Im running a fever and hurting in my chest and throat any suggestions?

Some possibilities: Fever plus sore throat usually mean a viral infection (a cold or the flu) or a strep throat infection (bacteria that need an antibiotic to treat). Hurting in the chest can be more serious, because there could be a chest infection like bronchitis or pneumonia. Of course, chest pain unrelated to the fever must be checked by a doctor to be sure it is not heart pain (which would be bad). See a doctor. ...Read more

Infection: You have an illness...Probably viral (because most illnesses are). Strep throat can also produce those symptoms. It is always a good choice to be seen when you feel so awful...If ears hurt too it could be an ear infection and having treatment choices is very helpful. Make an appointment to be seen. ...Read more

My throat hurts and chest aches alittle no fever. Going on 10 days ! when should I see doctor?

Soon: Chronic symptoms that don't resolve in 1-2 weeks always suggest something that needs to be dealt with. If it wasn't bothering you too much, waiting to see if viral symptoms went away made sense, but after this amount of time, you have to suspect something like strep throat might be at work. See your doc. ...Read more

Teen had bad headache all day (thu) at school, then fever, vomited today (sat), now his chest hurts and neck hurts (no sore throat, cough, etc)?

Influenza?: Sounds a lot like the flu. If his neck is stiff, (ie has trouble touching his chin to his chest without pain), he needs to be seen in the er immediately. If he has a rash or has been exposed to ticks, he needs to be seen. If he has friends or family who have been sick & he has none of the above danger signs, you could try some tylenol (acetaminophen) or advil, clear liquids and wait. ...Read more

Need more info: From what & how you describe it, it is likely a respiratory tract infection. This can be viral or bacterial (or fungal sometimes), and can be of the larger airways (bronchitis) or lower airways (pneumonia). You should seek medical evaluation if symptoms have been present for more than 2-3 days, or are worsening. ...Read more

I have a sore throat, cough that hurts my chest. And i seen ONE yellow spot on my right tonsil. No fever that ive noticed. Could it be strep?

Hard to guess: Throat pain can be from strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees a doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to see about antibiotics). Lots of coughing makes it less likely to be strep throat. Doctor can evaluate. ...Read more

Chest congestion and fatigue. Head and chest hurt when i cough. Productive cough, don't know mucous color. No fever of mention or sore throat.

Acute bronchitis: If symptoms are acute, most certainly viral. Stay hydrated. Things should improve. If things get worse (high fevers, chest pain, difficulty breathing) see doc soon. If other underlying illness, err on the safe side and call your doc to let him know. Better safe than sorry. ...Read more

I have a fever 100.2 , ear ache and sore throat . My chest hurts when I breath like a burning feeling or soreness . Is this a cold or something else?

Febrile illness: This sounds as if you should go to see a doctor ASAP, either in an ER or an Urgent Care facility. Although this may be a viral illness, the chest burning is concerning and it would be advisable to be examined and perhaps have a chest x-ray and perhaps some labs depending upon what the doctor examining you finds. Good luck and best wishes. ...Read more

My daughter is 6 and she is running a fever of 102.5 and her throat  hurts really bad , and a headache, what should i do and what could it be?

See her doctor.: These are classic symptoms for a strep throat, but they also could be from an infection with a virus. The only way to tell is for her to be examined by her doctor and tested with a throat swab. They may be able to get the results within a few minutes and then if the test is positive, will treat her with an antibiotic. Sometimes, it is too early and a swab will be sent for an overnight culture. ...Read more
