    Irregular thumping sound in left ear

    Looking for info on what might be the cause of a thumping sound in my left ear and how to make it stop. It is not consistent with my heart beat. It sounds more like a thump/knocking sound rather than a clicking or popping sound. I don't feel the change of pressure in my ears like I would if the pop was caused by altitude/pressure changes. It comes and goes all day long; some days more often than others, and sometimes louder than other times. Sometimes it will be 5-10 thumps in a row for just....

    Nasal flu vaccine

    Why is the nasal flu vaccine not recommended for over age 49? I'm 57 and have a bad needle phobia. I want the nasal vaccine, but what if the doc won't give me that one? I also heard that the nasal vaccine isn't as available this year. What is going on and can I override the age recommendation? Thanks.

    Sinus rinse disaster

    I attempted to use a sinus rinse to clear the think snot from my nose and sinuses so I could breathe. I gagged and the solution went up my eustation tubes into my middle ears. The pain was immediate and intense! After a bit of crying like a baby, I tried laying down to try to encourage the solution to come out. Two hours later and the solution is still in my middle ears. This causes muffled hearing, pain, and I can feel the fluid move around whenever I change positions. How do I get the solution....

    year round red throat both sides

    One day...the throat got red on the right side in one area and a couple of days later as I was checking it the left side started to slowly turn that reddish color. It's not bright red but a reddish/purple but not really purple. Strange. It's been there for over 2 yrs and treated for strep but that's still there. Allergies with dust and some pollen causes horrific nasal drip and probably why it won't clear up. Wondering if it will ever get back to normal pink throat. NO TONSILS NOW....

    Sudden vertigo/dizziness

    Starting 3 nights ago I was sitting in my office, doing my normal thing, feeling 100% normal, and I stood up, not quickly by any means, and was overcome with a very very intense dizziness and light headedness. This feeling which normally passes after a few minutes if it's from standing up did not pass for the entire night. I normally would have been up for another 5 or 6 hours but it was so intense even sitting that I had to lay down and try and force myself to sleep. This occurred again last....
