For the past 24 hours...
For the past 24 hours I've had severe pain in my right side of my head from my right eye, temples inside my ear, my jaw and side of neck. It's been persistent and not getting better. I have a sore throat and when I cough it hurts worse along with weakness. I've been told I've had thyroid cysts and I'm wondering if I should seek medical attention or let it run its course.

stuffy and runny nose on right side and my right ear feels clogged. Havent seen phlegm but it is inflamed just on the right side. I stopped taking phentermine about 4 days ago. Some dizziness along with the weakness.

Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.
Thanks for the follow-up.
I understand your concern.
As per your description, possible differential diagnosis may include Sinusitis,Ear infection,Eustachian tube blockage.

You should do steam inhalation and saline gargles.

Also take OTC Mucinex DM.

Do nasal saline spray and Sudafed nasal decongestant.

Take OTC Advil every 4-6 hourly.

You should maintain a good hydration.

And see an ENT specialist for a clinical exam.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
