    Keep waking up with an awwwwful sore throat, when I swallow it's so bad and i can hardly speak

    And then it wears off after about an hour or two (hurts like hell right now atm though)... this has happened every day this week!

    Also I'm majorly hot/cold and keep feeling a bit ill and was sneezing so much last week that I actually got a nose bleed

    Any suggestions appreciated :/

    updated: Now have a mega ear ache and most of the pain is on right hand side of face

    Head down to a pharmacy, it might be flu.

    i had tonsillitis a few weeks ago so i feel your pain
    the orange strepsils are really good, they've got vitimin C in as well which helps
    salt gargle, rest and lemsip are also lifesavers

    Get some soluble aspirin and gargle with it. Tastes horrible but might bhelp.

    Most other things will help to lubricate your throat and won't do any harm, but the aspirin should reduce the inflammation.

    Get well soon

    Obviously if you can't take aspirin for whatever reason this advice is rubbish!

    I had this a few weeks ago, but it turned out that i had a really bad ear infection, better tonsillitis i suppose.

    Can you feel an itchy sensation about an inch inside your ears (sounds like an odd question, i know)?

    whenever I get these... whrere my muscles are all achy as well I just take like 2 cold and flu tablets (whatevers most expensive- i know stupid) and bang loads of vix/olbas oil on and sweat most of it out whilst sleeping or generally just sweat most of it out...dont worry its probably just the cold... althought the nose bleed thing is kind of concerning you may need to go to pharmacy/doctor.

    I'd see your doctor/pharmacist about the pain. For the throat honey and hot water should help sooth it, it worked for me the other week but I didn't bother adding lemon like is usually suggested since I didn't see citric acid helping my throat (and I didn't have any in), I added whisky instead since that is also good for a sore throat (it certainly takes your mind off the pain :p: ) and it turned it a lovely shade of black.

    The doctor said i had a bad throat infection!
    I have to take 8 penicillin a day

    apparently my ears hurt because my glands had swelled to a massive amount up to my ears
    and the sniffling and the nose bleed were normal
