Morning everyone. I started getting a sore throat on Saturday, this slowly got worse, I didn't go to work on Tuesday, I saw a nurse at my surgery and she said I had a viral throat infection. She said she couldn't give me anything for it because of the pregnancy, she just told me to keep taking paracetamol. Well it's Thursday today and it's worse than ever! I can hardly swallow my own spit. I can't sleep for longer than two hours because the paracetamol has worn off. I've just had a Calippo ice lolly, which seems to help the pain for about 5 minutes. I'm so fed up! I'm thinking of ringing the doctor when it opens to try and get another appointment but i'm not holding out much hope, it's really difficult to get an appointment at such short notice. Also is there any point? the nurse wouldn't give me anything on Tuesday. Do anyone have any miracle cures?
