Tonsillitis that has lasted for 2 weeks needs to be evaluated by a medical practitioner.
The severe pain is another indication for evaluation. Tonsillitis can cause formation of a peri-tonsillar abscess producing severe pain. This can hapen if no treatment is taken or if the microbes are resistant to the antibiotics used.
I advise you to go to the ER for evaluation & treatment.
Treatment would involve pain killers , antibiotics & possibly surgery.
