Treatment for a swollen uvula symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Treatment for a swollen uvula symptoms


Avatar m tn Hey there, My uvula has been swollen for some months and I have been to a doctor a few times with little success. The first thought my doctor had was bacterial infection so antibiotics were prescribed. Those did not work so steroids were the next choice. Again, no change. I was advised to take Claritin-D for a few weeks to see if that would reduce swelling in my sinuses and help my uvula calm down. That has not helped either.
1806721 tn?1510192923 Hi, I woke up at 1am Saturday morning with a suddenly very swollen uvula, which makes swallowing difficult. My throat has been extremely painful since then for 4 days, the pain gets quite sharp and radiates to my nose, right ear, and now to the sinuses around my eyes and forehead.
312330 tn?1245180352 the problem I'm having since then has been with my throat....somehow during the intubation my uvula took a hit and is quite swollen and bruised at the typical is this? and about how long does it take to heal? It's not having an adverse effect on my breathing....but it does cause a gagging sensation and makes swallowing/eating difficult.
Avatar f tn So I had chlamydia about a month ago, approximately, and my tonsils were very swollen, so when I got treated for the chlamydia they prescribed me azithromycin, so I took the medication and within a week my symptoms were going away one by one by my tonsils still are very swollen to this day and they don't seem to be going down, ive always had generally large tonsils but never this large. My tonsils have these little holes in them and sometimes the holes with have puss in them.
Avatar n tn I have lost over 17 pounds ( ok not such a bad thing, but not for a good reason), my back of my throat is swollen as well as my voice box, which are swollen quite badly. I cough to the extreme as to try and clear my throat.. to the point where I vomit, and my head feels like it is going to explode. I have had a Upper GI done and it came back no problems.. I think they need to do more tests and I am going to make sure they do................Oh and with this..
Avatar n tn There is no cure, only treatment for symptoms. I know this is probably not good news for anyone who identifies with what I've just described, but, unfortunately, it's reality, at least for me. If you do a Google search on "idiopathic anaphylaxis," you can read all about it.
Avatar n tn diagnoised with TMJ, using a special mouth rinse for my gums, now I am on my way to see a TMJ specialist for a mouth peiece for the TMJ pressure that is apparent: clinching teeth; some bone shifting in that r jaw area from missing tooth from childhood; also going to see Rheumatolgist; to see if it's a tissue problem since I have degenerative disk disease in my R shoulder and c-4 & c-5 neck disks.

Avatar n tn After 5 days of treatment my tonsils and uvula are severely swollen with a some white specs on the tonsils. The pain has intensified on my right side. I can see the right side has a reddish swelling that starts from the puffy gum and proceeds up along the wall of my mouth near the back and appears to be pushing on my right tonsil. I also noticed it stems up towards the roof of my mouth a little. It hurts when touched and feels softer than the other side of my mouth.
Avatar n tn It is often caused by post-nasal drainage and the mucous you are producing may be thick and tenaceous giving you a tickling sensation. An elongated or swollen uvula with post-nasal drainage can also give you this feeling. Severe laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR) can give a foreign body/tickling sensation but this condition may present with other symptoms associated with it. It is best to consult an ENT specialist and get examined.
Avatar dr m tn You may realize that you are waking up sometimes, but the vast majority of arousals are subconscious. If this happens for a few nights in a row and you return to your normal sleep habits, you’re fine. But if it occurs continuously for months or years, then certain events can happen. Due to repetitive arousals, your body goes into almost a chronic state of low-grade stress.
Avatar m tn not very often • Painful to swallow • Can still eat, talk, sing, etc. with very minimal pain • Sort of swollen uvula • Sort of swollen tonsils • White thingies sort of in my tonsils...probably tonsil stones. I hope so. • Back wall of throat is pretty pink • Sneezing, only on occasion; it's July, maybe a summer cold? • White "furry" tongue • Clearing of throat I'm 21 years old and ♂ male. Maybe it was a few days ago, but I coughed up a very vile-smelling off-white glob of...stuff...
Avatar n tn I had unprotected sex with a girl of unknown sexual history three months ago, and now I have a very swollen neck lymph node ONLY on the right side. It has been swollen like that for those three months with no cold or flu symptoms. The salivary duct in my right cheek by the upper molars is inflamed. My uvula has undergone changes as well, feeling largely hollow but with a small spherical bump in the very end of it.
Avatar f tn However, I had also been told that you can have relapses for the rest of your life and it really can be a pain. For me, this happens a few times a year...around the season changes, it seems, or when I have been under a lot of pressure or stress. I've been tested for everything from lupus to thyroid problems, and many other conditions, only to have the EBV test the only one coming back positive. I don't want to be sick, but I would like to have a diagnosis, if that makes sense?
Avatar f tn But currently i have got this small single red spots on my skin,ie chest, arms, belly and back, a pink rash in my palms but not itchy... I had fever, and swollen uvula.... Even though i still have some months of testing.... Am scared.. Could dis be hiv?
