ENT Specialist 's  Response
1.You definitely need immediate examination by an ENT Specialist.

2. Foul smelling nasal discharge with headache, fever, tenderness and pain means that you have a severe infection in the nose and sinuses, which will require antibiotics and other supportive medications. Visit your nearest doctor for a full examination and prescription.

3. With proper and timely treament you will recover soon and the foul smell will go away.

Starting a few months ago I started having severe breast pain a week before my cycle, followed by a severely painful cycle. A few days later the pain gets better but never fully goes away. They have also grown almost 2 cups sizes. I have been to a GYN and my PCP and all both can say is cut caffeine and take NSAIDs (which do not help.) I have endometriosis so the cycle pain is more common. But the breasts are not. Is caffiene really that bad for you? I am very tired if hurting. I would also like to mention I have had multiple migraines and eczema out breaks more frequently than normal.

Hello, I am having trouble with...I get headaches from the seasonal allergies, the one thing I ve found that prevents those headaches from going into migraines is Excedrin migraine. I have Mitral valve prolapse & cannot take decongestants. I have taken the Excedrin for years with great success. Last summer I began taking magnesium and I starting breaking out in hives. I stopped the mag. & started it again, every now & then I still break out. I stopped the mag. again. I m concerned about the Excedrin but feel I have no other option. Can I all of a sudden have an allergy to Excedrin after all these years? Also, how long does it take for the magnesium to be out of my body?

hi im 29 after suffering a miscarriage i started to experience what felt like severe fatigue tested bloods slightly under the norm range for Vitamin b12 def so now have the 12 weekely jabs. i then had what doc said was a migraine aura could not see out of left eye this lasted 6 hours and returned back to norm however still had partial vision seemed blurred spoke to doc who recommended a sight test which came back norm. then after the aura i have been having on and off episodes where my i feel light headed, left side of body feels numb and heavy and and also the side of my mouth which at times i have slurred speech, i have had MRI which revealed nothing on migraine/tumours or lesions just a Tornwald cyst in my nose which they say has nothing to do with symptoms. both my mother and gran have MS and this was ruled out from MRI. consulant can not find anything wrong so is suggesting i have Hemiplegic Migraine and has prescribed Topiramate my doc does not think that migraine is the cause but has gave me tablets anyway. this is all happening once a week roughly i have bad days and good days no headache is ever present. doc says i have GAD now but i suppose anyone would if they didn t know what was wrong with them and feeling unable to function normally for a year do you think i should see a ENT cons? could it be caused from the cyst i do suffer with sinus problems and currently have Eustachian ear dysfuntion which drives me crazy!
