Who Needs a Doctor?

Who needs a doctor when we have WebMD? Remember how I keep saying that I have no other symptoms other than a sore throat and a fever? Yeahhhh… seems that one of the signs you have Strep Throat is that it does “not occur with coldlike symptoms such as coughing, sneezing, or a runny or stuffy nose. In general, the more coldlike symptoms you have, the less likely it is that your sore throat is a strep infection.”

I have no coldlike symptoms. None. However, I do have a sore throat that started sudden and severe.

Oh … fun.

You don’t even necessarily get a sore throat with strep. I used to get allergy shots and the nurse would look in your ears and nose and take your temp first. One day she asked if I had a sore throat, and I said no. She did a swab, and lo and behold, I had strep.

Feel better!
