I`ve already written a thread about my healing process that you can read here; [url]http://www.healthboards.com/boards/showthread.php?t=600184[/url]
I`m currently on my 2 month mark since my first surgery(7th April) and for the past weeks I`ve started getting a sore throat. It happend all of a sudden for about 2-3weeks ago, back at the time I was drinking nothing but water, and only eating babyfoods and proteinshakes. I couldn`t figure out at the time what was causing it, and thought it might have something to do with the water...
I started to drink some grapejuice instead and more milk. It helped a little but I was still pretty sore, and each time I drank a little water it would burn my throat..
I took a peek down my throat and noticed that the left side of my throat(on the pic.) was much more red than the right and I am pretty sure it is the source of my soreness. It seems that it only reacts to liquids, and that water is main culprit, foods, bread, even hot stuff goes down ok.
I cannot understand what the problem is and why I suddenly got it now, I`ve never struggled with sore throat ever before, maybe once or twice every 2years or so.. Also, it doesen`t hurt WHILE I`m drinking, it`s more of an "after effect" if you like... a soreness.
So I`m wondering if any of you have the same, or know what it might be?
I`ve called the doc. and have an appointment this tuesday for some blood tests and to check out what this is.
Also I`m feeling a bit lightheaded and dizzy the last few days, dunno what that`s all about.. maybe my allergies..
I cross my fingers for some good response, please help
