Hi, I'm 28 years old and am in the worst pain of my life. The doc won't give any good pain medication because of my sleep apnea so I'm pretty much having to suffer with it. My tonsils were the size of golfballs he said, and therefore the heal time would be longer. Well I woke up this morning with this white crap all over my tongue, and my tongue is tingling. My ears are about to explode. My throat hurts like hell. Let's not forget my feet are swelled up to the size of balloons. I'll gladly take any advice anyone has.
