Hi all! Just need a push to get my thinking back on the right track.
I woke up Friday with a sore throat. Felt like it was from post nasal drip so didn't think anything of it. However no congestion or stuffiness or cold symptoms appeared. Felt wonky that night and woke up Saturday with it still there. No fever, cold symptoms, or loss of energy. By Saturday night my glands were sore on the sides of my neck and no improvement in sore throat. I googled "strep" to see if this was something I should be seen for, and what pops up on my screen? Stuff about throat cancer!!! That hadn't even crossed my mind but of course it got me thinking and now it's Sunday. Throat is still sore, tender swollen glands, and new worry over cancer.
I'm going to our local urgent care this morning since it's been 3 days and we leave on vacation Monday, but now I'm worried something could be really wrong.
I'm also concerned that if I do have strep, my 1 year old has been exposed
I miss the days when these ailments didn't send fear coursing through me!!
