Back in May my left cheek hurt for a few minutes and then swelled up, and stayed swollen for days. I was told by an urgent care doc it was probably a virus, and I did get a bad sore throat
& tonsil which were very swollen and red. Also had fatigue, muscle aches, slight fever of 99.0 to 99.6 and earaches. After a month I was still sick, so my regular GP gave me a strep test, blood work and UA, all came back fine.
