If you read the link to WebMD, I had every symptom that is listed. The doctor did in fact take a throat culture. Here are the symptoms to look for:
Well, the only difference is that I no longer have tonsils, yet my lymph nodes were indeed very swollen. Even today I still have pain swallowing and a lot of congestion.
It is my public service announcement that if you have any of the above symptoms, get to your doctor yesterday.
Thankfully, Mrs. RVFTLC is a persistent one.
I felt sick Wednesday, it hit like a ton of bricks Thursday and she insisted that I go to the doctor on Friday. Which I did. See, I really was sick. I would normally argue. But I knew whatever it was I had to go.
And yes, it takes a long time to even marginally recover as I am now.
And I hope to at least get a post in on how voting was here in California this past Tuesday.
Again, if you are feeling ill and have any of the above symptoms, get to the doc right away.
