Fever, throat pain, post nasal drip, fatigue, shivers, sweating, ringing in ears, ear pain. Should I go to doctor?

I have a constant low grade fever (99-101.4), intense throat pain, post nasal drip (there is blood in the mucus I cough up now), fatigue, trouble sleeping, random shivers and sweating, and loud ringing and pain in my ears. I went to see a nurse practitioner two days ago and she could not figure out what I had, but prescribed me medium strength antibiotics, a low strength steroid for the swelling, and various pain killers. I have been taking the medicine but don't seem to be improving. Should I go see a doctor again?

yes you should go and see some doctor
this could be a viral illness but if you have ear symptoms like ringing and ear pain then it may lead to decreased hearing if antibiotic is not given properly..
this can be the complication .
blood may be because you must be trying to clear your inflammed throat.
