Common Questions and Answers about Left side of neck sore glands

sore

Hi there, I also had a lot of the glands in the right side of my neck swell after a minor cold, and spent months afterwards with a chronic sore throat, fatigue, depression and headaches. I even lost a load of hair.
Over the past few days though i have developed about four or five more of these bumps on my chin and my left jaw line and my two glands under my chin are swollen and sore too. Also when i lean my neck back the front of my neck if really sore when it is stretched. All of the bumps that i have formed are just contsantly oozing out oil(so thats why i think those are just ingrown hairs).
I've had really bad pain in the left side of my neck now for about 5 weeks. I havn't been to the docter as it seems such a small thing to complain about. However, it is really hurting, it is the first thing I feel in the morning and the last thing at night. The glands seem to be a little swollen behind and under the ear. Although I do not have ear ache, I am getting occassional sharp pains in my ear and down my neck. Is there any thing I can do about this?
It has now been a month that my neck glands and my throat glands have been swollen steady. It is not sore, the only pain I feel is when they start to grow bigger, when ever i'm chewing and swallowing it will feel like a pinch sometimes, but not always. I went to my doctor early this week, but he's not sure whether to put my on antibotics for 2 weeks or not because he thinks it could either make it better or make me feel worse. I've also been using salt and warm water this whole month.
till now i have not recovered yet and sometimes felt a slight pain in my left neck..also felt that the left side of my neck is more sensitive than the right side making me abit uncomfortable..any advice of what i should do ?
I am 18 years old and my lymph nodes are swollen on the right side of my neck and are painful at times. Ive been expierencing side pain also on my right side. i went to my docter but i felt that she kind of rushed the appt. and prescribed me antibiotics for it and declared it was probably due to allergies. i have night sweats but am not usually tired. i have currently lost my voice almost completely but i think its due to a sore throat and drinking.

he did however give me some cream for a rash (shaving rash on my left hand side) Its now day 45 and I still have a sore neck on the left side during the day, the pain goes away at night (when laid down). I have NOT had a fever, or headaches or any other obvious ARS symptons, however the sore within my neck is really getting me down and depressed... I have never had a sore neck like like before.
I haven't gone to the doctor and i've been like this for almost 5 days now. My neck is very sore on my left side and very lightly on my right side. It's hard to sleep comfortable at nights and I'm living on Ibuprofen. I take 400-1000 mgs at a time and I feel okay for about 6-8 hours then I have to take it again. I don't actually have a sore throat, it is my neck and my head that hurts. I have no feeling of congestion or any symptom of allergies or cold.
The doctor said that it was not overly large and that it is not unusual for nodes to be asymmetrical which is I guess what worried me initially as I have been used to them being consistent on each side (I can barely feel it on the other side of my neck) This has been going on for about 6 months now and I am pretty sure the size has never changed (hard to tell really as it is subjective for me) I still find it a little disconcerting as it can still clearly be felt but I am far more comfortable
- During the 2nd-3rd week I developed a dry sore throat and a radiating dull ache from the (now swollen) glands down the centre of my throat. (four on right side, one on left) - After approx four weeks I had a brief respite from the pain for approx five days, though glands still a little up. i then drank alcohol (foolishly!!!) and the following day the pain was back with avengence. I have now had aching painful glands and a sore throat for seven weeks.

So 4 days after that encounter I began to get a sore throat and swollen glands and tonsils in my neck (one side in particular)with some discharge from tonsils. My throat is not really that sore and has gotten a bit better, however the gland on my left side is still really swollen and tender (its about 3/4 of an inch large). I havn't felt like I have a temperature at all.
Well, took the last of my med. tonight, so let's sit back and wait! What else is new? The glands on the left side of my neck are the only ones that are swollen and they do seem to have gone down a little bit. Maybe. My doctor told me that I have all of the classic symptoms of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and that he feels that it is all feeding off of each other. The gland right below my left ear is swollen enough that the edge of it is pressing against my jaw. Right in the joint.
Gonorrhoea, results came back three weeks later as negative Was then retested for Chlamydia and results came back a week later negative. a week I started to have a sore patch on the left side of my neck, I visited the doctors on day 12 with this and he said my lymph nodes were not swollen bit I had a slight sore throat. This sore throat went away within 7-10 days, I reveiested the doctors on day 24 as neck still sore, he again check my nodes and confirmed nothing was swollen.
) on the right side of my neck, the pain seems to be increasing with time, and the right side of my neck is starting to feel sore and somewhat swollen, although that might be because I keep messing with it since it is making me nervous.
I guess i forgot to say that my lymph glads were swolen until my stress went away, but mine were only swolen on one side. I never had any swolen in my pelvic area, but on the left side of my neck, and it was sore to the touch too.
When I use the left-side for chewing, it is not the same as the right-side feeling. All the teeth on the left-side of the jaw feels weak. I experience discomfort/slight pain in the jaw/gums when I bite down on the left-side. My question : are both the above symptoms due to nerve disruption and will they get back to normal eventually?
I think you can see that something in there is swollen, with yellow splotches mostly on the left side (well, right side in the picture), behind the teeth. (Also, not sure if the roof of my mouth looks normal?) This might not be important, but I want to mention everything, in case it might be connected in some way.
I have had a gland swollen on the side of my neck for 6 weeks now. I can't get in to get ot biopsied until may 16th!! I take my showers looking straight ahead, afraid to look anywhere in case more nodes have popped up. I can barley function anymore because of fear. I'm glad to know I am not alone in my obsession that something is seriously wrong.
My glands even felt sore but just on the right side. The left side had no pain when I swallowed. This has happened many times before. I was just wondering if anyone has experienced anything similar?
Also, I have had swollen lymph nodes in my neck for about 6 months (at least 6 months since I noticed the one on my left side and 3 since I noticed the one on my right). They however aren't sore to the touch and I only notice them when I "give myself a double chin" by putting in my cheeks and pressing down firmly to feel them. I went to my doctor a few months ago and he brushed off both symptoms without real explanation.
ive had a stiff neck since having an operation 6 months ago physio isnt helping much and now for the past 8 weeks ive had a severe pain in my throat on the left side around my lynph nodes but the pain moves from up to behind my left ear to sometimes being under my chin! my gp cant find any lumps and an endoscopy didnt show up anything? pain killers are doing nothing and the pain is constant! i cant take much more! sometimes its a little painfull to swallow but i can eat ok.
I have also had constantly swollen glands at the back left side of the neck and near my left armpit since fall. The upper part of my neck swells up a lot, too, sort of like a huge double-chin running from one end of the jaw to the other. My throat feels tight, like everything inside is swollen and pushing against each other. It doesn't feel like strep and doesn't really hurt. I have been on two different antibiotics -- cephalexin and ??? (might have been doxycycline) for infection, in Oct.
My groin area was uncomfy the 1-2 week (but read my posts, all this due to possible bacteria/UTI from spermicide use). My neck, while it was sore, didnt feel like a sore throat by any means. To the touch it wasnt painful, and I couldnt really tell if my neck was swollen....so how can i tell if i have swollen neck glands? I'm still waiting on the results of the HIV test, but i really suspect its nothing. Still on Doyxciline for the possible bacertia/uti/minor std precaution.
