Hi! I am a 20 year old female. Earlier this week, I was having fever, chills, upper left side and back pain, sore muscles, and a tight chest. My throat was sore, but not too terribly bad. I also had slight nasal congestion. This was on Monday. I went to the doctor and was diagnosed with strep throat and put on a z-pak because I'm allergic to penicillin. He told me to see him today (Wednesday) if I wasn't feeling better. Well, I feel worse, and on top of it, I have excruciating pain when I move my eyes at all. I have no interest in eating or drinking anything. I ate a salad and soup last night, and got very sick afterwards. I really don't have the money to see the doctor twice in a week. Should I be worried or wait it out?
