My throat hurts really, really bad. Do I have strep throat?
My throat hurting on Sunday and it's now Thursday. My throat isn't red and doesn't have white or red bumps on it. I've had cold-like symptoms such as headache and fever. I've felt really crappy. But, I don't have a runny nose or anything. Normally when I have a sore throat, it starts feeling better in two days. It's been four, and it feels like it's actually getting worse. I've been doing everything I can to soothe it. I've been drinking tea... gargling salt water..taking medicine, and using sore throat drops. It hurts so bad, I can't take it anymore. :( Do I have strep throat or is it just a sore throat?

I had a similar thing - i hate the doctors but i was in so much pain that i went - i had tonsillitis for the first time in my 20's. and was on the right anti bio tics and 100 times better within 2 days!

head to the doctors asap - even if it's bulk billers( that's free clinics in aust) if you have them where you are!

My doctor always told me if you have a sore throat more than 3 days, make an appointment. He was never wrong.

You should go to your doctor. You may need antibiotics. He will know just by looking if its strep throat or not. Or sometimes they take a Q-tip and get a sample of mucus from the back of your throat to test it for strep. If you still have tonsils, it could be tonsillitis. Whatever the cause, you should go to your doctor or the E.R. asap.
Hope you feel better soon. Take care.

I agree with the first poster- my doc always said if a sore throat lasts almost a week (he said around five days was the cutoff), you need to get to the doctor's just in case it is strep/tonsilitis/glandular fever/laryngitis/pharyngitis (sp?) etc.

Hope it goes ok!

I would go to the doctor. When your throat hurts for more than 3 days, something could be wrong. The only way to tell if you have strep throat is to be tested by a doctor. Sore throats can be the sign of a start of a cold or something more serious.

If you have done all of those things that you say you've done and your sore throat isn't any better, you may want to go to the doctor and ask him to do some blood work...
You may have MONO....with this illness, there is a sore throat that just won't go away....and you will need medication.
Go to the doctors, that is your best bet...it's better to be safe than sorry.
Hope you feel better.

Only a Doctor can d iagnose a Strep infection by taking a culture of your throat. If it hurts as much as you say it does, get it checked out.
