Question: Hi. I have pins and needles in my left leg. Sometimes I feel dizzy and sick.
It all started when I had very bad sore throat (mainly on the right side) with right ear ache and pain in right eye. I do not have sore throat anymore, but I still have pain in my right ear (mild pain) and headache.

Hi,

Thank you for your query.

1. The only way your right throat, eye and left leg may be co-related is due to a neurological problem. You should get a Neurologist's opinion.

2. The tingling (Parasthesia) in the left leg may be due to various separate (from the throat and eye) reasons such as a peripheral neuropathy, nutritional deficiencies (IBS), spinal problems including sciatica and so on.

3. I am assuming that you do not have diabetes or hypertension.

4. You will need an ear examination since you have dizziness.

5. The diizzy and sick feeling may also be due to anemia (low Hemoglobin), thyroid problems, hyper acidity and acid reflux.

6. Your sore thraot may initially be treated with antibiotics, anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic and decongestant medication. Multi-vitamins and medicated gargles will help.

7. The eye must be examined and sinusitis ruled out.

I hope that I have answered your queries. If you have any further questions, I will be available to answer them.

Regards.

I am a 53 year old female, 5 ft 3 ins and 13stone 8lbs. about 7 years ago I had a bad chest infection which I didn t take medication for as it happened over the Xmas holidays. Since then, whenever I get a virus or a cold the right side of my throat and chest feels heavy and I get a cough which takes a while to go away. Is this normal? I also suffer from chronic sinusitis which doesn t help as I get a mucus build up on that side of my throat most days

I am 38 year old female. 5 foot tall, 60 kg and relatively healthy. I have been prescribed antibiotics for sinus infection 2 months ago with not much relief have had 4 courses. In past 3 days have developed trimenigal neuralgia and was sent for CT. CT retured with polypodial mucosal thickening involving maxillary antra bilaterally including 3 cm polp in left antrum and 2 cm polyp in right antrum. Left polyp extending into and occluding the ostium antrum. There is also marked narrowing of the nasal cavity bilaterally. There is a small concha bullosa of the left middle turbinate. The post nasal space is clear . I am off to GP this afternoon and am worried and just wanted to know could this be the reason for TN? Thanks
