My mother has right nasal blockage, right throat gland is swollen/blocked, she has a hard time swallowing (was given Z-pack) about a month ago with no results. Also is getting severe stomach muscle spasms. She recently had upper/lower GI tests done and the doctor told her she was getting stomach muscle spasms from whatever was draining in the stomach.

Currently, she sleeps fine through the night but when she wakes up in the morning she has dry heaves bad, her head feels like its burning or going to pop, right side abdominal/stomach pain. Plus she has just been diagnosed with high blood pressure.

Doctor can't seem to figure out what is going on? Can you please help?

  • can you ask for a CT Scan? my mom had symtoms like that-antibiotics didnt work and it hurt really bad to sneeze. turns out she had a large tumour in her throat. is a good start anyway, they can see her sinus cavity, passages , any growths, etc. doctor can order it if you ask. good luck :) i hope she feels better soon.

  • oh my gosh! I am so concerned about everybodies health! You must seek alternative methods of healing. A practitioner of traditional chinese medicine?I have too many times had doctors look at me as though I was a hypo-condriact! "specailist" and doctors do not have all the answers.
