Frontal & maxillary pressure, headache, tired eyes,scratchy throat, and post nasal drip. Lymph node size of pea under R jaw. Can this cause node swell?

Probably : It sounds like you have inflammation in your sinuses and nasal passages. Perhaps allergies or possibly infection. Either could cause a prominent lymph node. I would recommend stomatic treatment with a non sedating antihistamine and a nasal steroid. Both are available over the counter. Ask your pharmacist. If symptoms persist for more than 2 weeks or worsen see your doctor. ...Read more

I rode bike for 23 miles yesterday and now my eyes are scratchy. What might be the cause and what can I do about it?

Sun, dry or allergy: First congrats on such an endeavor! several causes of 'scratchy eyes' are possible: sun exposure may have caused slight 'corneal burn' or dry eyes from wind exposure. Allergy conditions may also cause the symptom. Over-the-counter (otc) claritin, (loratadine) allegra, or zyrtec may help. If persistent please see your doctor or ophthomologist. ...Read more
