Throat infection is final straw

May 26, 2016 10:58 PM

I have chronic pain in my neck and upper body, only at the moment I also have some kind of throat infection. I don't have any tonsils so I think it's viral, my glands have gone crazy. I have a breathing condition that's caused by part of my throat and this is playing havoc with that too. I haven't had a throat like this in years!!! AUGH just too much pain in an area that is already in too much pain. I'm ment to start my first graduate job next week, just part time to start with, and later tonight is my architecture schools exhibition that by some miracle I've managed to get work into. I'm so annoyed this has happened now. It's 4am here, normally sleep is the most relief I get, not tonight! Sorry everyone I really just needed a rant 💞

Busholive, I'm so sorry. Being under stress always complicated my issues. I'm wide awake at this time, even after surgery and taking Hydrocodone. What does your throat look like? I have 2 issues that chronically affect mine; sjogrens & thrush. The sjogrens causes tiny pinprick bumps that burn, sting, and hurt. I just have to ride it out. The thrush (yeast infx) is from asthma inhalers mostly but sjogrens flares can cause them too. I Gale extra well with saline water to flush is of the surfaces, and take Mycelex trans to remove what's deep in my throat. It always gives me laryngitis. I hope you get to feeling better soon! Hugs & prayers!! 🙂💕🙏🌼

Oh Busholive, I can understand my daughter came down sick overnight Tuesday night into Wednesday morning and I took her to the doctors office and Strep throat has it as well as pharyngitis, so my babygirl can't talk or swallow hardly anything at this point. You are in my prayer's Busholive, I pray that you get better before you start your new Job you worked so hard to get! Prayer's and love. 🙏💕
