Throat And Neck Bad

ive been drinking heavily for 15 years. i havent worked in 20 and my day is spent in bed by my computer. i lay down pretty much, my neck has hurt for alot of years, not serious pain but serious enough to be a problem. just recently its been getting bad, i wake up from sleeping and its bad, i cant even lift a spoon up to eat.

this is what really bothers me. i live by myself and am on social security, i dont get to eat alot and like ten years ago my whole mouth and throat are just dry and uncomfortable. i smoke alot and legal tobacco from a pipe. the throat part is really bad. ill have to spit and alot of the times i have to vomit, i have a garbage next to me and can happen alot during the day, sometimes im gasping for breath and i get a headrush.

what can i do for my mouth and throat, its really bad and for a long time. its just a dry bland taste for years

i understand the drinking makes my neck hurt and my whole body, what can i do

What can I say, my friend.   You are abusing your body, and the combo of smoking/drinking is a risk factor for throat issues, including ulcers, cancer, etc.

You need to see a doctor to find out what is going on.  In them meantime, try not to smoke so much, if you can.

Good luck.

You have money to buy cigarettes and alcohol.  

Actually, I was giving you advice that I thought would help you in the long run.  "My friend" is just an expression I use to be kind.

Just ignore me if you don't like what I had to say.  Good luck.

This is a wonderful site for those that are bedridden to find friends, so it's sad that you are not considering that angle...

I did find one answer for helping with your sense of taste and smell though, online, but i forgot what it was now. Oops. You can find it if you read through the articles though. on dry mouth.
