Hi I need advice. I am worried I could possibly have West Nile Virus . I have a sore throat , I m more tired than usual although I am getting adequate amounts of sleep. Also, my body aches I am really upset because I can t exercise. I have a fever of about 100-101 degrees Fahrenheit . I do have many mosquito bites and I live in a partially wooded/swampy area. My swollen glands are enormous and it is hard to swallow. I went to a clinic today and all they said was that my strep throat test was negative. Please help me.

I am 5 10 , 195 lbs, 24 years old male.... So sunday night I was getting a scratchy throat, but I was not worried, woke up next morning and had a sore throat, went to work it was manageable, asked fellow employees why my throat was only sore on one side. Monday night I started to get cold chills and a fever..Went to bed and woke up next morning with an even worse sore throat on my right side only. I was tired and had body aches, so I thought it was the flu or something, took some pain killers and went to work, Tuesday evening at work I was getting even more cold chills the night before , so I went home early and took a hot bath to warm me up, some tylenol and tried to sleep. Wednesday morning, same routine, right side of throat hurts even worse, where I can barely swallow liquids with out my throat hurting. So I took some thera-flu the prescribed dosage and continue to take it but still no results, but I happened to look in the mirror with a flashlight right next to my right tonsil it looks as if it got infected and there was white stuff stuck in there. I tried to remove it with a q-tip but was unsuccessful, not only did it hurt but it felt as if it was stuck in. Thursday I went to a doctor and she said I have some sort of pharyngitis, pre scribed me some amoxicillin and asked if I have post nasal drip, not that I know of.... But I have been following the directions and still now it is friday woke up pain in my throat on my right side only and I havent any real food since sunday... Am I not giving the amoxicillin enough time, if not if my throat continues to be in pain what s next?

Hi! I am a 30 y.o. gay male, no medical history. Over the last 2 years, I have been having pretty bad sore throat episodes, throat infections, tonsilitis etc. I also had a lymph node that wouldnt go away... I have been fine for months and now again I have a bad sore throat with fever etc. But now I know I think I know the reason but I am too shy to talk to a doctor about it. I enjoy giving deep oral sex (deepthroating), and I realized that everytime I had a sore throat (that lasted for days), I had had that kind of oral sex a few days before... Can you confirm please? And what do I need to do? I am a little worried... Thanks.
