I've felt fine all day, all of a sudden my neck at the left hand side has started hurting (got worse over last 1/2 hour), I feel clammy and my throat feels like sandpaper and I have a headache (which has been coming and going all day)

I am tired as I've not been sleeping too well, so don't know if this has had any effect on me.

Are your glands up? Can you feel them under your jawbone? Sounds like you have a headcold coming on, being rundown makes them come on very suddenly for me.
Paracetemol and take to your bed/sofa if you can.

My glands don't feel up, I don't know whether it is because i'm not sleeping.

Everywhere I have gone today my legs have felt like lead weights. I'm going to bed soon.

Oh god, this happened to me last week and I was convinced it wast swine flu blush

It was actually tonsilitis - needed antibiotics but I also had major flu symptoms, chills, aches, sweats etc.

Had 3 full days off work which is very unlike me.

Hope you feel better soon but look at your throat in the morning and if you can see any white stuff on the back of it near your tonsils, get thee to the Dr's asap.

Thanks, sycamoretreeisville, It can't be tonsilitis as I had them taken out when I was 4.

Loads of people round here with similar symptoms, Tonsilitus needing antibiotics - kids seem to get it v mildly adults are all in bed with antibiotics...

Agree totally with sycamore

Lovemyshoes - you can still get it even though your tonsils are out....My DH has had his out but still got it a couple of years ago - just not as bad as he used to...

tree - there are antibiotics that you can take whilst breastfeeding, the amounts in the milk are pretty small and if you get too sick you are not going to be much use to your bubs. Breast feeding network used to have a list of drugs during breastfeeding on their website hope everyone is feeling better soon and my scratchy throat and sore head aren't this...
