Im scared senseless right now. I went to my doctor last wednesday with nausea and stomach cramps, they said it was probably a stomach virus. I went to the doctor again on saturday, they said it might be my appendix, and i went to the hospital. the hospital said my appendix is fine and sent me home. I went back to the doctor today because i had a red spot about 1 cm in the back of my throat that felt like a scratch last night. this morning i woke up and spit out some yellowy mucus. They tested for strep and said it was negative. they drew blood for a Mononucleosis test, and i am waiting on the results for that.
Would the doctor have known it was oral thrush if he saw it? I got an HIV test today, and i have to wait two days for the results.
please give me some positive feedback.
Also, would I have a raised or lowered white blood cell count as an indication to if i have HIV or not? the doctor said my white blood cells were normal.
Oral trash looks like white/yellow patches in the mouth together with dry mouth, and small ulcers if the patches are wiped off. It affects the mouth, tongue, gums and soft palate and the doctor can easily recognize it. Occasionally, the lips and cheeks are affected, too.
Do you find tiny red spots or bruise-like areas inside your mouth, especially on the roof of the mouth (palate)?
Do you have sore throat with white patches on the tonsils?
