Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
I am online and happy to help you with your question today.
I agree with you. This sounds like an allergic reaction.
To what? It is hard to tell. It may be something that you ate or even something that you have come in contact with.
How long has this been going on for?
I got home on Sunday and it started on Monday afternoon.
It has been going on for some time now then.......have you had any feeling of tightness in your check, problems breathing, swallowing or swelling around your face or tongue?
my neck and shoulders are sore today
Have you tried over the counter medicines such as benadryl or clariton D?
yes, I take zyrtec. Doesn't seem to help.
OK. Well, in my opinion, since this has been going on for 4 days already and nothing at home has helped, and the weekend is almost upon us (which will make getting care until Monday possibly an issue) I'd probably call your primary care MD and see if she can see you today or tomorrow.
I think that Rx meds should be able to clear this up for you, even though the actual causative agent may never be found.
Thank you for you help, I appreciate it.
My pleasure. I hope you feel better soon.
