    Perhaps the test simply went wrong? It happens sometimes, not often though every test has a certain percenage that it will go wrong. Perhaps you just found a zod - a bad one though still...

    Anyway, go see an other doctor if notting helps, or go see a specialist.

    btw, don't cut open you lymph and HOUSE ROCKS.

    Finish your meds. If the fever still persists, we'll send Borty over with the needles.

    Not all AB are broad spectrum, so they don't work for every bacterial infection, some work better than others. Borty, you know this. If you aren't getting better, then call your doctors office and tell them that you aren't seeing any signs of improvement. They may either ask you to come in again to do more tests, or prescribe a stronger AB.

    You happen to hok a loogie recently and mess your nose / ear / throat up, or don't you do that at all? Reason I ask is because my brother did that like two years ago and the result was those symptoms which were due to infection along with a pretty large puss-filled "ball" on his throat, under / behind his jaw. It lasted 2-3 months and he wound up in the hospital for about 5 days and was given morphine. They cut the mass open and drained all the puss out. Think one of his sides got messed up at some point, and when it got really bad he said he thought he was going to die. Anyway, your doctor might be right about the ear thing, just finish the antibiotics he prescribed you.

    Certainly, but I'll wager the one he received is indeed a broad spectrum AB.

    The funny thing is that on House sarcoidosis seems suggested as a possible cause more often than lupus is.

    Re: What's Wrong With Me?

    I'm not commenting on your illness. Honestely it doesn't sound severe and mainly beacuse you havent had your symtoms for a long period of time and they arent alarming unless you start to get high fever. Going by the information you provided it sounds like an infection, but it might be either a viral infection (eg wait it out) or a bacterial infection.

    However i would just like to make a point about antibiotics. Broad spectrum antibiotics are not always equal to better antibiotics. There are several reasons. You have the enormous antibiotic resistance problem and the ecological effects, a problem lessened by using small spectrum antibiotics for non too threatening infections where you can anticipate certain strains of bacteria. Another reason is that small spectrum antibiotics usually is better killers of the bacteria they work on than broad spectrum ab.

    Important is obviously not to use ab for viral infections. A problem for doctors however is that patients often are so intent to get treatment for their illness that they wont accept that ab wont work on viral infections and wont accept that the only way to heal a viral infection is to rest and let your immune system work its magic.

    When you anticipate an atypical infection, for example a pneumonia in chronic long time smokers with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease you use broad spectrum antibiotics. Or in case of recurrent infections, or if the first antibiotic treatment doesnt work, which are both signs of an atypical or resistant bacteria.
