- Felt tired and off for a week and a half

Acute phase (more than 48 hrs.):
- Nausea
- Crampy Abdominal Pain
- Vomiting
- Moderate Sore Throat
- Blotchy, Red Throat
- Swollen Tonsils
- Swollen, Tender Lymph Nodes
- Low Fever
- Fatigue
- Malaise

Should I go to the walk-in clinic?

I would definately go in to the clinic. you might have the flu, but it sounds more like the flu and something else. you shouldn't have to suffer. Feel better!

You should go to the doc for a sore throat. For that... Go right now.

Quick question? Where is the abdominal pain? Cause that sounds a LOT like how a friend felt when his appendix went south on him... he didn't do the whole 'sudden sick' thing they tell you always happens, he got slowly sicker and sicker. So yea, if the cramping is sharp and on the right side, you'd definitely better go.

And I'd go just for the sore throat.

*NOT a doctor, and it's incredibly hard to be accurate over the net. Please do not think I know anything about what I'm talking about... just saying what I've seen one dude do.

Sooner than later or perhaps an emergency department if walk-in involves delay. If you have a group A Strep infection you do not want systemic complications. Rapid Strep tests are done STAT in hospitals.
