For the past 2 to 3 days I have had a sore throat. At first it felt like it was just my post nasal drip acting up ad irritating my throat and causing it to feel like there is a lump in it. The lump feeling has gone away however I think I might have small little spots on the back of my throat. The spots aren't white like in tonsillitis, but a lighter skin color. My throat is sore and it feels better while I am eating the pain almost goes away. I don't have a fever and I don't really feel like I have a cold, I do have the sniffles a little bit though. I do have asthma and it hasn't affect my lungs either. As for what I am trying is : I take Airborne a couple times a day and at night I take NightQuil (to help me get some zzzzs
), I also use cough drops to sooth my throat. I was curious if anyone had a clue about what's going on in my throat??
Also I do not have health insurance at this time and I am heading for an appointment Tuesday to start the paper work for setting up Medicaid.
I was wondering if anyone has any ideas on what can help fight this cold off??
