Could be: The family transfer rate runs ~1/4 at this time of the yr. Less likely >24hr of meds but you both may have been exposed to the same source or he could pass it to you before rx. A quick strep test with a culture if that is negative ( few false neg tests occur) will let u know.Great handwashing & lack of oral contact keeps transfer rate down, a difficult thing in families. ...Read more

20 year old female, very tired (may be due to endep) sore throat, headache, weird cloudy feeling in head. anxiety it's meningitis making me feel worse?

Probably not: Meningitis usually causes fever, extremely severe headache (the kind that gets you to the emergency room), and vomiting. Your description doesn't sound like meningitis. Sounds more like a typical virus, compounded by anxiety. If not not improving after 3-5 days, or if worried, see a doctor for an exam. ...Read more

Viral illness: This could be one of a number of viral illnesses. The number one that comes to mind at your child's age is mono. A blood test could be done to rule this in or out. Many of these viruses that cause a similar constellation of symptoms are self-limiting - this means your body will clear them up on its own, and child should get plenty of rest, fluids and good diet. Get her further checked out. ...Read more

Influenza: Symptoms of influenza can vary from case to case and other viruses produce a similar clinical picture. Must isolate virus or do serologic testing to prove presence of influenza. Your daughter should be seen by a pediatrician to be sure the painful swelling on her palate is nothing serious. Headache, fever and sore throat may be strep and she can be examined for this and treated if necessary. ...Read more

Not necessarily: although need to be thought of, however there's fever and infection (the sore throat) and may be extensive bacteremia, which can spike the neutrophil count. How is she doing otherwise? the whole clinical picture is important, the first step is to exclude other causes such as drugs, (eg steroids?), repeat the test. look carefully at other cell lines, good history and physical exam are important ...Read more

See his doctor.: It sounds like he needs to be examined by his doctor. Even though he doesn't have fever, and this may be a viral illness, he should be seen to rule out strep or other treatable illness. Meanwhile you can give him ibuprofen or acetaminophen for the pain, if he has no medical contraindication to doing so. Also, make sure he is drinking fluids. ...Read more
