"very bad experience"

About: Maidstone District General Hospital

Anything else?

I am ill from tue(12/2/13) with Throat pain,fever,headache n body aches.so i took anadin, paracetamol at last neurofin..it didn't work.on sat(16/02/13) i went to nhs in emergency.They have checked and confirmed that i had tonsils infection and they gave me Phenoxymethylpencillin 10 mls 4 times for 10 days.once i started using it I felt very week and i had diarrhea(almost 10 times a day).So again i went on mon (18/02/13) in emergency ,another doctor confirmed its not bacterial its just viral infection.no need of antibiotics.so i have to stop them and have to use paracetamol .the doctors don't have clarity.Now i'am in a dilemma now whether its a viral r bacterial infection.Usually patients trust doctors and follow what ever they say.but here few doctors with half knowledge they are playing with patients. i'am one among them.I lost 5kgs in 2 days.I have to recover myself.still i'am suffering.I don't knew whether these reviews are considered or not.
