Hi, I am 26 year old, couple of weeks back, I went to mumbai on an official trip and then one night we had lots of liquor (i'll say like 2 beers, 2 lits) but didnt have dinner. I woke up at 1pm(next day) and had a pizza an hour after having the pizza I felt pukish, heartburn, and also a pain in the center of my chest (kind of discomfort) around 8pm I took digene which eased out my discomfort a little. The next day my eyes were pretty heavy and I felt very exhausted I thought I had a stroke so I started ors which gradually helped me come out of this. Thereafter I used to have dizziness whenever I ate anything. I came back had some tests done it came out to be that I was low on vitamin d (4. 5) and high on eosinophils(9. 9) I was asked to take 60k iu / week along with deworming. Things have started to become normal for me now but I kind of have issues while breathing especially at night. One day I felt so bloated that it became very hard for me to even breathe.

Tonsils are the two oval-shaped tissue pads at the back of your throat, which function as a mechanism to protect you from diseases. Any infection of the tonsils is referred to as ‘tonsillitis’.
You can suffer from tonsillitis at any age, but it is more commonly diagnosed in children. Tonsillitis is highly contagious.
There are two types of tonsillitis:
- Chronic tonsillitis— Longer episodes of acute tonsillitis
- Recurrent tonsillitis— Recurrent episodes of tonsillitis in a year
Tonsillitis can cause viral and bacterial infections. The ‘Streptococcus (strep) bacteria’ is a common cause. Some other causes include:
- Influenza virus
- Epstein-Barr virus
- Parainfluenza virus
- Herpes simplex virus
Since tonsillitis has various causes, symptoms too tend to differ. Some symptoms include:
- An extremely sore throat
- Painful or difficult swallowing
- Scratchy-sounding voice
- Bad breath
- Stomach aches
- Stiff neck
- Neck and jaw tenderness due to inflamed lymph nodes
- Tonsils that become swollen and red in colour
- Yellow or white spots on the tonsils
In children, symptoms such as excessive drooling, increased irritability or poor appetite are usually noticeable.
If the tonsillitis is mild, especially caused by a virus, it usually doesn’t require any treatment. More critical cases of tonsillitis might require treatments such as tonsillectomy (a surgical process used to remove the tonsils) or administration of antibiotics.
Penicillin is the most commonly administered antibiotic. Once commonly performed, tonsillectomy (surgical removal of tonsils) is now reserved for extremely critical cases.
