This morning I called one of those video call in doctors. Vince and I have both used “Doctor on Demand” in the past and were quite happy. Another such place is recommended by my insurance so I called them and wasn’t so happy with them. The guy seemed rushed and told me he was calling in a “steroid nasal spray”. Yes . . Flonase! I ended up just getting it over the counter, since it’s the same thing and the generic brand was way less.
After coming home from getting the Flonase, I kept thinking . . I don’t believe I should be feeling this bad with sinus issues, checked my fever again and it was over 101 so I decided to go to the walk in clinic. They give a 55% discount for self pay/no insurance so I didn’t have to mortgage the house to pay for the doctor visit . . though it would have bought a lot of yarn.
The doctor looked at my throat and said “I think you have strep!” He did the test, then checked my ears, nose . . he doesn’t think sinus/allergy is a contributing factor but it was positive for strep. I haven’t had that probably since I was a small child but . . I can’t say that any more.
So, now I take antibiotics for 10 days and hopefully by tomorrow or the next day, I’m feeling better.
