Strange, persistant swollen throat
This all started around a week ago, I began to have a sore throat and couldnt really speak, but I had just been to a music festival and put it down to shouting to much. But on Thursday last week when I got up to go to work, the bit that dangles down the back of your throat (larics?) had swollen up massively you could hardly see past it. But I took some Ibuprofen, anti-inflamatory painkillers, and sprayed some covonia and gargled some oraldene mouthwash I got from the chemist and the swellinh went down. But now 4 days on from that morning, my throat is still very painfull, difficult to swallow and swelled up, and I think it would swell up more if I stopped taking any of the medicine. I just feel like it isnt getting any better, and the things im taking are just trying to make it easier to cope with and not actually healing it at all. Should I go to the doctor, or should I leave it for a bit longer to see if it gets better itself? I dont really want to have to take time off work.
