    Cough with no other symptoms

    I've have a cough for a week or more now, with no fever, no headache, no sore throat. A slight runny nose. I had a Covid19 test, just in case, but the results have no come back yet. I'm thinking it could be sinuses -- because I've had a runny nose all spring. But have no sinus headache or pressure around eyes, etc. I feel like I have post nasal drip -- that drips onto throat and makes it susceptible to irritation-- but not sore. It's a little worse when I lie down at night or do any....

    White Spots on left Tonsil

    Open windows and pneumonia

    I think I know the answer to this question however I need a general consensus. My father-in-law is on home hospice and can be very difficult to work with as far as his caregivers are concerned. Comfort for him and those in the house are very important. He insists on keeping all windows and doors closed throughout the house stating that they are "pneumonia holes". As you can imagine, fresh air does not get through the house so lingering odors can be very strong. I have read that some bacteria....

    Can a deviated septum affect accuracy of Covid 19 nasal test?

    I broke my nose years back and have a deviated septum and possibly some other structural differences in my nose. After the test I noticed that they put the swab in through the nostril that I have trouble breathing through. Could this affect whether the swab can be inserted far enough back to get enough of a sample for the test?

    Weird hearing loss occurrence

    Hey everyone, So I’ve been experiencing quite severe high frequency hearing loss in my right ear for a couple months now. It took a while but I finally wrapped my head around it but I noticed that when I yawn these high frequencies seem to come back (just for the time of the yawn itself / no additional HFs in the non-affected one). I am quite puzzled by this and will eventually and obviously end up taking an appointment with an ENT. Just seeking some preliminary input. Any ideas as to why this is....
