Almost immediately, I started coughing up CLUMPS of mucus, not liquidy or slimy, but more gelatenous (sorry if it is too much info), and
the Aleve DID help with the soreness and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span>
... for a while. Eventually, it is almost like whatever it was was altering itself to resist what I was taking. A few days later, where the Aleve initially was completely relieving the pressure
and soreness, soon, it was only relieving the pressure
, and the soreness persisted.
