Just being a whinea**

So the short back story is that on the 18th I got sick. Cold/flu type sickness.  5 days later I was dx'd with two ear infections, strep throat, and pink eye. I got antibiotics for a week and never felt much better.

It is now day 13, tomorrow 2 weeks, my throat is in so much pain. I don't have strep anymore (unless it came back) but I guess he told me last time it was my insane nose problems, I've steady had the grossest fullest nose problem since day 1 - stuffy and runny and it's backing up into my ear canal, I still do not have hearing in one ear it's clogged af. And it's backing into my throat causing severe pain, I suspect especially at night since it's drying all down my throat since I can only breathe threw my mouth.

I am feeling beat. I just wish it could go away. I've probably consumed enough ibuprofen this past 2 weeks to kill me. At least 2000 mg a day. :( I just want my life back to normal. Ibuprofen, green tea, cough drops, only dent the pain or mask it for a bit but it always returns not much later.

I am calling my dr. again first thing tomorrow to bitch at them. I doubt anything will be done but whatever. I haven't been able to get any nose/decongestant meds either yet so I don't know if that will work.

Have you tried gargling with Apple cider vinegar and warm water? It was the only thing that helped my sore throat. I used about 1TB acv and warm water.
Hope you feel better soon.

Eh I wish I had some to try lol. I don't, only plan vinegar. I will get some asap though since I am likely grocery shopping tomorrow anyway.

Thanks

It's just, I can do all of this stuff to get rid of the pain but it just keeps coming back now for weeks. ugh

I don't have one. I don't know anyone with one either. I can justify going out and dropping 30 bucks on one right now. I can't even get myself meds at the moment. Gah. =/ I'll keep this in mind though.

have you tried Ocean? All it is is a saline nose spray to clear out the nose.

My DH got it after his nose surgery a few years ago.

Now we both swear by it. I am so amazed at how well saline works!

I hope you feel better soon.
