Flu and Tonsillitis?
An_254084 posted:
I went to the doctor today & he said I had Flu type A & B, but my tonsils are swollen and my throat is sore -- it hurts to cough and swallow, terribly. He said its really strange that I have swollen tonsils and I'm wheezing. Should I go back or call about it? It's been going on for 3 days, and I don't know what to do about it. It hasn't gone away, it's getting worse, and he only prescribed me TamaFlu. What should I do? I've been running a low grade fever of 99.4. I feel VERY nauseous, but that should be flu.
