Avatar m tn which connect the middle ear to the throat, this balances the air pressure in the ears. This tube can get blocked due to infections of the throat, which can give lead to a feeling of fullness in the ears and the resultant sounds. This can also result in infection of the ears. Consult your primary care physician who will do blood tests and take a throat swab to determine the cause and prescribe appropriate medications.
Avatar n tn ll comment that I had a similar problem at one point, it was caused by severe allergies (I had no other allergy symptoms though, just the sore throat) so you may want to post on the allergy forum as well.

Avatar f tn Hi, your symptoms could be due to a post nasal drip, which can cause a chronic irritation in the throat. This could be due to a sinus infection, a cold or a chronic allergy. It could be sinusitis, if it is accompanied by nasal stuffiness and facial pain or pressure. Post nasal drip could also be due to allergens. These are substances like pollen, dust, animal dander, certain foods, insect venoms and certain medications.
Avatar m tn After about a month without it clearing up, I went to an ear, nose, and throat doctor. He gave me an allergy test and scanned my throat. He said I was allergic to everything. Most on the sheet were rated about a 3 whatever that number means. There was one that was rated a 7 which was some kind of mold. This is what I suspected caused my problems. His solution was to come in once a week for a shot in each arm for 3 months costing me for each visit.

Avatar f tn The symptoms described could be due to a throat 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. For the cough (dry) antitussives with Dextromethorphan based syrups like Triaminic may help.

Avatar m tn First I had an ear infection then I had this feeling as if something is stuck in my throat. I went to the Doctor and was given Amoxcillin. The ear infection is gone but the feeling as if dust or hair is in the back of my throat (upper left, in the back, just behind the uvula is what it feels like). It's getting on my nerves. It doesn't hurt at all, but the feeling is driving me crazy sometime I start panicking.

2072659 tn?1340597373 Looks like you have developed a nasal allergy which has progressed to a throat infection as well. There are tubes called 'Eustachian tubes' which connect the middle ear to the throat, this balances the air pressure in the ears. This tube can get blocked due to infections of the throat, which can give lead to a feeling of fullness in the ears and the resultant sounds. This can also result in infection of the ears.
Avatar n tn Your sore throat is likely due to postnasal drip from your nose and sinuses, often worse while lying down, which could be either due to allergy or infection. The infection could be from a bacterium, such as Strep or a virus, such as the one that causes the common cold. Unless you are having fever of 101 Fahrenheit or greater, fatigue, loss of appetite etc. this is probably due to a virus and should resolve spontaneously in 7 to 10 days; an antibiotic would be of no benefit.
Avatar f tn She was diagnosed with ear infection and throat infection so they wanted to give her IV Rocephin, within minutes the whelps or rash was back, so now she seems to have an allergy to azythromycin and Rocephin. My question is what class of drugs are these apart of and which ones should she stay away from? The doctor really did not tell us much due to the language barrier we were faced with. We were in Puerto Rico at the time of incident, still are.
Avatar f tn Hence, possibility of infection cannot be neglected which may be due to bugs. Few bugs are known to transmit the disease like chagas disease but seem to be unlikely. I would suggest you to undergo investigations like complete blood count, absolute eosinophil count and ear examination. I suggest you to consult ENT specialist. Take care and regards.

Avatar n tn What you have experienced could be a simple matter of excessive mucus and accumulation of mucus in your throat due to nasal or throat infection. That would account for the sensation being intermittent. On the other hand, “difficulty in breathing” should be carefully evaluated to be sure that you do not have a lung problem.
