    Cold(s) , Pains & Nosebleeds

    Hey guys, I'm in real need of some advice. I've never used one of these forums before, never posted anything personal, but I think I need some help. I've had a cold for roughly 2 months, started off with a terrible cough. Now I get head and ear aches intermittently, pains in my knees, elbows up to my wrists, my nose has been bleeding (not running) for 1 week constantly, I've been very tired and I've just come off a period lasting 5 days having excruciating pain around the same....

    Really Long Cold?

    So about 9 weeks ago I got a standard cough/cold, which is never fun, but hey everyone has been there. When it lasted about 3 weeks, I went to a doctor and was given an inhaler (I run so it was to help reduce inflammation while exercising) but was told it was viral, so they could only try and help to relieve the symptoms. The cough stopped affecting my 'everyday' life after about 4 weeks, but training was still largely affected, to the point where I decided to take a break from running to....

    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....

    Neti Pot--ear pain

    I recently began using a Neti Pot to irrigate my sinuses, but did not heed the advice to blow my nose gently through both nostrils (I blew my nose like normal, with plenty of pressure). And OUCH! I now have ear pain. From what I gather, the water was forced from my sinuses into my inner ear. My symptoms include constant pressure inside my ear, congestion that makes it hard to hear other people talking as well as how loudly I am speaking, and when I try to "pop" my ears there is only an....

    Twitching eardrum

    Ok, so for the last couple of months, my eardrum has been twitching! It doesn't hurt, but all of a sudden I will hear a noise and feel like a thud. It sounds/feels like my eardrum or something in there is twitching! Am I nuts or is this possible? And if possible, how do I make it stop?

    Strange yellow liquid dripping from my nose

    The past day or so i have had yellow liquid dripping from my nose. The liquid looks slightly like urine, and nothing like normal nasal discharge. The liquid comes in just a few drips, and feels like a nosebleed. I had a cold just recently, but i have been over it for 2-3 days. Please help me!

    Why do I easily get sick? Can you please suggest which doctor I should see or tests to take to shed light on my condition?

    Hi, thanks for viewing my post. Two years ago, I considered myself fairly healthy. I rarely get the flu, cold or any other common diseases; I was generally more happy and contented with my health and body. Now I can't say the same. I'm 23 years old male from the Philippines and I'm just very disappointed that I'm feeling sickly and weak when I should be at the prime of my life. I have been calling off for work, skipping occasions and no longer seeing acquaintances. Probably every....

    Can you crack or break a rib from coughing?

    I've been hacking up a lung for the last month. I am usually up the majority of the night coughing --over and over and over again. At work, I sometimes have to work in a huddle room as to not disturb anyone because of how much I cough! I was diagnosed with walking pnuemonia earlier this month and while I've made a lot of improvement, I'm still excessively coughing. Now, whenever I take a deep breath and/or cough, I feel a really sharp pain in my rib. I'm worried I broke or cracked....
