Ok so I'm 13 female from the uk and I have been suffering from a sore throt for the past 3days and to make it worse, I have had a headache for the past 2 days. However, whenever I move my eyes left to right or up and down or even rub them, they hurt! I haven't had any accidents recently and I have only had one paracetamol, cough medicine and a pack of cough sweets. Please help. Thank in advance!
Hi, the headache and problems with your eyes sound like migrane symptoms. It could be a coincidence that you have the sore throat at the same time. Make an appointment with your doctor to discuss the possibility of migranes. In the meantime, paracetamol will help as well as ibuprofen (as long as you are not sensitive to it). Or Daynurse/Nightnurse, these will help treat all of your symptoms, but don't take at the same time as paracetamol as they already contain it.
I hate to disagree with the other posters, but I would tend to believe you have a sinus infection. Your throat is likely sore from sinus drainage. When my sinus cavities are full, I will develop a headache and the painful condition with my eyes, exactly like you've described. You should make a trip to your Dr to be prescribed an antibiotic. If you could get a decongestant from your local pharmacy or drugstore, that would probably help you immensely. I'm not sure of your laws in the UK, but here in the US you have to be 18 to buy a decongestant, so you may have to have an adult do that for you. I hope this helps and that you feel much better soon. :)
