    Constant swollen node with pain

    My lymph node under my right jaw swelled up about 6 months ago, it was hurting, and causing a foul taste in my mouth. For background, I am currently travelling so unfortunately always seeing different docs. I went to the doc, was prescribed antibiotics, but nothing improved, so a second course was taken and again nothing happened. I got an blood test for thyroid, celiac and iron, all came back normal. Went to another doc (by this point 5 months on), she took a blood test for mono and glandular fever....

    This Cold Will Not Go Away

    My 15 year old daughter has been sick since September (it has been about 3 months). At first it started as a typical cold, with a horrible sore throat and got better in a matter of days. She did not feel 100% better but better than it was after a week from the start. Then, all of a sudden, the cold hit a rough spot. She had a mid-grade fever and symptoms were getting worse. After about 3 days, the fever went away and she returned to school. She felt like a normal cold for about a month (mild symptoms....

    Ear problem

    I was just minding my own business when I felt a very itchy feeling in my ear. In order to relieve the itchiness I used a Q-tip to see if it was just wax, and while i saw quite a bit of wax I used another Q-tip and started moving it in and around my ear fast and harsh. When i pulled it out I saw blood and felt a stingy feeling after, but i still have hearing in that ear. Should I be concerned?

    Swollen Lymph nodes

    So crazy week, thought I had a salivary gland stone so I went to the doctor and he ordered a ultrasound. The ultrasound came back and said it was a enlarged lymph node. My doctor also diagnosed me with a ear infection on my right side. The swollen lymph nodes are on my left, why are the swollen lymph nodes located farther from the infection? The lymph nodes near the infection are a lot smaller than the ones on the left side of my face.

    GERD? Chronic Sinusitis? I'm Not Quite Sure.

    I'll try to make this as short as possible. So I've been feeling a bit gross recently, I quit my job to go to school Full-Time and I have been feeling a bit ill. The feeling I have is in my throat, it seems. This constant dryness in my throat, feels like a hairball is lodged in there. This has been going on for about 2 and a half months, and it actually is stopping me from doing normal every day activities. This feeling makes it hard for me to eat normally as well. If I go out to eat with....

    "Thunk" in ear (not tinnitus)

    For the past 6 years, ever since entering the 10th grade, I've had this thunking in my ears in response to external sounds.... it can be triggered by someone talking, my fridge, music, and other sounds. it thunks along to the "spikes" you see in music visualizers or seismographs and is NOT tinnitus. It also has somewhat of a phisical feeling, again like a "thunk" as if someoen has flicked my eardrum I can sleep at night if I put earplugs in, otherwise the thunking will keep....

    What is going on with my poor tongue

    3 months ago I noticed hard white growths on the surface of my tongue. Thinking that they were dead taste buds I started snipping them off but their condition soon worsened into a cluster of hard raised growths around the original growth location. Are these warts or inflamed taste buds? They don’t hurt at all.
