I didn't think it was strep bc I had a bit of a sniffly nose and a bit of a cough, but those symptoms seem to be going away, and the throat seems to be getting worse. Lymph nodes under chin seem to be getting bigger.
Complication is that I was in a car crash last month and have broken bones, so need help from two people-one to look after the kids and another to bring me to the doctor in my wheelchair. . .
Any ideas what this is? Thanks!
I just had a bad sore throat, followed by laryngitis and cough. Still have the cough. What seems to take away the pain for me is mixiing apple cider vinegar, a little warm water and also added some sea salt. Then gargling with it. Also tried cayenne pepper, lemon juice and hot water and drinking that but didn't work as well. The ACV has worked for me numerous times.
Our whole family has been going through mono for the past two months (first dd, then me, then dh). Something to consider...It can take a long time to get over :(
Went to see gp today who doesn't think it looks like strep, but did a culture to be sure, so will know tomorrow.
Huh. Never would have guessed that one (especially with the swollen lymph nodes). Good for your GP for figuring that out! And glad you're feeling better :)
