I have been sick with sore throat, laryngitis, cough, sinus

I have been sick with sore throat, laryngitis, cough, sinus infection, and right ear pain since Sept 8. I have been to the dr twice in Sept. I just finished my second round of antibiotic (augmentin) this morning and already my throat is sore again and my right ear is bothering me. Dr. says it is a virus and really did not want to give me antibiotic. Both times symptoms cleared up..but end up with same problem. Any ideas?

Hello, I have had a sore throat and laryngitis (?: no voice at all, strain to try to get a whisper out) since last Thursday, so thus is day 5, I have been quite congested in sinus and ears for last 2 days, and now coughing hard and mucus in lungs I think. Hurts and scratches now when I cough. I am assuming it s not bronchitis and laryngitis, and wondering if I should still let it pass, or need a doctor? Also, should I absolutely refrain from exercise ? I ran a steady 7 km run yesterday then went for a run, and would like to go to the gym tonight? It s worse at night when I lie down. I m fatigued but functional. Thank you, J.

Hi I m 57 yr female with history of mito myopathy. I have been sick with sore throat upper throat swelling began Thursday which was relieved on Friday with coughing out the thick gobs of yellow brown tinged mucous. Bad sinus headache Saturday. Drainage still thick yellow lightening up as day progresses. Today saw the PA at my dr office. Heard some noise in left lower lobe. Thick sinus drainage in back of throat. Chills red face but no fever. Started zpack at 230 pm today. The swelling has moved to the vocal cord area with some strider when I inhale. I have a cool mist vaporizer and I have been using qvar steroid inhaler. I also use CPAP at night. I m really scared because I had laryngeal spasms in 2003. I don t want them again. They were believed to be caused my reflux. I have albuteral inhaler and xooenex aerosol but I don t like to use them as they worsen the mito and cause tachycardia and anxiety symptoms. Any other suggestions are appreciated.
