I had a cold but it's been two and a half weeks. I still have congestion in my nose but nothing more than a bother. What concerns me is my throat!! It's not ichy, or scratchy like most cold related throats are. Cough drops, warm liquids, the throat spray, gargling things, nothing is helping because it's not like that. It hurts so bad to swallow, cough, yawn and sneeze. I've gone to the doctor twice since i've been sick and they just said allergies, it'll clear up with four weeks. I am miserable and waking up in the middle of the night though. I had sore teeth, ear aches, and even bloodshot eyes for a few days but the congested nose and the incredibly sore throat is all that's left! I don't know what to do about my throat! I can't sleep or even swallow!
