Cold sensitivity: There are several possibilities, however being more sensitive to the cold temperatures and swelling in the neck suggests the possibility of a thyroid illness causing a condition of low thyroid production called hypothyroidism with an enlargement of the thyroid called goiter. It is imperative that you obtain medical consultation and examination to determine the true cause of your problems.

This cannot wait: Symptoms of headache and dizziness accompanied by rising blood pressure and swelling can be associated with preeclampsia. That can be a problem for the pregnant woman and her baby, especially if preterm. Calling an OB doctor is what is recommended even at night, especially if the local nursery cannot provide care for a premature baby in case delivery is needed. If alone or cannot reach OB call 911.

A 42-year-old member asked:
I'm sick and I have a fever, sore throat , barking cough, and a head ache. Will OTC meds work for this?

Depends...: If the fever is low-grade, then you probably have a virus which will run its course in a few days to week. In that case, symptom control is the treatment and some otc meds can help. On the other hand, if your fever is higher, you likely have a bacterial infection which will respond to antibiotics. See your doctor for specific diagnosis and treatment.

Felt acid reflux symptom when burping yesterday, got a sore throat, but today left nostril is clogged and clear mucus discharge, is this just a cold?

Probably: Acid reflux could certainly cause some sore throat symptoms, but it'd be less likely to cause nasal congestion and runny nose symptoms. I think you may be right that you're getting a cold. (time will tell!).

A 47-year-old member asked:
Sore throat , swollen lymph nodes , mouth ulcers . Are they signs of hiv?

Might be: Acute HIV syndromes can have several presentations, including looking like meningitis, but the most common is like infectious mononucleosis, with fever, swollen lymph nodes, malaise. If you are asking how HIV can present after you have had it many years asymptomatically, that is a subject for a large volume of information. If you are concerned, please get tested. Early treatment is best.
