User :   hi, okay i have been sick with terrible flu/cold symptoms chronically since mid december...I will have periods of a week (not much longer if at all) where im feeling myself but then i am hit again with yet another flu. I have been given anti biotics but nothing seems to be helping. In january i had a severe throat infection where the lymph nodes in my throat where very very swollen to the point i couldnt swallow...anti biotics cured that but after taht i persistantly kept getting sick. I just finished my last round of anti biotics for strep throat a couple days ago and this morning i woke up again with a sore lump in my throat and the beginning stages of achyness
User :   i also had a sinus infection...and my ears have been ringing on and off for the past few weeks
