Sore throat, headache and stiff neck. Difficulty in swallowing. What to do?
Hello, since Friday I've had a sore throat that is particularly painful to swallow, to drink and to eat. I find it hard to look down or move my head because of the pain in my throat and I keep having painful headaches and a stiff neck. I don't know whether to go to a doctor to get antibiotics or not to bother them, my dad thinks I have a sore throat but it's a lot worse than he thinks?
hi.. thanks for using HCM.. you have pharyngitis, and need to take antibiotics.. see your physician for the prescription.. need to take antibiotics, analgesics.. salt water gargling,.. multivitamins helps.. all the very best..
