Whoa hot flash! So how long do you wait to go to the doctor? I woke up Monday with a very sore throat, which has persisted and included more problems by today, Thursday. My ears are stuffy and hurt when I swallow, and I’ve had a very slight cough which hasn’t been productive until today. (I won’t go into all the icky details, I’ll just leave it at that.) I’ve also been having a lot of headaches. I don’t really feel like I’m getting better, and I’m starting to lose my voice.
So I’m at that awkward deciding point, do I call the doctor and try to get an appointment for tomorrow morning or wait it out over the weekend? I’ve tried gargling with salt water, taking it easy, cough drops, popsicles, orange juice, I’m always on a multivitamin and I take an anti-histamine daily.
