Medication for sore throat

Hi, i suffered short breath on the 1st of June in my sleep and i had to wake up gasp air, then a month later changed to fever with tonsils like symptoms and i went to the Doctor whereby i was diagnosed with Tonsils and blocked nose fever, the Doctor prescribed antibiotics, Gargle medicine and blocked nose reliever but i was not really healed. I been to two doctors and both diagnosed me with the same thing things and prescribed similar medication but i still suffer from this tied, hard to swallow, constant burping, neck pains and mild headaches.

Hi Edgar

Have you been tested for the Epstein Barr virus? This can also cause the symptoms that you have been experiencing, especially for so long. Good luck and I hope that you feel better soon.
