Hello this is Dr. Salama MD,

How long have you had these symptoms?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
2 or 3 days. I'm not even really in a lot of pain its just annoying
Expert:  Michael Salama replied 4 months ago.

It sounds like you are dealing with a viral infection.

I would recommend taking an anti inflammatory such as motrin 400-600mg every 4-6 hours.

If your symptoms are not improving after 5-7 days then I would see a doctor to evaluate you for a possible bacterial infection.

Let me know if you have any other questions.
