Re: [IP] tonsilitis, mono, and strep, oh my



Well, in a strange sort of way your post makes me feel better... I am not
really tired (I'm actually having trouble sleeping) or exhausted, have no
pain in my side as others have said... my throat is more painful than it has
ever been, and I was thinking it can't be strep because it hurts so much.
Thanks!
