I have a sore throat, runny nose and sore neck glands, one gland is slightly enlarged, also ver tired, but I do work nights so could be part of that.?

Sore throat: Your night shift has nothing to do with the symptoms. It could contribute to it as your timing outside the house being at night may predispose you to colder temperatues and you could catch more infections in the cold. You should see your doctor as you could have strep throat or mono if you have neck glands. ...Read more

Why do I get pain in my head and behind my eyes then it radiates to my neck and part of my gums?

Migraine: In cases of migraine headache, pain in the head, eyes and neck are frequently associated. If the gum pain also goes away when head pain subsides then Gum pain is also part of migraine but if gum pain stays and remains constant then it is a separate dental issue. See a neurologist. ...Read more

Hi, I have strep throat (7 days). My neck and lower part of my head has been stiff the whole time. I have not had a fever at all. Menengitis?

Hi, I have strep throat (7 days). My neck and lower part of my head has been stiff the whole time. I have not had a fever at all. Menengitis?

Not likely: Though it is not likely, if you present to the ER, you might get a lumbar puncture to find out if you have meningitis. Since you have had this stiffness for 7 days and you don't have headache, fever, or change in your mental state, I doubt it's something to worry about. ...Read more

Deep tightness in chest an throat losing voice off an on. An nasal an neck swelling an headache. Is this part of the cold virus going around?

Could be: If you have a fever, cough or shortness of breath as well I would suggest seeing a doctor for a flu test (even if you had the vaccine this year). We're starting to see a good bit of influenza now and since you have underlying lung problems, you should be checked sooner rather than later! ...Read more

5 year old blocked nose and caugh conplaing of lower front part of neck pain. Troat seems to be ok. Why this neck pain.

Possibly referred pa: In the head and neck, many nerves run close to each other and so pain in one spot can be felt in another spot- the pain the your child's neck might be coming from the congestion process, ear problems or if this is caused by a virus infection a lymph node in the neck I would take them to the doctor if there is any high fever or problems swallowing ...Read more

The right part of my chest hurt when I cough, muscle aches, 3 lumps under the neck tiny but moveable and no fevers nor nose run?

The right part of my chest hurt when I cough, muscle aches, 3 lumps under the neck tiny but moveable and no fevers nor nose run?

Several issues: Your chest may be hurting because of strain of muscles between your ribs due to coughing. The tiny lymph nodes are probably normal and unless they enlarge, change consistency, become tender or increase in number are not likely to cause problems. Muscle aches can signal a host of illnesses, or simply be post-exercise. Need more details. ...Read more

I have a horrible feeling of mucus lodged behind my nose and at top of throat and feels like choking me. How to deal with this?

I have a horrible feeling of mucus lodged behind my nose and at top of throat and feels like choking me. How to deal with this?

Nasal mucous: It is normal for the nose to make mucous, but what you are describing sounds excessive. Usually when there is excessive mucous production, there is a reason. Allergies, nasal or sinus infection are common causes. Even acid reflux can get to the level of the back of the nose. Treatment depends on the cause. You can try some nasal saline irrigation, but if this doesn't help, get checked out. ...Read more

Does Nasonex (mometasone) cause drainage? On day 3 taking it, and all a sudden I started experiencing tons of drainage from behind my nose into my throat.

Does Nasonex (mometasone) cause drainage? On day 3 taking it, and all a sudden I started experiencing tons of drainage from behind my nose into my throat.

Transient: If your nasal congestion had been preventing your sinuses to drain, a reduction in the congestion provides for sinus drainage- which is actually a good thing. However I'd expect this to stop after a week at the most. If the problem persists, talk to your doctor about trying an antihistamine nasal spray. ...Read more

I wake up with yellow saliva, coming from the throat. It gets cleared after 2 to 3 times n doesn't show til nxt morn. I feel mucus behind throat n nose?

Viral syndrome: Overnight the junk you inhaled over the day gets cleared so you would sneeze or cough it out in AM. That is natural. If only the last few days, consider viral syndrome or effect of bad air in room or cigarettes. Consider investing in an air purifier. If gets much worse instead of better, may have secondary infection and would need to see doc who can send a sputum culture. ...Read more

I just got over a cold. Then felt like I had something between my nose and throat, I'm guessing behind my soft palette or nasopharynx. I felt like it went up and down but didn't come out from nose or throat, couldn't talk very well. Eventually after takin

Question?: I think your question was cut off. This description is typical for "globus sensation" or "globus pharyngis". Irritation of the delicate tissue above and around the vocal cords gives the sensation of a "lump". It will resolve days after the inciting event or it may be associated with chronic post-nasal drip/rhinitis. For the latter, treatment of the chronic rhinitis makes it disappear. ...Read more

From some days I am getting pain and itching in throat frequently. Small lumps are appearing and disappearing behind ears. Mucus is in nose to throat?

From some days I am getting pain and itching in throat frequently. Small lumps are appearing and disappearing behind ears. Mucus is in nose to throat?

Dr. Can check throat: New throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep throat). Throat lozenges and Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin can help decrease throat pain. ...Read more
