I was just looking at the back of my throat (it hurts like mad) and I am thinking that I may have strep. It would explain everything that is going on with me right now (the reason I am in the hospital at least. I have an elevated white count (they said "17" but I don't know what units that is in), non stop diarrhea, nausea, almost vomiting, blacking out, incontinence (both ways - well, I don't know if strep would explain that), severe jaw pain and bad migraines - on the left side, which is not the same side they normally happen).
I am awake right now because they needed to take vitals (and I hurt), but I will probably be going back to sleep in about 10 minutes. They gave me more pain meds and this one is good with knocking me out.
Oh, I also have this thing (nodule is what is coming to my mind, but I don't know if that is the right word). It looks like mucus, but it won't go away and has been there for 24 hours. I asked the nurse about it and she said that she saw it, so I am asking her to explain it to the dr for me. I told the ER doc and he didn't see it, but I don't think I explained it well.
