I was diagnosed last week. But the go took no bloods despite me saying I’d been in contact with Chicken Pox and I worked in a school. I had been run down with other Upper respiratory infections from Feb and cracked ribs coughing. I’m concerned I was just given prednisolone and not Antivirals. The doctor said they don’t prescribe them. I’ve developed a worse neck pain and swelling over the week under and around ear and sensitive hearing that side. I can’t sleep at all. The doctor basically left it up to me if I went to work or not. I took this week off and I’m asking for more time as I’m in pain and I want to make sure I have the best chance of recovery. If I go to work, I will be straight into a highly stressed situation as I’m in front of pupils on my own and doing two peoples jobs over two sites since cuts. This situation has invariably contributed. I can’t close one eye and have complete paralysis one side. I can’t speak properly. Any advice???
