Question plse help i am freaking out

I am sorry if this is the wrong board but i feel this is relevant, and maybe someone out there can help me.

Hi, i am 23 yrs old and have severe anxiety/panick attacks i am currently taking 30mg of remeron have been on it for 6mnths.. and at this moment in time i am freaking out, the thing is, i have had tonsilitis since last mnth i was given penicillin didnt work had another course of penicillin didnt work, (doc on call) went to my doctor last monday and was given amoxillin well within a few day my throat pain went away, i still took my amoxillin till yesterday (monday 7 day course) last week i noticed a tiny lump (looks like a wart but it isnt) on my tonsil my right one, with a hole just above it, anyways that is what is hurting me now, i went bk to my doctor this morning and he had a look and said ''oh it still bad, ok i am gonna write to the ent specialist, in the meantime i am going to give you a stronger antibiotic as it seems you must be immune to antibiotics'' , so he gave me Augmentin 375mg, i hate meds but i know i have to take these, along with this mild throat pain, i have lumps in my neck, my neck isnt stiff just hurts on the top of my spine, my head is all hot, and i feel so week and tired and unwell, i am so freaking about other diseases, but my doctor assures me it is just severe tonsillitis, i am scared, my questions are why am i freaking? what is this lump (my doctor didnt say anything about it) ? and am i the only one that this has happened to, being resistant to antibiotics? any help advice please i am desperate i am worrying myself sick. thankyou

What was observed on your tonsil could have been a pustule. since you didn't respond to penicillin, that tends to rule out strep throat.

augmentin is one of the broadest antibiotics available. be sure and take every pill.

an inflamed throat looks like raw beef, but doctors can't always tell if it is a viral or bacterial infection. most cases of pharyingitis are caused by a virus, and no antibiotic can cure a virus.
