    Juice down the wrong pipe. Suffocating sensation. Wheezing sound.

    I recently choked on watermelon juice (while eating and laughing simultaneously). I choked really bad. Ever since, I've been having a slight difficulty breathing (it feels as though something is stuck in my throat). Every time I inhale or exhale, there is a strange wheezing sound in my chest and the bottom of my throat. And when I cough, I get some of the juice back in my mouth (from the wrong pipe). Can someone tell me what's happening?

    Ear Infection after a Flushing

    I went to the doctor on a Monday for an annual check-up. During the check-up the doctor said that I had a lot of ear wax in my right ear. She recommended a ear flush. The nurse came in and put a wax softener in my ear. After about 3 minutes, she came back in with a syringe and tried to clean out my ear. After about 10 tries, she added more softer and had another nurse come in with a small water machine (don't know the name of it). After one try the machine removed the wax. After the cleaning....

    So I've had this problem for quite a while now it's seeming to get worse I'm just wondering if anyone else has had this and figured out what it was. I have really bad health anxiety and it's freaking me out. I have a picture.

    Need advice

    Hello. I am a 27 yo male. I live in Eastern Oklahoma. I have been a smoker for 8 years. Besides my current issue I have always been very healthy and felt great. I am on no medication and have never been diagnosed with any condition. My medical issue is undiagnosed but has been affecting me coming up on 18 months. I seem to have sinus issues that started as a congested nose and since has evolved into a congested nose and congested ears and head "fullness". There was also a period of about....

    Another ear infection while on antibiotics

    I woke up Saturday, June 3rd with chest congestion. For a week I tried all sorts of over the counter meds. Finally on Monday, June 12th I decided to see a dr because me left ear began to hurt and my throat as well. He gave me a steroid shot and prescribed amoxicillin for 10 days. Been taking that on the dot every 12 hours. Drainage hasn't stopped. I did feel as if some energy returned the next day but that started to decline. 2 days after my shot I woke up with my right ear hurting and throat....

    Cough, Foam, & Congestion

    Its only been a few days of congestion which for me is normal considering I'm allergic to pretty much anything nature wise; but now I keep choking on what feels like foam. I can feel it in my stomach; I'm burping - sorta; and even throwing up liquid. My cough has gotten worse than before and my nose will not stop running.
  • Diagnosed with strep - a few complications, however.

    I went to the emergency room on Saturday, they diagnosed me with strep, and gave me azythromycin (because i'm allergic to penicillin). I've been taking it for 3 out of the 5 days, and it still hasn't gotten any better - in fact, except for my fever breaking, it almost feels worse. I went to the emergency room again today (Monday), and they pretty much told me to finish the antibiotics and keep an eye on it. It burns my throat to eat anything, my ear also experiences a sharp pain when....

    I've been stuffed up for a month, then this happened:

    I've been stuffed up for over a month. Just constant stuffy nose. It's gotten a bit better...went to ENT doctor, gave me steroids, on Sudafed, Flonase, Claritin, etc-- it was bad enough a couple of weeks ago that I would inhale and nothing would happen out of either nostril. Now it's just the left side. I was in the shower about 10 days ago, and a big chunk of something came out, pretty gross. Fleshy-like substance...and since then smaller, similar things have been coming out too. Till....

    A Cough for Weeks and Now Other symptoms! Am I dying? Help Please!

    It starts with a cough that came out of nowhere. It started around 3-4 weeks ago. It was almost like a cough I would get after a bad cold or flu, but I had neither. I thought it was a sign I would get a cold or flu, but it never happened. I noticed I would cough up yellow phlegm still am now. While a cough was happening for the last couple of weeks, I started to notice other symptoms in the last 3-4 days. It began with some congestion, but now I am experiencing headaches as well. The headaches don't....
