    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.

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....

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

    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....
