Hi, my name is***** am an ENT and I will be assisting you today.

Ask Your Own Medical Question

Do you have any fevers or chills? Are you (and your family) able to eat regular food and water? Any other symptoms like nasal congestion or cough?

No other symptoms besides a slight sore throat and everyone is really sleepy and tired.

OK, I am sorry you are all feeling like this. This may be a viral illness and it could be mono. There is no way to know for sure without a physical exam and lab tests. Regardless though, you should all stay very well hydrated and try to rest if you can. You can also take Tylenol or a throat lozenge for the throat pain. Try to see your doctor this week if the symptoms are getting worse. Hope that is helpful and please let me know if you have any follow-up questions.

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

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.
