So ended up in the out of hours doctors today as I'm not getting any better even tho I've been on antibiotics for almost a week!! He confirmed I not only have tonsillitis but also an inner ear infection and a chest infection. Gutted that I couldn't go to look at carpets today but spent the day in bed looking on line at carpets! It's only 10 weeks and 5 days until our estimated completion date. I can't wait to be in & having our space! #firsttimebuyers #newbuild #firsthome #interior #homeinspo #homedecor #myhome #homestyle #interiordesign #home #interiorobsessed #homesweethome #showhome #lovelyinterior #homeideas #housegoals #propertyladder #newhouse #planning #housetalk #newbuildadventure #newbuild #planner #ourfuture #saving #isense #tonsillitis #elsenham #crestnicholson #elsenhamvale

Tonsillitis refers to inflammation of the pharyngeal tonsils (glands at the back of the throat, visible through the mouth). The inflammation may involve other areas of the back of the throat, including the adenoids and the lingual tonsils (tonsil tissue at the back of the tongue). There are several variations of tonsillitis: acute, recurrent, and chronic tonsillitis, and peritonsillar abscess.

Viral or bacterial infections and immunologic factors lead to tonsillitis and its complications. Nearly all children experience at least one episode of tonsillitis. Due to improvements in medical and surgical treatments, complications associated with tonsillitis, including mortality, are rare.

Infected tonsils in a 22 year old patient. Thanks jdudleysmith. Tonsils are made up of lymphatic tissue ( they are actually lymph nodes) but have become evolutionarily redundant. The body contains hundreds of lymph nodes, so their removal is no great loss. They are frequently removed in children who have numerous sore throats due to tonsillitis, or in adults who suffer from obstructive sleep apnea or recurrent tonsil stones. Tonsillitis means an infection of the tonsils. Infections of the tonsils are generally caused by streptococcus bacteria (as in strep throat). The tonsils become red and inflamed while small white colonies of the strep organism are found in the tonsillar crypts, which are little indentations found on the surface of the tonsils. Patients with strep throat or tonsillitis tend to have bad breath (ozostomia) until the infection is cleared up. People with chronic sinusitis and post nasal drip may develop tonsilloliths which are tiny, white, foul smelling stones which lodge in the tonsillar crypts. Sometimes a tonsillolith can be pried out of the surface of the tonsil with a pencil, tweezer or other small pointed instrument leaving what looks like a little "hole", but is, in fact, simply the tonsillar crypt in which it formed originally. Tonsilloliths sometimes give the feeling of something lodged in the throat. They can also contribute to bad breath. Some people have chronic problems with tonsilloliths. The only sure treatment for chronic tonsilloliths is removal of the tonsils. The operation is performed by an ear, nose and throat specialist (ENT) and is fairly simple and safe. The operation causes a very serious sore throat for two weeks post-op, but the benefit is that the patient suffers no more tonsillitis or tonsilloliths. #follicular #tonsillitis

I had an entire update written and it disappeared. Why does this keep happening? Has anyone else experienced this? Typing up whole paragraphs and tags but as soon as it published the text is gone, deleted?
To summarize what I had detailed in my first attempt: all of my appts have been pushed into march. I have my new allergist appt on the 3rd. My original appt was meant to be last week but they require you to be free of antibiotics and antihistamine which unfortunately was not possible as I was right in the middle of my regimen from my last anaphylactic episode and ER visit. I'm now two full days off the antibiotics and I expect another anaphylactic episode sometime this week to be honest. In the last two months it seems I have an episode, get an antibiotic regimen, I'm okay but four or so days off the antibiotics the swelling starts up and it doesn't stop until I'm in the ER unable to swallow or breathe. ---------------------------------------------------------------------
I have the MRI of my hand scheduled that same week, the 6th. This test should definitively diagnose RA or rule it out and I'm honestly terrified. When you get a dx there is an adjustment period but then you accept your dx and work to treat it and live with it. Having it taken away is a good thing usually but it's another adjustment to your mindset and it's draining to go back and forth. I have several other appts and tests scheduled for March but right now I'm just sitting and waiting and it's so destructive. I'm in a pain flare, with the length of my spine being the worst, only making me worry something else is at play here. Other new symptoms have cropped up but how do I take my health seriously without sounding like a hypochondriac? I just want to be well. I'm not even asking for full and functional health anymore, I just want to be BETTER.

My first day sick in 10 years!!!! Always feel I'm letting people down going sick but with an inner ear infection, chest infection & tonsillitis It's needed! Laid in bed with these two watching repeats of the bill whilst looking at house stuff!!! #firsttimebuyers #newbuild #firsthome #interior #homeinspo #homedecor #myhome #homestyle #interiordesign #home #interiorobsessed #homesweethome #showhome #lovelyinterior #homeideas #housegoals #propertyladder #newhouse #planning #housetalk #newbuildadventure #newbuild #frenchbulldog #snugglesinbed #tonsillitis #sick #elsenham #crestnicholson #elsenhamvale

First nutritious meal in 5 days...being ill isn't fun especially when you can't eat most foods and you LOVE food!! But no pressure has been put on me to eat as I would normally as that would just have made me worse, therefore i've listened to my body to help it recover #protein #fats #listentoyourbody #tonsillitis #antibiotics #icecream #soup

I didn't think mums get poorly πŸ€”πŸ˜ͺ #tonsillitis #poorlymummy #totallyfeelingsorryformyself
