about 3 weeks ago I had strep, that was confirmed with a rapid test. I was given 10 days of penicilian 4 times a day. It seemed to respond well to that treatment. but since finishing the antibiotics my throat has been getting sore again, and starting around 4am this morning my uvula has been hanging down lower and touching the back of my tounge causing constant gag reflex responses, it is worse when trying to eat/drink anything. I have been keeping my self hydrated, and dont smoke. when i cough it hurts, but if I happen to sneeze its the worse pain I have ever experanced.
I have access to 2 dr's in my area and both are not back until next week sometime. And sitting in the hospital for the next 8 + hours waiting to be seen doesnt sound like fun either. I have tried taking advil, tylonal compleat. and am now thinking of trying benadrylView Thread
