    So I've had an annoying cold for a couple of days but recently I've developed the most painful throat I could ever imagine! Every time I swallow I have to prepare myself because it literally feels like I'm swallowing sharp blades.
    I am wondering if anybody has any suggestions for how to relieve this just so I can get more than 3 hours sleep tonight?! Also, is a doctors visit worth it or will I just be told it's a cold so get plenty of rest etc?
    It has been agony all day. I'd appreciate any replies. Thank you in advance.

    Literally boiling water. Juice of half a lemon and 3 ish teaspoons of honey
    It tastes awful but it got me through a Uni interview when i'd made my throat bleed through coughing.
