Reoccuring Sore Throat And Ear After Bronchitis - Virus?
Began early June with a head cold. Healed, then early July came down with another head cold, but this time much worse. Totally blocked 3 days, then 3 days couldn't stop blowing. Came right again, and mid July it was bronchitis, which went to my lungs and became a chest infection. Took antibiotics supported with some good herbal remedies.
Two weeks ago started with a raspy throat, which came and went. That settled, but keeps coming back, but now with a slight ear pressure. Not bad, but sometimes feels like it's my throat and other times like soft palate. All one side, and I've no idea what's going on. No cough, no high temperature,feel a bit sniffly but not blocked up at all.
Went to Dr last week and she thinks it's a virus as a result of the bronchitis. She said they've seen a lot of this reoccuring, and can take up to 6 weeks to go. I also had a bit of neuralgia and I'm wondering if it's connected to that instead. I'm not totally convinced it's a virus.
I do suffer with health anxiety, (not hypochondria), and don't need people to panic me, but would like to hear from anyone who has gone through same and come right.
Anyone else had similar?? Thanks
