Sore throat?

Just got back from urgent care and was told I have a virus and to ride it out. I have a very sore throat, a stiff neck, chills, and aches and pains. My pulse was 113 and my oxygen was 90. BP 118/90. Negative strep test.

I feel like I was rushed outta there--I waited for 2 hours and got 5 minutes of treatment. Any sympathizers out there?

  • Vitals are normal. Honeys works well. try gargling warm water or vinegar mixed with salt. either works fine. Take some lozenges or some thing afterwards. Pain meds and anti biotics are all I can advise

    Take some ibuprofen and gargle with salt water.
