Hello, so thursday lst week had a dr's app and told him my symptons (all on one side, gland near my ear is grape sized and tender, hearing loss, severe headaches at the back of my head and near the one side, tired, congested nose, one side of my throat/tonsil area is massive and I am having issues swallowing because of it). Dr thought it was a peritonsillar abscess so referred me to ENT clinic at a & e. ENT specialist looked at my mouth, checked if it was an absess using a needle but discovered it wasn't and gave me two sets of antibiotics (augmentin and metronidazole) and I thought this would fix it.
It is now tuesday, I have all the same symptoms PLUS severe sharp ear pain, further increased hearing loss, gland is the same size, and headaches are worse. Don't know what to do because I can't focus in lessons and really affecting me. Dr said if any further problems or it hadn't changed, go back to a&e ENT and they will help. Should I go to a&e? And any ideas on what this could be?? Really bothering me and I really hope someone replies as this took me ages to type out
I haven't finished the antibiotics yet (but I intend to obviously) but it hasn't worked so far and unsure how long I can stand being like this.
