Why does my head always seem to hurt but in different ways. Somtimes when in the sun my temples hurt. Some days ot feels like the front of my head is being compressed some days it feels like the sides of my head are being compressed and somtimes the same with the back. But I also get sharp shooting pains in my head alot. But their never in the same place. Usualy though at the sides I think. And last night it felt like there was somthing jabbing into the right back side of my head. The pain kept faiding away and back slowly. Then my right ear started hurting and becam itchy. Felt lime somthing was pushing up against my ear! Then the right side of my face started tingliling, then it felt like the right side of my throat was being closed or somthing then the left side of face started tingiling a little but though not nearly as much as the right side

i went to the dr. yesterday for sore throat, body aches. was told it was not strep but viral infection. she did notice a pus pocket on the right side of my throat, I was prescribed antibiotics (Z-pack) for 5 days. My dr told me to gargle with salt / warm water. My question is should I try to remove the pus pocket myself with a q-tip, as that is what I have been reading online that several people remove the pus pocket with q-tip.

Hello. 3 days ago, I had a short-lived stomach virus,around 24 hours long, and vomited a total of 21 times, causing me to lose some weight and become dehydrated. Ever since then, I have had this continuing bad taste in my mouth. I tried drinking a lot of water, brushing my teeth and tongue constantly, and using mouth wash, but it doesn't seem to work. Originally, the bad taste originated in the left side of my mouth, along my tongue, and now it has spread to my entire tongue. I thought it may have been oral thrush, but I saw no film or change in my tongue's appearance.

I have been for the last several months over the incision were it was drained forming a pus filled pimple that will grow then pop on it owns and the cycle repeats itself. Now another pus filled pimple has grown close to it as dose the exact same thing. I have been to the ENT 3 different times to be placed on abx, steriods and have myself do gargles of peroxide with non alcohol mouthwash. He now want to remove my tonsils and adeniods, I've never had strept throat and I don't suffer from continously sore throats. Is surgery really my only option?
