upon awakening, due to the mucus that has deposited during the night.

How to interpret the symptoms

According to a psychosomatic interpretation , pharyngitis is the expression of a conflict caused by “fiery” words that were meant to be said , expressed, but were held back.

It represents unexpressed anger, blocked creativity, stubborn obstinacy, communication difficulties, difficulty communicating to support oneself, difficulty or refusal to transpose.

The individual would like to speak but the words are held in the throat and cannot express themselves freely and completely. He fears being judged and not understood and a reaction of fear is triggered, fear of facing the judgment of others with courage and responsibility. Other times he instead he can experience the feeling of having talked too much and inappropriately.
