I have never felt so miserable. Fever staying put at 39 to 40. Taking anribiotics for 3 days not qorking.Now my head is hurting so bad. Cant eat and sleep. My ears so painful. Shall i go to doctor?Or is it just flu.

ABs may need longer to work. That is what doc will say. You need to take paracetamol to get temp down.

Also does sound like flu in which case abs no good but keep takng anyway.

Hope you get better soon. I had something similar at xmas.

Now husband wants to take me to out of hour gp. Dont want to go if not necessary but feel terrible. My sides hurt head ears throat

Hmmmm not a good idea to take old ABs. In that case go and see GP as suggested. You may have an ear infection and need specific medication.

Didn't realise you hadn't already been to the doctor.

Thank you nelly. Jusy dont like to go unnecessary.... Thanks for the advise

Sounds like flu. abs will not be doing much. all in our house have it and its miserable.

Me too op. it came on last night. I was crying.
Today I'm dosed up on codeine cos dh working and nobody to have my two yr old. I am currently in soft play just to get out if the house. It was lovely and quiet and I was having a nice cuppa then three parties arrived.
Um why are you taking anti biotics? You will end up with an infection.
