Sick (172.2) by Laura N Patient Expert Posted Thu 25 Aug 2011 12:00am I have strep throat. I started feeling bad Tuesday at work, then Tuesday night my throat started hurting.

As I’ve probably mentioned ... by Danielle L Posted Tue 13 Oct 2009 10:05pm As I’ve probably mentioned before, symbicort is a great thing for me, I’m so glad I have access to it. The side effects are mild and worth it one hundred times over. All I’m saying is that these mouth problems are new and weird. If you’ve had anything like it, please leave me a comment! About 2 weeks ago I had a really sore throat and white ... Read on »

Not How I Saw It by WhitneyGuin0314 Posted Tue 06 Dec 2011 5:25pm Do you ever stop and think mid-day, this is not how I saw my day going? That’s how it was for me today. When I got up to take Bailey out I opened the back door to find this: My first instincts were…”awwww, how pretty!” It was still coming down when we went outside and I loved watching Bailey jump and play in it. I got in my car to ... Read on »
I'm Angry by Alyson Posted Wed 24 Jun 2009 2:05pm So I don't normally write more than one post in a day. I also don't write when I'm feeling sick, but this time I needed to write so that I could clear my mind and go to sleep. I'm angry. I went to the walk-in clinic today (see previous post) to try to get a throat culture, as my current symptoms are what I experience when I have a bacteri ... Read on »

Stevie Wonder Therapy by Laura N Patient Expert Posted Fri 25 Mar 2011 12:00am So this week has been a bust. Sunday I spent on the couch, depressed, "hormonal," and basically out of it all day long. The day was filled with sloth, food, and self-loathing. Then Monday morning around 5 a.m., I woke up freezing cold with a sore throat. I shivered my way to the kitchen for a handful of ibuprofen, put on some warmer PJs, and ... Read on »
Is Your Throat Sore Just Before Your Periods? by Dr. Steven P. Medical Doctor Posted Thu 28 Jan 2010 7:14pm 5 Comments Here's an interesting observation by more than a handful of my female patients: Their throats are sore for a few days just before their monthly periods. It doesn't go on to a cold or other more severe symptoms. Just a transient sore throat. Then it goes away. If you've been following my blogs, articles, and especially if you read my book, S ...
