Probably allergy: Nahsea and vomiting can be from a virus you may have picked up during less than ideal hygienic condition surrounding food and beverages consumed whike traveling. OTC meds may suffice for now but if you experience fever and diarrhea, or a rash appears, pl. Consult a physician for proper diagnosis and treatment needed. Read more

Cough (Definition)

The cough reflex is a protective mechanism that uses muscles in your throat and chest to expel mucous and saliva that may contain pathogens that would otherwise possibly be inhaled via aerosol or to expel pathogens infecting the throat and respiratory system.

Seasonal flu: Is very common viral infection. Usually the condition resolves on its own with home care. Drink water and get a good rest. NSAIDs (e.g. Aleve, Advil) or Tylenol (acetaminophen) are also recommended every 6 hours. If concerned, see your PCP for examination. Read more

For 5 days I have had body aches, nausea, a dry cough, painful chest, headache and a fever. Is the the flu? When will I feel better?

Flu-like illness: Whether or not this is actually influenza is impossible to say with the into you give on the internet. What is possible is that this is a viral illness and you should begin to feel better within the next 2 days. If you do not would strongly suggest that you see your family doctor. Hope you are better soon. Read more

Viral: It is most likely a viral infection and one can only treat the symptoms. If the symptoms are severe, you will need to see your doctor to get some cough suppression. Tylenol may help the body ache, nasal decongestant spray may be used for up to 5 days maximum. It usually takes 7-10 days to recover. Read more

I: I think it is awesome that you care so much about your brother. I can tell you that are really worried. Unfortunately, this type of email forum isn't for diagnosing medical conditions. It is more for people to ask medical guestions and the doctors provide medical information. I know that it is has to be frustrating not to know the cause of his cough and headaches but the doctors who talk to him, examine him and see his test results are in the best position to try to develop a accurate diagnosis. Keep be a super big sister. Take care. Read more

Dry cough from last 1month. Photophobia and headache some time. Medication plz.?

DIagnosis needed!: Before medication. Too many unknowns here that needs to be worked up by a PCP, who can evaluate what is going on, and do the necessary blood work. S/he will have to look why you are having photophobia (not normal), dry cough, and headache can be from the photophobia. You may need an eye doctor consult to evaluate this further! Definitely need to be seen by a doctor, who can put it all together! Read more

Suffering from frequent stiff neck. Plus headache and dry cough (both occurred just now). My head hurts when I cough too. Help?

Comments: Would suggest you likely have either an upper respiratory tract infection or asthma, and this could readily be controlled. The cough probably exacerbates the neck which triggers the headaches. All of this could readily be addressed by your regular doctor. Read more

Some suggestions: Your illness may be a viral infection, but if there is a high fever, localized pain, worsening or persistent symptoms, a follow up visit should be done. Typically a viral illness will resolve within 10 days. Nasal saline, tylenol (acetaminophen) for fever, fluids and rest are advised. Read more

Dry cough leads to nausea and vomiting lasts for atleast 2 months. Has happened this time of year for last 3year years.?

Allergy? ...: This could be due to an allergic reaction resulting in bronchospasm which in turn causes the severe cough. If your family doctor can't find the source of this reaction, perhaps you should see an allergist for allergy testing. In the meantime, the cough can be treated with bronchodilator and steroid inhalers that your doctor can prescribe. Read more

I have a very strong and sharp pain on my right shoulder blades and a dry cough and pain on my troat some nausea comes along a times may you help me?

See a doctor: More history and a good exam are necessary. Would need to know if this is musculoskeletal and you have separate cause for the sore throat and the cough. Do you have fever, to what have you been exposed? Sounds like you might have a flu-like illness, but could be a lot of other things. Read more
