I am a 69 yr. old female and am Reporting what I believe is Laryngeal Nerve Damage fro Augmentin 875mg. 2x/day x2wks.
I was given Augmentin 875mg in late February for swollen lymph glands which my ENT Surgeon thought might be infection from my teeth. I had just had quite a bit of Dental work done in December.
Even the first day it felt like a hot, burning match on the back of my throat. I also had sleeplessness and some anxiety over the pain, but never had diarrhea.
I continued to take this drug for 2 weeks which I should not have done, but it seemed to reduce the size of the glands.
It has been 10 weeks and I still have burning pain in the back of my throat which radiates up the Eustachian tubes to my ears. I have ear pain, Eustachian tube pain,lymph node pain and throat pain. It is difficult to swallow even water. I went on a Low Acid Diet, have gargled with salt water and aloe vera juice (99.8% aloe), Biotene, drink Throat Coat Tea, swallow honey, chew gum and more. I had to get off even decaf coffee and off of ibuprofen 800mg/day because they were causing Reflux which caused stomach acid to splash against the painful throat! My throat cavity has reduced in size (swelling) and it is difficult to swallow food. I even cooked fried onions in olive oil and put them in a soft cloth around my neck and swallowed a small amt of Vicks VapoRub which my Grandfather use to do for sore throat.
If anyone knows of the duration or methods of healing, please contact me! Thank You for your Help!
