Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
In my opinion, you should definitely get done chest x ray to identify the severity of lung infection (pneumonia).
If pneumonia is severe then you should start Intravenous antibiotics and fluids.
You may also need Nebulization to relieve chest tightness.
Don't worry, you will be alright with all these.
Consult pulmonologist and discuss all these.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.

I am 5 10 , 195 lbs, 24 years old male.... So sunday night I was getting a scratchy throat, but I was not worried, woke up next morning and had a sore throat, went to work it was manageable, asked fellow employees why my throat was only sore on one side. Monday night I started to get cold chills and a fever..Went to bed and woke up next morning with an even worse sore throat on my right side only. I was tired and had body aches, so I thought it was the flu or something, took some pain killers and went to work, Tuesday evening at work I was getting even more cold chills the night before , so I went home early and took a hot bath to warm me up, some tylenol and tried to sleep. Wednesday morning, same routine, right side of throat hurts even worse, where I can barely swallow liquids with out my throat hurting. So I took some thera-flu the prescribed dosage and continue to take it but still no results, but I happened to look in the mirror with a flashlight right next to my right tonsil it looks as if it got infected and there was white stuff stuck in there. I tried to remove it with a q-tip but was unsuccessful, not only did it hurt but it felt as if it was stuck in. Thursday I went to a doctor and she said I have some sort of pharyngitis, pre scribed me some amoxicillin and asked if I have post nasal drip, not that I know of.... But I have been following the directions and still now it is friday woke up pain in my throat on my right side only and I havent any real food since sunday... Am I not giving the amoxicillin enough time, if not if my throat continues to be in pain what s next?

Dear Sir or Madam,
A few months ago, when ejaculating I felt the pain. spem went to a small gel particles which are transparent and orange. After a few days it stopped. Now once again emerged.
Perhaps it is important to say that I had a sore throat and I therefore antibiotics.
With no sign of urgency.
Thank you in advance.
