Has anyone suffered from this? I don’t know if it’s from a bacterial infection or irritation through tight bibs and cycling.
Had ibuprofen & the pain is much better and the swelling seems to have gone down a bit already. That’s a good sign.I had one episode of this around 30 years ago - it's never reoccurred.
Do visit your GP in case it does need AB's to treat and/or there is some underlying issue causing it.
This is sadly a horrific story. Maybe one benefit of Brexit has been found?I work in the food industry with a very high percentage of East European workers where (among many other parts of the world, TB is endemic. I think it was 2013, a very bad winter and the packhouse i worked in at that time was very cramped with LOTS of workers in a small area, many of them cough cough coughing with colds and viruses. I duly caught it and couldnt shift a cough for weeks and weeks, went to the docs with earth shattering lethargy and night sweats, had antibiotics but nothing would shift it. I had a dose of Pleurisy at this time as well. Eventually my company had had several workers diagnosed with TB and called in the authorities who did a screening of the entire workforce and i think it transpired 13 of us had contracted it.
TB, was treated for 6 months but that and the resulting pneumonia and pleurisy has damaged my lung irreparably (but thankfully...i hope..not in a longer term life threatening way)
