On Christmas Day, I ran a high fever, and was coughing with a sore throat. The sore throat lasted a few days, progressing onto me losing my voice (which has never happened previously), now to just having a runny nose sometimes, and a tickle in my throat almost every night (this has been happening on and off since Christmas Day). I haven't been able to sleep because of it. Every single time I breathe out, I have to cough. Its the most infuriating and frustrating thing I've had to deal with in so long, I already have sleeping problems, and now it's even more impossible to sleep. I don't know whats wrong. It's a dry cough, no mucus. How can it be post nasal drip when my nose isn't stuffed. If anything, its not as bad when my nose is stuffed. Its in the front of my throat, jamming my head into a pillow provides some relief but its barely anything at all. I'm at such a loss. I'm miserable. NOTHING works. Cough syrup? Doesn't work. Mucinex? Doesn't work. Tea? Doesn't work. Honey? Doesn't work. Gargling salt water? Doesn't work. Cough drops? Doesn't work. Drinking my weight in water? Doesn't work. Changing my position? Doesn't work. I've already tried cough suppressants and they don't work because its caused by this tickle when I breathe, and I have no idea what I'm supposed to do anymore. Does anyone else know what this is? I've had plenty colds my entire life, and I've never experienced this before. I don't know what to do anymore.
