Chronic enlarged tonsils and nasal discahrge, child 13

i
My daughter, since baby, gets sick with a cold all the time! She s now 13. As soon as she gets sick, she complains of her throat, i can feel enlarged tonsils and glands that are hard and big ro the touch.
Only once she had to take medication for tonsillitis. Otherwise they don t seem to get infected, just painful and swollen.
Sje aslo has constant sniffles even if not sick, or they say until the next cold. She does not blow her nose, it s not dripping, she seems to be swollwing it, days and night, with sniffles.
What can i give her?
I ve seen to the. Doctor who says she has large tonsils that all, but did not rally give me any answer. She constantlytakes throat lozenges. Winter and summer.
Can anyone recommend a remedy?

Motion sickness yes, and sensitive to the odour in the car.
She is not as carsick now but she still can be.

Sense of smell i belive normal

Enlarged tonsils. I think that is what i feel. They are always very big but bigger and painful when she gets sick. Had them checked, doctor says they are just veey big.
 
nanou 6 years ago
She does not show too much fear in general. I know she does not like insects for sure and got very scared one noght because an ant was crawling in her ear and now she is sometimes scared that insects are crawling in her ears when she sleeps. Otherwise she does not share very mich what she thinks etc.

She does not like to wear scarves for aure or turtle neck but she does but she does not say she does not like things aeound the neck.
Otherwise she likes very tight pants and t shirts. Never really com,ains of being cold actually evenmthoug winters in canada are cold.
I hope this helps.

Forgot aout consolation.
I like co solation only when people aknowledge my sadness.
Last week i took a very important exam that required 4 years of studying, exam was veey hard, too hard for most of us, 4 hours non stop. I had a panick attack in the middle, felt dizzy (i was already dizzy when areiving at the exam, day 2 of periods and much studying), i atarted feeling pins and needles all ocer body, waves of anxiety going up my body, then i decided to breathe and calm down so that i could focus again. That was very strong. The next day i felt very depressed, worrying about failure, empty feeling in my body, like dispair, went to work and a collegue of mine asked how i was doing. I said honestly as always, i m not so good, i m feeling down, she replied. Come on, forget about that stupid exam, why are you still thinking about i etc.... I hated her. I felt so misunderstood. How can someome be so uncompassionate and unsensitive! So i dont do so well with comsolation if i feel people dont accept my feelings... I then prefer to be alone.

fitness 6 years ago
Symptoms occur all the time, ringing in ear all the time, but less when not tired, dizziness and spots in vision and blurred vision same, floating is all the time, but strong dizziness lr vertigo sometimes, sometimes naisea with it but more rarely. Night sweats much better if i pace myself but any busy day will brong on night sweats. I have symptoms 6 days out of 7, better with rest and relaxing, worse woth stress and busy days.

To relax, i like to write. I like nature and take walks but dont do it enough. Many days i m must to tired and o nothing. I like tv programmes about animals, nature, health related programmes, psychollogy. I used ro like swimming. I dont like to listen to music very much.
Appetite is good actually. When i had the shock some years ago, i could not eat, but this has passed. I eat everything my family, husband and kids eat. Not too hungry in the mor ing. My problem is i like snacking and like to have some sweet at the end of the meal.

I m a hard worker (only when i enjoy what i do). sont like hiearachy at all and don t do well with a boss. Not too many hobbies, just having a coffee at a coffee shop and see people walk by is enough for me.
I also like to travel a lot, since teemager, and like to discover new culture .. Am very open minded and like to learn new things. But now i don t enjoy travelling as much because i dont feel well.
All symptoms are annoying but the dizziness for sure. They knda all get worse together. Also the fact that i cannot do as much as i want, and as much as other people. I m supposed ro launch my business but i am unable to.
 
nanou 6 years ago
I m about 5'5

Mostly legs, sometimes on worst nights, whole body except hands, feet and head.
