Nothing like being lectured by the doctor. And I got lectured HARD. Apparently I should go see a doctor as soon as a sore throat starts, not when it gets bad. Because antibiotics work on ANY kind of sore throat, and wipe out ALL germs, not just the strep ones. So if I had gone to the doctor on Saturday afternoon I probably wouldn’t be choking on a cough every five minutes right now.
I filled the prescrip at CVS and immediately took my first dose. I’m to take a pill twice a day for five days. He said he’d call tomorrow to let me know if I have strep, but in his words, “You pretty much have every symptom that I can see.” Nice.
