Hi I have sore throat , congestion , coughing , slight upper bk & neck ache (these have been aching w/o 1st 3 issue listed for a while). Ideas?
3 Days w/fever 100-102, sore throat. D4 fvr gone, sore throat w/swollen lymphs in neck. D5 sore throat, lymphs smaller. No congestion. Flu or strep?
Throat infection: The flu season is not at this time. It could be a viral illness though (just not the "flu"). With the duration, and a fever of 102, with persistent lymph nodes, I would get checked for possible bacterial infection (such as strep) as you may require an antibiotic. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What could the following symptoms possibly mean: nasal congestion, swollen lymphnodes, swelling on the neck, and tightness of the throat?
A cold: It sounds like you have a cold. Some cold viruses (like adenovirus) can cause these symptoms. If they do not clear up then see your doctor. Antibiotics are unlikely to be helpful. I hope you feel better soon! ...Read more
Sore throat and nasal congestion, seems like a cold except I recently developed stiffness and pain in my neck and am worried it could be more severe?
Is this the flu or a cold. No fever. Congestion productive cough but with small amount of blood in phlegm. I have a sore throat and neck hurts.
Help! swelling of throat and tonsils, lymph nodes enlarged on neck, violent coughing, very painful to swallow. Fever, body aches, head congestion.
? Head cold?: It sounds like a bad case of virus infection. It will take a few days to resolve. I would advise you to take tylenol (acetaminophen) 2 tablets every 6 hourly for the next 2-3 days. This will relieve the pain. If you have a runny nose or sinus congestion, you could take over the counter decongestant. You c an also buy combinations of 2-3 head cold medicines which contain decongestants along with tylenol (acetaminophen). ...Read more
Sick for about 4 days. Sore throat, productive cough, congestion, face is sore, no fever, mild earache but now my neck is swollen and sore. Seeadoc?
That's a good idea.: For significant sore throat with swollen tonsils / lymph nodes – see physician ; get a strep throat test/ culture. If you have strep throat, antibiotic therapy is imperative to prevent future complications. Consider tylenol (acetaminophen) or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications. Saltwater gargles: mix 1 tsp salt in 8 oz warm water – gargle several times a day. Or gargle with aloe vera juice twice a day. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have a mild headache, sore neck, sore throat, nasal congestion, and chills. What's a good OTC medicine to take? Are zinc lozenges effective at all?
2 weeks ago i had hand/foot/mouth, ever since stuffy nose, throat congestion, and now stiff neck? What could it be?
Cannot diagnose: This sounds as if you have a viral upper respiratory tract infection, but 2 weeks is a lengthy time to be symptomatic. You don't say whether you have fever, nausea, vomiting or photophobia, but your symptoms have been present long enough to warrant a visit to your primary care physician. Go and i hope you feel better soon. ...Read more
I have a sore throat, congestion, plugged ears, and tightness in the back of my neck. Does it sounds like a cold or sinus infection?
URI: It is clear you have an upper respiratory infection. Whether you have a sinus infection on top of that is a tricky question to answer in a doctor's office, let alone on this forum. Sinusitis is usually accompanied by facial pain. If you're not in pain i wouldn't think sinusitis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
