throat

279234 tn?1363105249 Yup, had that a lot. It could well be associated with a sinus infection, where gunk (like my medical terminology?) is dripping onto the back of your throat on one side. I 'm thinking that especially since you complain of one-sided lymph node swelling too. Your allergy activity could have started it all. The usual OTC remedies often work well for this, but if it goes on long you might want to see you PCP.
Avatar m tn On saturday I started with a headache and then progressed into a sore throat on monday on one side and now it's both sides. The sore throat is almost like on the esophagus when touched on the outside it hurts. Opening my mouth wide or sneezing or yawning hurts not alot but it hurts. My ears hurt as well.

Avatar f tn It is throbbing and causing drainage to the back of my throat. It seems to only be the right side. The left side of my nose feels completely normal. It's much more sensitive to smells and breathing now. I'm not sure if this might have something to do with having small nostrils or not. I haven't had any nosebleeds, but I did nearly faint tonight after touching it for a moment to see if the swelling had gone down. Any ideas of what this could be?
Avatar m tn I have had hoarsness, pain and high pitched coughing from one side of my throat that sometimes causes choking.
Avatar f tn Can you call him and ask for another antibiotic? I don't know other antibiotics that wouldn't hurt your stomach.
Avatar m tn The pain meds do work, but at the same time that spot under and around my ear hurts a lot (plus this feeling like the side of my throat is swollen and sore .. but doctors never see anything). Why.. are decongestants, allergy meds, narcotic pain meds all making that area of my face MISERABLE!? The pain can be so bad that it radiates into that side of the sinuses. The left side of my face does it..but only a little. Before I took MTX, pain meds didnt do that.
Avatar f tn Last week, I was sitting at the table and noticed the throat and ear pain went from right to left for a few minutes and then returned to the right side. Now Wednesday, I wake up with extremely stuffed sinuses and lots of sinus pressure. The ear pain has somewhat subsided but my throat is just not normal. Yesterday, I had the worst sinus pressure ever and was tired (it may have been from the OTC allergy stuff I took) but I just feel like I keep getting worse.
Avatar m tn From 2 days ago i started having a sore throat on the right side of my throat. I only feel the pain when i swallow food/saliva. If i dont swallow there is no pain. I had a dental cleaning 4 days ago and i had extreme bleeding of my gum because they were very infected. But the Dental Hyg took care of it. I dont know if its related or not but what do you guys think is the problem here. I can't see my family doctor until Monday so i dont know what i should do.
Avatar f tn Everything on the left side of my face hurts. My neck is swollen and the lymph nodes hurt. My teeth feel sensitive on that side, even though I have been to the dentist and had fillings put in where I had some cavities. I have gone back twice and been assured there is no root canal issue. If I do not throw up anymore will the swelling and ear issue just go away? I have not been throwing up purposely, but I occasionally drink too much.
Avatar f tn I called back today and said my throat still hurts, it is now on my left side, it was on both sides. It hurts to swallow, feel dry and it feels like the outer part of my throat is swollen, my lymph nodes are sore and very tender to touch. I have to see my doctor today at 1pm in one hour. What else could be causing this? I have no fever, no runny noses, and no mucus. I have had my ears stuffed up, but they are no longer stuffy.
Avatar f tn I do have TMJ, I clench my jaw at night and often during the day. I have been having ear pain on that side. I did a endoscopy of my nose, ear and throat and the doctor said I was fine, just inflamed. Any ideas why inflammation can last this long? I was concerned with cancer but she told me she saw and felt nothing cancerous in my tonsil and throat. My ear is functioning properly but has pressure.
Avatar m tn all this pain is on the right side ear, sinus, eye throb once in a great while, neck and throat. nothing on left side it feels 100%.. could this all come from sinus issues.. i have started to wonder, no worry that its possible i have throat cancer or something like that...
Avatar f tn A few months ago, the side of my face started to hurt in combination with ear pain. My teeth gradually became sensitive. Then a few days ago, the left side of my face went numb and I had trouble smiling and whistling. My eye waters and twitches occasionally. I was told to go to the ER by a friend who is an EMT. They did a CT scan which was negative and said take anti inflammatory and it would go away in 24hrs. It's not working. Is there something else I can do?
Avatar m tn Hello, Infections of the throat are quite likely to affect the ear since there is a connection between the ear and throat through the Eustachian tube. Common cold, flu, acute sinusitis, tonsillitis, ear infection, tooth infection all can cause sore throat and ear ache. Throat infections can be caused by bacteria like streptococcus or it could be a viral infection. Bacterial infections need antibiotics. Try warm saline garles.That may provide some relief.
Avatar f tn Pain is becoming very irritation and unbearable. Now im having deep throat pain on my right side everytime i swallow including the jaw and inner ear pain at once. That pain in my throat hurts whn i turn my head to the left but not the right. The pain is literally one the right side. this is all becoming too much. It wont go away and im a little worried irritated and becoming agitated with the whole thing.
Avatar f tn My ear hurts occasionally and last week I actually got sick and my throat hurt very bad. I also noticed a lymph node on my trapezius muscle between my ear and my shoulder. Can my wisdom tooth be causing all this? Please help I am very stressed about this. I am a hypochondriac so that doesn't help. Going to dentist tomorrow to see.
1760651 tn?1313087439 I have severe congestion on one side of my face with some on the other, but not as severe. It started 2 nights ago now and I am miserable. I have a neti pot and due to my left side being completely blocked, have been unable to use it today. Yesterday, I was able to use the neti pot with success, which lasted for almost an hour before the left side 'blocked up' again.
Avatar n tn I had sore throat, ear aches, headaches, post nasal drip that burned throat, for a year. I had a Nursing drug handbook that showed side effects from drugs. I noticed Lipitor had several of the side effect symptoms I had. I talked to my Dr about it. He had me quit Lipitor 40 mg for one month. I had previously taken Lipitor for 15 years with no problems. I quit Lipitor 3 weeks ago.
Avatar m tn Also sometimes i get mild pain in right ear and weird jaw feelings after waking up when i sleep on the right side of my body. Do you think my wisdom tooth infection has spread or moved. Can an infection be present with such mild symptoms? 4 can a tooth ache cause node to swell?
Avatar m tn The last two days I have had some pain now in my RIGHT side of my face and some slight swelling there and it does hurt (oddly on my right side) and both sides will occasionally shoot minor pain into the ear or sometimes the throat. PLEASE if you are good at this stuff, make a suggestion for what this might be... I'm freaking out. and Yes, I have an appointment but its only to the health department. Poor people die I guess.
