Hi Dr Cameron
Uvula is still inflamed but better than before. I've been hydrating lots. I'm taking a natural product called DHist, Drinking and gargling with sage tea(luke warm) and ice cold water wit 1/4 tsp of turmeric and have also tried some colloidal silver throat spray. All that helps but the overall inflammation is still hanging on (no pun intended).
I also have a little bit of a stuffy nose and itchy eyes(which may be an allergy but I have also been around my parents who were visiting and were under the weather) Throat is feeling a little scratchy and when I swallow I get a cartilage click or crack around the area under my adams apple. (This comes and goes)
I'm not sure how long this is supposed to last?
I did try benadryl on the 2nd and 3rd of october as suggested-helped sleep but definitely makes me feel drowsy during the day and not so clear in thought (not a feeling I enjoy of -course)
I went to the cvs minute clinic and the doctor there, I felt, didn't really bother listening well or caring-prescribed fluticasone nasal spray which I have not tried as I am not sure a steroid is what my throat needs, or my nose.
I am only a last resort allopathic medication or antibiotic user-I prefer to exhaust natural or mild medication first as I have not used traditional medication since I was a child.
My breathing is still OK no obstruction there, I am sleeping better as I have become more used to that feeling on the back of my tongue.
I value your advice and thank you for checking in again.
