That is what the doctor said: Strep throat and severe allergy problem.
The nurse gave me an antibiotic injection called something like rociferin (sp?) and a prednisone/cortisone injection. Both hips hurt now. Then, I got a prescription for Cefdinir (some antibiotic) and 3 Prednisone tablets. Plus, I am to take Guaifenisin, pseudoephedrine, aspirin, and a antihistamine. When I do that, I am going to bed. Maybe these spellings are wrong.
Snowbrush, I meant to write and say that a fever can occur with allergies AND accompanying inflammation and infection. When I have hives, I run a fever. At the first contact with anything I am allergic to, my temperature rises.
My life is defined by allergies. I would have been a geologist if not for allergies. What a rock was, how old, and why were burning questions when I was thirteen-years-old. I thought about being an anthropologist, not only digging up bones, but studying the bone, but again, dirt and dust thoughts stopped me. I was very young. Since I loved literature, words, and grammar, being an English major suited me just fine. But, books make their own dust. Old books are practically lethal to me. Since socio-linguistics very much interests me, I could have been happy studying Anthropology of Linguistics. Now that I am older, I see more opportunities I could have had.
I am going to bed for a while.
When I talk to exbf, I will tell him not to come tomorrow. I need him but don't want him to become ill with strep throat. sigh....I need him. Tomorrow is the only day he can come until next week.
Did allergies or some other real health problem help set the course of your life?
