So I'm still dealing with this stupid sore throat, but ibuprofin seems to help, so I am taking one of my hospital-grade ibuprofin tablets at night so I don't cough and can sleep. I was mad this morning, though, because when I woke up to feed DS and then woke again this morning, my throat hurt as much as it did when I went to bed instead of feeling better. I thought, well, ibuprofin isn't working anymore; time to call the doc.
As I was getting dressed this morning, I put my hand into my jeans pocket to flatten it out, and guess what I found in there? LOL. I had stuck the pill in my pocket last night because I was also having ice cream, so between my ice cream mug and my glass of water, my hands were full. I planned on getting to the couch, taking the pill, and then relaxing with my ice cream. Seems I missed a step!
As an aside, I am wondering if I should just go get some Claritin and see if that helps before I call the doctor. It is an approved med according to KellyMom, and since the pain seems to come and go (it's not too bad right now but will feel like I am being stabbed in the throat come evening) I'm wondering if I really have developed allergies.
