I have complete laryngitis today, nothing comes out of the pie hole when I talk (hubby's loving it). But, seriously I feel like crap. I was up most of the night last night because my throat is so painful, ate ice chips all night. Anyone have a good sore throat remedy? I'm so tired of feeling like $hit.
If you eat ice is worse. Will leave you without voice. the best thing is strepsils or something like it, and a hot tea with honey.
Yes, get some colloidal silver and take immediately. Or oregano oil will also do it. Kills bacteria and viruses fast. But you need to take as quickly as you can when you notice symptoms, so if you're going to use it, get it fast.
You use silver like you use an antibiotic. About two weeks and then off. Your body needs to clear it all out. You can google colloidal silver and learn much more if you're interested.
Get better quick!
YEP............... But I feel for Carl so I'm Not telling Ya
Have been wondering. My kids have all had this, the little germ spreaders. I figure it's just a run of the mill virus, but if it's not better quickly I'm off. Hate doctors.
Hell I hope they put the thermometer in the right place WS
where I live, they told me...
"Sounds like swine flu. Stay home, you can not come in. We will not see you. We are banning all people wiht swine flu like symptoms from coming in. We dont want you to get the other patients sick. Drink lots of fluids and get some rest."
So much for tamiflu.....
Ohhh, hope you feel better, warm up some whiskey, it will help, add honey and go to sleep. Good luck.
I had this too. I saw yor post the other day, about how you sound like demi, and i chuckled, cuz Ive been told the same thing before. try gargle with salt water. Do you have, sorry if its gross, but..alot of phlegm, postnasal drip? you can gargle with a solution of hydrogen peroxide and water. Its gross, but it works. I am so sorry yoyr so sick. I honestly know how awful it is, I have been sick 2 times this fall already, and I quit smoking!!!! you got the neck pain and body aches and all? You could also try a Hot Toddy. A little one, to help you get some rest. The most important thing is sleep,(and liquids if ya can getthem down..) but its so hard when your so sick. Hope you get better soon!! It does go away, I promise.
Thanks for that and YES, check on all the above symptoms. Achy, the whole nine yards. It's so sucky trying to have enough energy for the kids when they get home from school. And, of course it's going to be playdate (and slumber party) central here tonight. I will try the hydrogen peroxide and water. How long did yours last?
I homeschool all 3 kids. Hubby kept saying...its jsut allergies, suck it up...till he got sick and I had to take care of him...
I was real real sick about 5 days, then it gradually got better. I devloped a nasty cough towrads the end, and that didnt go away even though I felt better, for about ....2 weeks total? the throat thing got better in 4-5 days. I lost about 10 pounds in all, betweeen not being able to eat or sleep, and throwing up every time I coughed...]
Its awful, I know. Get some rest. I would recommend postpoing sleepovers, if you can, to avoid spreading it....
Lemon and Honey will soothe it.
Strepsil's help numb it.
Hope your better soon.
Guess I'm dumb, but what are Strepsil's? Never heard of 'em.
Well...you sound the same to us...if that helps you feel any better. (And I hope you do feel better!)
By the way: Tea, Lemon, and Honey...like folks are saying...is good stuff...to get your singing voice back!
But at least you can type Look at all the cool hubberhelp/love you're getting. Throats are mainly for swallowing stuff anyway. You can always write things down (harshly and in CAPITALS) to indicate ire and so forth.
I hope you get better soon WS
What Irohner has suggested for this (Strepp) is Cider Vinegar - warm it gargle it or even drink it.
It acts as a mild antiseptic and is not harsh on your digestive system at all (as Hydrogen Peroxide will be).
Every Hour and you will find that it kills the bugs... not pickle them.
Just did it, not a happy camper as I smell like a big honking pickle, BUT my throat does feel better. Thanks, Dr. Pearl.
well, your not supposed to swallow it...gargle means you spit it out after...
I only said that because it is in the directions on the back of the bottle, and it helped get rid of the boogers in my throat. Really did nothing for the pain, but the crap in my throat was causing the pain..see? I am sure vinegar, as a non chemical thing, would be way better!!! I just never heard of it before.
Will toatlly try it out next time I am sick. wordscribe, if you have the cough, your throat is on its way to better, but you still have some stuff to get thru before its all over. I betchya your throat and voice are on the mend my tomorrow. For the cough, the best advice I ever got from a nurse...take Guinafeson..im sure I spelled it wrong..but it is the main ingredient of Mucinex...only you can buy it in generic, for alot cheaper...and it works. Loosens the mucus right up, no side effects,fantastic stuff. im all for natural remedies, I hate drugs, but this one so far seems to bve ok.
Thanks, yeah it does seem the junk draining into my throat is what's pissing it off so much. I know the stuff you're talking about that starts with a 'g'. I'm going to the drug store now. Thanks again for the support, you're like my virtual nurse.
OH no!! Ihope I didnt give bad advice, its just how i lived thru it...
cough meds, frequently called tussin..just make sure it is ONLY an expectorant..no suppressant, thats what can cause pnuemonia to set it..good luck!!! I am currently 100 percent better, with no lingering stuff. I am sure you will get over it too!!
May gargle with cider vinegar, but please dilute with glass of water if going to drink it. add spoon of honey for drinking too. Full strength cider vinegar will blast your stomach walls.
dilute dilute dilute for drinking please.
Thanks, rednckwmn... I already have the revolting cough which is ever so much fun for the fiery throat. Thanks for the support. Glad you're feeling better.
Interesting, Daniel. That's a new one for me... It's always interesting to hear what people do for home remedies. I've learned a lot today. I just gargled with apple cider vinegar and it did help... Oregano oil, huh? Thanks for responding.
PS, CALL OFF the sleep over!!! I know, one of THE worst things, is to let your kids down, but you need rest, and the other kids parents will thank you.
I had this last month. Tea with honey is the best recommendation I can give but add a little lemon to it as well
WS if all this fails
Then consider the BumbleTown Cure for Strepp Mouth...... They Send their Teeth Out for Dry Cleaning!
I don't have any new advice, but I hope you're feeling better soon.
In my country when we have a severe sore throat or flu like we drink: Rum,Lime, and honey.
It works and tastes yummy.
There's always TheraFlu as well. Hope you feel better
Thanks so much, everyone. The cider vinegar is a big help, taste hiedeous, but I don't care. I guess I'll have it on my bedside table tonight. Strange, but effective. Everone had such great suggestions. No need for WebMD with HP!
the only thing i can add to all the great advice you've gotten is that when i am sick with a sore throat, i find relief with Popsicles. they sort of anesthetize your throat because they are cold. plus if you have a fever they make you feel a little cooler...root beer or banana are the best.
Thanks, cosette. I forgot about Popsicles, will see if I need them tomorrow. I've been gargling with a warm water and apple cider mix which has really helped. What a crummy day, I must say. Really wanted to pump out a hub, but when I have a fever I'm worthless. Maybe I'll write a hub on sore throats. Hope you're well!
Hey W.S. - hope you feel better soon! If not, get yee to the doctor to rule out strept etc.
I actually like your idea of writing a hub on sore throats - go for it! (when you feel better of course)
aw..thanks! I appreciate that!
Hey, feel free to contact me when you feel better. It would be fun to hash about social work and "other" topics - if you get my drift.

What is the one thing that gives you strength and hope when you feel like it is all a lost cause?Do you ever have one of those days when your just about ready to throw in the towel and then there it is that glimpse of hope and inspiration? What gives you that drive to turn it all around?
