    Inner Ear Problems and Other Symptoms

    I recently went on a two-week trip to Paris with my girlfriend. Towards the end of our trip, she developed a cold, which I caught two days later. Up to a couple of days ago, I was exhibiting normal cold-like symptoms: lightly scratchy sore throat, mild cough, and sinus congestion. I was given an over-the-counter medication in France that is similar to Mucinex, and I've been taking that for about six days. Upon my arrival home four days ago, I was feeling much better but noticed that the congestion....

    Sinus infection or something else

    I have had this sinus issue for a month or more, at first I thought I just had a regular cold but it hasnt gone away. Im have a lot of pressure and headaches in my face and forehead. I have tried all sinus, congestion, and flu medicines to help but nothing works. Advil sinus congestion and pain helps with the pressure and headache for a little while but it comes back. I have this weird smell in my nose like I can smell the mucus or something. I dont know what to try. Any suggestions?

    Infectious mononucleosis (glandular fever)

    Hi, My friend has just suffered from Infectious mononucleosis (glandular fever) for about 6 weeks from the start of February to mid March, I accidentally drank out of his drink today, yet he has been completely fine for about 2 weeks now, I just wondered what the likelihood of becoming infected would be, I have no health issues and would say I have a pretty healthy immune system. I understand the symptons don't usually start showing for up to 4 weeks. I've just done this for precaution so....

    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....

As I headed to airport, it went out again. And it hurted very bad mid flight. After first flight landed, My left earddrum went out as well. I did regurgitate mucus again before last flight. But in that flight as well. I had pain in both ears. Since I've been on land, no pain. But my eardrums are still closed. Yes, I am still....

    11-year-old with constant horrible congestion & cold symptoms

    My daughter, age 11, has been stuck with horrible cold-like symptoms for about a year now. The main thing is that her nose is awfully congested and runny (if she leans back, you can see how filled and overflowing it is). She also has a minor wet cough, but that is much more manageable. By now we have figured out quite the "system" - since she needs to blow her nose every 2-10 minutes (no joke), she has packs of tissues in her desk and bag at school, there are boxes all over my house, and....
