Hi all, I was wondering if anyone can shed some insight into the following symptoms:

I've had a slightly itchy throat for about a month now; I kept forgetting about it, as it was so mild and easy to ignore. Just a fortnight ago, I was hit with a really bad sore throat... swollen tonsils (but no white patches or spots), with the left on in particular being quite uncomfortable. My left ear was also painful in some cases.

Over the following couple of weeks, the pain has subsided to become a mild nuisance (worse in the morning), and I only feel it when I swallow (it has moved to the right, and I feel it in my right). Sometimes, I have a dry coughing-fit. Additionally, I now get periodic headaches briefly in the morning, sometimes when I'm talking to people, but never if I'm just relaxing quietly or working at the computer.

The headache itself I can feel in the lower back of me head and sometimes radiating to the front of my head. I also feel it radiating to my deltoids and upper back.

Otherwise, I'm fine... no fever, no vision problems, just a slightly tired feeling.

Right now, I'm hoping it will just fix itself soon. My GP is booked out until the weekend, and I won't have any time for follow-ups as I leave overseas the following Monday for a month! Its a long-overdue vacation, so I'm really hoping not to ruin it by getting sick... lol. :D
