Headache, Sore Throat, Coughing, OH MY!

I was sick a couple of weeks ago, but have been plagued by the same malaise for another week, so I am thinking it is a really bad case of allergies. It is either allergies or strep throat which when I went online to research it found out that even if I went on antibiotics, it only cuts the time of suffering down by 1.5 days, so what's the point? My head has been so full of pounding pressure that when I cough, it feels like it is going to explode. The coughing doesn't feel so hot on the sore throat either. I had my tonsils out when I was 17, and I haven't had a sore throat this bad since. It is so swollen that it feels like it might close shut. It has been pretty depressing to feel sick for so long. I don't think Jeromy enjoyed my coughing ALL NIGHT LONG either. I told him yesterday that if I was going to feel like this every year from allergies, we were going to have to move. His reply was, "To Hawaii!" It is Jeromy's dream to move there. I lived there for 3 years and don't know that I would want to live there full time, but Jeromy and I spent 3 weeks there for our honeymoon, and he loved it. Needless to say, my allergies were great there. Next year in Hawaii? Who knows!
