Progressive sore throat and ear ache, what to do next?
Patient :I have had a sore throat for 7 days and my glands feel swollen. I have felt fine during that time except for the throat. (I do not have my tonsils). Today both my ears ache and feel pressure. But I don't feel congested like I have in the past with sinus issues. I have tried some OTC meds to help symptoms but nothing really does help. Should I see a doctor right away this week or or wait a few more days?
