Got mono, weird pain when swallowing, any advice?

I've got mono, yay. Instead of the traditional sore throat, I've got a weird issue when swallowing - the top-back of my throat (the bit that connects the nose to the throat?) flares in SHARP pain whenever I swallow. Anyone else experience this when they had mono? Any suggestions for relief?

Whose ears popped first?

I know why our ears pop, but I'm wondering when humans reliably began experiencing this sensation caused by anything other than having a cold.

Help for jaw neuralgia?

In May, I went to my dentist for a deep root cleaning on my upper and lower teeth on the left side (with the right side to be done the following week). After the Novocain wore off, I had the usual mild soreness that has accompanied similar cleanings in the past. However, after a couple of days the pain started to migrate over to the right side (i.e., the side that had not been cleaned), at which point it gradually flared into an intense upper and lower jaw ache that was reminiscent of the pain of getting my braces adjusted or the pain that followed my jaw surgery about 9 years ago. The pain lasted off and on for about a month, then gradually went away – until... [more inside]

Can I change the nasal sound of my voice?

My voice has a nasal sound to it - not high-pitched-nasal, more like it sounds like I have a perpetually stuffy nose. Anything I can work on to change that, or am I stuck?

Winter Sinus Problems

What is the best way to get rid of (and prevent) the all-winter-long sinus problems that I and so many other people seem to get? Short of taking decongestants until March, that is.
