My surgeon wanted to check out my vocals so he put this long instrument in my nostrils to check. He said they were fine. Later that day I got such a bad cold and it has lasted 4 days so far. It's like I got a reaction to an foreign instrument in my body. My nostrils feel raw and inflamed. I did have some pain in my teeth that would mean I have a sinusitis but when my nose drips, it's just clear.
Of course I called the doctor right away but his office and hospital office where closed for holidays.

Just wondering, has anyone else gone through this? And what did you do about it?

Thanks in advance for answers!
