Tried to go to the county clinic. Got there, parked far away (parking was full), no one would help me, no forms, etc. It was a nightmare. So I left. I called my regular doctor, hoping they wouldn't turn me away simply because I owe them money. I got an appointment right away, so literally drove from the clinic to my doctor's.
Showed him the pics of my hives, since I didn't have any at the moment.
The verdict? I have a virus...and yeah, that is one of those things that anitbiotics don't help. There is nothing I can take for my illness. And he thinks the hives are an allergic reaction to whatever the virus is. It could take 2 weeks for everything to work it's way out of my system, but there's nothing I can take. He gave me Allegra to take for 2 weeks, to try to prevent the hives.
Great....so I have been getting WORSE instead of better, but I just have to let this play out? What WAS the point of that doctor's visit that I didn't have money for? Sheesh.
