Ever feel this way???

Ive been a little nauseous for a couple days now.
Last night I noticed I could not touch the right side of my neck, it hurt so bad!
This morning a woke up with a sore throat only on my right side.
While at work I started to feel like there was something sharp stuck in my throat.. only on the right side. Then I started to get a really bad headache along with an ear ache.
I went to a NextCare clinic and talked to a Dr.
I dont have strep and my ears and throat look fine... but I feel like crap!! :(
All he told me was to drink lots of fluids and wait it out.
Has anyone had this problem???
I feel like Im getting worse and thinking about going to the ER if I get a temp.. :(

  • Do you still have your tonsils? Sounds like all the symptoms of tonsilitus.

  • It does sound like anything I have ever heard, however I suggest googling it and ultimately only you kniw how you feel. If you feel that bad by all means seek medical attention (ER).

  • I've never had that happen but it sounds pretty serious. Did the doc do any blood work on you? If not, you should request, no DEMAND that blood work gets done. It may be something, it may be nothing, but there are things that can't be seen with the naked eye. I hope that they find out what is wrong and fix it before it gets out of hand. Feel better soon!

  • Dont have my tonsils.. I tried googling and that was the first thing that came up :( Boo!
    I feel like Im having hot flashes and the back of my neck feels achy.
    I also take a daily med. for migraines. ???
    They took another swab of my throat before I left to send it in to a lab.
    Ooooo! I hate feeling sick! It makes it worse that a Dr. doesnt know whats wrong with me!! :(

  • Have you started anything new? Meds?Food or Diet?Exercise program?

  • Nothing new.. I eat healthy too.
    I went to the chiropractor earlier this week.. would that give me pain in my neck and a sore throat/ headache/ earache??
    Still feel the same :(

  • go see the chiropractor again. and then follow dr's orders, rest and fluids!!!
    sounds like a yucky virus. let it run its course. don't try to stop the symptoms, they are serving a purpose.
