so i go back to the genius pharmacist who fixed my lungs/throat so significantly by recommending magnesium. i went in and told him he was a genius and that it worked really well for me. i also told him that it didn't really stay with me and i had to keep taking mg or my throat would go downhill again and my breathing would get shallow. so he says match your mg of magnesium with potassium. okay cool so clearly i need to get over my loathing of bananas... sigh... anyway will try that.
and the next thing, he says - that throat clearing; you could have lesions on your vocal cords... do you have to be loud often? and i thought, um only every day at work all winter teaching crowds of ppl how to ski, and only every time i sing now since i went for vocal training and figured out how to sing LOUD. i've been making my car deaf ever since.
so. all this time i thought it was ms stuff, but nope, it's way more likely vocal cord nodules. i had heard of those too, NEVER thought i would get them. you can see em in the photo on wiki - ewwwwww
that's totally what i thought, that there was some kind of swelling making things not close properly. and nodules from singing and yelling are oh so logical.
i'm going to skewer that throat specialist that told me i had a "bad habit" of clearing my throat! what kind of specialist doesn't ask about how hard you push it?? what kind of GODLIKE pharmacist knows everything about everything?? he is so great.
so i guess the next thing is to stick a camera down my throat fuuuun...
