Holy #($% has anyone else caught this "bug" going around?

Started thursday night as a nagging sore throat, went to bed and woke up vomiting at 3:30-5:30 am.

Feel weak, sometimes dizzy, my right ear hurts and I can feel pressure / clogging in it. My nose is stuffed sometimes, throat hurts, have a headache, and Im coughing so hard I almost puke. Oh and I havent had a voice for 2 days. today I noticed some cute little white spots on my tonsils.

Almost everyone I know has or had something similar to this very recently. Is this going around where you live, also?

Sounds like strep! The white spots on your tonsils are pretty indicative of strep. It's going around where I live, I'm just glad that my daughter hasn't picked it up since it was going around her daycare... *knock-on-wood*

Yeah, when I was 36 weeks preggo with my fourth, I had the same white spots on my tonsils, and it was NOT strep. I was hoping it was so I could get some quick relief via antibiotics, but I had to suffer through it for two weeks.

I hope you feel better.

OMFG, I'm sorry, Kelly!! That's the kind of bug I tend to get about three times a year. And it usually takes me weeks to be my old self again.

I definately had this for about two weeks, it was a bitch-and-a-half.

I was sent home from work because I looked so ghastly, which doesn't happen where I work, LOL. They bitch and complain if someone calls in sick most of the time.

Long, hot showers + some form of Vick's worked well for me.
