I don't want to scare you but I would go for a second opinion. I was diagnosed as having laringitus about 3 or 4 years ago and was refused antibiotics even thogh I was very used to throat infections and knew that this one was bad. I ended up going ot the surgery 2 days running askign them to take me seriously. On the third day I woke up unable to breathe as my throat was so swollen and had to call an ambulance (thank god I had a landline then as I couldn't even speak to tell them where I was, they could locate me from my number.) I ended up in hospital with a suspected quinsey, and had big syringes stuck in my throat . Throat infections can turn bad pretty quickly ime, and only you know if this needs to be seen to again. One quick tip is that Merocaine lozenges will numb your mouth making swallowing a bit more comfortable.
