Thanks. This morning it was worse so I had my husband look at my throat and I have white spots and very red tonsils. Made an appointment for this afternoon. I am pretty sure it is strep. If it's not I will be surprised.View Thread
Hello, One of my co-workers came into work on Saturday and told me he might have strep and he had to leave early from work to go to the doctor. We teach gymnastics classes so we are in one room and work closely with the gymnasts. Well, last night at he informed me he did indeed have strep throat and was put on antibiotics. This morning I woke up and have a terrible sore throat and a low grade fever. Is it possible to have caught it that quickly or does it take a week or so to catch it. Obviously, I will have to have a throat culture done to confirm it, but I don't want to rush to the doctor if it takes longer that a few days to catch strep. ThanksView Thread
After calling my doctor's office and speaking with the PA she said to give it some time to go away and then call back if I was still having the shortness of breath. Well Monday I was still having the problem and I went back in today and I am now on an inhaler. Hopefully this will help with everything. I am ready for Spring to come to the midwest!View Thread
Yes I did. She said that should go away after a few days. It hasn't gone away yet. I am sure going ice skating outside in 20 degree temps. was not a good idea last night. It was hard on the lungs. Lots of fun though! I will be calling the doctors office tomorrow if I still have the shortness of breath.View Thread
Hello, This winter has been the worst winter for me. It seems like everytime I get healthy I then get sick again. I am sure working in a preschool/daycare it does not help. I got over my sinus infection and now I have an ear infection and bronchitis. Been on antibiotics for two days now. My ear is not hurting anymore, but I still have the cough. I am anxious to start working out again. How soon is too soon to get back to working out after bronchitis? I know it's an inflammation of the bronchi and I have noticed I can't take a good deep breath of air so I know I have not got rid of it yet.View Thread
Thanks. I will call my doctor if I am not 100% at the end of my antibiotcs. I didn't run a fever all day today and I am feeling a little better. I deceided to take tomorrow of too instead of jumping back into a 9 hour day to fast after being fever free.View Thread
I am getting over a sinus infection. It came on Wednesday and I ran a fever for 3 days (Wed, Thurs., and Fri.). It's now Monday and I have not run a fever for 2 days. I am running a fever again today. I have been on antibiotics since Thursday for this and was really feeling great yesterday. Now today I feel lousy and have no energy. Is it common to go 2 days without a fever and then get one again?
