Please call your GP as I think you need proper medical advice. Hope you can get an appointment soon. Good luck.

Not being able to swallow and get solids down needs your doctor's attention so ask for an appointment tomorrow.

Have you not got a walk in centre near you? you need to keep trying if you don't get anywhere you'll need to go to A & E as you can't keep on like this hun Love & Hugs Xx

Complete a 111 form online to obtain advice if impossible to access GP (know the feeling). If actually you think you would need to see an ear nose and throat specialist attend A+E.

Hi Nikki70, sorry to hear you're having such problems at the moment.

We'd highly recommend you speak to your GP or healthcare professional about how you've been feeling, and what they'd recommend based on your own medical history and background.

You can also call 111 on your phone for immediate advise if you're struggling to get through to your healthcare professional.

Let us know how you get on!

I rang 111 and they have said go to the hospital I didn’t really want to do that as I have no immune system but it’s got to that point now that I need to do will let you know thank you guys
