I recently asked a clinical question about myself--strep throat, asking for advice. Clearly, I forgot about the policy against such questions. Anyway, I just wanted to apologize--and I erased the topic completely. Thanks Roentgen and Weil-Felix for your replys. As a 4th year medical student, much of the information you provided confirmed what I already knew. That said, I needed someone to be objective. This physician will not be treating thyself. Anyway, thanks again.
