Here is what has been going on with me for the past 2 months... July 4th weekend I was diagnosed with Strep Throat. I went to the doctor and he prescribed me Zithromax which helped out a lot. On the last night of my 5-day prescript
ion, I had ear popping/fullness which I am pretty sure it was from going to the beach and getting wiped out under the water about
5 or 6 times, and I went to the beach WHILE I had strep throat, (wasn't such a good idea...) I also had a fever that night, but that was probably because I was forcing myself to stay under the covers so I wouldn't get sick again. Next day I had a racing heartbeat, fatigue, and aches. (I had A LOT of anxiety at this time as well because of what was happenening to me...) I went to the doctor again and described my symptoms, and the doctor put me on a 10-day Keflex prescript
ion as he thought there might be some infection from the Strep Throat left. He also ordered a Throat Culture and a Complete Blood Count to make sure everything was ok. All the tests came back normal. It turns out that the aches I had been complaining about
were all because of the anxiety I was experiencing. On July 25th, I was on a plane to Los Angeles with my mom, and when we were desceding, the strangest thing happened. My nose suddenly filled up with so much mucus that I was blowing it all out for about
20 minutes straight. August 24th I came back, same thing happened, but not as dramatic. The only symptoms I have left are:
Ear popping/fullness-ALL THE TIME
Congested nose (One nostril blocked while the other is fine/constantly switches nostril to nostril)-ALL THE TIME
^I am not sure what the constipation/diarrhea is from, but I think it's from all the medicines I have been taking lately. In the paragraph at the top of this post, I mentioned taking Zithromax (July 5th - July 10th) and Keflex (July 23rd - August 3rd), and after taking Keflex I tried taking Tylenol and Sudafed to relieve my sinus problems which didn't seem to help. (Sometime between August 6th - August 20th/On and off.) Also 2 nights ago I took a Benadryl to help relieve my sinus problems, (it helped A LOT,) and took one again last night. Could the constipation/diarrhea also be from past anxiety I have experienced? Or could the constipation/diarrhea be caused by my seasonal allergies? I have also been recently drinking more water and eating healthier, but that probably isn't the cause because the constipation/diarrhea started after I started taking Zithromax until now. I am pretty sure the constipation/diarrhea symptoms I am experiencing are nothing serious because alllllll of this mess started with a simple Strep Throat.
Could all this be caused by seasonal allergies? My dad also has severe seasonal allergies, my dad's dad does too. I'm only 15.
