I have had conjunctivitis since Wednesday morning, went in

Resolved Question:

I have had conjunctivitis since Wednesday morning, went in to work as usual as thought was just a sore eye little bit bloods shot. Thursday morning woke up with deffinate signs of the bacteria infection. Was prescribed eye drops from gp and been administering them 2 hourly as prompted. Eye seems to be no better and I have had a headache on and off since Wednesday. It hurts my head if I am to put my head down to looking at the ground position. I have also got flu like symptoms. As from yesterday Friday. Headache sneezing very sore throat with glands up, very bad back ache and achy body to the point my legs was uncomfortable when sitting too long so having to move about I now feel an earache coming on? Just seeking advise
Many thanks
