What is the treatment for twitching, congestion, and migraine?

Hi doctor,

I am a 64-year-old male. I have been experiencing the following symptoms:

Recently, a little muscle on the side of my chin started twitching several times a day.

  1. Seasonal allergies at the moment.

  2. Feeling my head heavy.

  3. Brain fog.

  4. Fell congested high in the nose (breathing not impaired).

  5. Soar throat.

  6. Tnnitus (since 26 years old) has increased slightly, mainly in the left ear and feels a little painful once in a while.

  7. Started having migraine with auras.

  8. Sometimes, an odor of something burning in the nose (I feel this each year during allergies season).

  9. Laundry detergents begin to smell unusual on clothes after a few hours.

  10. If I remove the clothes, the smell disappears, so the detergent (I tried various brands) seems to be the trigger).

  11. Recently, a little muscle on the side of my chin started twitching several times a day.

  12. I thought that I had a sinus infection, but the total of these symptoms worried me.

  13. I also have some nausea (but not in the stomach, more on the side of the neck (glandular nods, or something like this).

Kindly help.

Is uvular squamous papilloma contagious and does it require surgery or is it self-resolving?

Hello doctor,

I have been told that I have a squamous papilloma on my uvula. I wonder whether surgery is the only modality of treatment, or can it likely resolve by itself? I have been assured that it is benign. But I am very scared of passing it on. I have a partner who knows about this however, I am scared that I might pass it on to her. Could you please give some clarity?
