Please any insight? I have taken 3 courses of antibiotics, and I get worse. I haven't had a voice in weeks and I have had the feeling that glass or something sharp is embedded in my lower throat (I know its not glass) I have also noticed a strange smell in my sinuses. I do have high blood pressure but it has skyrocketed I went to er and it was 191/136...I am gaining weight and I feel as if my wrists look swollen sometimes. I was a smoker until a month ago.
