Ear infection symptoms sore throat

Common Questions and Answers about Ear infection symptoms sore throat


Avatar f tn Hi, the symptoms described could be due to an infection, most probably streptococcal or a viral infection. Strep sore throat needs to be treated with an antibiotic as strep is a bacteria. Viral sore throat is best treated with rest, warm oral fluids and (OTC) tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen for pain.
Avatar m tn After that occured, for a number of hours yesterday I felt superb and thought I must have coughed up the culprit, or the infection. Then my symptoms started to come back, my right ear, sore throat, etc. Now my right side feels exactly the same way as when I was coughing hard. I can feel something that feels like a glob of mucus in my throat that will NOT come loose.
Avatar m tn I m having ear pain and sore throat and also have sore mouth, my tounge, upper area of mouth and also hav pain behind the ears...been like this for a week now. I m worried as I had a pap smear wich came back with hpv and ascus and I also hav large fibroids wich I m getting treatment for. My great worry now is that is this sore throat related to hpv as hpv can also cause head and neck cancer. I will be glad if someone can help me on it.
Avatar n tn Hi, having irritated sore throat and occasional burning for last 2 months. negative double ph probe with impedance for reflux, tried a trial of antireflux medications to no help. Ear nose throat doctor looked at throat didn't see anything wrong. Had an endoscopy which looked fine.
Avatar m tn Please be detailed with me about the symptoms I am having. The weight loss is the one that scares me. Sore throat turned to ear infection. No fever.
Avatar f tn I myself came down with the flu last week out of no where, and just yesterday after 5 days of constant dizziness that is getting worse standing or sitting down, ear pain, pressure in head, post nasal drip and coughing found out i also have a sinus infection and an ear infection. I would go and get seen as soon as possible that way you catch whatever you have early on..
2078179 tn?1331940461 Two days ago I woke up with a slight sore throat and cough. While the sore throat is gone I am still coughing up mucus, have a headache dizziness and at time extremely hot. I do also have a slight ear ache on both sides. I did have diabetes in the past but was able to get off medication because of diet and exercise but have gained a lot of the weight back.
Avatar n tn Neck lymph nodes can be the result of tonsillitis, pharyngitis (infection of upper throat), infection in mouth, caries in tooth, internal ear infection, outer ear infection, eczema, dermatitis, dandruff, breast cancer, fungal infection, other cancers like lymphoma etc. If you had flu like symptoms initially then it could be due to infectious mononucleosis too. In your case in all probability it is the outer ear infection.
Avatar n tn and then again the following morning I asked and he said he had used it. Now 3 and half weeks in I am feeling aches in muscles/chills/sore throat/ ear pain but no fever. I went to the doctor on the third day of these symptoms, thinking I had strep/ear infection and was informed that I had fluid in my ears and enlarged tonsils...also that my lymph nodes were swollen (in my neck). Well I left the doctor and it dawned on me later that "swollen lymph nodes" is a symptom of HIV.
Avatar f tn So I woke up this morning and my left ear was hurting very badly and when I swallowed, my ear and throat, which I had these symptoms before. But now it's in both ears and I'm starting to get a little concerned. Is there anything I can do so my throat and ears don't feel so bad? Answer soon!!!

Avatar f tn I've been having strange and lingering throat and ear symptoms for about a month and just want to get opinions without going straight to "It's definitely cancer!" Below is the timeline and I have no idea if they are all related or not, but I'm including even the first thing that seemed to happen because that is actually still bothering me. 1. Around Valentine's Day I had intense itching in my left ear.
862235 tn?1336060295 It could most probably be tonsillitis and a throat infection. Throat pain, difficulty swallowing, fever, scratchiness in the throat, post nasal drip, malaise and loss of appetite are symptoms of tonsillitis. It can be caused by bacteria like streptococcus or it could be a viral infection. Bacterial infections need antibiotics. Taking the antibiotic for the required amount of days may help to clear the infection. Steam inhalations and salt water gargles can help.
Avatar f tn Diahorea-gone 2days ago Swallen glands-on/off In your expert opinion you think my ear infection is related to my sore throat? This is quite possibly the wits sore throat I have had. Hurts to swallow,with yellow spots on the glands at back of throat. Also some ulcers have formed. As for the throat,it feels very sore and keep having to clear it. My ear infection is still present. Getting a little bit better,not hurting as much so able to sleep.
Avatar m tn It is now 13 days since the event I talked about, and I am on antibiotics for my ear infection. Today I have had a sore throat all day, despite being on the medication. As this is an ARS symptom would it change your mind about the event?
484844 tn?1253968693 Being hypothyroid can bring on viruses and colds. Even if you are not having classic symptoms the sore throat and ear pain can be a problem. I suffer that but as my TSH is lower it is less noticeable in the throat - no ear pain anymore. But the cough is there. I experience a dry cough too - but I smoke. Before I had thyroid problems I never noticed a "cough" but now it is there. Quit!!! I say to myself and that will happen MAy 17th. My sone asked me to do that for his birthday.
5615074 tn?1378316840 The only thing my doctor said to take for sore throat is Tylenol Extra Strength. But should I go in to see if what I have is another ear infection?
Avatar m tn You might want to see an ear nose throat specialist. It sounds like you have an ear and sinus infection going on at the same time. You could be having the sore throat from drainage. The specialist would be able to tell and if that's the case prescribe you an allergy med. Let us know how things turn out and take care.
Avatar m tn , which did not happen for my first sip. The next evening, I got low fever, sore throat and a small pox or nod at the back of my ear. Are these symptoms that I have got infected? Was I just over-worried and paranoid? Should I go for a HIV test? Your expert advice is much appreciated.
Avatar f tn I would say it might be the common cold!! I would go to the doctors just incase.
2133874 tn?1335812339 Started getting a little of that crud in my throat like something was draining and also a slightly sore throat. Not bad but it was noticeable. Also last Monday I just felt kind of "off". While eating lunch with some friends, my head felt like it was off balance if you know what i mean and i was definitely tired. Now a week later I'm feeling pretty much normal and the lump seems to be completely gone. It still itches a little behind my ear sometimes but there isn't any pain.
Avatar n tn I have a very inflamed throat and an ear ache which the doctor said was responding to the sore throat. PLEASE quick answer-Thanks SO much.
Avatar f tn My 15 month old has a sore throat that is so bad he refuses to eat or drink. We took him to the doctor and he checked his ears and throat so fast that the total time spent with us was 5 minutes tops. As he was walking out the door he says he is calling in a script for an antibiotic for ear infection. In my confusion and crying child in arm I should have said stop and take time to thoroughly check my child but did not.
