    If you're still feeling unwell next week @kathlowdon it might be worth having a chat with your doctor about whether the meds are agreeing with you.

    I know of course they might take a while to work, but it's still worth flagging your concerns :)

    If you're especially worried about how unwell you're feeling, please remember you can call 111 or visit 111 online for help.

    Wishing you well, and hopefully in time you'll be feeling less ill. Please use the community if it helps take your mind off things, all our members are friendly and welcoming, and I'm sure they'd be happy to chat over in the coffee lounge.
