Day six and am awake with severe pain in my throat. am feeling so sleepy but can't lie down coz it hurts so much. Codeine doesn't help any more I had to go back my gp for stronger meds I was given diclofenac suppositories anyone had one of these and how long do you have to wait to take the second one coz I took mine at 18:00 it's now 5 am ...... Never mind I couldn't bare the pain just took the second one I hope it stops hurting ...
