So I developed a cold about a week ago, normal symptoms sore throat, runny nose, cough, hot and cold etc etc.. I'm feeling a lot better but now I have this horrible feeling in my throat (especially at night) I can swallow but it's annoying, it's irritating and so so dry! Water doesn't even help! I've been drinking a lot of lemsip (will this be the cause?) the dryness has woke me up from my sleep and now I just can't get back to sleep. I have feelings of needing to cough but because it is so dry I can't and it makes me gag. It feels like something is stuck in my throat! It's so horrible, I also feel terribly sick! I always do throughout the day. I don't know what to do.. It's driving me absolutely insane. I can't even cry to let the stress out because my THROAT is to dry I cannot seem to produce any saliva!
Any ideas on what this could be?? Anything I can do to relieve it so I can get some sleep! thank you!
