Need Medical Advice

First off, yes, I went to the doctor and am wondering if I should go back without looking like an idiot… I’ll try and make this short and to the point.

Exactly two weeks ago, I started to get a sore throat. The following day, I had chills, body aches, fever, sore throat, etc. In about 36 hours, I was feeling better (no antibiotics) and my throat was sore, but hardly noticeable.

Fastforward to this past Tuesday night. My throat was getting sore and then when I went outside after the gym (it was pretty cold), it seemed like my throat got worse and my ear started hurting. I went to the doctor and he gave me Amoxocillin (this was on a Wednesday). It is Saturday now (almost 72 hours later) and I’m not getting any better.

Should I go back and get a stronger antibiotic? Anything I should ask for? I was told I should be getting better within 48 hours but I can barely swallow and it sucks to eat food. Plus, an ear ache doesn’t make things any better.

Any help would be appreciated :slight_smile:
