    Throat Clearing/Coughing Issue

    Over the last month I’ve been been having an issue with my throat where it feels like I cannot clear my throat properly. I don’t necessarily have a consistent cough. I don’t have a constant hacking cough and it doesn’t feel like I have a bunch of phlegm in my throat. It’s just that when I have a tickle in my throat or if I need to cough for some reason it isn’t working. It feels like when I cough I can’t dig in and clear my throat. The cough just seems weak and doesn’t work. It’s hard to describe....

    HELP!!! Dog bite resulted in lose of cartilage in nose and infection—VERY SERIOUS!!

    Hello, I am writing on behalf of my sister in law. A year and a half ago her dog bit her on the bottom of her nose causing extensive damage. The cartilage In between the nostrils deteriorated and has fallen off leaving an open slit wound—effectively leaving her with the appearance of 3 nostrils. She has visited various EMTs and plastic surgeons within the Dallas Ft. Worth area but everyone says the same thing—they “have never seen anything like it”, check her nose to see if the condition has worsened....

    Extreme ear fullness/pressure all day every day, accompanied by pressure in the head and behind the nose, also headaches

    The symptoms have lasted for over a month now. I'd get up in the morning, will feel some fullness in the head. A couple of hours later (depends on the day really, not accurate) ear fullness will come on, when I yawn, the ears pop for like 3-4 seconds, then return to the fullness again. When I'm lying down on my back, I feel extreme pressure in the back of the head accompanied by pressure/fullness in the ears and behind the nose. It also feels like something's pressing against the throat....

    Can’t stop coughing

    I’ve been to every doctor in town and no one seemed to know why. Every other month or so, I would get this tickling in the back of the throat, then I’d cough here and there. Within a day or so, I’d be coughing nonstop with tight chest and mucus. Then my ears started to plug-up. Sometimes running nose but very congested chest. About 3-4 times a day, I would feel a stab at the back of the throat then I coughed until I threw up. I sleep with a humidifier every night so it’s not dry air. They did X-ray....

    Reaccuring severe sinus problems

    I am a 47 year old man and have had a extremely negitive person in my life who has assaulted me many times. Once he broke a large wine bottle over my head and since that I have had sinus and vision problems. It seems everytime I get into a fight I get a week of severe sinus infections. I usually feel my sinus pop and every time I suffer a week of extreme eye and nasal leaking that is vary uncomfortable. Although I am unsure if my vision is a result of age or from these assaults. I have started to....

    Tinnitus maybe maybe not

    Hello. I have been to 3 different ENTs, a neurologist, a PA, and an MD after nearly 7 months of noise in my ears or head that comes and goes. One awesome ENT discovered that I had a severe deviated septum and was suffering from major allergy issues. He put me on allergy drops and have had surgery for my septum. In my understanding, I still have about 3 months to go for complete healing. Could all this be the cause of this noise? I have had to hearing test, several MRI's of the brain, neck and....

    I can't stop picking my nose

    I'm am getting over a cold that lasted about a week. I have been blowing m nose constantly and I've noticed that the inside of my left nostril is damaged. It feels like there are dried boogers stuck inside of my nose which makes me want to continue to pick at it which leads it to bleed and then I start sneezing and blowing my nose even more. I notice that it is a little swollen and I think I can feel small bumps/pimples on the inside. Does anyone know if I can put any ointment in my nose....
