So I've had fevers, chills and all for the past week and a half. A week and a half ago, I noticed my throat becoming a little irritated and itchy. A few days later, I noticed pus on one of my tonsils. It was only this week on the Monday where my left tonsil started swelling up, making it diffcult to swallow, eat, drink and sleep.
I've been taking paracetamol, doing aspirin gargles, difflam gargles and taking ibuprofen.
It's worsened these past 3 days and even though I made 2 entries into the ER, they prescribed me codeine the first time which didn't do much and endone the second time which was good temporarily - until I felt like the world was spinning around and I vomitted 6 times the same day afterwards.
Anyone here who's had infectious mono/glandular fever who has had pain like this? I'm in my 20s, and I've never had pain like this before. I can barely drink (I actually can't eat) and it's so frustrating because I've got a ton of assessments coming up next and I've missed so much class as a result of this. I can't even sleep at night becuase I'll wake up after 2-3 hours in pain.
Anyone got any tips? I'm getting so desperate here and I just want to cry out of frustration.
