So i've been sick for awhile now, A month ago I had a bad flu, got rid of that a week later i got a bad cold got rid of that then I got a bad sore throat, Which i've had for about 2 weeks now, And its only getting worst. I have a appointment with the doctor but Its in 2 weeks, And it hurts so bad I can't wait. My aunt looked at my throat and said it is swollen, and looks like its closing up but not to be too worried cuz its not THAT bad yet. Or something, But that was a couple days ago, and now it hurts. It hurts when i swollow, eat, drink, sometiems when i move my neck the wrong way, when i talk sometimes, when i sneeze, and when I yawn. Should I go to the ER? to get it looked at??

  • My knowledge is basic in this, just a mum who's daughter had similar problems. It could be tonsillitis, u really do need to be seen by doctor now not wait 2wks. I dont know where u are but can u not get an emergency appointment with ur family doctor ? If not do what ever u have to do today, it sounds like u need antibiotics now, Don't wait ! This can make u really ill ! If its not that, its still something u need to deal with sooner rather than later ! Let us know how u get on. Hope u feel better soon :)
