American Sign Language: "sore-throat"

Also see: "THROAT"

If I had a sore throat I'd use a loose "G" handshape and move it down the throat twice while using a pained expression.
Don't you feel sorry for me?  (Note: Some people just spell S-O-R-E and sign throat.")

You might also see this sign used to mean "my throat hurts."  Thus is the sign for "pain/hurt" done near the throat.

Suppose someone is a "pain in the neck?"  That would be shown by using a single hand twisted into the side of the neck.
"He (or she) is a pain in the neck!"
