About two days ago I started feeling a sore throat (didnt think to much of it, I always get a sore throat before I get a simple cold). Yesterday this simple sore throat progressed into what is now one of the worst pains I have ever felt in my throat. I have had strep throat twice when I was young and dont think that this is yet, but it feels like there is gravel in my throat whenever I swallow and it is unbearable. Also, I dont want to stand up to get medicine which is only 10 feet away because I am having horrible stomach aches. I have also had minor diarrhea, headaches, nausea, head rushes and the occasional coughing up of a thick green/yellow phlegm ball. I have no idea what is happening, but any information would be helpfull. So far no throat numbing medicine has helped what so ever.View Thread
