Hello I am Dr Ravinder Sharma ENT surgeon. On the basis of the information provided it appears that you had gastroenteritis or food poisoning. Nausea, vomiting, fever, malaise and bodyache 4 to 6 hours after meal makes this as a probable diagnosis.

Your past history is also suggestive of recurrent throat infections and you have allergy to fog, dust, ice and food colours. Throat irritation and altered taste sensation may be because of acute infection of throat. People with history of allergy in throat and nose are more at risk of developing upper sinuses, noe and pharynx).

However you require an examination of the throat and a physician consultation will help in getting the definitive diagnosis. I would advise you to consult a family physician or a MD medicine doctor and a ENT specialist for the treatment.

I hope this answers your query. Feel free to contact me I you need further help about it

with warm regards

two months ago I began with an upper respiratory infection. I temporarily lost my voice, but this resolved quickly. I then began having palpitations, anterior neck pain, headaches, fatigue. I took a full course of Augmentin, but once stopped, all symptoms continued again. Now I have palpitation that are intense, and wake me out of a sound sleep. My heart thumps all night, and I can tell it skips beats. My anterior neck will have an odd pain, and my left lymph node is swollen again. My sinuses are chronically infected it seems as well. The headache throbs, and the pain is moderate.

hello. i have no idea if i have a cold or flu or what. i was looking online but they say a cold you would have a runny nose. i do not but my nose is a little plugged [i can still breathe..and i thinks its been like this before..i dont think its allergies because i am not sneezing] i was coughing (it's getting a little better). i do not have a headache or puffy eyes. i started feeling bad (sore throat- it hurt to talk and swollow) maybe on the 19th or 18th [every so often coughing really bad as well] and i have been taking plenty of Airborne. Today my throat does not hurt when i speak (it doesnt hurt when i just feels odd) and i have not been coughing as much (maybe 1/2 or 1/4 of what i was coughing like]. Is this a cold or flu or what? and is it contagious [still? how would i know if it was] ? i do not want to get my family sick and i would like to haang out with a friend this weekend.
