  • 21 hours ago


    I went into urgent care yesterday with an extremely sore throat. Doctor said I had classic symptoms of strep, swollen red throat and swollen lymph nodes. But the rapid test came back negative. Today the throat pain is worse and I now I have white spots and streaks on the sides of my throat and tonsils. Do I go back in? The nurse I called seemed more annoyed that I was calling first thing in the morning then caring to actually answer my question.

    Phantom smells or Phantosmia

    Out of no where I developed olfactory hallucinations. I smell things that arent there or real smells are distorted. I have had MRIs and been seen by several different ENTs. Tried steroids and zinc. Nothing. I cant taste the foods I cook and eat. I have drank sour milk and barely noticed it. I cant smell that my granddaughter needs a diaper change. I just cant take it anymore. What can I do?

    Fluid in ears

    Two weeks ago I developed bacterial pink eye. I attempted to treat it on my own for several days. When it did not clear I saw a doctor & was prescribed an antibiotic. Several days later I began to have a build up of fluid in both ears & temporary hearing loss accompanying it. I have been on the antibotic for a week & I still have fluid & very muffled hearing. Should I be concerned or will it eventually dissipate?

    Ruptured ear drum

    A month ago i had ear infection and was on antibiotics. They said i had a slight ear infection. It seemed to dull out until 3 days ago. Then it came back with a vengeance.

    Extensive ear problems

    My husband and I traveled to the state of Washington via plane on 9/26 - while there I started getting congested, sore throat, sinus infection, sore neck - where it hurt to turn it. But my ears also started to hurt. I contacted our local provider and they ordered Azithromycin 250 mg for me to take. It is 10/8 and I continue to have difficulty sleeping due to coughing and congestion but my ears are still painful and they feel like - when you fly and they change with high altitudes. If I hold my nose....

    Hello, I am a man who will soon be 24 years old, and who suffers from a severe dysphonia, it all began 10 years ago, at the beginning I was suffering from a flu and I was cured (there is no more normal then this) but except my voice and it lasted for a long time, we thought it was going to go alone but still nothing so we thought it was a voice change, but the problem is that the voice change in general doesn’t take a long time to pass, 10 years like, so they started mocking me (my voice) and people....

    Swollen Neck Lymph Nodes

    About 8 days ago I noticed I had swollen neck lymph nodes, and had no other symptoms (no fever, pain, throat, or mouth problems). This struck me as odd since I’ve never really noticed swollen lymph nodes even when I’m sick. About 5 days ago have been waking with with a dry mouth, lips, and nose. Could this be related to swollen lymph nodes? Are there any reasons why lymph nodes on my neck would swell without being sick? Or if it’s related would dry mouth/lips and swollen lymph nodes be something....
