22 y/ o female. Last Monday I woke up with a fever and a bit of a sore throat. Dismissed it as a cold until last Friday i woke up and was barely able to breathe/swallow. Looked in my throat and couldn't even see past tonsils they were so swollen and pussy. I also had a red rash all over my body which my doctor informed me was scarlet fever. I was prescribed penicillin for ten days and over the weekend began to feel alot better. My throat feels next to normal again however my doctor told me this morning it looked extremely pussy. She suspects I have glandular and I will find out tomorrow morning for sure.
Reading up on the internet has made me extremely anxious. I've got a great job out of uni and have alot of upcoming work which could really make/ break my career. Until I know for sure I'm trying to remain positive but it sounds like from these stories glandular can wreak havoc on your body? Is there such thing as mild GF? Is it naive to think I can take a week off work and be better? I'm just really tired more than anything ATM. Most of the time I feel okay. I have a history of recurrent infections/ poor immune system
so am anxious my possible GF diagnosis could turn into a year saga. Just looking for a bit of reassurance at this point...
