  1. I was put on an antibiotic and it has been causing me to feel nauseous. This morning it actually caused me to throw up. I'm worried that maybe I'm allergic to the med. Is this common?
  2. A lot of different things can cause our ears to feel weird, most of which I'm sure are minor issues that can be treated at home, or resolve on their own. What comes to my mind is perhaps the pressure in your eustachian tube is off. Yawning can help correct the pressure if that's the case. Another thought is it could be allergies, or maybe you need to have your ear cleaned. Heck, it's even possible that it's nothing at all.
  3. Who else on here takes other peoples' problems and worries about them as if they're your own issues? For example, a family member injures themselves and you worry that it's something serious, when in reality it isn't.
  4. After I woke up this morning I noticed that the left side of my upper lip area feels strange... like it's swollen (the area closer to my nose). It didn't feel that way lastnight, so I'm not sure what the deal is. I didn't eat anything out of the ordinary. 🤷‍♀️ I took some allergy relief so hopefully that helps. Otherwise I hope it's just the way I slept, or just one of those odd sensations with no cause or explanation. I'm feeling really stressed and edgy lately, as I've been having one issue after the next. Real ones. I'm dealing with a breast abscess right now.
  5. I had it checked out and it turned out to be benign.
  6. Maybe it's just me, but when I'm experiencing high levels of anxiety, I want to be hugged by my mom (hugs from other people don't count, oddly), which does help a little. Does anyone else do this to cope? If not, what do you crave when you need comfort?
  7. *sigh* It would seem that I'm having an awful time with thinking that I have cancer this year. I guess it's my latest obsession... Anyway, about a week or so ago I noticed a lump under my right breast, which feels firm but feels round. I didn't think much of it since I get cyst-like lumps often. This one, though, the location scares me. It's bigger now (I keep messing with it), and it does hurt when I put pressure on it. I believe it's also mobile, as I can grab around it and move it around. Has anyone else ever had anything like this?
  8. I'm used to it, but having background noise does help with the ringing. In general I don't like being in a silent room, so I always have a fan on for white noise. It doesn't lessen the ringing sound for me (being in crowd or other noisier events is when I don't hear it as much), but it works as a distraction. As for periods of it being louder, that doesn't really happen to me, but sometimes I do experience a brief change in sound and pitch that quickly resolves itself. You're welcome, and I'm happy that I could help with reassuring you. 😁 I'll also add that my mom deals with tinnitus, but I'm not sure if hers is constant or not
  9. I'm 26 and I've had tinnitus for as long as I can remember (sometimes I wonder if I was born with it), so I can assure you that it's harmless. :3 Many different things can cause ringing in the ears such as allergies, anxiety, and loud noise.

    Thermometers tend to be wonky, so I wouldn't worry about it. My guess is your thermometer is also picking up other things in the environment that is altering the reading.
  11. Thank you for your kind response. 🙂 My anxiety is not being kind to me this morning. I want to go to the ER, but no one wants to take me in. I don't drive.
  12. You're fine. 🙂 Since you're up to date with the tetanus shot, and your doctor has reassured you that you're fine, there is nothing to worry about. The symptoms you listed are common symptoms of anxiety.
  13. I would personally have it checked out by a doctor for your peace of mind. 🙂 But as to what it could be, It's probably not a blood clot if you've had the swelling for that long. It could be inflamed from an injury, or over use of a muscle.
  14. I can't offer you an answer, but I'm also worried about the color of my stool at the moment if that helps. Re-reading the posts on this subject on this forum does reassure me that it's nothing to worry about. However, what has been bothering me the most is that I think it has been off for weeks. I'm hoping it's simply my anxiety that's causing this, and not something more sinister.
  15. Right now I'm convinced that I have some sort of cancer for the past month. )= I'm from the US.
