    I am so ill, I have severe ME anyway. Is there anything they can do, or will they just tell me to take painkillers and wait until I'm better. Been really ill for a day and a half.

    If you act very fast you might be prescribed tamiflu ... but there is no telling how you might react. On the other hand I do not know the antiviral policy in the UK. They might just say rest, drink fluids, and take some OTC painkillers.

    I also do not know if Tamiflu is effective against H3N2.

    I see you're in the UK. Call 111, tell them you are housebound and too ill to visit the doctor. Someone will call you back and either give you the same info that a doctor would give you (rest, take painkillers, keep taking in fluids etc), or arrange for someone to visit you. Hope you feel better soon.
