What causes someone to feel like they have a fever but the temp is normal and skin is clammy feeling?  Have Sinus inf. wheezing and coughing

Part of it...: All those symptoms are associated with an apparent infection you are dealing with. You don't necessarily have to get a fever but just a sensation of malaise, chills and warmth even when temp. Is normal. If you have not been seen I suggest you do so in order to get diagnosed and treated. If already seen follow up recommendations, rest and drink plenty of fluids to avoid dehydration. ...Read more

My sinus openings in my throat are sore, my skin hurts, i feel clammy, and my nose is stuffy, what otc medicine should I take?

Sinus/allergy issues: For nasal congestion, take Flonase or Nasacort, (triamcinolone) which are OTC nasal steroids. Pair the nasal spray with an antihistamine such as Claritin, Zyrtec or Allegra. Both working together should decrease drainage into the throat as well as sore throat. If feverish, producing yellow-green mucus & generally feeling sick, you may need an antibiotic, which you should see your doc for further evaluation. ...Read more

I am having very severe migraines, sensitiveity to light, sounds, scents, even vomiting, clammy damp skin. Medicine isn't working. What should I do?

Botox: You may want to consider having your doctor/headache specialist see if Botox can be approved for your migraine headaches. If it works you could have significantly less migraines for at least 3-4 months at a time. Many times people's migraines are cut in half if not more. The use of your oral migraine prevention medications and abortives are much more helpful and reduce occurrences even better. ...Read more

Yes: Most pneumonias are caused by viruses and they will be self limited meaning they will get better over time as your own immune system kicks in. Even bacterial pneumonias may get better without treatment, but will often respond more quickly with treatment with an appropriate antibiotic. ...Read more

Fever: Sounds like you developed a fever, and my next instruction to you would be to take your temperature.You describe almost perfectly the sequence of symptoms when your temperature rises quickly. Fever is just a symptom, as are things like cough, runny nose, etc. Drink lots of fluids, get rest and if new or concerning symptoms develop or fever is high and not resolving, need to seek medical evaluation ...Read more
