Should I be worried?
So, I've been sick for the last 2 days. The first day, my sore throat started on one side of my throat, and spread to the other. It felt similar to strep throat, it felt kind of swollen, and it burned. I looked at my throat, and it was red with a lot of red bumps. The next day, my throat felt a lot better, and the cold seemed to have moved to my nose and eyes. My throat was much less red. I felt really fatigued, my nose burned and was runny, and my eyes watered. Today, I've been having a "stuffy" feeling in my ears, a headache, stuffy nose and cough. I looked at my throat, and it still has some red bumps, as well as some red vein like lines, but what worries me is that half of my throat is swollen!! Half of my throat (the part you can see when you open your mouth, behind the uvula) is visible swollen! It's not red or anything. Sorry this is so long, and I understand that I should go to a doctor, but has anyone had similar symptoms?
