Thanks for writing to H.C.M. for your query.

I have gone through your query regarding redish discolouration of your ear and upper eyelids, you have off and on chills as well. For last few months you are having chest pain and pain over neck.

Weather your chills are associated with fever or not? Because if it is associated with chills than there are possibilities of Malaria / Filaria / septicemia.

You have complaint about pain over chest and ncek this might be due to GERD.(gastro esophageal reflux disease).But we have to rule out Cardiac involvement by your blood pressure and E.C.G.

For treatment just now you should take an anti allergic tab Levocetrizine 5 mg stat because your problem may be due to some allergic reaction as well.

You are advice for these investigations for reaching to correct diagnosis-


(b) E.C.G., & TMT,

(c) Upper GI Endoscopy.

After this by thorough examination and clinical co-relation of inferences of investigations one can reach to final diagnosis which may be accordingly plan for treatment.
