Need another scope: People with barrett's need to be watched closely with a regularly scheduled scopes at least every two years. Regardless of the sore throat you should get in to be scoped again. Start the the physician that scoped you five years ago.

Possible infection: Swollen glands are almost always a sign of infection. Fatigue, appetite loss, and headache are all non-specific symptoms that can also be related to infection. This should be evaluated by a physician.

Watery eyes: Sounds like you have a viral illness. Take an over-the-counter decongestant and see if this helps. A saline nasal spray is also helpful. Drink plenty of fluids and get some rest. If you are still having problems after 7 days, call your primary doctor.

See your doctor: These extra symptoms are just more severe migraines. Migraines are the body's warning system. Something is stressing you that is making your migraines more complex. You may have infection, allergic reaction, toxic reaction to food or drug, or some emotional crisis. You need a good medical checkup.

My 2 yr daughter has hand, foot and mouth disease for last 4 days. The ulcers / blisters in mouth make it difficult for her to drink and eat.. What medication will be most suitable?

Numb the mouth: Anything that will decrease the pain in the mouth will help her drink. Ice cold foods act as a local anesthesia as they numb the area. Try popsicles, ice cream, jello, as well as pedialyte popsicles that will keep her hydrated. Also oragel will help. As it is a viral disease, there is no antibiotics that will help it. It will go away on its own.
