I have got it severely, and up until tonight I had no idea that it basically could not be eased at all. I had been suffering from this from the word go but it vanished for a few weeks and has now returned with avengence. It's REALLY affecting my day-to-day life, ie: sleeping, breathing, swollowing...... Tell me Im not alone, please. It is REALLY getting to me. Who else has had this and how long did it last for you?
