Common Questions and Answers about How long for antibiotics to work for tonsillitis


Avatar f tn I also *definitely* don't want this recurring again, so if I have to nuke my intestines to kill this thing for good, so be it ... It's rare for me to get this sick more than once every two to three years, so twice in three months was quite the surprise.
Avatar f tn I am so sorry for your losses. I have never heard of tonsillitis causing a miscarriage, but I know some antibiotics can cause issues. I have also heard that some people who get pregnant right after a previous miscarriage have a repeat miscarriage because the lining of the uterus is not strong enough to properly maintain a pregnancy. I ended up having a D&C because my body was not disposing the tissue.
Avatar n tn I'm 52 and contracted EBV in the late summer..I've been off work ever since...I irst had tonsillitis and was given antibiotics..but soreness came back, then I have mild sudden fevers they lasted a few weeks, very on and off, not permanat and not eay to might have thought you just had too many clothes on if you get me..Eventually the Doctor thought EBV....I have had a blood test for ws negative but this isnt unusual espeacially if time has passed.
748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
Avatar m tn the symptoms are so clear and brutal BUT yet so unclear and so hard to verbalize to the doctor , it's so frustrating , it literally feels like you are slowly dying but you still look great on the outside so it's very hard to be taken serious with this invincible disease even though it's worse then anything Ive had (that is visibly by test) This is worse then anything because you don't know what to fight in your body or how to fight and the worse part is that you get no help from nowhere.
Avatar m tn Unfortunately i don't think so.I'm in the same situation for 3 years.I think it's very important to share how is our partners right now.Does yours girlfriends have symptoms?After first unprotected sex with my gf she develop white tongue, now is have stomach pain and helicobacter pilori...
162948 tn?1205256292 I know your period is the lining in your uterus which the mirena keeps it thin so obviously keeps mine to nothing since i dont bleed. I am really concerned now as to how long it is going to take me to concieve. I had a friend who got hers pulled out and got pregnant the next day. Now I really wonder when I should get it taken out. Now or when hes here so we can have sex right away.
Avatar n tn Just one quick clarification question.... Exactly how long after ARS symptoms appear, would you expect a test to be positive? When I say I got tested 18 days after the onset of my symptoms, this means it was 18 days after I first noticed the swollen lymph node. And over the next 2-3 days, the fever and other symptoms gradually appeared. So the symptoms weren't in full force until about 15 days before my negative test.
Avatar n tn My tonsillitis basically is severe pain for a few days, then usually subsides after a week on antibiotics. I rarely get fever. It does mean a few days off work. Happens often when I travel for work as I hardly get any sleep on flights. I'm close to recovering from another bout, but went to see an ENT this time. Did a scope. Diagnosis was chronic tonsillitis (picture shows a couple of small white spots on the tonsils, which ENT says could blow up again the next time my immune system drops).
Avatar m tn he penetrated me once, for a few seconds before i asked him to pull out. i have to say that i feel very healthy and that i'm gaining weight all the time (about 7 Killo in the past 5 years). my questions are: 1) are the short penetrations i described consider very risky? 2) after all this years if i did catch something would i feel sick by now? loose weight, etc... 3) from a medical point of view, do i even need testing?

