Past 2 days I have a sinus headache, congestion, drainage, and ear " fullness". I have glaucoma, and r/eye is very red, puffy and draining. I am a 100% s/c vet, should I visit emergency ?

Sinus and Glaucoma: You didn't say whether you have open or closed angle glaucoma. If you took certain meds to relieve your sinus symptoms, they can increase the pressure in your eye, given your glaucoma. Nevertheless, with your history, i would not take lightly your unilateral eye symptoms, even though acute sinus problems can cause eye puffiness and drainage. To be on the safe side, i would check it out. ...Read more

I've been having a lot of sinus drainage and i've never had a swollen lymph node behind my ear from what i know. Can this cause this to happen?

I've been having a lot of sinus drainage and i've never had a swollen lymph node behind my ear from what i know. Can this cause this to happen?

Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells and digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph for anything bad like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well. ...Read more

Doubtful: New-onset allergies in a male in the mid-thirties is not terribly common, although it can occur. Viral infections do last longer these days than they did 20 years ago, but other things can be causing the discomfort with swallowing. If these symptoms aren't going away, you should be evaluated by your physician. ...Read more
