I have had swollen glands in neck for about 3 months now along with light-headedness and achiness sometimes. Been to ENT, treated w/Prednisone and anti-viral... said I have inner ear virus.

My issue is that the 2 glands on the sides of my throat are swollen, the one inside my chin is swollen, something small and round below my left ear is swollen and something on the outside of my right ear is also swollen. I do not have a fever and I have not vomited at all, which is symptoms of most disorders that have to do with swollen nodes. They do hurt and actually the one below my left ear itches.
