Hi, my daughter is a graduate student, 28 years old,

Hi, my daughter is a graduate student, 28 years old, and has been suffering from cold/flu-like symptoms since mid-August. It began with severe headache, fever, vomiting, extreme dizziness and ringing in her ears. She went to Urgent Care and they gave her Amoxicillin for 10 days. She continued to feel poorly. Two weeks ago, she went to an Ear-Nose-Throat Specialist because she could not hear out of one ear and the ringing in her ears was worsening. Doctor put her on Flonase and an anti-viral medication for 14 days. She began feeling better in a few days, her ears began clearing and the ringing subsided substantially. She finished the anti-viral meds on Tuesday and today the fever, headache, fatigue and ringing in her ears returned. She seemed to be responding favorably to the anti-viral meds, but why would the symptoms return if her illness was viral in nature?

Hi, My 23 year old college son has been experiencing hair loss over the last couple of months and can t figure out why. I thought it might be due to stress. He is an senior engineering major student. He also had a mild non-itching body rash covering his trunk for several weeks too. It seems to have slowly disappeared. I have tried to get him to go to the college clinic but he has very little time to stop and go. I am not sure if we should be worried about this or not. What do you think? Thanks

Hello, My name is XXXXXXX and I am an 18-year-old senior who just graduated from high school. My twin brother and I are going to be moving to college in less than a month, but I am afraid that we may have contracted mononucleosis from our friend. Yesterday, we all played a few brass instruments together and swapped around; only until later did we remember that he had mono last year. I don t know when he had mono exactly, but he tells me that it was over a year-and-a-half ago and assures me that we will not be infected. Still, I can t help feeling that we will contract the disease, ruining our first crucial weeks at college. Any answer to my query will be appreciated. Thank you again.
