Got diagnosed with strep tonight. With a temp up to 103.8 and all the associated aches and pain, not to mention the sore throat, it's not fun. The doctor said it's going around here in the American northwest, and I'm sure it's all over as well. Come on antibiotics!

Thank God you have come through the worst of it JM. I pray that you are on the road to recovery. Love and blessings Chris

Just a note to say I am much improved, but not quite out of the woods. My glands are still slightly swollen, but much reduced, as is my temp. It only took me a week before I felt like getting in the shower, but the dogs and cat didn't care (at least, not as much as I did!). Clean sheets also do wonders. I've lost about 15 pounds this last week, but wouldn't choose to do it this way again. It really felt good to walk out to the mailbox in the 73 degree sunshine, too. My main concern is that I gave it to my son who took me to Urgent Care. I've been saying a few prayers about that. Thanks to all for the good wishes; they ALL helped.

You also need to drink, drink, drink. You dehydrate fast with a temp that high, and you will also need to flush the Antibiotic through your liver and kidneys /Lillian

You'll feel worlds better by the third dose. Don't forget "strep" has the letters r-e-s-t in it!

It's a worse infection after an infection, and you have no energy. If someone in the family has it, everyone has to take antibiotics.
