I am a 19 yr old female college student. For the most part I am healthy. Back in october I'd say October 12th or so I came down with an illness, sore throat, cough, ear popping etc. It went away within a few days on its on for the most part. Then on oct 17th I went out for my friends birthday to celebrate, im not a big drinker but that night i drank alot...also we walked around without jackets and coats(upstate ny) the next day i woke up feeling not so great, at first i thought it was a hangover but it turns out it wasnt because the sore throat came back the following day with the headache and ear problems. eventually the sore throat went away but the ear popping persisted. I started to feel a weird sensation in my head like pressure and a weird "cold" achy feeling. That went away and was replaced with these odd head pains, I still have a chronic cough and have been taking sudafed for two days now. Oh and I went out again halloween night without a jacket... I know that was dumb but at the time i didnt feel like a jacket was important. Okay so I'm done with my rant almost. I havent felt like myself in over 2 weeks now. It sucks. I lost most of my appetite it kinda comes and goes. Once in a while I feel dizzy too. Ugh I need some adivce. does anyone know what could be wrong with me? sorry this is so long

You may need to go see your doctor or an ENT. It sort of sounds like you may have an ear infection of some kind and/or a sinus infection.
