I have had sinus pressure & bloody ear, should I see a doctor ?

Hi I have had sinus pressure behind right eye and in my right ear for 24hrs, now my right ear is bleeding. There was only a few drops of blood but I've never had that happen before. Should I see a doctor?

Hi.. Increase in the sinus pressure can lead to a minor trauma on the tympanic membrane which can cause bleeding.. It will heal spontaneously if the trauma is minor.. It is better you see a ENT surgeon to assess the condition..

I have been sick this past week week with sinus pressure, itchy ears, sore throat, watery eyes, and sneezing. The sore throat has been painful for 3 days now and when I looked for signs of strep today I noticed a very dark, almost black looking spot on my throat. I was able to reach it with a q-tip and it came out bloody. Is this normal with a cold or sinus infection? Or could it be something more severe and should be checked out by my doctor?

For a couple of months now, I have been experiencing pain/pressure on the right side of my face-sinus, ear, and back of my jaw-that would come and go. I also had a wisdom tooth that had recently cut through on that side so I figured that was the cause. I went to a dentist to see if she thought anything was wrong with my wisdom tooth, but she said that it was pericoronitis causing my pain. She gave me a referral to an oral surgeon anyways since it was so far back that it was difficult to clean. About 3 weeks ago I finally got my tooth removed. After about a week after everything felt fine! Then yesterday the pain came back. Mostly in my ear and sinus. Should I go to a doctor or a dentist?

I have been taking Protonix for 1 month since diagnosed with GERD. I saw my doctor and hep rescribed Doxycycline 100mg twice a day for a double ear infection and sinusitis ( head pressure for a week ) my doctor also told me to take Ibuprofen for the pain. Should I not use the ibuprofen and use Tylenol instead. He said ibuprofen would help the swelling but I am worried about the reflux symptoms. I have a sour taste in my mouth still and feel like I have phlegm with post nasal drip. I have an ENT appointment in 4 days but am so tired of being sick. I am 26 and weigh 260lbs. Would you suggest doubling the Protonix to decrease the GERD symptoms while on the Doxycycline ? He also called in Levaquin just in case I want to stop the doxycycline. ( FYI. I am very anxious about drugs and their side effects. I usually don t take anything more than Tylenol ).

Hi, I have been having trouble with my bowels for years, and I have seen many specialists. The only thing that was ever found is a non-specific colitis a year ago. However, I keep on having lots of nagging pain on my left side, and some days an intense shooting pain in the back, in the area of my kidneys. Do you have any idea what this could be?

Hi, i am 18yrs old and have been using spasmo proxyvon for the past 3yrs after i suffered from kidney stone pain. But as this drug was a effective pain killer, i started using it during my periods. I take 2-3 tabs per month, but as it is banned i am unable to get it at any drug store. Kindly suggest me an alternative during period pain.
with regards!

For the past several weeks I haven't felt myself. Firstly some basic data about myself: I'm 5'10, 130-135lbs, 32 year old Caucasian male. I suffer from allergies and take Claritin, I am also allergic to penecillin. I take excedrin for migraines on occasion.

For symptoms, I have been feeling overall fatigue. Great difficulty wake up in the morning as I feel very groggy. This week or so I have headaches that fade in and out. The past few days I've had abdominal discomfort (dull ache around the navel area). Every so often I also feel chest discomfort of pain. It is NOT a radiating pain, and it's always the same location. It's a slightly stinging pain but also a bit dull at the same time (I'm aware it's a bit of a contradiction) and sometimes I feel a kind of sinking feeling in my chest.

In general I have difficulty getting to sleep as i just do not feel like going to sleep, even though I may be physically and mentally exhausted. It has gotten worse the past couple weeks and now I just don't know why I won't go to sleep even though I'm barely able to stay awake.

My question, as it were, is there something terribly wrong with me? Something I'm not aware of?