Avatar f tn My uvula is red and inflamed but does not have any spots on it. I have been very sick with a fever, swollen glands and general flu-like symptoms including a productive cough. I do not have any lesions on my tongue, other areas of my mouth or lips. The spots in my throat have still not diminished. I consulted a GP who assured me I had a bacterial infection and prescribed antibiotics. These have made no difference.
Avatar n tn Like i said before I was tested for everything a week and a half ago (4 days post encounter) and hadn't been sexually active for 4 months prior. I may just be being paranoid, but wanted to hear your thoughts. Thanks for all the help. This is one of the few quality websites to come to, to get some facts.
Avatar m tn Syphilis testing is cheap, so feel free -- but syphilis also is not a possible explanation for your symptoms. If your symptoms persist or you otherwise remain concerned, work with your health care provider to figure out the cause and possible treatment. But you are just going to have to accept the truth and get past the obsession that you have an STD. You do not. No follow-up comments or discussion. I won't have any further opinions or advice.
2020005 tn?1476662562 I have been told since a young age they should come out, they're huge, I get constant sore throats, I snore awful, it's pretty clear they need to come out, just finally thinking about doing it. Anyone have theirs removed? I've had two c-sections, but I'm terrified of having them removed, lol!!
Avatar f tn I have had a sometimes severe sore throat for over a month. Had a scope put down my throat and the doctor says everything is growths, nodules, infection, etc. He suggested that maybe I had a virus and to come back in 6 weeks if the pain was still there and then he would repeat the procedure to see if there was a change. The pain does lessen sometimes but then comes back with a vengence. Mostly it is on the right side and, of course, the ears are also involved.
Avatar m tn Recently, ive been having a lot of health struggles for about almost 2 months. It started out with me lying in bed, in the beginning of June, I remember lying there and feeling a lump in my throat, like I could swallow. I rushed to the ER, they said it was my uvula and that it was swollen (it really wasn't) and sent me off with some medicine. I went to the ER 3 days after that, and they tested me and also claimed it was my "swollen uvula".
Avatar m tn I am a 21 year old male. A while back I discovered my right tonsil was red and swollen. About a year ago I went into an Urgent Healthcare Facility and a Doctor noticed it and said it was probably because I was a smoker and the smoke was irritating it. Ive been a smoker for about 4 years. I was in the same Urgent Care Facility yesterday to get checked out for a cough and I inquired about my tonsil.
Avatar m tn but have had diarrhea about 6 times in the last 3 months, white patch on my uvula for 5 days, 6 mild headaches swollen glands in my neck and groin for a day or so comes and goes. How long do HIV symptoms last? Are these related to my oral sex mistake? I heard the symptoms last only a few days . These have been ongoing . Will the symptoms last longer because I am also a drinker? I have paid again for a response because I value your opinion . Please please respond . Im just scared.
1890554 tn?1322681648 This morning I woke up with a swollen very swollen throat, palate and a inflamed dropped uvula. I was ready to go to ER but I had to take my son to school. I took another Celestamine NS a nothing seems to work!!!!! Can something else be wrong. I do have Chiari Malformation but I’ve had it forever (dx 24yrs.) and nothing like this had happen due to chiari. I know it is allergies because I sneeze a lot!!!! funny but my asthma is fine!!!
Avatar m tn It can help clear the sinuses so that a bacterial or viral infection won’t set into the accumulated mucus. The best treatment for allergic rhinitis (a runny nose) is 10 milligrams of montelukast sodium (Singulair), which is available by prescription, or 240 milligram of pseudoephedrine hydrochloride (Sudafed). According to a study by the University of Chicago, the two drugs are equally effective, even though the prescription drug costs 4 times as much.
Avatar n tn P i hoe you can answer my question i no you perhaps dont no a lot about my symptoms helpfully you have some idea thank-you for some of your time to listen to what is have got to say x *in the back of your throat you have that little dangaley thing well at the side of that down a bit you have 2 ball thing each side well on the right side i feel with my finger a lump thing coming off it i am not sure if that is normal or i an just over reacting and since i have found it i can feel that it is ther
Avatar m tn The spasm cough causes it all and when it goes away (usually 4 to 5 days) things are relatively normal although a normal cough stays with me for weeks after. I notice if I catch it early (which means I carry antibiotics with me all the time) it is not as nearly as bad. Doctors have diagnosed this as Asthma, chronic bronchitis, bronchial asthma etc etc. All different specialists seem to have a different prognosis and the recommended pills over the years have not really done any good.
Avatar m tn I am scared to be tested. I feel a bit better but have had symptoms for 2 and a half months now. The symptoms. 10 or so pimple like lesions on both sides of trunk of my body. Five on each side When squeezed a small amount of pus does come out of a few. I also have one on the back of my leg that is at least 1/2 " . All are slowly disappearing but after a long 2 months. I have had a pain in my chest under my breast plate for about 5 weeks. Comes and goes.
