yes, hospitals can take random patients. you have to go through the ER. isn't there an Emergancy care center you can go to? you should contact your primary Dr. first and tell the front desk you are sick and need see someone today! be persistant.

I would do that, but my doctor is in Bethesda and I can't get there without a car, unless I take the bus and I've never taken the bus so it freaks me out and I'd have to walk a distance too. I can't afford an emergency visit. I can't even afford a regular doctor. Stupid tonsils.

can your dr. in the mean time call a prescription in until you get to a dr in your area?

one time i had strep throat and i just shrugged it off. when i woke up one morning, it had made my neck so swollen i couldn't move my neck at all, not to look up, down, or to either side. it was then that my spine got crooked.

yes, i now will have back problems forevah because of untreated strep.

fever, sore throat, swollen tonsils - usually so bad you can't swallow your own saliva, headache, flu-like symptoms, etc.

The only way to know for sure is a throat culture.

I had all the symptoms a few months back but it turned out to be a virus The worst I ever had all my saliva turned to this hard goo and I had to spit it out every 5 minutes. It was the worst case of strep thorat my doctor said he had ever seen.

I was knocked out for this whole weekend...with what I thought, for sure, was strep...but I went to the dr. and it was a bad ass sinus infection. Owww, the pressure on my face and head.

I think it's going away on it's own. I may go to the doctor anyway because my glands are still a little bit swollen and I want to make sure it's not just pretending to go away only to come back even worse. Meh. I don't wanna spend the money, though.

I went to the doctor and got a prescription for antibiotics which cost me a small fortune (). And the people at Rite Aid thought I was a shoplifter or something so now I feel like the world's biggest reject. Today already sucks.
