Subject:Scratch my throat and call me Susan.
Time:04:56 pm
Im the only person in the world that can get strep throat and not face any of the symptoms. My throat decided to grow a lovely little ulcer on the back of it right over the bundle of nerves that run up into my ear.

Every time my throat twangs in pain it rockets up my neck and stabs my ear much like pin prick from the inside out. Am I stuffy nose, congested, coughing, achey, or pukey? No. I'm nothing. Just a throat that hurts now and then and crippling pain in my ear.

So I get two things out of it. Antibiotics (which are rare for me) and vicodin (1st time user). I can see why vicodin is so much fun for you trendy little substance abusers. The trick is to take it with absolutely nothing in your stomach. I noticed that after popping two with dinner and having nothing happen. I am so cool now cause i can share a ''there was this one time i was taking vicodin'' story.

The darn bottle cost almost ten dollars. Not sure how much you can buy it for on/off campus but i bet i could have made my money back.

you got that weird ulcer thingie too??!?! i have had it like twice (once in 99 and once last year)
i was never told it was strep though.
the doctor that i went too told me that it was a viral infection (most likely) but gave me antibiotics because i had an ear infection with it
(my ear had an ulcer in it just like my throat!) and they always give you antibiotics if you have an ear infection be it bacterial or viral
so, if you have what i have, then it takes like 10 days for this thing to heal up and move on
its horrible
if you tire of vicodin (is that possible?!?!) you can do what i do
1) suck on a lot of peppermints (seems to help)
2) drink LOTS of ice water especially with food. it helps numb your throat especially when food rubs against your ulcery spot

btw, i had no symptoms of anything else besides the scratchy throat too
