Hi guys Im also new here and IM not so sure how this thing will work. But if someone can help me figure out what I might possibly have it will be a great help to take me out of the stress I have had for weeks now.
It all started in the beginning of December 2014 I had a post nasal drip, congested nose and an ichy throat. I took no medications except "panadol advance" for couple of days. Then a week later although my throat felt fine, I have developed an unusual earache like I was underwater along with a severe headache around my ears and the back of my head and dizziness on motion plus and I strangely was biting on theeths while sleeping mostly and my cheek muscle hurt. I went to see ENT doctor and he gave me an antibiotic (500mg/ 3dyas course) antihistamine medication, a muscle flexure supplement and a seawater solution to cleanses the nose with it.
My headache wasn't getting better at any point nor my ear pressure and the post nasal drip didn't stop my throat was dry all the time especially when I wake up in the morning my an accumulated phlegm at the back of it with yellowish spots when spitted. In addition, 2 days after I finished my antibiotic I discovered a swollen node under my jaw on both sides and a pain that I can feel with my finger tip beneath the right ear when I touch it. I went back to the doc a week later after the first appointment and he asked me to do a paranasal CT scan and to keep taking the antihistamine med and cleansing for two more weeks until the swollen glands go away and told me that this might be a virus if not an infection but I can give u more antibiotic. However, I went to see another doc two days later and I was told the same thing he just changed the antihistamine med with another type and told me to do the CT scan without waiting for the swollen glands to go away. I went to see him two weeks later with the scan which has showed nothing but an enlarged tissue near my eyebrow on one side (no ear infection or irritation).
Now it has been the 4th week with glands swollen they're getting better but yet exist and I can feel them tender one side and the other is a bit tough and painful. The ear pressure has also decreased by 90% plus the post nasal drip is nearly solved. But I'm worried about the pain I still have when I touch underneath my right ear and a headache that I get from time to another and blood (vessels appear in the mucus and couple of times it was blood inside the mucus it self from both sides but no continuous bleeding) when I blow my nose only in the morning. I'm now only taking the antihistamine med. Please note I have not developed a fever, chills, night sweats or a skin rash throughout since I got sick I only have a pale face and tired eyes with yellow line underneath. I am not so sure what this might be and I'm worried that I have an on going dangerous virus. I need a professional advice on that and Im really sorry for writing so much and I hope I was clear in my explanation.