Avatar n tn Hi how long did it take for the rash to subside and for you to feel better.. Please let me know..
Avatar m tn My doctors at Mayo were amazing purely because they treated me with respect and were insightful enough to admit when they didn't have a clue. I'm scheduled to go back to my PCP for another round of blood tests at the end of this month. I've been told to get my cortisol levels checked in addition to my thyroid because of my long term history of steroid use. If anyone has any other suggestions of what to get tested I'd be more than happy to hear it.
242516 tn?1368227505 When do I need antibiotics for a cold, as an adult? Never. Are you sick with a runny nose, sore throat, cough, possibly even goey green and brown stuff coming out? Well, you're not alone, you've got a cold like millions of other adults right now around the world. Colds are upper respiratory infections that are almost always caused by viruses in adults. They typically get better after a week to ten days.
Avatar f tn I often feel sick to my stomach after eating, too. People have tried to 'show me' how to burp, but it hasn't worked. I once even had my husband give me a modified Heimlich to no avail (and not a good idea, either). This is terrible!
Avatar n tn It has affected me even being able to do my motherly duties as well as even be able to work! I am praying for all of us!!!
Avatar f tn The doctor who said I need them removed said that the blood work was good, nothing more than tonsillitis. But why have they been swollen SO LONG?? I am 20 years old. I use to have strep very bad has a child. But I really never had trouble from my tonsils til now. I live on a dirt road. Since I have lived here, I have had bad sinus problems. I would cough up black stuff and blow my nose and black stuff would come out. It has been that way for years.
1074733 tn?1256235219 It was the most miserable time of my life up to that point. My doctor had me on prophylactic antibiotics for my bladder for the duration of the pregnancy, stool softener to help with constipation, vicodin for the pain, phenergan for the nausea and vomiting, and brethine to keep me from going into premature labor. He assured me they were all ok in pregnancy, and I just prayed that none of it would hurt the baby. She ended up coming a month premature. The doctor couldn't stop her.

Avatar n tn Strep Throat ( do not let this untreated or it will lead up to heart,joints,kidneys desease)it is very important to take all of the antibiotics or that particular infection will learn how to regect it. 4.Mono 5 Other Unknown Causes Hope these facts help you.Let me know how things go ok. if you have tonsillitis 3 to 5 times a year for 3 yrs or 7 infections per year, and other,problems that occur i would sugest a tonsilectomy/adendectomy if you have adenoid problems.
Avatar m tn Doctors may prescribe antibiotics for 10 to 12 days, and if that doesn’t work, as it rarely does, they may prescribe a different antibiotic for anywhere to 4 to 6 weeks, which is often effective. Sometimes it takes months and even a year of antibiotics to effect a cure. Steroid nasal sprays can also be prescribed, but the medical community is unsure of the possible side-effects of long-term use of steroid nasal sprays.
377493 tn?1356505749 Now, I fully respect that every parent should make the decision right for their child, and I truly believe that the majority are acting in what they believe to be in their childs best interest, but I still don't get it. I look at it this way...prior to having vaccines available, kids died from diseases we are now able to prevent. I look at the infant and child mortality rate in developing countries and see how many of these kids are dying from things preventable by vaccine.
Avatar dr m tn Sudden weather fluctuations such as pressure or humidity changes is another common trigger. If you’re susceptible to sleep-breathing problems at all (most modern humans are to some degree), any degree of inflammation in the throat will cause further swelling, starting up a vicious cycle that brings up more stomach juices into the throat, which causes more obstructed breathing and stomach juice reflux.

Avatar f tn I have spent a FURTUNE in doctors bills this and the past few months and would love to avoid another trip to the doctor and don't want more antibiotics. I have had 3 rounds of antibiotics for bronchitis, and strep in the past 5 months. I would totally ride this out and not worry so much but I have several medical tests/ procedures scheduled for out of town to diagnose some esophageal issues I have been experiencing.
Avatar m tn -Do I need to check with now Ex Girlfriend what antibiotics do and don't work?( I don't want to blame her for this if its not her fault) -Should I get a second opinion on this or does the doctors method of anti-inflammatory sound correct? -Could this be a STD like gonorrhea or chlamydia?
1408746 tn?1283678948 I just want to warn all of the young woman who may be wrongly diagnosed to ask the doctors that if they are already going to do an MRI on the pelvic, then, to also include the kidneys to check for Nutcracker. I think it should be a standard procedure when a woman comes in complaining of chronic pelvic pain....
Avatar f tn Went to my actual doctor today and she agreed my tonsils look pretty awful. She did a culture and sent it out to the lab to test for strep again and sent me for blood work to check for mono. She also prescribed me with Amox again for 10 days.
Avatar m tn If this is herpes am I likely to now have recurrent herpetic tonsillitis? Sorry for such a long rambling post and sorry for all the questions but I'm sure you can appreaciate how concerned I am!
Avatar f tn ) I apologize for the horrendous typing too, my phone is rebelling telling me its damn time to get to bed. ps. how long does a shot of Rocephin last? Why am I not better, is this pus ok to just drain down my throat?.... Dear Lord I want to feel better and get some sleep.
