Tonsillitis but what is this noise!

Sorry for the whinge but I’m desperate here. Had tonsillitis for a few days, prescribed AB for 10 days. My uvula is SO swollen as well as tonsils full of infection.

The problem is there’s a weird noise coming from my mouth almost like a snore every time I drop off to sleep. I feel like crying. I’ve not slept in 48 hours properly apart from 10 mins here and there.

It’s like a weird vibrating noise. I’ve tried sleeping sitting up, with my head right back etc but nothing works.

Anybody got any idea how to stop it.

Please sad

I presume it's swollen tissue vibrating unusually. It may not go until your tonsils/uvula get smaller again.

Why is it keeping you awake? Genuine question: many people sleep snoring/vibrating/etc. Is it too loud or are you anxious about stopping breathing/similar?

Thanks Maid. The noise is so loud, so when I’m drifting off it wakes me up, so I’m never getting into a deep sleep. Just feel really rubbish.

Took a decongestant and a Kalm. Frigging desperate measures here.

Have you tried sucking ice (or deepthroating lollies) to reduce the swelling?

Yes have been having ice lollies frequently thanks. Don’t think it’s done anything but the coldness is soothing.

Had to laugh at deepthroating an ice lolly grin

Ibuprofen to help swelling and difflam spray will numb you up but I get the same with tonsillitis, can hardly breathe and snore like a pig it’s awful
Hope you feel better soon x

Thanks Kaykee, I’ve got the difflam mouth rinse and a chloraseptic throat spray, to be honest they aren’t really helping sadly. Just hoping the AB will start to work soon! Can’t take Codiene as it affects my stomach.

It's a stridor. It's like a reverse wheeze. DD1 had one as a baby, she grew out of it.
