hello, i had had a little pit of a bother inside ear when i would open jaw/making some move movement with lips. that subsided-can't do it anymore. Now i touched below ear/near the end of jaw and it bothers I think it is the tonsillar node that feels a bit more sore than the other side when i push near the area. Now i also feel like my ear is stuffed like it gets when inside plane.
Thank you for your question,
I’m Dr. Saha and I’ll try to help you.
When did all those symptoms start?
Do you feel any lump there?
Is there any discharge from ear?
A little lump. The slight pain in ear with movement started at the beginning of the week. I've been having a lot of runny nose. I now have itchy eyes and itchy nose started a couple days ago as well. Wonder if this is related. No discharge, but for years, I've always had a good amount of wax. The discomfort in the tonsillar area I noticed today.
I can have an upper respiratory infection even if I don't feel sick? I always attributed the runny nose to allergies and the fact that it is always really really cold in my house-- causes me to have bloody mucous sometimes. Sometimes my nose isn't runny at all...The pain was coming and going, but now what bothers it the touching of that toncillar area.
How do you treat an upper respiratory infection? Is this bad?
What kind of bacterial throat infection could it be?
