Question Day 3 - hard to swallow - why? Tips?

Day of was acceptable, day after (day 1) had headaches but could swallow somewhat ok. Day 2 seemed ok, swallowing took only a few seconds to prepare for and was manageable. Now day 3 and my throat feels like it does not want to work and swallowing is very VERY difficult.

From reading the posts here I guess this is from the scabbing that is happening? Is that true? I've been drinking water frequently, using ice packs, sitting up day and night, even have a humidifier in bed room. Now on day 3 I can barely force my medicine down???? Yesterday I was able to eat a jello and baby food bites... The way I feel now I don't even want to swallow?

What did you do to ease the process. I want to continue drinking plenty and am excited to try some mashed potatoes but the way I feel now it seems nearly impossible?
