I feel like I have some kind of inflammation in my rib cage (particularly on my left side). What could cause it and what treatment is available?

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. One must be sure to tell the doctor if any oral sex activities. ...Read more

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
