I went to the med centre yesterday as on Monday night I had been sick three times, my tonsils are swollen like balloons, I'm having hot and cold sweats stopping me from sleeping and a constant pounding headache. When I went yesterday I had a civilian doctor quickly look in my mouth and he said "yeah, tonsilitus" but he didn't examine me, it was a medic. The two medics there also told me it was tonsilitus and flu symptoms and that I should eat less aggrovating foods and drink plenty of water. I was bedded down for the day. Last night was just as bad so I went sick again, this time I saw a Lt Col. He started asking me irrelevant questions like "do I have any other injuries?" .. Injuries? I'm ******* ill I've not injured myself. He looked in my mouth and said there doesn't seem to be anything wrong here, maybe a sore throat. I told him I've been told I have tonsilitus and he sarcastically said "Errrr are they doctors?" .. I felt like saying yeah, one of them was actually. This topped it off for me: he asked me what kind of stuff I'd been drinking, I said water. He said that was a bad idea and that I should drink coke. Coke instead of water?! Maniac. So I'm now returning back to work with a chit for PT and a 'sore throat'. How many sore throats include being sick, tonsils with white spots, fatigue, pounding migranes and hot and cold sweats during the night? Are they like this on purpose? The usual gung ho if your leg hasn't fell off get on with it Army attitude?
