Customer Question

I am sick. It started out with what seemed to be a herpes outbreak. Then a couple days later on Sunday i was throwing up and have diarrhea. The Monday i got a fever and swollen tonsils and headache. I have also started to get cramps in my calf. Do I need to go to the dr?

Yes, you do need to be checked out. It does sounds like a viral illness, but it might not be. You need a direct exam and basic lab tests. You might need Antibiotics. It does not have to be tonight, but sure in AM.
