I have a sore throat, severely swollen lymphnodes in my neck, a big lump on one side of my neck which one of the doctors said is a swollen up lymphnode, migraines/headaches, ringing in my ears, and my tonsils are very swollen as well...and they have white pus or bacteria or something coating them. I cannot eat as it is very painful and am very tired all the time.
I have been to 3 doctors, they have taken a throat swab and blood tests showed strep for one doctor, the other interpreted it as mono, and the third told me to take antibiotic Amoxicillan, but as it is pennicillan based and I am allergic to pennicillan, I will get a big rash from it.
I don't know what to do, It has been already a week of this.
If someone has had the same thing or might know somethin, please please post as I need to treat this properly and act quickly:(....
