Hello, my symptoms began with blood coming out of my nose, facial pain, horrible pressure in head and the feeling of fluid in both ears. Had spinal tap and pressure was normal, proteins were very elevated, but no signs of infections. After spinal tap headache went away. I was placed on amox 125. Took those and had to be placed on clindamycin 300 for a few days before getting an abscessed tooth pulled on right side of head. Then was placed on amox 500. Ear on right side felt better and did not feel full but eustatian tube still sticky. On left side, ear still felt full. Was placed on dimista, singulair, Allegra and Sudafed pm. I could taste foul salty taste in back of mouth. A few days later parotid gland became infected. Left side of face began to swell and left eye was drooping. Could now taste salty fluid all over mouth. Was given penicillin and it helped for parotid gland but infection is coming back. When I lie down at night I hear chu chu sounds in my head and when I get out of the bed in the morning I am very dizzy and disoriented. When I swallow both ears crackle but my left ear, face, neck are in pain and are starting to swell again. Don’t know what to do. Thank you.

Hello, I am a 39 year old male, 5 10, 220lbs. Currently I am taking 10mg of Lexapro for anxiety/depression. I do not smoke or drink and try to run 10-20 miles per week. I have run some half-marathons and one full last Oct. In my family there is no history of heart disease but a history of anxiety/depression. About this time last year I thought I was having a heart attack and was taken to the ER. Tests done included the nuclear dye test, stress test, blood work, etc. everything came back as normal except I had a high CK level. The day prior to this episode I ran 10 miles and was dehydrated after the run. This episode was a severe panic attack and went to a therapist to try to work things out. Fast forward to about four months ago and my anxiety levels began to increase. I went to see my GP and was put on Lexapro. I also made an appt with a cardiologist and he reviewed my charts from the hospital visit and also did an echocardiogram. Everything checked out to be fine. The medication helped and was feeling better up until 2-3 weeks ago. Anxiety levels are back along with symptoms that include: chest tightness (pectoral muscles feel like they are always contracted), arm numbness that has been coming and going (feels like I hit my funny bone), minor insomnia, clenching my jaw. My anxiety cycle comes from the aches/pain that I am having. I am fearful that there is something still wrong. Here is my question, is it still safe to exercise while having these anxiety symptoms? I have a big run coming up and I realize this all might be due that. Any help is appreciated.

Hello doctor, I began taking doxycycline capsules twice a day about five days ago. My partner (male) had experienced discharge 2 weeks after intercourse. We have both been tested at several different places and everything has come back negative. He is on the same medication and his symptoms as well as my normal discharge has decreased considerably. Does this mean I was carrying an infection or STI that is not regularly tested for?

hello, I am 30 years old, 5 6 and about 208 lbs. Earlier tonight I was driving and smoking a cigarette. As soon as I started smoking the cigarette i felt a bit edgy kind of shakey . after a few minutes I felt an anxiety attack coming on. Ive had these before but not like today. My vision was very blurry, It was hard for me to focus on what was infront of me. My hands got cold and and started to tingle reallly bad like if they were numb. I began to sweat and had the feeling I was about to black out. I felt like I couldnt breath. could this have been a mini stroke and not a severe anxiety attack?
