No you don't die from an ear infection

As for whether you might need antibiotics I can't say since I can't look in your ear

Dr chip help I got back from Philly all day headache I took 8 advils .still discomfort bin ear .I am so scared can u give me ideas what can it be

I can't look in your ear so I can't say whether or not it's an infection

But nothing serious either way--if it still bothers you by Monday that's time enough to have your doctor check it out

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
But what about headache can it be because of ear ,or just my regular headache .and also with adults ear infection doesn't cause bad things on other organs

Just your regular headache

And no, ear infections in adults don't harm other organs

Customer reply replied 8 months ago

What did you eat last night

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Two sandwiches,two large cookies ,one chocolate bar ,one plum ,and two persimmons

When you say diarrhea what do you mean?

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
It wasn't watery ,I had alot of cramps ,and bm was soft , horrible smell and alot of it .

That's really not diarrhea then

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Ok so why so much cramping ,cold sweats ,and smell is horrible .and what I ate wasn't right am I correct?and what u say about my sleep or lack of it

We've talked about the sleep before and as I've said before you probably have irritable bowel syndrome

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
should I go back again to gastroenterologist I don't want to have another upper endoscopy

No need for that

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Ok Dr a couple of questions one if I sleep very very little how bad is it for my brain,heart ,mental health? second my ear didn't hurt yesterday ,and today was ok then a couple hours ago I use q tip and it started bothering me ,and also when I press under my love it bothers me,and third again how damaging it is if I can't stop eating sweets

Not bad for any of those

The sweets won't kill you

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Ok but what is this discomfort I feel in an ear ,and especially when I used q tip and when I press under love near joe

Love near joe?

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Sorry .under lobe closer to jaw

Might be an inflamed node from an ear infection

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Ooo but I still didn't go to a Dr .how bad is it.

Not bad at all

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
do I go to a Dr ? Or what do I do
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
It didn't hurt yesterday and half a day today and now it's discomfort not pain ,no fever ,ear is not hot to the touch

Then there's no need for a doctor

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
even with discomfort I don't have to ?so with infection I would have a fever ?

Yes you would have a fever

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Dr chip so I woke up today and I feel the tickling in my ear that is why I used q tip yesterday also but so far no pain ,no fever ,abd still if I press under my ear it's a discomfort .what u think .and also Dr chip if I had all heart and stomach tests done in January should everything be repeated again in January

No to the tests

And your ear sounds fine

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
But hypothetical if I do have an ear infection and don't go to Dr and it will go away on its own will I have any harm

Usually they do go away on their own and no harm done

Dr chip so two new fears so today I am home and doing housework so when I breath it feels like needles and second I told u before I have pains in my legs and I also hit my legs alot so today I saw on TV one actor died from blood clot and he had pain I. Legs and disease thrombo something so now I am shaking

You don't and never did have a leg clot

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I didn't but it's one of my fears along with heart and aneurism ,if I sit or lay for a while can u get clot .and if I have pains or if I hit legs

No you don't get clots that way

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
How do I know if I have that clot disease.

You never will with the way your mind works

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I am sorry I didn't understand the last reply

You've got this irrational fear of clots and no matter what any doctor tells you--that you don't have them and you don't have any risk factors for them--you constantly think that's a problem

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
U right I know I always touch my legs and check for swelling ,and every time I read or hear some one die from it or pe i get petrified

You need to let that fear go

Dr chip all day today and yesterday I feel this thirst and this weird feeling on my tounge and inside mouth when I touch it it's dry and feels weird sometime when I eat persimmons I get this feeling but I didn't eat it
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I usually get this yucky feeling when I take Zoloft but it goes away and today no and I am afraid I will die of a shock and I keep licking my lips but tounge feels dry and funny

Die of shock?

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
The allergic one

Where'd you get that idea?

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
U probably know what I feel and can u tell me what is it
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
In my head

Sounds like you're just a little dehydrated--just drink some fluids

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I have been drinking hot tea or warm tea .but why is my tounge feels ripply and dry and around my mouth too

Then it's totally in your mind

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
No no .let me explain I don't know if u eat persimmons but sometimes when u eat them u get same feeling ur tounge and around mouth is very very dry and no matter what I drink it doesn't go away ,well that's what I feel only I didn't eat that fruit ,today I ate sandwich ,dark chocolate with almond,cookie with cranberries ,pear

There's nothing worrisome with any of this

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
But my question is do u understand what is it I am experiencing ? It's not deadly reaction and how to get rid of it .

It's not an allergy and you aren't going into shock

Just suck on some hard candy or chew some gum

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.

*is experiencing severe chest pain that comes and goes for moments at a time, maybe a minute or 30secs at a time, and he describes it as feeling like his chest is on fire while he inhales, but feels cold as he exhales. He also has difficulty breathing while his chest is in pain, and as soon as the pain subsides and breathing becomes easier, he feels very weak immediately after. He's been feeling this for the past few days; it all began with what we assumed was a panic attack. That was when the pain and difficulty breathing began, only the first time, it was so severe that he momentarily (about 2 or 3 secs) passed out.
