This just plain pisses me off. Yesterday, I woke up with a sore throat, was quite bad and we didn’t think to go to urgent care till after it was closed. We called my ENT specialist Dr Walner, and he said to get a culture. Mom went to my Primary care office and picked up a culture kit came home swabbed my throat and ran it back to the office. This makes things a lot easier for me when I am sick and minimizes my exposure, the doctor’s office then processed it for Strap throat and it came back negative… I mean Strep throat, though I have a lot of straps and like a lot of straps. ;)
They are sending it off to the laboratory for detailed culturing, and I will have news by Thursday or sooner of what type of infection it is. Hopefully it will clear up before then.
