Strep test negative. 4 plus weeks of sore throat when swallowing on right side. Severe throat pain when sneezing. No congestion or ear pain. ?

Nopostnasal drip?: This could cause 1 sided throat pain. If not, see an ENT Dr. and get scoped in the nose to see the back of the throat. They should be able to diagnose your problems. If you do have postnasal drip,try flonase or rhinocort nasal spray and see if this helps. ...Read more

But i feared meningitis or any mental disorders ?

Cold and flu: Not a meningitis - if it were, it would be very unlikely that you would be asking about symptoms 3 days into the illness online. If you are still troubled by symptoms then visit your doctor. Evaluation for sinusitis would seem appropriate. ...Read more

Could i be experiencing allergies in winter season ? I feel ill no fever ! upset stomach, sinus congestion, sore throat, ear pain/pressure. Low appeti

Yes: You may be allergic to indoor allergens which include house dust mites, molds, pet etc. However upset stomach occurs only rarely mostly from profuse post-nasal drips. If your house has a humidifier in the furnace or anywhere, be sure to check for molds in the water compartment. You need to consult your doctor as well since there are many other answers. ...Read more

Sinus probs for full week w/fever,ear pain,congestion,cough.No fever now lightheaded,Cant catch a decent breath,Chest very heavy,no fever just cough?

Shortness of breath: These symptoms should be investigated formally by a doc. I hate to think of it, but sometimes after a viral infection, a bacterial infection can settle in as a one-two punch. Good you don't have fever, but maybe you're suppressing it with motrin/tylenol? I think you need a chest X-ray to make sure your lungs are OK. Hope you get some help there. ...Read more
