Have sore throat, fever and weakness. Taking antibiotics. No effect. Solution?

I went to my doctor with a really bad sore throat , fever and tired/weakness that has been going on for a week. He did not run any tests simply looked at my ears and throat and gave me antibiotics . I have been taking them for a few days now and can still barely eat from the pain in my throat. Should he have done more? I m afraid I have Mono and think he should have checked.

thanks for your query
History seems that you have sever tonsilopharyngitis
you were on treatment but no relief.
better to have throat swab for culture and sensitivity and treat accordingly.
Meanwhile take any broad spectrum antibiotics Like amoxiclav or Azithromycine 500 once daily with antiinflammatory drugs like tab chymoral plus and antihistaminics like tab levocet or fexofenadin,
Avoid cold and junk foods
Salt water or any antiseptic gargle 4-5 times a day is better.
Thanks a lot
