Hi all

I started with a sore throat yesterday and obviously has got worse now. Been taking beechams paracetamol and ibuprofen however I’ve also got diarrhoea and I’ve been awake just sitting in the bathroom because I’ve got the feeling coming that im going to throw up.

Im worried how I will throw up if my throat is swollen I'm a bit scared. Gp appointment is 3 weeks waiting.

Has anyone had this before

X thanks

So you’ve had a sore throat for a day and you now feel a bit sick? Please tell me this is a joke. If not rest, drink water and don’t bother doctors for a mild stomach bug

Im trying to figure out if it’s a bug or a throat infection. I’ve never experienced all three symptoms together. If it’s tonsillitis then I may need antibiotics. I don’t understand why a throat infection would cause vomiting and diarrhoea. But thank you for your helpful attitude.

@Alicewond why even bother commenting? Just nasty.

Op it's possible the things are linked or maybe the medication you've been taking for your sore throat has disagreed with you? 3 weeks waiting at GP is ridiculous. If it's tonsillitis you'll need antibiotics before then! Can you not try again or put your name down for cancellations?

Sorry you feel so rough, try and stay hydrated.

Thank you @ElleDriver I managed to get back to sleep and am keeping hydrated etc

I think it might be down to the tablets I’ve been taking

Thank you for your help

Someone I know had this before and it turned out to be uvulitis, which in turn must have irritated the gag reflex. Does your sore throat feel the same as the kind you have with a cold?

Yeah it feels the same but no runny nose. Im 99% sure it was the paracetamol that was making me sick. Keeps happening after I take them.
