    History:
    Monday – lightly scratchy throat
    Tuesday – sore throat and went to doctor, doctor said tonsillitis and gave me 10 days of amoxicillin
    Tuesday night – horrible fever, 102 at its highest
    Wednesday – fever subsides, just sore throat with slight cough and a little congestion
    Thursday – still sore throat, no fever, really runny nose and coughing up yellow-ish green flem.

    Am I getting better or worse here?

    Called the doctor and they said it may take 3-4 days to see improvement. So I will need to call them tomorrow again if I still feel like crap.

    You're getting better. I get lung/throat infections a lot and you're describing it clearing up. The more yellow **** you cough up the more bacteria are dying.

    it's probably just a virus and can take a week or two to run it's course. keep taking in fluids (orange juice)

    Cranberry Juice. Orange juice actually isn't great when you're sick because it's so acidic. My doctor told me Cranberry juice is the best fluid to drink when sick.

    you're dying. But good news, we all are.

    You just got a bug. I have the same **** right now. It hurts every time I swallow, ****ing sucks. I got antibiotics a week ago and it's just starting to get better.

    green/yellow sputum just means you're winning the war with the infection.

    Your getting better, the fever usually goes away first and the sore throat/cough last. Just be sure to take all 10 days of your medicine, even if you feel fine after 7 days or whatever.

    :thumbup: Same here and I always have sinus, ear and throat infections.
    If you're coughing stuff up, that means you're de-congesting. Whatever you're coughing up should start to be clear instead of yellowish which indicates an infection. If it continues to be that color after 6 or 7 days of the antibiotic, you may need a stronger antibiotic.

    I really sounds like what I had. At the stage you are at, I was on my honeymoon... on a boat... in the pacific ocean. Imagine being sea sick and feeling like that. blah.

    Mine progressed, I got antibiotics, which took forever to help, and felt better for about 3 days, then hit me again. I'm just now starting to feel human again, but I still have my sore throat and hack up nasty stuff every morning. They did a culture on me, no strep but I do have tonsilitiis.

    DayQuil, vitamins, antibiotics, and sleep.

    -------------

    I know this is off topic, but what do you think of Heritage Village. We found a house in there we like. They guys across the street from your dad want way way way to much money for their house! Although nice, $400k is just too much for that house.

    I've had a sore throat for a month..

    but its my fault... it will dye down and feel better than I will take massssssive bong hits and I think that irritates it.

    :lol:

    In all honesty...I went home and hung out with the big group of "stoner" friends I had back then and we smoked wayyyyyy more than we should have. I got a REALLY bad lung infection that started the very next morning when I woke up. I let it go for a few days and got SO sick. I couldn't even breathe my lungs hurt so bad when I inhaled. Taught me a lesson :( :lol:
