    Long Term Side Effects of Antibiotics

    In winter of 2016 I fell ill and was inbetween insurance, so I went down to mexico for a reliable doctor's visit. The Dr prescribed me some antibiotics. I took it and only was able to do it for 3 days before my body couldn't handle it anymore. Since then I've gained a tremendous amount of weight and nothing I can do will change it. I've always been healthy, work out daily, and eat right and yet I still have gained over 50lbs. Even in pictures you could see I ballooned up within days....

    Cough. Morbidly obese. Pneumonia

    I am morbidly obese. Trying to lose weight. My brother was recently sick with a bad cough. He passed that to me. It’s kind of muscusy but dry. I have heard a lot of morbidly obese people die from pneumonia and it’s making me really scared. I don’t have anything else other then a cough...yet. I’ve only had a cough for about a day.

    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?
