    I've been sick since last week of December & nothing is getting better...kinda freaking!

    Ok, yeah...I'm an utter moron & with my horrid luck lately, a Darwin Award recipient is probably in my near future. Anyway, I don't get sick. Like ever. However, the last week of December, I got my *** handed to me by some microbe. Came on like gangbusters & HASN'T LET UP. Horrible coughing (the worst is when I'm trying to sleep), severe sore throat, absolutely ZERO voice (it kinda ranges from some super deep freaky frog to a squeek). Constantly cold, ears hurt...and always....

    Constant Low-Grade Fever & Dripping Sweat

    I am a Female and I'm 23. For like 3 weeks every time I take my temperature with an oral thermometer it is always anywhere from 99.8-100.5. But I'm also constantly sweating and nothing can seem to cool me down. I will break into a sweat just sitting down and watching tv or even just laying in my bed. And I don't get hot in "flashes," I stay extremely hot and sweaty. Also I sweat everywhere, not just in certain places. I also don't ever seem to have an appetite or I feel....

    Sinus infection and tinnitus

    Hello, before I get started I'll tell you that I have had tinnitus for the past 9-10 years. Approximately 4 days ago I was exposed to a very loud fire alarm in a small corridor. After the fire alarm went off, my ears were hurting a bit but everything went back to normal. I came home a few hours later and fell asleep on the the couch. When I woke up I noticed my tinnitus was way louder than usual, I was dizzy, all sound has became sensitive to my ears, have nausea, diarrhea, hot and cold flashes....

    ear pain when swallowing and sore scalp

    It started with cold like symptoms including a minor sore throat and lots of yellowish green mucus. I treated it like a normal cold using home remedies and those symptoms went away after a week but during this my ear would hurt everytime I swallowed only on one side. Certain spots on my head also hurt when touched or my hair moves like my scalp is very sore in those places. I tried to look for any change in the skin on my scalp but haven't noticed any difference. Thinking that it is an ear infection....

    Sore throat + ear ache for ten days

    Hello...I've been having severe pain in my throat and right ear for ten days now.

I went to a walk-in clinic on Saturday (eigth day of sickness), and they tested me for Strep (negative) and said that my throat was red, but my lungs and sinuses were clear. I was told to drink plenty of fluids, which I am. However, the pain is almost debilitating....

    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

    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....
