How do you stop an upset stomach from ketones when you flushed all them out. My blood sugar is 210 it came down from 500+ and on top of this I have an ear infection.

Can bronchitis or an ear infection cause neck and back/shoulder pain? It seems to have just started, I've been sick for a week.
Yes.: Any infection can cause the tonsils and adenoid tissue to enlarge. This should resolve in the next few weeks but could take several months for the tonsils to return to normal size.

Jaw hurting and feeling locked are signs of tmd. I'd see a dentist. ...Read more
