Taxi!

I'd get it checked out ..better to be safe then sorry.

drink some water

Could be lung infection. Might need Anti-biotics. Don't leave it if it is there constantly as can get worse quite quickly. Best get a second opinion

I'm a A+E nurse and if you still have chest pain, high temp (38c +) and the rash i would go to your nearest out of hours doctors or A+E asap if you can't get a GP appointment till tomorrow at 4pm. Sounds like you need antibotics asap and possible through IV (intervenus) access (cannula in a vein) as if your temp is higher than 38.5 it's a serious infection and needs treatment and blood cultures taken.

they want to see it because of the rash and head symptoms... if you feel really poorly call the emergency doc

I hope you feel better soon hon.. make sure you drink plenty fluids x x

:oops:, dont worry though:x

Take the advice from the A&E nurse. But dont panic. Once you are receiving treatment you will feel better. Important thing is don't ignore it

Man Flu.
