URI VS. Allergies: It sound like you have either a viral illness causing symptoms of upper respiratory illness OR a sever allergic reaction to the pollen. Treatment is Symptomatic. Irrigate your nostrils with Nasal Saline several times a day. Use nasal steroids to decrease inflammation of nasal lining. Use OTC day & night formula. See PCP in 24-48 hrs if not improved.

Congested nose, sore throat with burning sensation. Been having it for about 2 days now. When will it subside? What can I do at home to help?

Congested nose, sore throat with burning sensation. Been having it for about 2 days now. When will it subside? What can I do at home to help?

You have a cold: The zinc in coldeze may shorten the duration of a cold by a day or so. Symptomatic treatment will make you feel better. Throat lozenges for sore throat, pseudephedrine for nasal congestion, Robitussin-DM for cough and tylenol (acetaminophen) for pain and discomfort when needed are what I recommend. There is no curative medical treatment but wait 7 days and it will be gone.

Cold or allergy: Your symptoms can either be related to a viral infection or to nasal allergies, both can irritate your nasal passages and make your nose sensitive. Use a saline nasal spray to soothe it, it should help you until you get your symptoms checked with your doctor.

Possibly: Only way to truly know if you have strep is get your throat swabbed and cultured by physician or nurse. Can go to primary care or urgent care. Could be viral sore throat (pharyngitis) which is more common than strep. Rest, drink lots and gargle with salt water. Ibuprofen or acetaminophen for pain.

Virus: Most likely you have a virus. We can order a strep test if the sore throat is very severe. Drink plenty of fluids, drink bone broth/chicken soup, get plenty of rest. Consult with us if you do not get better with this or if you have a fever.

Infection: It sounds like you have an upper respiratory tract infection of some sort. The only way to be properly diagnosed is to be seen in person. You may have a virus which is best treated supportively with over the counter cold medicine. It is possible you have a bacterial infection for which you need antibiotics. Reasons to see a doctor are persistent fever, worsening symptoms or shortness or breath

Go to emergency room: If the symptoms are all on one side of your head/neck, ask them to evaluate you for a carotid dissection. It's an injury to a blood vessel in the neck that can cause the symptoms you describe. They'll do imaging of the blood vessels. If they find a carotid dissection, they'll start a medicine to thin your blood while the injury heals. If you have any questions, I'm available for a virtual consult.

Careful, Hi-cost for: Low value; study: https://www. Healthtap. Com/#user_questions/6631441. While only you can feel all your symptoms, jumping to conclusions of what they mean (though common) is definitely neither wisdom nor effective for improving your quality of life & long term outcomes. Far better: study anatomy/physiology on the net, seek assistance worthy of your trust, study your test data to help sort out issues

Shoulder blade pain, clicking sore feeling for a yr. Burning sensation back of head and neck, what could this be?

Many possibilities: There are many possibilites. A pinched nerve can certainly cause neck pain, headaches, and pain that runs into the shoulder. Usually a detailed history, exam, and appropriate tests can establish the diagnosis. Thank you for your question.

Got an bone hard lump on left backside of head above the occipital bone with burning sensation there and on my neck and shoulders. Any ideas?

Got an bone hard lump on left backside of head above the occipital bone with burning sensation there and on my neck and shoulders. Any ideas?

Superior trapezius: The unifying symptom you describe is the broad region of discomfort. This muscle runs throughout the region you describe. Perhaps is spasm in this muscle with tendonitis where it connects to the occipital skull. Your signs and symptoms are odd, and you should see an osteopath to sort this out.

Burning sensation on lower back of head down my neck to the middle of shoulder blades?

Anti-inflammatory: Neck pain usually comes from a degenerative joint or disc in the neck. Sometimes it's from a muscle strain or sprain. It is common for neck pain to refer to the head as well as shoulder blade. Early treatment options include a short course of nsaids (advil, aleve), gentle massage, moist heat, and focusing on posture. If pain lasts greater than 2 weeks see your physician.
