See an allergist: Vasomotor rhinitis doesn't affect vision, but some of the medications used to treat it might. Your eyesight is nothing to play around with - you need to get this checked out. If you're taking meds for it, see the person who prescribed it; if it's not under control, see an allergist. If you deal with the vasomotor rhinitis and the vision problems persist, see an ophthalmologist. ...Read more

I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia 1 year ago.I tookeffexor 75 &lyrica (pregabalin) 75 one pill a day& i felt better.Now i stopped takin lyrica (pregabalin) but I am feelin pain?
Get back on Lyrica (pregabalin).: Lyrica (pregabalin) has been shown to be effective in treating fibromyalgia pain, but usual doses are 150 mg. Three times a day. Effexor is not shown to be effective but may improve your mood. Usual doses are around 300 mg. A day. It is pretty certain that 75 mg of Effexor will not be helpful for fibromyalgia pain. You must continue to take the Lyrica (pregabalin) to get benefit. ...Read more

See ENT doctor: I don't know what it is, but it sounds irritating. See an ear nose throat specialist if you have not done so already. If they find nothing, it could be psychological.

Medications without talk therapy are not going to be as helpful good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Furthermore, amoxacillin may not destroy as much as 50% of NTHI (a bacteria very commonly causing bacterial tonsillitis. In summary, unless you know the cause of the discomfort is, Rx's a guess ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
