    If you are in serious pain and it's the kind of thing that needs to be treated immediately then head to the A&E.

    I disagree (most respectfully, mind) with the suggestion to head to the ED with a strain. If you're already sure that it is a strain and nothing more serious like a dislocation or fracture, then A&E isn't going to be able to do anything more for you than you can easily do at home.

    PRICE - plus anti-inflammatory painkillers (if you can take them) will see you right. Plus time! Obviously if it's been a while and it seems to not be improving at all, or getting worse, or you get some other symptoms then maybe make a routine appointment to see your GP.

    You should be able to, but you may have to pay. What do you want one for? My surgery charges £25 for a note. Unless it's something that's actually part of their job as an NHS GP, for the NHS, then you gotta pay. I've seen it as low as £15, though my old doctor didn't charge if he felt sorry for you

    I have a project due in 4 weeks. I was thinking of using this as mitigating circumstances, would it get accepted? I haven't been able to sleep properly the past few days because of this.

    I'm really not sure. I'm not in uni yet so haven't been through that process. That being said, I don't think my college would accept it. Has a doctor actually diagnosed you with a strained trapezius? If not, the doctor writing the note would have to see for his or herself first as well
