Spider bite 4 weeks ago still sore hot pains up and down body stabbing ankles wrists tingling tired aching head feels tight throat swollen ankles too?
Is a spider bite?: It may not have been a spider bite. There have been many cases of skin infections caused by Methicillin Resistant Staph Aureus (MRSA). The lesion is typically described as a spider bite. What happens is this organism penetrates the skin via hair follicle and makes its way into the body. It can evade the immune system, but it can also attack with vigor. Get a blood test!

My throat has felt very swollen and very tight however is is not sore. It has been like this consistently for a week. Could it be strep?
Possibly: Strep is a bacterial infection often associated with tonsillitis. There is generally a sore throat red papules on the tongue and white plaques on the tonsil or back of throat normally a fever is present. A simple visit to a clinic would reveal if its strep with a swab. Strep needs antibiotics. This may be a simple post nasal drip in early allergy season but if you start to feel ill get tested.

Possibly: If you have you have pain due to a wisdom tooth and now have swollen glands and your throat is tight - you could have an abscess with germs that are spreading. If that is the case -would recommend medical and dental follow up asap. This can be very serious. On the other hand, the wisdom tooth and the tight throat and swollen glands may be a separate issue.
Not much: Tight throat should not be present. If you have a tight throat you need to contact your surgeon as this may be an allergic reaction to medication. Swollen glands may since you had surgery and drainage from your face will track down to your glands. It should be temporary and if not see your surgeon.

I am 24 year old female my throat is very tight for the last 2 weeks along with shortness of breath? And swollen glands.
See a doctor ASAP: There are some illnesses that require immediate attention, and tightness in the throat and shortness of breath are both on the list, because if you can't breathe or your airway is blocked it is lethal. Since you have had this for 2 wks, your airway is obviously still ok, but that can change quickly. Go to an urgent care or ER if you can't get in to your regular doctor right away.See 1 more doctor answer

Swollen lips, wheeze, cough, tightness in throat, tightness in chest are all present during my kids month on tobi (tobramycin). I wear n95 1 hr & hepabut still sx.
Talk to your doctor: Much of the dose of tobi (tobramycin) goes into the air rather than directly into the child, especially when given with a mask rather than mouthpiece. It sounds like you are having a reaction to it. Talk to your child's doctor who has prescribed the tobi (tobramycin). It may be necessary to switch to a different inhaled antibiotic for your child rather than tobi (tobramycin).See 3 more doctor answers
