It started 3 days ago. I woke up with a slight sore throat. Later on that day had a slight fever and into the late evening had the chills and had a hard time sleeping. Woke up the next morning. High Fever and worse sore throat. I though it was strep so went to the doctors got a throat swab done and came back negative for strep. Now Day three, Fever is gone but sore throat still there. What's going on?
There is so much going around at bthe moment colds coughs chicken pox,you sound like you have had the flu and a virul infection maybe a throat infection which causes high fever,take paracetamol for temp and drink plenty of fluids
Well yesterday no fever, and sore throat started to go away. But today no fever, but throat hurts a lot more. Feels like it hurts more toward the back of my throat and its a bit painful to speak. What is this? Same thing is going on for my partner. He had a sore throat, fever, went to the doctor cuzz his sore throat was so bad that they gave him meds for strep. When the throat swab for him came back it was negative for strep, but a day after using the meds his symptoms completely went away. Doctor told him to stop the meds after day 3 since it wasnt strep. And now his throat i starting to hurt. We havnt slept together in the same bed for a few days but we hung out for a few hours together when he was better and i was feeling the worst of my fever 2 days ago.
So I went to the docs on Tuesday. They did 2 throat cultures. gave me a shot in my bottom of antibiotic called cerofixum, or something of that nature. and put me on amoxicillin for 10 days. 2 days after the shot, my sore throat went away, I'm now just getting over all this phlegm that was in my lungs.
Still awaiting result from my throat culture. Tested for mono, negative. Tested for strep again, negative.
