4 days ago I went to ER with sore thoat

Patient

Q: 4 days ago I went to ER with sore thoat & ear. I had a white lump on my left tonsil & it was a little swollen. Was diagnosed with strep throat & told there was fluid behind ear. Was given a 5 day Zpac. Now 4days later, the white thing is gone but I am feeling much sicker. I also have a lot of pain in my neck, jaw, thraot, ear. It is painful to even move my tongue now or turn my head. Have stopped eating today as it is now very painful to open mouth very wide. Sick & scared.
