Question: I've had a sore throat, sinus pressure, and lots of mucus for several days (no fever). Today, I woke up with pink eye. I have important in person interviews on Thursday afternoon. I have a doctor's appointment at 4pm Eastern today. Do you think my symptoms (especially the pink eye) will be better by my interview, or should I reschedule? It has been difficult to schedule the interviews, so I am reluctant.

Brief Answer:
Allergic conjunctivitis

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for choosing HCM
Pink eye is called conjunctivitis.Most likely in your case its allergic conjunctivitis.It usually takes 3-5days for the problem to settle down.However you can use antihistaminic and anti inflammatory drops to speed up recovery.I would suggest you to reschedule your interviews if possible as things will take atleast 3-5 days to be normal.
Thanks!

My 13 year old daughter has complained of twisty upset stomach for 3 days now. She had a low-grade fever, but it is gone. Today she s still complaining of an upset stomach, not menstrual cramps . No vomiting , no diarrhea . She says it s not stress or anxiety , but she doesn t feel well enough to go to school. Could she have a bug or strep? In the past she had these symptoms and no sore throat, but turned out she had strep. I m debating whether to take her to the doctor because if it s viral, the doctor can t give her anything anyway, but then again, it could be strep. I think she really doesn t feel well, but my husband thinks she s faking. She said the pain was 7 on a scale of 1-10, today 6.

I am having fever, diarrhea, sometimes watery, some abdominal and lower back pain, with a sore throat and a cough that just started. I am a specific patient, as I have had a total colectomy and hysterectomy. Any idea if this requires a trip to ER? I am moderately dehydrated as well.

My whole body all of a sudden started aching, I have a sore throat and a stuffy nose. My head literally feels like it is about to explode. I get really dizzy when I stand up and every muscle in my body is sore and tingly. Is this just a summer flu or something I should be more concerned about? It all of a sudden just hit me today and no onset signs.
