Allergies/asthma: The symptoms you describe sound like they might be caused by allergies to something in your indoor or outdoor environment (pollens, dust, grass, pet fur/dander, etc).

Sore throat,lethargy, x3 days. ok to breathe/swallow,neg strep & xray, fast pulse. ER gave steroids & motrin for visible epiglottis. Should i worry?

See your PCP. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Cold: It can be a simple cold, but it sounds like it's time for an examination. There is a possibility of an ear infection, but these symptoms can also result from a simple virus infection.
