Hi, I had feeling of something stuck in my throat so I visited ENT doctor. The feeling of stuck sensation was at or above the thyroid cartilage. I also get pungent taste sometime when I swallow. Previously I had sore throat 1 week prior visiting the ENT DOCTOR. I did not take any medical help. I used to use salt water gargle and the symptoms subsided. This visit the doctor examined my throat and prescribed kefpod for 1 week. Next day swab test was done and blood picture was taken. The swab test showed no grown micro organism. Blood picture was normal. Doctor said it is viral infection and asked me to complete the antibiotic course and use nasal spray. Ear wax was also removed. Now it has been more than 20 days the feeling of stuck sensation is still persistent. I continue to use betadine gargle. What more can I do to get over the stuck sensation? Is it the follicle as my ENT doctor said should I under go any test? Please suggest me any thing to relieve the symptom Thank you

I thought I had a cold coming on, sore throat, ear ache, phlem, aching from head to toe. When to the dr. and received ciprofoxacn 500 mg every 12 hours. As long as I took the meds. I felt fine. Once I finished it. I started feeling sick again. Doctor prescribed a steroid pack - 7 days - taking fewer amts. each day till the last day...which is today. A few days ago as I started the lower doses of the pills I the symptoms came back - aching in the very center of my chest between my breasts, body aches, exhaustion/fatigue, some ear ache pain, phlem, and some jaw pain. All I want to do is go to bed. What is wrong with me...dr. told me if needed i could go back for more antibiotics or see a ear/nose/throat specialist.
My father, age 78, is in excellent health and only takes medication for hypercholesterolemia (low 200 s). He recently started Erythromycin for head and chest congestion and sore throat. After taking this for a few days he had blood blisters erupt in his scalp and ears. His head felt a lot of pressure and he was worried he might be having a stroke. His neck and head were stiff with some numbness in his right arm. He DC d the antibiotic and went to his doctor, who placed him on Prednisone. Now he is a little groggy and isn t feeling well so he stopped the Prednisone. He sounds weak and we aren t sure why he was put on the Prednisone. My question is - why take Prednisone if the blisters are drying up? What is the benefit versus the risks?
I am writing about my 14 year old son, who has been ill repeatedly 4 times for the past 7 weeks. He s been on antibiotics all 4 times, struggles to recover until his antibiotics are nearly gone, finally feels better for a few days and then gets it again. We are wondering if it is valley fever. Can that come with congestion/sinus symptoms? He s been diagnosed with sinus infections each time, but develops not only significant congestion/sinus symtpoms, but also chest pain, horrible coughing, fatigue, sore throat, and is miserable. He has faithfully taken not only strong antibiotics, but prescription strength cough syrup/decongestant, Flonase nasal spray, Zyrtec once a day, and breathing treatments up to 4 times a day, along with vitamin C and lots of fluids. He is otherwise very healthy, but his doctor is concerned that perhaps it is not really sinus infections he has had. I cannot find on the internet where there is a connection between congestion/sinus symptoms and Valley Fever - curious about that as others have asked if he has been tested for it. We live in Phoenix. As a young child he had repeated ear infections, but 4 years ago at age 10 he had his tonsils and adenoids removed, tubes in his ears, and a major sinus surgery. He has been very healthy ever since until now. Any ideas? Thank you verey much!
Have a sore throat for about 5-6 weeks, a cyst in my sinus cavatiy, which I haven t checked for a couple of years, and many diseases. Lupus, Hep C, osteoarthritis, fibromylaghia , and TIA s and heart palps. Tske Metroprolol, and some nutrional Physician pills, Sentra AM, Sentra PM, Theramine, Percura (for the neuropathy), and also now started P Darco pills, and use the tea when I feel like I need it. Helps. I try and eat good, and have a sweet tooth. Trying to curb that, but it is difficult. Just wondered what this sore throat could possibily be, and where to start looking for answers Oh and there is a complex cyst in my thyroid that hasn t been checked,. so obiviously I am getting appt. for the sore throat, and will look into thyroid. Wish I knew doctors in this area that were into the more natural treatments, like biomedicals, etc. Do you know any in this are you could recommend? I live in Kingman, AZ. Thank you for your expertise.
Last month (Early December) I was having ear pain, sore throat, cough, and mucus/runny nose. I also noticed a grouping of about 3 or 4 white spots(inflamed with puss-like characteristics). I had my tonsils removed about 8 years ago. My doctor said I had a regular infection it ll pass in 2 weeks, and the symptoms were gone. Yesterday I looked in my throat and those spots are identical and haven t resolved. When I was younger I had strep with the tonsil stones but this is not it. I snore. Have sore throats in the morning. Sacks or bumps in throat are not at all painful. My tongue is white at the very back of it. Doctor took a culture and it wasn t strep. Also I have put on about 12-20 lbs. since summer of 2010 and. H doctor is worried a out dibetes and cholesterol tests. Does anyone know what this is? Thank you.
For the past 3 weeks I have had a very persistent sore throat which at times has made it very difficult to swallow. Lemsips and lozengers ease and alcohol makes it worse. Sleeping can be disturbed due to being painful to swallow. The symptoms seem...
