What next???
Ok, so I'm going for week 3 now, first it was an extremely painfull throaght, so after posting a qeustion to you I went to my GP, who said it's tonsolitus.....

By the Friday, my whole body was aching, still had a high fever, stuffy head,runny nose and still a painfull throaght, went back to my GP, got an injection and new meds, he said it was acute bronchitus....

By sunday my fever was running at 39.3 and still no improvement, just felt worse, went back again and got new meds again, my GP said it was still bronchitus, but seeing that it is a viral infection, it's a bit tricky to treat...

It's now Monday and still I feel worse..... All the symptoms are still there, with the added one of dizzy spills....

So what do you think Cyber Doc, should I go for a second opinion or give the new meds a chance???

Hi Shadow
You must always give the antibiotics at least 48-72 hours chance to work. If your fever does not come down, get a second opinion. Sorry for the late answer - our website was up to nuggets for a while.
