How to recognise a stroke: act FAST

 

Back Pain
Most cases of back pain get better on their own and you may not need to see a doctor.

If you’ve only had back pain for a few days or weeks, the following advice may help relieve your symptoms and speed up your recovery: remain as active as possible and try to continue with your daily activities, take over-the-counter painkillers, such as paracetamol or ibuprofen if you feel you need to, use hot or cold compression packs – you can buy these from your local pharmacy, or a bag of frozen vegetables and a hot water bottle will work just as well .
Cold & Flu
The main symptoms of winter cold and flu bugs are:
Coughing, sneezing, blocked nose, sore throat, headache, and a slight temperature .If these are the only symptoms you have, it’s unlikely that your GP will be able to do anything. You may want to visit your local pharmacy, where you can get advice on how to manage the symptoms and buy over-the-counter medicine.
Call 111 if you need medical help fast, but it’s not life threatening!
