On Saturday I caught a mild cold, slightly suffy nose and a slight sore throat. Yesterday afternoon my throat started to feel very sore and by the evening I was throwing up, not because I was nauseous but from a gag reflex. I do have a stronger than normal gag reflex and this feels as though there is something sticking down the left side of my throat.
This morning I was retching a bit, but constant Strepsil sucking seems to be helping. I'm feeling a bit washed-out, but that's probably just down to not sleeping very well. I don't have a temperature or any aches and pains so it's not flu. I have a bit of a cough, but again I think it's gag reflex rather than anything chesty or bronchial.
Is it tonsilitis or just a worse than usual sore throat?
