I've been having an earache for three days now. I saw a doctor at an insta care the first day, and he diagnosed me with a middle ear infection. He gave me amoxicillin for the infection And told me to take Ibuprofen and use heat packs to help with the pain. Two days later, I feel like it's gotten worse. My ear is throbbing and tender to the touch. My lymph node next to my ear is really swollen, and I can't talk or eat without pain in my jaw. Is it possible that there is something going on besides the middle ear infection? Is there something else I could do to help with the pain?
I have acid reflux and seasonal allergies so usually my throat feels a bit uncomfortable. I do not have tonsils but I see big red veins in the back of my throats and orangish bumps there as well. I feel the same as normal daily post nasal drip & occasional food coming up with the acid reflux. Is there anything wrong with my throat? I'm a bit worried. Ive gotten strep 2 times before back to back at the end of last year surprisingly I was shocked I had strep bc I just had a sore throat but otherwise felt the same.
I am getting very hard cough sticked into my nose. Although my nose is not congested but it is irritating. Sometimes I feel headache because of that. How can I remove that?
Have seen multiple doctors but have seen not much relief. Some say I have allergic rhinitis, some say I have asthma and some say its bronchitis. I moved to the US from India 2 years back and since then I have been facing difficulty in breathing. It started with a cold and congestion (at least that's what I think) and it only got worse with time. Doctors have checked the internals of my nose and mouth and say that the nose is heavily inflamed with the air passage being very small. Sometimes it gets uncomfortable to breathe and then I have to open my mouth and take a deep breath. My tonsils are of grade 3+ just a little smaller than kissing tonsils. I also face trouble during sleeping and snore and drool a lot. I am not sure what to do.
Recently i had cold...but now i hv recovered from the cold but my nose keeps running ..sometimes it get blocked
