Unexpected Medical Appointment

I went to see my primary care physician this afternoon. I haven’t been able to get rid of a lingering sore throat, excessive fatigue, and periods of breaking out into cold sweats. They did a test for strep throat, which was negative.

I’m still awaiting the results of a throat culture. My heart rate happened to be 128, so my doctor did an in-office EKG. Based upon the results, he wants me to have an echocardiogram as soon as possible.
