I am seeing my GP on Tuesday and the ENT crowd the following Tuesday.
Liquid paracetamol sounds interesting. Have never tasted Calpol but as long as it isn't too sweet or too acidic it could be OK, but it is the Oxcarbazapine and Naproxen which are much more of a problem and leaving me shaking and my eyes streaming because the burning sensation in the mouth and throat is pretty unbearable.
I have written my usual essay for the GP and will do the same for ENT.
Yes, the swallow X ray showed that the muscle at the base of the tongue is weak and that the tongue isn't reaching the back of the throat as it should (could have told them that for free) - also that the epiglottis is hardly working at all, but it is not the epiglottis that worries anyone (apparently one can survive without a working one of those) but the working of the tongue. I am worried about the working of the tongue too - because it isn't! Working that is.... I have been given tongue exercises to do, but so far not a lot is happening. The trigeminal problem seems rather prevalent at the moment and I have just about choked myself to exhaustion today.
Life's a bitch - then it has puppies.
