Hello,

I am 27 years old and seemed to be in good condition however...

I have been having these symptoms for a while. I was wondering if someone could tell me a general view of what this could be. I'm a generally healthy person but this has me kind of scared.

Since about the beginning of June I have had an on and off sore throught and in July it kinda manifested into a cough. I'm kind coughing up white flem, it's not all the time I have this cough. Kinda comes and goes. I notice that i have flem in the back of the throat but that even comes and goes. Almost and every other day thing. I notice I have to clear my throat a lot.

Since about may I have noticed that my writsts and ankles are kinda sore off and on as well. Yesterday my knee tightened up quite a bit and my range of motion was very limited. I was limping!! I don't have to many other symptoms, occasional chest pains but that could be from anxiety about this.

I went to the doctors and they have said my blood preassure was at a 145/90. I don't know if that's from me stressing over this or a real symptom.

The doctor first gave me antibiotics which really didn't work for the throat and then prevacid, just in case it was Gerd. That seems to have helped a little.

Thank you for any thoughts!!

Chris
