I had my throid checked once, about 10 years ago.
As for a diagnosis - Massive dehydration which caused a UTI, Anemeia and they highly suspect strep throat and possibly mono. This annoys me because I went to the local health center on friday and they told me I did not have strep throat and because i didn;t there was no need for meds or anti-inflamatory meds. Yet my throat got SO swollen, I have not been able to eat or drink anything since friday. The whole reason I went to the ER was because of dehydration.
I dont want to know what a several hr ER trip with 5 kinds of blood tests and a piss in a cup test, plus IV fluids and various meds administered through the IV are going to cost someone who has no insurance
And I found Baron Von Fishie Fins DEAD this morning. He seemed fine yesterday :( He was like, upside down in a C shape...
