About four weeks ago, I came down with one cold. Got over it for a week, came down with another (or maybe the same one?). Now I am finally over the cold, but in the mornings, I still have crud that comes out of my chest with coughs and constant throat clearing in the morning.
My coughs were pretty bad, bad enough to hurt a lower back muscle. But the coughs have since quit.
What has bothered me the most lately (besides the prior cough) has been a sore left tonsil (my left). At first, right after I was getting over the second cold, both tonsils were sore. The right one quit being sore, though. The left one is swollen from what I can tell. I'm not a doctor, however.
Today and yesterday, the soreness has kind of moved in a sense. It's almost as if the soreness is similar to when you are about to cry and your throat hurts.
I went to a doctor last week regarding my coughs and sore tonsil. She looked at my tonsil and said it was a little swollen. She asked if I wanted anything for the coughs and I declined as I was pretty much over the coughing by then, except for morning time.
I do not understand why my soreness would move down my throat and feel like a "crying" soreness. It is maybe half and inch below the laryngeal prominence. I'm still blowing some partially green mucus out, but only in the morning, and not much. I feel fine otherwise.
