Since Thursday I have been feeling pretty awful, all over pain, chills, fever, nausea, vomiting, coughing, nose running, and the worst sore throat I've ever had. Needless to say I have not been worried about what I eat, if I could even eat (seriously sore throat). As the days passed the sore throat got worse and worse finally breaking me down today in tears because I didn't even want to swallow. There aren't any quick cares (over an hour away) around here so I begrudgingly went to the emergency room at 5 this morning. I got diagnosed as having Viral Pharangitis and possibly even step throat (the test came back negative, but the doctor said that it could still be positive).
Now my questions, while I was given pain meds for the throat pain it only makes it bearable and not completely go away; what can I eat thats still healthy, but doesn't feel like razors going down. I need something more than soup now too.
Secondly, I know it doesn't matter, but I like to keep track of everything I eat on the daily plate. Well I ate ice cream yesterday to soothe my throat and threw it back up like 5 minutes later...should I record it?
If anyone else has had this and knows any way to make the pain go away at least a little bit more please let me know. I've tried salt water gargles, every drop and OTC that I could find. Also, I've tried gatorade and ginger ale.
Sorry, if this doesn't make much sense I am currently on hydrocodone
Thanks for the help
