The Update

To be exact, that picture shows EXACTLY how I looked when I woke up in the morning. I was worse off then when I went to sleep at night, I couldn’t swallow and it hurt like hell. My left side was all puffed up and my neck muscle was killing me so that wasn’t helping. I called the doc around 10 am and was going to pass by around 12pm, and he remembered when I showed him the lump the first time. This time it was huge lump and my neck was killing me, it was hard to get up because it took a lot of energy to move my big head, you never realize how heavy your head is until this happens. At this point in time I can’t swallow anything, it practically hurts to move, and the towel I had wrapped around my neck was pretty damp from my sweat. At least I don’t have a fever anymore and I was happy when he came along. 

He prescribed the following:  

  • Augmentin (Antibiotics)
  • Prednisolone (Anti-inflamation)
  • Di-Antalvic (Pain Killer)
These are all french meds and they might have equivelents in Kuwait or other areas. I had a strong dosage of antibiotics from the first day and it has really helped over the course of the pain. The size has decreased by at least 30% and I’m no longer in constant pain.
