So I think I have strep throat....

The past 3 days I havent been able to sleep more than 3 hours. Thats about how long the advil lasts then the pain comes back. Everytime I swallow it feels like I'm eating thumb tacks. I have white spots all over my tonsils and my lymph nodes in my neck are all swollen. I look like I have two marbles implanted under my skin lol.

No honey in my house....I have gargled salt water, listerine, whiskey(which was a bad idea), lemon juice, 50/50 mix of listerine and hydrogen peroxide, and a concoction of lemon juice/salt/hot water/that sore throat spray with Phenol in it. Ive been sucking on enough cough drops with benzocaine and DXM in them that I feel like im starting to trip out a little. Im halfwway into my second box.

Nothing is working. I read somewhere that cayenne pepper in hot water gargled helps and it kind of does but I think it just distracts you with a different kind of pain.

Im drinking coffee with an 1/2tsp of cayenne and a butt ton of cinnamon in it. Feels good going down but my stomach hates all this pepper.

Someone help me out with a remedy. I have doctors appointment for 3:15 today but thats so far away.

Maybe hell take my tonsils out and set me up with a scrip of penicillin and vicodin. OooOoo sleep, that would bring it on.

Re: So I think I have strep throat....

My mom said it could be mono too. Apparently it could go either way? I dunno I guess it's possible, the night before I got this I was at a friends bday party and we were playing beer pong with community cups. bad idea. I could have gotten either but who the **** goes to a party with strep or mono. Mother ruckers. Yea. Plus on top of this I have work tomorrow. I work outside on a ski mouintain, and if they are blowing snow when Im sick im going to get pneumonia.

Re: So I think I have strep throat....

strep throat sucks... but you better pray its not mono. you won't have any signs of it for a month or two after being infected. also, mono has a fever and makes you really sleepy along with the sore throat and swelling.

so its probably just strep throat (which also sucks).

you could try blood letting... that always seems to work (or kill you)

Re: So I think I have strep throat....

actually if you gargle salt water that's suppose to help clear up strep much quicker, or go get meds.

"In addition to taking antibiotics, other ways to relieve strep symptoms include taking nonprescription medications (such as ibuprofen and acetaminophen/paracetamol) for throat pain and fever reduction, and getting plenty of rest. Also, gargling with warm saltwater (1/4 teaspoon of table salt in 8 oz. warm water) can help relieve throat pain as well as warm, plain tea. Avoid orange juice or other citrus drinks. The acids in them may irritate the throat."

Got this from wikipedia: Strep throat - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Re: So I think I have strep throat....

I called off work. I got a scrip for Amoxicillin. Im 5 pills into it and I havent seen any progress which isn't bad but isant good. Hopefully in a day or two I will start to see some progress.

You people should see my tonsils, they are almost completely red and theres so many spots on them its disgusting.

And I did get wasted last night n8r, didnt work because I did fall asleep for about 3 hours, but as soon as I sobered up I woke up with badass pain in my throat and couldnt sleep. Im hungover and sick now. I want to blow my brains out....

Definitely not something smart to do with your tonsils like that...

Re: So I think I have strep throat....

There was one year when I was young I got strep about every other 2 weeks for a year strait. I cant get it anymore. Though I definately dont try to ha. I feel you on that. I've also had mono which ****ing sucks. If by chance thats what you have. You have about 2 weeks of what your feeling right now before it goes away. Then your immune system is ****ed for a while. For about 3 months after I got over the sick part of mono. I got a cold 2 weeks later. Then 2 weeks after I got over that I had a really bad case of the flu. I ran a 103.7 temp and my parents almost took me to the hospital. Then 2 weeks after I got over that another bad cold hit me. Now i'm back to getting sick only twice a year.
