Time to see your Dr: I'm trying to follow what you are saying, but one thing is clear. Something is not right. Many of the symptoms you describe may occur from hormonal or vitamin issues, but they also could be signs of a more serious problem. Ask to be scheduled for a comprehensive physical and some lab work. Good luck.

?Hypothyroidism: The symptoms you described could very well be from hypothyroidism, which is usually easily treated. But, you really need to to see your doctor as soon as possible.

Is it a thyroid: I had a similar problem. This is potentially a serious condition that requires evaluation. The thyroid gland is in the front of the neck and can be enlarged when not working. This can press on nerves causing pain. Symptoms of underactive thyroid include, fatigue, hair loss, weight gain, feeling cold. Treatment is usually straight forward after appropriate evaluation by internist.

Many possibilities: You cold have a simple viral infection. You could have a sifnificant bacterial infection, you could have a rare fungal infection. Generally the lymph nodes in the neck will swell with viral and bacterial infections. You describe a classic viral infection. Strep throat is not usually associated with runny nose. If there is fever, difficulty swallowing or you believe you are too ill, see pcp.

Breathe...: First; try to expel the water; as long as you have no difficulty breathing you should be fine. You may want to drink a cup of warm/hot tea with some honey in it; or a lozenge to soothe your throat...But other than that you should be fine. If there is any doubt in your mind that you are not well then by all means call your doctor and get checked out, or visit your local emergency room.

My 11 month old son was diagnosed with an ear infection 2 days ago and was prescribed amoxicilin today I notice a rash on his face is this an allergic reaction?

Possibly: Amoxicillin is a great for an ear infection. Yet, some people have allergies to penicillin. However, what makes this hard to answer is sometimes agents that cause ear infections can cause a rash too! if it is only a light red rash and he has no other signs of something bothering him, you can watch to see if it goes away.But if any sores are in his mouth or a high fever he must be seen right away.

A 29-year-old female asked:

Im being tested for overactive thyroid. The doctor put me on clonazepam and citalopram in the mean time for severe anxiety/panic attacks. Is severe weeakness a symptom of the thyroid or the meds?

Hard to say: Without knowing your thyroid test results, this is very hard to say. If the weakness onset was right after starting the medications, that may be the cause. If you have sever hyperthyroidism ( TSH is very low and your free thyroxine, t4, is very high), then your thyroid could be contributing. An evaluation by your doctor shoudl be able to tell the difference, or find another explanation.
