thanks for requesting me again :-)
This evening just started feeling some pain in my neck mostly right sided form bottom center up about 1-2 inches on right side feels tender/pain/maybe swollen. Pushing on left side makes the right side feel just as bad sometimes even worse.
No visible swelling just feeling under skin.
Pressure hurts but also feels good at same time
Moving head in certain positions causes some discomfort
Now discomfort has spread to jawline but again pressing helps it
Ear strange feeling almost feels like it is full of something although my ears have been strange lately getting warm and such.feels like you put a drop in your ear but its not coming out
Doesn't feel like Mono or anything like that noticing some ear discomfort on that side as well..
No visible exterior swelling but feels like it under the skin. From pictures it seems to be a lymph node but I'm not sure.
About 1 1/2 weeks ago dentist injected the local into left jaw area and has been painful and was prescribed Medrol Dose Pack Just finished day 4 tomorrow 5 and last day Sunday. Something about the injection causing muscles to tighten up. Have been using ice packs, the Medrol and 800 mg Ibuprofen QID or so.
Headaches but they are caused because glasses are slightly to small and press against me.

Thats the entire thing not enough space to get it all in earlier
do you feel any swelling>
like tender lymph nodes?
not visible but yes like the lymph nodes under skin'
and you say your ear is sore too, correct?
or it feels full
yes not like really painful but like a drop is in there and wont come out
it sounds like you might be developing a viral infection and the neck is tender because the lymph nodes are swollen
the eustachian tube between the ear and mouth can get blocked
you should take some decongestant
like sudafed or phenylephrine
so that the fluid can drain out- otherwise you will get a middle ear infection
and make sure you are checking your glucose levels too
gah show drivers license to make sure Im not making crank.....
yes my glucose were high
but have settled down now
all steroid induced i believe
can't make meth from that
I like sudafed better though
i will do sudafed
just silly carding for 1 box i think
you need like 40 boxes to make meth
or be like XXXXX XXXXX from breaking bad :-)
A1C when Dx 14.6 now 7.4 I m happy....LOL Breaking Bad
I will be around all weekend, so keep me up on your progress
So married divorced?
That is great!
well unless he was an ass
Actually for the best- really
but back to you
I answered the qusetion about your wife and her thyroid
If you need more detail let me know
I will be back in a few minutes
But take a look at the other answer
for another ultrsound this week
I am back if you want
the right side is still extremely painful umm when I cough or even a sharp intake abreast the right above the ear area gets extremely painful um I am taking the sudafed 12 in the morning only and I am taking the augmentin they gave me for an ear infection twice a day um I see the PCP tomorrow morning at 9 40 anything else you would suggest until that time
Heading off to see PA-C @ PCP's office in about 20 minutes.
No problem I have enough family crisis's to understand.
I am using heating pad and motrin still doing Sudafed in am and Augmentin BID
875 took this am already
Sunday x 2
Monday x 2
then today 1
Ok will reply when I return home.
Ok they think it is a fungal infection in my mouth similar to thrush with all the red dots. My throat looked raw also.
So I am to continue the Augmentin 875 BID
Start Diflucan 100mb BID for 2 days then QD for 6 more days
Start Norco and stop Oxycodone as Contraindicated with the fungal drug. Also stop my Zocor for the 8 days I am taking the anti-fungal.
Still really painful called back just to make sure. Moving head, laying down, just causes a lot of pain over the right temple area
Still no fever.
The antibiotic you mentioned she declined as it is not covered by my insurance company.
OK because the pain is still crazy like in my neck and head when laying down or moving in different directions.
Mostly from around my mastoid area through the ear and to the neck.
not yet waiting for a callback now
Ok I think I will be making a trip there as nothing really seems to be helping.
Pick up my little man then ER I will go.
In ER toradol via IV
Had them do CAT scan without contrast to alleviate fears regarding possible anyurism
Pain does seem to be relieved some
CAT Scan negative
They think combination of ear infection plus steroids caused fungal infection in mouth and then having a really bad case of Sinusitis.
Pain relieved somewhat but noticeable improvement
just norco because I can't take my normal due to interaction with anti-fungal
