Pink Eye & Fever/Chills

19:48 Apr 16 2018 Coronado Beach, San Diego

I went swimming for back to back for 2 days and on the 2nd day, I experienced pink eye so I got some eye drops, the next morning, I had fever and chills and it came and went until the 3rd day, when it stayed and I went to urgent care, where they took blood samples and gave me antibiotics. We are currently waiting for the results but my fever/chills are still in full force. It’s been a week already.
