    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....

    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....

    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....

    Ear infection causing ringing and sensitivity to sound

    Hello. So few days back I slept fine but woke up with a sharp pain in my ear. I have this history of flu which remains 365 days but its more of a mild kind. No runny nose etc. I put in 3 drops of Otosporin in my ear to ease the pain and till night, the pain was gone. Though the very next morning when I woke up, I felt like I was hyper sensitive to sounds. Higher pitch sounds like horns, female voice and etc were causing me irritation as I felt they were too loud. Beside that, there was a constant....
