Brief Answer:
ENT and Orthopedics specialist

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Sore throat and sinus infection could be due to bacterial infection, you may have to be placed on antibiotics like Azithromycin. You may have to consult a ENT specialist for the same.

Meanwhile you may have to gargle with antiseptic solution like Chlorhexdine solution thrice daily after food. This will reduce the infection and also prevent the further progression of the infection.

For the knee joint you may have to get the xray done to rule out any subluxation of the joint which usually presents with sharp pain. For this you may have to consult a Orthopedician .

Hope, I answered your query.

Please do ask if you have any doubts.

In pharmacies

Hi,

Thanks for writing back.

You will get Chlorhexidine in pharmacies.

You must be placed on antibiotics. Your ENT specialist can decide which is better considering your allergies.

Brief Answer:
Infection prevalent

Detailed Answer:
Hi again,

The Cipro antibiotic you are taking may not be effective in treating the infection. prevalence of the infection is the reason for loss of voice for sure.

Brief Answer:
Infection is still present

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

It simply means that the infection is still present and not cured completely.

The symptoms you have indicate inflammation in the airways due to the infection.

Two days ago I started getting occasional sharp pain inside my right ear and occasional shooting pains in my head, also on the right side. My head feels a little tender in that spot. I also noticed some small, painless lumps on my jaw line under my right ear. I have no idea if they re related to the other symptoms. Any ideas what this could be?

My period is now 16 days late, and it is very regular...I use a menstruation tracker. I have been feeling sick to my stomach, getting headaches, severe backaches, and feeling dizzy. I did take a pregnancy test, but it was negative, so I wasn't too worried because I am on the pill (although there were probably a few times where I forgot to take it and then doubled up the next night). Suddenly today, I started getting severe sharp pains in my lower abdomen (mostly on the left side, but radiating to both sides) and severe pains in my upper abdomen, like I was going to throw up...I feel weak and started to have bright red bleeding, although it isn't heavy. all day today before the pain, I was having brown discharge that had stringy clots in it. I am debating on visiting the ER and wanted to ask your opinion.
