Swollen glands in my throat, my chest feels tight/tired, a cough and a constant bad headache and a fever (sweating/burning to freezing/shivering)?

Influenza: Is very common viral infection. Usually the condition resolves on its own with home care. Antibiotics do not help. Drink water and get a good rest. NSAIDs (e.g. Aleve, Advil) or Tylenol (acetaminophen) are also recommended every 6 hours. If concerned, see your PCP for examination. ...Read more

Can GERD cause lightheaded feeling and swollen glands? I am a 41 year old female, have a hiatal hernia. Feeling like food is stuck in chest as well.

Can GERD cause lightheaded feeling and swollen glands? I am a 41 year old female, have a hiatal hernia. Feeling like food is stuck in chest as well.

Unlikely: I would see a doctor about the swollen glands and lightheadedness. Unlikely related to hh. Hiatal hernia and acid reflux could cause the esophagus to spasm or even develop scar tissue and narrowing. This would cause the feeling of food sticking or catching. I would see your doctor about getting a test to check your esophagus. If not already taking acid medication twice a day, recommend doing so. ...Read more

Swollen glands neck, couple of night sweats, loss of appetite, sleepness have got better, now on citalopram20mg now for depression weird feelings in chest?

Many Symptoms: Your question seems to focus on the weird feelings in your chest. I can only guess that you are looking for the cause of these unusual feelings. Many of your symptoms point to an infectious cause. The only way to determine if there is an infection is to consult with your primary care physician for a good history and physical. Your use of citalopram may not be related to these feelings at all. ...Read more

It started with swollen glands, fatigue, oral thrush, .  had CT of head and neck, chest. Now have enlarged thyroid and choking sensation. ?

Complicated: Your symptoms suggest a viral cause. The fatigue, gland swelling and rapid thyroid enlargement indicate a systemic (total body process). By the fact you have had a ct scan I assume you have seen a doctor. Hopefully bloodwork was done and the information will be helpful. Your most important issue right now is your airway, if you are having trouble breathing you need to go to the hospital er asap. ...Read more

Probably sinus: Your history suggests that you may be suffering from nasal congestion (most likely from allergies) leading to obstruction of the sinus drainage and then infection. Controlling the nasal congestion would be the first step (visit an allergist?). Later on a CT sinus and/or immune work-up may be pursued if indicated. ...Read more

I have swollen glands in my neck/ arm pits for over 4 mo and I have been getting sick a lot they have done blood work and lung xray all was good.?

Second opinion: You might need one, and from a doctor, not from the internet. I'm sure your doctors have done many tests, some of which we would need to see before guiding you to the next step (s). At some point, swollen lymph nodes need to be fully explained, and that might include doing a biopsy (though there are many situations where that is not necessary). ...Read more

Could an eye orbital mass be metastatic lung cancer from a 11 mm lung nodule, with no swollen glands or other evidence of cancer?

Could an eye orbital mass be metastatic lung cancer from a 11 mm lung nodule, with no swollen glands or other evidence of cancer?

Time has taught me..: ..That with cancer almost anything is possible. That said, it would be unlikely for a 1cm lung "nodule" to go only to the orbit, especially if it is not proven to be cancer. I would suggest you discuss this with your doc (there may be details he/she knows that we don't) but seems to me that further imaging or maybe a biopsy are considerations if either of those 2 lesions are suspicious enough. ...Read more

Tender underarm ribs, no swollen glands. Stomach bloating could it be from gerd/ibs.

See your physician: It's hard to know what to make of your symptoms without more information. Trying to make sense of disparate symptoms without knowing the the specifics of your medical history, physical exam and specific answers to focused questions is impossible. It's possible your tenderness underarm is unrelated to your other symptoms. For a proper diagnosis see your physician. ...Read more

I have a terrible sore throat with swollen glands. What can help relieve the pain? I am a breast feeding mother.

Sore throat: First of all, consult your primary care doctor to rule out a strep throat because you will need an antibiotic for it. If it turns out that you just have a viral infection, you may be able to take Acetaminophen preferably and gargle with warm salt water every 4 hours. Practise frequent handwashing to protect your baby from getting your infection. ...Read more
