Update: Went to the doctor today, not my usual doctor as he was on call today they said, some older lady I've never met before. She has advised me to take 8 steroids for 5 days, and I already had an 'emergency' pack at home so did not need to get any. At first she said oh you may need an antibiotic but changed her mind and said 'we are trying to use less antibiotics at the moment' which I found a bit strange but just ignored. Gave me a sick note to say I can't return to work till Thursday as can barely speak and work in a contact centre! Thank you for all your messages lately x
