What is the treatment for sore throat and chest pain?
my friend has a core throat, congestion, c/o chest pain , achy muscles. says she has never felt this bad. i am concerned for her. i work in a hosp and am not aware of anything going around there. some members of her family have had strep throat. she has been on antibiotics
I'm sorry to hear that your friend is feeling under the weather. It sounds like she has an upper respiratory viral infection based on the symptoms you described. As of course you know, there is no medication that will cure it. She just needs time and rest. If her symptoms worsen (especially the chest pain) or if she develops shortness of breath, I would recommend obtaining a chest x-ray to rule out a secondary pneumonia which may need to be treated differently. All the best to her.
