Hi im not sure if this is the rigth place to post this but here it goes :

Im a 20 year old male and last tuesday/wed I became sick. It started as sinus drip to my throat plus sore throat and a fever. Two of my friends who I hang out with were also sick at the time. They were both over there symptoms bye 5-6 days. I Started taking aspirin and doing sore throat remedies to make me feel better. Bye Friday I actually was feeling a lot better. Then I whoke up Saturday with worsening sore throat. On top of this, my sinus were draining clear mucus like crazy. Not stuffed up mucus though, as I can breath through my nose fine, just coming right into my throat. This kept making me "halk" up the mucus and continuously spit it out into a cup all day. At this point my sore throat is getting worse. Everything I do wont help it at all. The next day its worse again. At this point it feels like razor blades when I swallow and it feels swollen. The pain is mostly right below my chin and to the upper right side where my voice box/ windpipe is. In addition to this, I have developed a very hoarse and sore voice and when I go to clear my throat it becomes unbearable. It's 7 days later and its only getting worse and bye the hour at that. So my question is what does this sound like, and what should I be doing for treatment ?
Thanks for you time.

  • You need to see a doctor. You have either sinusitis or other bacterial infection. You probably need penicillin. Get well!

  • Thanks for the responses. I went and saw a doctor an hour after I posted the message on monday and it is indeed strep. I was given a script of penicillin and I feel 10 times better then I did before I went to the docs. First time ive ever had strep and hopefully the last.
