I awoke yesterday with a sore throat and chalked it up as PND issues. The strange thing is that it stayed all day even with taking benadryl. I still have the sore throat today. I had abdominal surgery 3 weeks ago and was placed on pred to help with inflamation and yesterday was my first day without it. I also ran a low grade fever last night and have been having pain in my abdomen. I keep monitoring my temp due to my surgery, it was my 3rd one in 4 months for crohn's disease with issues of perforating intestines ostomy abscesses and reversal of ostomy which is why I monitor my temp frequently. My temp was 100.3 last night so I was slightly concerned but it dropped down a little on its own. I dont know if I am getting sick or if it is my surgery area. Today I have no fever yet, knock on wood, I just do not want to go to the hospital if the fever is just from my throat.
I also have asthma and so far it is staying as it has been. I am allergic to all pollen, dust, cats (I have 2 and work at an animal hospital but I have not returned back to work and have been out since Feb), dogs, and molds as well as peanuts and I also have oral allergy syndrome. Today my throat seems to hurt more on the right side but it still a little sore on the left.
Can anyone help me please do you think this sounds more like allergies or starting of something else?
