Hi, thanks for getting in touch. It sounds like you need a full evaluation really including blood tests looking for chronic infection and possibly a camera into your throat. I would re-approach the GP and either ask for an ENT referral with some blood tests also. You are always entitled to ask for a second opinion and your doctor will at the minimum arrange for you to see another doctor for their opinion but I think you're right that further tests ought to be carried out.

Hi dr karim i have had blood tests amd all came back clear i am so scared its something serious

I think therefore it's important you do see a specialist particularly if your symptoms haven't gone after multiple rounds of treatment. I would seek an ENT consult and take it from there.
