I feel like death

I feel like crap. I am going on day 7 of what can only be described as an epic illness. Day 3 of no voice, day 2 of zero sleep because my throat is so excruciatingly painful. I can't breath, I can't swallow, and I can't talk. SO Mr "doctor" man, when I explain all this to you in a whisper b/c that's all I can manage and tell you its getting worse and that i'm in so much pain it makes me cry when I cough, your prescribing me some EXTREMELY ineffective pain killers and telling me to "wait it out" makes me want to HURT you. I'll be damned if I'm missing Thanksgiving b/c you are "uncomfortable with antibiotics" I can't even tell you the last time I took them so just prescribe them already DAMMIT! You shall be reciving a telephone call from my husband as soon as your office opens. Normall I would take care of this sort of thing myself but you'll have to forgive me b/c my throat is ON FIRE AND I CANT FREAKING TALK!

Oh no, I hope that you feel better soon. Just think of how great you'll feel when your throat is better and you can scream at him.

Is the man crazy. You need an antibiotic. Its not like you're taking them everyday. Is he a homeopath or something. Find another doctor quick. He sounds like a total quack.

hate to tell you that if it is viral and not bacterial, there will be no antibiotics on earth that can help you. That is why your doctor is not prescribing them.

I'm calling this strep throat, since it sounds just like my symptoms when I had it last year. They can do a rapid strep test in the office, at which point they will prescribe antibiotics if it's strep. You'll have to go in, rather than getting them over the phone, but if you go in today, at least you will have no sore throat by Thurs, and you'll be able to eat turkey. I hope you get well soon!

at least he gave you something, I had to make two separate trips to even get a proper examination.

The first trip involved the Dr. standing as far away from me as possible, using the phrase "what does that mean" 5 times when I told him my symptoms. I have a cold, What do you mean by cold? My throat is sore, what do you mean by sore? I'm coughing-what do you mean by coughing?...

I'm now on week three of coughing, sore throat, stuffed up nose and sinus pain. Sometimes a second opinion is called for. hope you feel better soon

Docs who will give pain killers but not antibiotics are stupid. If he still won't tomorrow, go to Urgent Care. They tend to be not quiet so stupid.

The last time I was that sick with all those symptoms, it turned out to be Mono. Just be on alert if you feel the need to nap all day.
