It all started late January. I had a night out and the next day I woke up, and had a horrible throat pain. It hurt when I swallowed. After a day or two, when the pain wasn't going anyway, I started taking some anti inflammatory throat spray. During the next week, things started to get better.
However after couple days I started coughing a lot - again, no other flu-like symptoms other than coughing (no muscle pain, headache, temperature) just pure plain coughing. Taking cough syrup didn't really help, but after a week, it got slightly better and I only coughed when I went to sleep (a lot, like I was waking up in my sleep cuz of the cough)
Then I visited my GP, she took my blood and sent it to a lab. Weird thing is that all results came in negative so it wasn't any bacterial infection. She told me she thinks the coughing happens cuz of potsnasal drip (or sth like that, i.e. mucus in throat which irritates the throat to cough). She gave me local antibiotics for my throat and it seemed to help. After 5 days, I was all good.
Now it's more than 10 days from it and almost 6 weeks from when it originally started. Again, Im starting to cough again and every day when I wake up, my nose is fully blocked and throat full of mucus.
Basic info: Gender: M Age: 21 Location: UK Height: 195 cm Weight: 78 kg Smoking: Don't Current medication: None Previous relevant health conditions: Had a septum surgery 2 years ago (used to get sick a lot and deviated seltum was one of the reason of mucus being blocked)
Any tips what is happening to me? Thank you
