any tips, to ease this?i couldnt sleep last night- even started to get panicky about my swollen throat had a sore throat since monday but now just feels swollen.
i have no tonsils, but am regretting that now. removed as a teenager.thanks for that hedge... at least the holidays are over
thanks. hot lemon and honey all day.plus soluble paracetamol.i would i am sure know to suggest this to my dc but was unable to cope with my own pain
i probably should whisper this, but when i have a really sore throat, i find a mouthfull of alcohol ie, vodka/whiskey swallowed as slowly as possible works a treat.
of the night time obviously, not when dc are up
i ^like6 that loopy perhaps a hot toddy
Perhaps some anti-inflammatories like ibuprofen might reduce the swelling?
that is an idea, if you can get soluble ibuprofen. or just the hot toddy
Tbh I would see your GP or out of hours service.I had this about 3 or 4 years ago, it became increasingly painful to swallow over a couple of days. I couldn't eat and only a couple of glasses of wine would dull the pain. I was prescribed diclofenac.Do you have any other symptoms?Hope you feel better soon.
thanks mercy, will see how it goes. if i have such a bad night i will consider it tomorrow, however i do have (like a lot of us) an aversion to my GP
I know what you mean.I just happened to be away for the weekend at dh's aunt's house so I had no choice tbh (and it was a bloody bank holiday)Hope you get some sleep and let us know how you are tomorrow.
hey I've got this too, had it since MondayYou haven't been kissing me, have you?
i think it would have known (ouch)
