Have had a really sore throat all day since getting up and a runny nose, plus a splitting headache (I never get headaches). Thinking it was the start of a cold, I've taken Lemsip which always helps me, but not this time. I do feel really ill and not quite sure what to do.

Do you have a temperature?
There are some right stinking colds doing the rounds at present. The one I had a few weeks back actually delayed my return to work and kept me off my feet for several days.

Stay hydrated and get plenty of rest is the best advice I can give. I hope you feel much better soon.

Thank you LCG, I hope it is just a bad cold. I haven't felt this bad with a cold before.

Are you coughing, have you lost your sense of taste and/or smell?
Take your temperature and drink plenty of fluids. Carry on with the lemsip as per instructions. Are you coughing?
Monitor your symptoms as the day progresses, sounds like a nasty cold - any high fever,constant harsh cough and/or loss of taste or smell then order a home test.

That's assuming you have been out and about in mixed company.
Ring 111 Margie. x. Err it is 111 isn't it?
Have you got any paracetamol?
Its a viral infection, do all above in addition to Ibuprofen 400mgms every 6 hours.
