As per your query,you had Cold and Tonsillitis.
If there is no response to your antibiotic course,please take Azithromycin or Clarithromycin tablet.Add anti inflammatory drug along with anti histamine tablets.
During coughing ,there will increased intra abdominal pressure.During sneezing also,many muscles will be acting involved.Nerve supplying the back muscles might be stimulated and leading to shock like tingling sensation.
But,nothing to worry.
Add B complex with antioxidant tablet daily.
If you take the above drugs,all your complaints will come down.
If you have any query,i will clarify further.
Wish you good health and speedy recovery
