I found out last night that I have strep throat. I have never had this before until now. It hurts to breathe, and I have to take quick short breaths so it won't hurt. My lungs hurt whenever I cough or sneeze (sneezing really hurts my lungs). It is 12:53 in the morning, and I should be asleep right now, but the medication the doctor put me on for my strep throat is keeping my up instead of putting me to bed like it should. This is the first time the medication has done this to me.
