Pleuritis/chondritis: Sounds like pleurisy which is an inflammation on the lining of your lungs. Actually quite common and caused by various infections or inflammation triggers. Typically antiinflammatories (aspirin, naproxen, etc) that are over the counter are helpful. In some people it can be more serious so if it is persistent or not helped by over the counter pain relievers, seek help. ...Read more

My left side of throat hurts and the pain is spreading to head. Diagnosed with throat inflammation. Please advise if I need to do further tests.?

Dr. Can re-check: Throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from other causes such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly. A rapid test swab can detect strep in 5 minutes.

I have active inflammation below jaw on left side. Below the eye and three lumps between. These are midly painful. Have fever 100 degree F. For last t?

Infection: It sounds like you have some type of infection that needs to be addressed today. Without seeing a picture of the lumps hard to say for sure but you could have a cellulitis which is usually bacterial, possibly a shingles outbreak if they are more like blisters, an infected tooth or even a parotid gland. All of these require intervention as soon as possible to prevent more serious consequences. ...Read more

Pinched nerve in the spine can cause temp face paralysis Bell Palsy? Started sleeping on right side and started moving left face. Inflammation? Chiro?

Facial nerve: bells palsy is caused by compression or inflammation of the facial nerve. The nerve starts in the brain stem and exists skull away from the spine. In my opinion a cervical spine problem would be an unusual cause of Bell's palsy. Don't think cervical manipulation with a chiropractor would be very beneficial for this condition. ...Read more

What is causing numbness on the right side of the face and inflammation and pain on of left side of neck with raised jugular veins? Also have PVCs

May not be related: Numbness to the face is supplied by cranial nerves that exit the brain directly into the face while PVCs are a cardiac condition which can be a sign an arrhythmia.

Right side of my body is inflammed. I have tight shoulder, tight lower back, stiff neck just on the right side, tight thighs, etc. What's wrong?

Hard to say: It really hard to say based upon info. For example, what does it mean to say right side of body is inflamed? There are simple things, such as a viral respiratory infection that can be associated with aches in the muscles and joints. There are more serious conditions, such as meningitis, that can cause similar complaints and is life threatening. You should probably be checked. Thank you. ...Read more
