Question: I have been sick for 2weeks. It started with my throat that led me to the doctor. A few dats before that. I got a large fever blister on my upper lip. Then my sore throat. I did have a low grade fever, I had 3 nights with sweating during the night which woke me up with wet hair. I went to md next day. She asked me what was wrong and looked at my throat which she said looked really red. Then she asked me what kind of antibodic I thought would work for me I said no z pak it never helped me. We then decided on Keflex. Before that. I had massive cramping. Uncontrolled bad cramps. Sharp cramping. Before I began Kelli’s. After 6days on antibiotic I’m still not good. I cough up stuff especially after I eat eat or drink. After I eat something I get that cramping I need to sleep a lot. No more fever. What do my symptoms suggest.

Brief Answer:

You are going to get better.

Detailed Answer:


Your symptoms suggest an upper respiratory tract infection. It has 3-5 days with fever and then 2-3 weeks with cough.

So the fact that you are feeling better is a good sign. You will get better day by day.

Keep drinking plenty of fluids and eating healthy.

If worse or not better, I would recommend seeing a local doctor. That would mean that you may have a complication and you may need another antibiotic.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
