Hehe thanks for the support everyone! I'm actually feeling quite a bit better today, I can eat now and I dont feel so lethargic, so I'm gonna go in to work today

Doctors in my area are such a pain; maybe TMI but when I came back from Africa I had a really bad stomach; awful cramps and couldn't be more than 10 feet from the bathroom for a MONTH! After a week of this I went into the doctors and they said they'd send off some tests, so I gave the samples and waited a few days and they said 'Oh, tests have come back nothing's wrong' so I said 'well...there's quite clearly something wrong!' but they wernt interested Offered to refer me to a dietitian!! Getting there is such a pain I be told 'See how it is in a couple of weeks'.

I think the culture here towards drugs/antibiotics is very different to in the USA than over here; we're always told about the negatives and not to over use them ect ect

Oh you're co-workers are going to love you. NOT!

Glad to hear you are feeling a bit better but be careful you don't overdo it and have a relapse because of.

The fact that you had been in Africa, had come back with a stomach bug should have been enough for any doctor worth their salt to send you to the hospital.
My hubby and I went to Egypt and managed to catch 'Shigella'. Hubby in particular was very, very ill with it. He ended up in hospital for over a month and I had to stay in quarentine for nigh on 2 weeks.

My poor mum had a really crappy doctor at one time, he was forever telling her to pull herself together and stop being such a baby. It got that she wouldnt go to him.
One day she was really unwell so I took her down to see the doctor and went in with her. Boy did that doctor get what was coming, he spoke to my mum as if she was a spoilt kid who was trying to skive off school instead of an adult with a genuine problem.

Change doctors if you aren't happy with yours.

Almost everything everyone else said!! White spots and swollen neck and all that indicates infection - swollen neck is usually because the lymph nodes are enlarged, trying to fight off the infection - could be tonsils, but it's a lot less likely than something like strep throat, mononucleosis (it's not just from kissing - I know - I got it at age 42 from being worn down working night shift at the hospital - I am NOT a night person, and my body rebelled!)... and tooth issues can cause systemic problems which can spread throughout the body! Being put off by a doctor is not acceptable - be sure to have a written list of all symptoms, duration, whether you had fever (significant info!)... yes, antibiotics are over-used in US, but under-use can cause someone needless suffering, and can prolong an illness and cause it to be passed along. And REALLY??? - someone returns from Africa, has symptoms, and is NOT thoroughly evaluated - that's irresponsible medicine! Feel better soon! Drink LOTS of fluids.
