Stick a fork in me. Goodbye cruel world. I'm done for, done. Insert dramatic tone and crocodile tears for better effect.

Sure did and some Norco for the pain. They wanted to give me a shot of penicillin but I refused it and asked for the pills instead because I'm a big baby and can't handle a needle lol. So now I have to take four pills a day for ten days... Better than a needle though hehe

Strep sucks! I've had it once and that was enough for a lifetime. Feel better!

I knew it.

I had to get a shot in my hip the first time I had cellulitis. Talk about painful!!

I got strep really bad when I was 16. I think it came on pretty quick. My throat was so swollen it hurt just to swallow my own saliva.

I'm actually surprised at how excruciating the pain is. Of course I've gone untreated for days and its really bad by now.

Vivi-if you don't start to feel better after a couple days, call back. It means the meds are not working!!!

Leaving Strep in your system, untreated can damage organs and have side effects you don't even know are related. If the antibiotic are working, you will start to feel a bit better after a few rounds of it.

I hope you feel better soon!! Strep STINKS!! (I would have put in a stronger word but it would have been bleeped out!!

I agree. In fact, I asked the doctor about my heart because untreated strep can cause irreparable damage to the heart. I kept waiting to go to the doctor because it didn't even look like strep to me. As the day wears on I feel worse and worse but I only had the one dose of antibiotics. I can't wait for the first twenty four hours to go by...

Maybe you could try taking papaya or acidophilus to help your stomach?

Rosey, I feel a little better but I think I need a few more doses for the pain to go away. My stomach is more settled too. I'm just tired.

Jen, I will definitely need to take something and not puts for my stomach, I worry about getting an overgrowth of candida in my body causing a yeast infection. I have tons of yogurt. I might need to pick up some juice though.

I have to tell you. I took just one Norco last night and it gave me a trip LOL I was screaming in my sleep and talking all kinds of weirdness. I'm supposed to take it every four hours, I think not LOL

You can get papaya chewable capsules if you don't want to drink the juice.

When I had strep they didn't prescribe any pain meds. I wouldn't have filled it if they did though. Maybe they did and I don't remember? I'm stubborn. The first time I took pain meds, other then Tylenol 3, was after my hysterectomy. Even then I started with half of the suggested dose.

I hate pain meds. This time though I had been in horrible pain for too long and I was starting to lose it. My pain level is definitely down right now so there is a good chance that I will not need any more of it.

oh hugs to you Vivi! Strep is just horrible.

Our first encounter with it was crazy. My boys were young - preschool and kindergarten. Both got this wicked stomach virus that hung on for a few days but they got better. Two weeks later, Katherine got it. At the same time I got very sick and had a feeling it might be Strep (had it when I was 10 - never forgot) I had a doctor appt made already when K started throwing up blood - scared the living daylights out of me. We went in and sure enough I had strep. They swabbed Katherine and she had it too! No sore throat at all, just high fever and non stop vomitting. I had mentioned the boys had the same thing as Katherine a few weeks earlier and Dr told me to bring them in ASAP. Sure enough, they both tested positive. Talk about feeling like the worlds worst mother!!!!

Then it began. Every other month or so, a kid would start throwing up - we would immediately run to the doctor and yep, strep. Just about the time the doctor was ready to remove everyone's tonsils, it stopped. Go figure...

That's crazy! I was ready to go in and get my tonsils out yesterday. I'm not so brave today though. I really want to get the girls tested but nobody has any sick symptoms at all right at the moment. I hope it's just me...
