I'm hoping someone can help me with a medical question.
I just moved out of state for a new job. New health insurance doens't kick in for a few weeks. I still have health insurance from old company but it's out of state - so I'm going to clinics and urgent care.
3 weeks ago I thought I had strep. My old GP called me in a scrip of antibiotics. After a week it didn't get better, so I went to a walk-in clinic. Blood test confirmed I had mono.
Last week I developed a bad eye infection. Went to urgent care and doc said I got a secondary staph infection in my eye. Gave me antibiotic and steroid eyedrops for swelling and infection.
So, I'm on week 3 of this mono thing. The worst is over. However, I still have some white spots on my throat and low-grade fever (99-100) at night. I can still function just get worn out really fast and tend to get headaches and low fever about 8-9pm.
So.... is this normal? As long as I'm not getting worse do I need to go back to the doctor? I'm not under any doctor's care (again, no local GP because no local health insurance) so I have to go in and pay a lot of money to see a doctor. I just want to know if still having white spots (not sore throat though - just scratchy) and low grade fever at nights and exhaustion. Are these normal?
PS: I hate this. It's a terrible way to start out life in your new city.Me BW Him XSAWH
