After a week of antibiotics and anti-inflammatory pills, I feel better, but certainly not 100%. I've scheduled a visit to a throat specialist this afternoon because I still have some symptoms that I'm concerned will not go away on their own.
I continue to cough so much that the other day I "popped" something out of place in my windpipe and now have a clicking sensation every time I swallow. That, and it still burns in my chest when I try to take anything but a shallow little breath. Beyond these annoying symptoms, I generally still feel unwell, out of energy.
My mom reminded me that I've had antibiotic resistance in the past, so I did a little digging in my old journals to see if I could find the medicine that caused me trouble. Wouldn't you know it's the exact same one the doctor at the clinic here put me on last week? Sigh...
So I'm off to the Sommerschield Clinic where hopefully Dr. Jorge will find a solution for this persistent laryngitis, if that is indeed what I have.
