Sir 4days before I feel discomfrt in throat thn cold syptoms, bt now feels better but yesterday I feel my right ear blocked or fluid fill. How to cure? Plz answere

Common side effect: You probably have an 'effusion' - fluid builds up in the ear because the eustachian tube at the back of your nose swells up with a cold - makes the ear feel blocked. It should respond to a simple treatment: Over the counter Afrin nasal spray, two puffs in right nostril twice daily for three days. Do NOT use Afrin more than 3 days. If not better within 2 weeks, see your regular doctor. ...Read more

I have a fever of 103.7...I went out earlier and started feeling drainage in my throat...then my ear filled up with fluid and started poping.?

High fever: The fever is somewhat high. If not breaking or responding to Tylenol (acetaminophen) or nsaids, then may be worth getting an urgent evaluation. To address your question: inflammation in the throat constricts eustachian tube mediated drainage of the inner ear. Dynamic changes in inflammation as well as positional changes of head/neck causes intermittent drainage/blockage of the middle ear compartment. ...Read more

Burning pain under chin, ears constantly full of fluid. Started as throat discomfort about a year ago. Doc can't feel anything wrong with throat. Help?

Ears with fluid?: Are the fluid filled ears per your physician? Does this imply you have a chronic otitis media? I would recommend being seen by ENT for a more definitive diagnosis. Something doesn't seem quite right. Not sure about burning pain under the chin except to say perhaps some blood work for B12, folate, or vitamin D may relieve some correctable deficiencies. All the best. ...Read more

Ear Pain: Pain followed by muffled sounds is from an infection followed by mucus fluid in the ear. Try a vasoconstictive nose drops to the effected side, but the drops need to go to the opening to the middle ear. Pretend the drops are going into the ear and dropping to the floor.

Constantly clearing my throat, feel like lump & spasms to throat, fluid in ears, difficulty breathing. Dr thinks allergies\rads. I think silent reflux.

Silent Reflux: You described your symptoms beautifully and these are exactly the symptoms patients complain of when they suffer with larygopharyngeal reflux, also known as silent reflux. Part of the exam that you need is a laryngeal exam, either with a mirror or a flexible scope. This should provide the "missing link" that should lead to the correct diagnosis and treatment. Your description is spot on. ...Read more

I was just diagnosed with a severe sinus infection with fluid in the ears and cobblestoning in the throat. What does this mean. I also have a fever.

Viral vs. Bacterial: If a specialist has made this diagnosis, it could be a viral infection (flu) or upper respiratory allergy. Severe sinus infection could also mean a bacterial infection. What it means is that you either have the flu, which is almost epidemic now or you have an acute allergic disease. Sinus x-rays document the diagnosis of sinusitis. Middle ear fluid can be treated with steroids or surgery. ...Read more
