Maybe the third time will be a charm?

So I have had this awful ear pain/throat thing going on since last Tuesday. I will spare you all the gritty details but it hasn't been pleasant. Finally, I went back to the walk-in clinic yesterday and the doctor proceeds to put the fear of the Lord in me that I probably have mono. Well, at least now we are getting somewhere. What are my treatment options? Go home and gargle with salt water. NICE! So glad all those years of schooling can allow you to give me such a concrete "treatment".

So, I call this morning to get the results of my tests and you guessed it - everything is "normal" so I should just get over it and move on. Oh, but if I want to, I can "come back in" to the clinic if I still feel something is wrong. Maybe they will give me some leeches this time!

I have sworn off the walk-in clinic and I have an appointment this afternoon to see an ear, nose and throat guy. Perhaps the additional schooling he has done will give him a little more insight, though I highly doubt it.

This always drives me crazy. What's worse is when the doctor says something like, "Hmmm...this is interesting. I'm not sure why this is happening." Nice. Augh!

Hope you get to feeling better soon!
