How it started :
Just when I was celebrating my ongoing Root canal treatment ,I woke up this morning with discomfort in my throat. I immediately drank a concoction made with a powder that I always have at home. I always keep stock of this powder and consume it whenever I sense some trouble in my throat. I get this Mishran powder from my Ayurveda Doctor.
The usual worry started as I began to think how I ended up with a sore throat. What might have triggered this. I have been successfully managing well for the last two years and never did it get this bad.
BTW my son caught a cold three days ago and I was constantly giving him Herbal remedies. Today is the third day and he has almost recovered.
Did I catch the bacteria/virus at the Dental clinic. This was precisely the reason why I was avoiding to visit the Dentist. Was it at Starbucks , I hadn’t visited any eating place during the last two years.
Me and my son did a little cleaning at home a few days ago. We did wear masks while cleaning. All of us are allergic to house dust and do our best to keep the house dust free.
Was the dust ,after vacuuming, lingering inside the house and did we inhale that dangerous stuff or did I catch the virus from my son. I made sure I was nowhere close to him during the last two days.
Hmmm….whatever be the reason , it is here to stay 🙁
Advise from my Ayurveda Doctor:
Called my Ayurveda Doctor and described my symptoms. I asked him if I should go for a COVID test and he told me to wait for a day.
Whenever I have severe sore throat, I usually end up with Bronchitis. I began coughing up watery phlegm and when I told about this ,he suggested a Herbal tonic. I was able to get this tonic from a local Ayurveda store
If the Bronchitis gets severe ,I will have to start taking nebulisation. I have a portable nebulizer at home. The doctor advised me not to start nebulisation yet.
It is 6pm now. Since morning I have been taking the Concotion and the herbal tonic every 6 hours. Not feeling comfortable yet. The irritation in the throat continues.
Hoping there will be some improvement by end of the day.
