The thing is, it doesn’t really matter what the diagnosis is right now. What the site does is give you a recommendation on when you should see a doctor, if you need to at all, and what home treatment will help in the meantime.

Any nurse or doctor who would make even a possible diagnosis online based on your symptoms alone,would be practising poor nursing or medicine.

Sounds like there might be an infection in your throat near the eustachian tube. Your ears connect via a tube to your pharynx (throat), so an infection near that site can cause problems with both. Does your ear feel like there’s something wrong with the pressure inside it? If so, the tube might be blocked… Just a thought

sounds like a possible ear infection and a bad cold. Until you get to the doctor I’d suggest lots of hot liquids and water and maybe some good cold medicine such as theraflu (the type you drink as hot tea) to ease the symptoms? Hope you feel better!!! If it gets really bad I’d go to the ER and not wait until tomorrow. Also mucinex is really good for breaking up the mucus causing you to cough, that may help too. If you take that, make sure you’re drinking lots of water (it wont work if you dont!!)

Sounds like an throat infection to me.  Do you have urgent care in your area?  The sooner you get medicine, the better.

@MrsPom:  AW! I’m glad your feeling a little better! I hope you have a speedy recovery! (I’ve been recovering from a summer cold for about a week and a half Yell)

Hope you feel better soon. I’m curious why he prescribed an antibiotic for what he thought was a viral infection. Antibiotics are only effective for bacterial infections.

Sometimes doctors write an Rx but tell you only to get it filled in a few days if you are not feeling better.
