How To Deal With Enlarged Tonsils And Fatigue?
Greetings Hello, I am a 19 Year 10 Month Student.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The tonsils (tonsils) are one of the glands whose function is important to maintain endurance. In the tonsils, white blood cells stop and multiply, especially when there is an infection around the oral cavity and throat.
Enlarged tonsils accompanied by weakness can indeed indicate inflammation (tonsillitis). The triggers for tonsillitis can vary, but the most common is a viral or bacterial infection. Because they are inflamed, the tonsils will become enlarged, reddish in color, painful (especially when swallowing food), and the sufferer can experience various other systemic complaints, such as fever, muscle and joint pain, nausea, decreased appetite, weakness, and so on.
Not only because of inflammation of the tonsils, it could also be that the weakness you experience occurs due to other causes, such as hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), anemia (low blood hemoglobin), dehydration (lack of fluids), hypotension (low blood pressure), viral or bacterial infections. other, lack of exercise, lack of sleep, fatigue, and so on. In addition, swelling of the tonsils can also arise due to other causes besides inflammation, for example due to tonsil cancer, peritonsillar abscess, and so on.
Our advice, seeing your complaints that have been going on for more than 3 days, you should check yourself directly to a doctor or ENT specialist. The doctor will directly inspect the condition of your tonsils and identify possible causes. If necessary, further examinations, such as x-rays, ultrasound, blood tests, tissue sampling from the tonsils for microscopic examination can also be done by doctors to make the best diagnosis. If it is true that your tonsils are swollen, and the swelling is so large that it has the potential to interfere with breathing, interfere with sleep, or also become a focus of infection that is prone to spreading to other organs, then the doctor can also not only give you medicine, but also recommend that you undergo surgery.
In the meantime, to improve your complaints, try the following tips;
Use a nose mask

Do not smoke
Diligently brush your teeth, then rinse your mouth with salt water
Drink more warm water
