    Trouble swallowing and burning in my throat

    I have had trouble swallowing even saliva for a long time. I usually have to take a sip of water to even swallow saliva but anything I eat gets caught in my throat until I cough hard enough to have it fly out, even as small as a kernel of corn. This morning I had one of my coughing spells, without having eaten, and my throat and nostrils were on fire with an awful taste in my mouth. Do you know what this could be?

    Bleeding Tonsils

    I'm concerned because for about the last year or two, when I sleep at night I can taste and feel blood/phlem in my throat and when I get up in the night or in the morning I spit out blood. The Doctor tells me I have "Bleeding Tonsils". I have no fever, no sore throat or anything to indicate that I am sick. I just don't know why this is happening and would like to know how to cure it. I'm 56 years old so I don't think having a tonsillectomy at my age is something I really....

    Ear Hurts

    I think I might have ruptured my eardrum. I was battling a cough with a runny nose then one morning I woke up, nostril encrusted over, and a terrible ear ache. The cough went away but my ear has been leaking and I think is swollen shut. Also I have just noticed that I can't chew properly since my jaw won't close all the way. I have decreased hearing too. I would go to a doctor but the last time I went I got a surprise bill for $1000 even with "good" insurance. I am starting to get....

    I’ve been stuck on what this was since I got it. About a month ago I came down with a bug within a day. I had night sweats, muscle aches, a fever, and swollen tonsils coated with green and white stuff (bacteria?) I went to the doctor and got tested for the flu, strep throat, mono, and chlamydia all which came back negative. I was given antibiotics and my symptoms went away in a about a day. Two weeks prior I had given someone oral and I’m wondering if that has something to do with it. I’ve been reading....

    Any help; Appreciate it :)

    So, about 3 years ago, I was pretty normal. I was living my life, having fun. On New Year’s Eve, I started experiencing an odd ache behind my ear, along the skull. I immediately told my mother about it and she took me to the doctors, they brushed it off and said it was a normal migraine and that it would go away eventually. The pain never went away. I started getting very bad jaw aches, to the point where I’d start crying. I went to my dentist, they said it was normal and for two years straight they....

The doctor gave me another antibiotic, after 10 days I was feeling better but, my throat was still a bit sore, I went to the doctor....

    Worried about misdiagnosis of sinus infection.

    About 2 months ago I had eye issues that matched ocular migraine symptoms with no headache exactly, but I had never heard of an ocular migraine and had no idea what was going on so I went to my eye doctor. When I described my symptoms he said it might be a retinal tear so they took photos of my retinas and did ultrasounds on my eyes, but didn't find anything. I still felt like my eyes were bothering me but now in the form of occasional blurry vision and increased floaters, but I thought it was....
