Avatar f tn I'm feeling a sore throat coming and my ears are getting plugged can I take any kind off meds ?????
Avatar f tn Hello, I am still breastfeeding my 2 year old. My problem is that recently I noticed that my armpits are sore and slightly painful if I press on that area. It's not bad pain and there's no pain or lumps in the breasts. No fever symptoms either. Could this be due to prolonged breasfeeding and that my child randomly feeds at different times? Or maybe it's hormonal? Any suggestions as to the reason why? I also want to add that I am quite an anxious person.
Avatar n tn When I swallow, I sometimes feel like a popping feeling in my ear? Is this just residual from my cold? My throat was very sore with the cold and I lost my voice. I still have "morning voice" most of the day. I'm a breastfeeding mother so don't take any kind of medication. I have been sucking lots of fisherman friends lozenges. I'm just getting frustrated because everything I read says that a sore throat should clear up in a few days.
Avatar n tn i've got a nasty back-to-school cold (sore throat, headache, runny nose, mucusy, etc) inherited from my oldest. i took ibuprofen for the headache, saltwater gargle for the throat. i dont want to take sudafed/benadryl etc but some herbal tea would be nice.. what's safe while breastfeeding?? decaf green tea i understand to be OK.. peppermint tea, they say might cause spittiness... any ideas?

Avatar f tn She seems to be doing better now, since her feeding earlier. Her Daddy has had a bad sore throat for about a week now, and he also has PINK EYE, if you can believe that!! We have been careful not to put her too close to his face, and he ahs been good about washing and sterilizing his hands. So far so clear on the pink eye. Is there anything I can give her for a sore throat? I am going to call her pedi this morning to see if I can't get an appointment.

1499017 tn?1297466029 Try to not use your voice unless necessary and never clear your throat (clearing your throat is bad on vocal cords). Instead if you need to clear your throat open your mouth and do short coughs. I have had the flu all weekend and I'm also 10 weeks. It really stinks being sick while pregnant!!!
180483 tn?1229532768 I took tylenol the first day when it started with a pounding headache and sore throat. Drank hot water with honey and lemon juice which helped the scratch throat. Now my sinuses are stufffed up and I have an occasional cough from the drainage. Pediatrician okay'd the Emergen-C vitamin supplement packets, so I've been taking those 1 to 2 times a day, plus trying to get as much rest as possible.

Avatar f tn 2 (my PCP did not order T3) and ESR was 64. I have had jaw pain, headache, and throat pain ranging from sore throat to a sharp pain at the base of my throat, often when I swallow. From what I have read, it sounds like I have subacute thyroiditis except that I am now sweating often, have heat intolerance, and awaken at 3:00 am feeling like my heart is pounding (I just started metoprolol for this). I am trying to get into see an endocrinologist.
Avatar n tn For the last few weeks I have been suffering from incredibly sensitive eyes/eyelids which are red, dry and sore, similar to sunburn. I initially thought it was because of some cheap make-up remover wipes that I used to take off my mascara. Although I had been using them for a while, they soon started to sting and burn the area around my eyes whenever I used them. The use of any eye make-up other than mascara would result in a stinging sensation, which varied in terms of severity.
682373 tn?1239216879 I have no idea what kind of Cold relief medicines I can take while I am breastfeeding my little one. I have a cough, sneezing, sore throat, sometime runny most of the time stuffy nose. Low grade fever, head aches and dizzyness because when I blow my nose my ears stuff up?!?!?!?! Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You!
Avatar f tn Note though, I was breastfeeding so I did not do an ultrasound, and it meant I would have to have radioactive iodine) Now, fast forward- When i became pregnant with my third (currently) I had my thyroid levels checked- something I did myself.
Avatar f tn Stick with Tylenol for aches and pains.

Avatar f tn I just had my baby Saturday and since then I've had a bad sore throat and I feel fine other than that but I'm so worried about getting my baby sick. Can you easily spread a cold to a baby?
689528 tn?1364139441 I've also noticed that at times I feel my hands are really sore and stiff. I'm hoping it's more of a breastfeeding thing but I will talk to her and see.
621803 tn?1302891941 My baby is almost 6 weeks now, and I've come down with a sore throat, achiness, and the start of a cough. Do you guys have any suggestions on how to keep Braeden from catching what I have? I'm exclusively breastfeeding, and DH works during the day, so I have no choice but to be around him. Will the fact that I'm BF help him ward it off?
Avatar m tn Chlamydia is even more rare and can't sustain in throat long (only a few days maybe, gonno Could stay in throat for a week or two, but inost cases would give a sore throat). So chance you got something and have not the normal symptoms is not big. Chlamydia and gonno are not transmitted by breastfeeding.
Avatar f tn I have a sore throat and starting to feel sick is there anything I can take to stop it or ease the pain it's keeping me awake, please someone help!!
Avatar f tn My test was 44 days after the needle stick. How accurate is my test? I'm worried because my husband had a very sore throat with fever. The sore throat lasted 3 days, was better after antibiotics were started and only had fever one day. I'm so very afraid that I could be hurting him or my baby by breastfeeding. I know the patient tested negative, but I keep thinking about the possibility of the patient being in the window period.
Avatar n tn - Sudden onset of bad sore throat. Doc thought its tonsils, was put on a 10 day Bactrum dosage to cure the bacteria. July 2006:- One low risk exposure with a partner of unknown status. Sucked her nipples for a few minutes and was given a HJ without a condom. December 2006:- One low risk exposure with a partner of unknown status, who had a 2 year baby. Not sure if she was still breastfeeding her kid. I sucked her nipples for about 5 mins or so, did not feel any liquid going into my mouth.
