You could be: Women with pcos usually have irregular periods. This is because the time it takes to select an egg for ovulation is unpredictable. Your symptoms of egg white mucus may indicate that you are ovulating now. But if you ovulated 5 days ago and the egg is fertilized, you wouldn't have a positive test yet.

Possibly: Obtain a home pregnancy test. They turn positive at about the time you'd be ready to start your next expected period. If negative, repeat in 1 week and call your doctor.

Ulnar neuropathy: You have likely heard of carpal tunnel syndrome. This is a compression and irritation of the median nerve in the wrist. Ulnar tunnel syndrome, which it sounds like you may have, is a compression of the ulnar nerve in elbow. This nerve supplies the ring finger and pinky fingers. If it is compressed and irritated it can produce tingling and pain in those fingers. It is more common in pregnancy.

Okay: Lemon and honey, cayenne pepper laced broths, peppermint extract in warm liquids, a little burbon with honey, perhaps cold liquids, ice creams, sorbets etc, hot lemonade (with a bit of bourbon), and I am sure there are a few herbals that can be used.

Herpangina?: A specific virus causes herpangina, a very painful sore throat with blisters on the soft palate. Viscous Lidocaine can be prescribed. If it is a strep throat, antibiotics are indicated.
Dr. Ed Friedlander

Sounds like herpangina. I had it a couple of years ago myself; it runs its course but is miserable, your mouth is likely to burn, and Dr. Byrnes' suggestion of viscous lidocaine is still the best.

Wrong dose: The way you are taking the zithromax is not the dosing for chlamydia - for that you need to take 4 250mg tablets at once. That's it. Call your doctor and check out why they prescribed it the way you are taking it.
