    Irrational? Brain eating amoeba or just...

    I was doing cannon balls into a lake in Ohio and got water ( 85° air temp water temp 77°f) into my nose approx 16 days ago. Then 6 days later developed nasal congestion, facial pressure, and felt tired and ill. 8th day I used a nasal spray bottle to irrigate my nasal passages and felt better. 9 days from diving I've had a slight frontal headache that to me seems to be from sinus pressure. The headache has not went away and is what seems to be off and on sharp and dull. It hurts when i press just....

    Cartilage growths on neck

    I have two visible lumps on my neck just below the skin, one just below my adam's apple and the other lower down. I thought they might be thyroid nodules. Was sent for an ultrasound and the radiologist said they are lumps of cartilage (since they are white on the ultrasound) so they are nothing to worry about. What would cause lumps of cartilage to be growing on the front of my trachea? I couldn't find any information on this anywhere.

    Headache after living with low-frequency noise

    Hello, I've had headache after moving into an apartment where I hear low-frequency noise most of the time. The noise is probably generated by the AC of the unit above me. The AC goes on and off, but mostly on, producing the noise at a frequency lower than 200hz and a noise level of around 40 db-A. I've occasionally experienced headache since moving in, sometimes in the apartment, sometimes within one hour after leaving my apartment. For one night, I didn't wear ear plug before going to....

    Ear Infection or Permanent Tinnitus

    On Friday morning I woke up with my left ear feeling clogged and muffled with a ringing sound to it. I went to work as usual thinking things will clear up but on Saturday morning things where still the same. I do have sinus issues as well. My fiance made me go to an Urgent Care doctor who checked my ears and no ear wax was found. She stated that I have a ear infection and proscribed me Azithromycin and Prednisone. My hearing has cleared up but I still have the constant ringing in my left ear. I've....

    3 Weeks after Faciomaxillary surgery, swelling suddenly returns

    21 days ago, I had a large cyst removed from my left sinus cavity and a wisdom tooth removed from the sinus. Recovery went well (as far as I can tell). Swelling increased for 3 days, then steadily decreased. The sutures in my mouth dissolved and fell out. The only remaining thing was that I had a little bit of stiffness from where the incision was in my mouth (L shaped, along the gum line and then up toward my eye) and if I pressed on my face below my eye, I felt some uncomfortable pressure on the....

    Throat irritation from bad air?

    Hey guys so I have had an itchy tightness in my throat for about 4 weeks now. I went to the doctor and she said it was because of the fires in my area but, the feeling continues despite the fires being put out. Most of the time I don't notice it but in the mornings especially I feel my throat being dry. Also, i was diagnosed with HPV about a year ago and I want to be sure that this isn't a side affect of the disease. Any answers will help.
