Sore throat and ears for 3 weeks
I had the flu 3 weeks ago with fever and body aches and sore throat etc. I feel much better but the sore throat and ear ache stayed. i now also have muscle pain in my neck and shoulders. I took a cataflam and it took the sore throat and everything away for 2-3 days, but now it doesnt help anymore, even if i take 1 cataflam everyday. I do still have bit of a stuffy nose. I dont have tonsils so thats one thing we can rule out :)
