I Have Had Neck/ Back Pain For The Past 6
Probably symptoms related to ear infection,follow the advice below.
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I reviewed your query and here is my advice.
In my opinion the lump that you mentioned through your query is related to a swollen lymph node due to an infection.
Based on your symptoms, it might be an ear infection and tonsillitis.
A physical examination is needed to confirm the diagnosis. I also suggest a complete blood count for further evaluations.
Some advice that I can give to you about the treatment are:
-Take anti inflammatory medication such as Ibuprofen 400 mg three times a day.
-Take prescribed antibiotics. You should consult with your doctor about this treatment.
-use antibiotic ear drops for local treatment
-Gargle with salty water
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
Probably hemiparesis,several examinations should be done to confirm it .
Hi again dear.
I understand your concern .
The lump on the neck is probably due to an infection. I suggest you to do the examination that I mentioned above to confirm this diagnosis.
The other symptoms can be related to hemiparesis.This diagnosis is characterised by weakness in one side of the body.
To confirm the cause you should do the following examinations :
-a neurological examination
-a nerve conduction study
After the examinations you can contact me again for further treatment.
Hope it helps,
Take care dear,
