Feeling nauseated, bruising on inner thigh, lump in throat. What could this be ?

Hi There, I have been feeling off for the past couple weeks. Ive been nauseated, but not upset stomach - more just the lump in my throat . I noticed unexplained bruising on my inner thigh the other day, and the nausea finally brought me to the point of vomiting . I dont feel better either. My stomach doesnt hurt, and other than the lump in my throat I feel fine. What could this be?

Hello and welcome,

Discussing your nausea, it could be because of a change in diet, if you have been experiencing any? If not, nausea could be a symptom of various other conditions. Have you noticed the same earlier? If you do not feel any other symptom relating to a stomach condition, it could also be a condition relating to your ear.

There seems to be a lump in your throat. This is the normal description given by patients in relation to a swollen tonsil, also called tonsillitis. Which is a possibility.

This is a upper respiratory tract infection. And can be treated with short course of antibiotics. Many patients present with symptoms of a headache or pain around the ear (effected side).

In my opinion you should visit your family doctor, so he could view your throat and establish a diagnosis, either tonsillitis or other.

The inner thigh is one of the most common sites of bruising, especially in women. Could be due to their body type, or even because of the type of clothing. Although a doctor will have to view the bruise to rule out the worst, I suggest you to discuss and show your bruise to your doctor as well.

I hope this information has helped, you could write back to us for any further information.

Wishing you the best of health.
