Please help!

Hi everyone,early this winter I had issues with my tonsils and chest which have pretty much cleared now although my GP says I have large tonsils.For months now I have this nauseous feeling daily in my upper throat/under chin/back of mouth area.I'm a rugby player and I get the "about to get sick" feeling before practise,I think this is because I'm thinking about it,I also get it any other time I think about it or if I open my mouth wide or if I'm in bed before sleeping,I have gotten sick because of it before.My GP has given me medication which hasn't done anything and my coach tells me to take immune supporting supplements which haven't done much. I would greatly appreciate some feedback as I desperately need to get back to rugby,thanks a lot!

  • Are you taking anything from the GP still

    They always say that the older you get the chance of removal is problematic.

    Depending how you are and how long you have given the medicine to work, you will need to go back and see your GP

  • I am still taking the medication,the GP said he is not sure if it will work,I'm 17 years old by the way,GP said he thinks it might be tonsil related but not sure what it is

  • They are reluctant to take them out these days, so He will be wanting t he swelling to go down.

    Some people in early life can have problems with them until they get older, hopefully they will sort out soon.

    I understand tonselitus (excuse spelling) generally clears in two to three weeks. You may need to have them taken out although as said before they prefer to leave them alone.

  • Yeah I am put on a waiting list to see a specialist which could take around a year as there are people in much worse conditions than me,thanks for the feed back,appreciate it

  • Ok so just from experience. I was 29 and discovered I had tonsiloths. And my tonsils were swollen unilatteral. Which scared mw my dr assured me it was normal with tonilloths but I thought I knew better and went to see a ent who said I needed them out. I was a bleeder on day post 12 and had to have another surgery. I am ok now but boy it is rough on us the older we are. Took a full month to recover. I think u are fine. Just allergies

  • Thanks for the feedback,what do you think I should do? I've had this for a few months now and it is not going and is stopping me from sports

  • I think you should seek your gp
