    Voice is Hoarse

    I had the Flu 12/1/19. My fever cough and sniffles pretty much went away. I get a cough here and there. But my main issue is my voice/throat. It has not been the same since. Its sore all the time and voice is barely loud enough to hold a normal conversation. I always feel as if i have something in my throat and feeling swollen. Is this still a symptom of the Flu lingering? almost 4 months later? now with this virus i can not see a doctor as they cancel my appointment's. Its really uncomfortable....

    Fever for days

    I have had a fever for dayssss I’ve been to dr and been tested for the flu came back negative. They have me on preventative medicines, saying I have flu like virus with all the same symptoms as the flu. My question is I take Vicodin for another condition. I’ve been told that since I take Vicodin my fever is actually higher than it’s reading is this true??

    Possibly a cold or flu

    I have felt run down, sore throat, sneezing, and coughing. No fever that I know of. This has been going on since Sunday. Tonight my boyfriend looked at my neck and said that it looked swollen by my collar bones. Help...do y'all think I should go to the doctor or just let it take it's course??

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

    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....

    Nasal flu vaccine

    Why is the nasal flu vaccine not recommended for over age 49? I'm 57 and have a bad needle phobia. I want the nasal vaccine, but what if the doc won't give me that one? I also heard that the nasal vaccine isn't as available this year. What is going on and can I override the age recommendation? Thanks.

    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....

    Thumping or fluttering in ear

    For four months I have had an occasional and irregular thumping or fluttering in my ear. I have taken a decongestant, nasal spray, and used a sinus wash without success. Now as school starts it is getting worse. I am a choral conductor. This is disturbing!

    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....
