Really bad sore throatI have been sick for 9 days now. It started with a low fever, (about 100) and then a few hours later I had teeth chattering chills that lasted 4 hours. The fever came back later that same day but went away with Tylenol.
I also had a stuffy nose and sore throat. The congestion was all high up, around my eyes and almost nothing comes out when I blow my nose. (what does come out is clear)
The sore throat has gotten progressivly worse. Around day 5 it became too painful to eat anything but soft foods like pudding and jello. The glands around my throat are swollen and very tender. On day 6 I started to get pain in my ears when I swallow. On day 7 I noticed some white/grey patches on the back of my throat.
I have had slight headaches bt they have gone away with the Tylenol/Ibuprofen I have been taking. I also have been rinsing with warm salt water and using a warm mist humidifier.
I have tried to think of everything you may need to know to recommend treatment. I cannot go to a Dr. because I am bedridden from a rupturred disk and I have no insurance. Any natural remedy suggestions will be so greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance! Deb

I do have some wheezing that is affected by cold/warm air which is normal for my mild asthma which is always aggravated when I get sick.
