Okay, first, mea culpa for this, but I'm feeling wretched.I've got a sore, very swollen throat, pain 6/10 no meds, 4/10 with Vicodin. My glands are visible through the skin of my neck. No fever, no white patches. I'm spitting out my saliva because it hurts too much to swallow it, and I'm having a touch of difficulty breathing. Headache and lightheaded. My dr won't see me till tomorrow. Two home health books are telling me to go to the ER, but seeing as I can sit here and write this, that seems excessive. There is a fastrack at my local ER though. Thoughts?
