Loss of voice due to cold, ringing in the ears. Swollen neck. Allergic reaction to medicine?

I don t know if any of these things have anything to do with the other.... I have had a cold for about a week. I lost my voice. My ears are ringing. My neck started hurting around noon today and now my hands are both very painful and somewhat swollen. I have not had any cold medication in over 48 hours, so I think an allergic reaction to medication is out... What can this be?

Hi Szylambert,
Thanks for writing your query.

After reading your post, it seems that your symptoms are due to upper respirtory tract infection.
You should get yourself examined by an ENT specialist.

Following investigations will be helpful in planning your treatment :-
1. Throat swab culture.
2. Complete Blood Count.

You can take antihistaminic like Fenofexadine 120 mg once a day along with decongestants like phenylepherine.

Pain in the body can be due to fever, and can be relieved by taking paracetamol one tablet for pain.

If the problem persists, get yourself examined by your doctor.
I hope this is helpful to you.
