Sore throat and glands

Common Questions and Answers about Sore throat and glands


Avatar n tn It happened on a Saturday night and by Tuesday morning I started to get a moderately bad sore throat and a mild fever. By Thursday, the lymph nodes on the right side of my neck started to swell and my neck started to get stiff. It's now Friday and my sore throat is still just as bad, my neck is still stiff, & my lymph nodes are still swollen. My fever is gone, but I'm freaking out about possibly catching something from that guy.
966444 tn?1254103769 For the past three week I have been sick with a cold beat the cough which lasted a week sore throat lasted a week, now my throat is still raw and my glands have been swollen for two weeks going on three. It seems I am constantly clearing my throat! Is this normal, why am I sick now all the time?
Avatar f tn if is throat feels sore too in general, sounds like a throat infection
Avatar n tn I have mild reflux but this is controlled using motilium and somac as needed, and I do not associate the sore throat periods with a noticeable flare up of my reflux. This sore throat drives me mad, as mainly because of the swollen glands I feel very unwell all the time. What could it be?
Avatar m tn Four [4] week latter go a very mild sore throat with swollen neck gland on both sides of my neck NO fever and felt good during that period. It lasted 2 days and was gone. I have never had swollen gland ever. This seems strange to me even though I am trying to rationalize it. Am I correct that 4 weeks seems a little long for symptoms? No fever is a key of not being infected? Swollen glands would not be localized but general throughout the body in ARS? And of course oral very low risk period?
Avatar n tn i have been suffering with a sore throat and swollen glands in my neck for the past 4 weeks.i visited the doctor and they put me on klacid for 5 days.this is day 6 and ive not mad into exercise and sport.will theese symptoms go away?can i still do sport and exercise?
Avatar f tn For a week and a half I had a mild sore throat that felt like you're regular sore throat. Day by day my right tonsil hurt more and more, and it's getting so I have that "throaty" voice again, and swallowing is painful. This isn't your "scratchy sore throat." It's more of a dull pain that intensifies when I swallow. I did take antibiotics for two years, which I stopped about four months before I got sick the first time.
Monkey If you were my patient, I would advise you that sore throats are frequently caused by viruses. Tonsils are glands in the throat that filter infection from the head and neck. Sometimes they can become chronically inflammed and need to be removed. If you have infections frequently, you may want to see your regular doctor, or an ear-nose and throat specialist. Good luck!

1327326 tn?1275061623 Hi my symptoms are basically: 1. Sore neck - my glands are swollen and my neck is actually sore to touch, it hurts to turn my head and when I yawn, cough or sneeze I get a sharp pain in my neck. 2. I have pressure in my ears, my neck, and had a few headaches. 3. I have intermittent feelings of a low-grade fever. 4. Light headed and dizzy. 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.
Avatar m tn Ars symtoms usually appear 2 to 4 weeks after infection and last for about between 4 days and 2 weeks.They include very sore throat,very high fever and rash on trunk-torso and limbs.There is no point putting it off because only a test result is going to provide you with the answers you seek.I wish you all the best.

Avatar n tn The skin infection cleared after three days of fuisidic cream treatment and my sore throat was gone but the glands are still there. I felt quite tired for the next 2 coming days and 5 days later i found two more glands in my groin(swollen and not visible but can only be felt). Then i started feeling like my muscles r twitching(spasms like) could it be a disease? coz im really trying to figure it out?
Avatar m tn - Wk 2 initial glands went down and dry sore throat emerged, from swollen glands that had come up down centre of my throat, bilateral (4 right, 1 left) - radiating ache from glands. - Wk 4 - brief respite from pain for 4 days, returned when drank alcohol. - Now had aching painful glands and intermittant sore throat for 6 wks. - CRP 40, Esr 29, electrolytes ok, wbc count and diff ok. EBV - - Had NO other symptoms Gp suspects acute virus. Poor communicator.
Avatar n tn It has been five days now and I feel the same, I wake up in the night because of the sore throat and headache. My question is do you have any advice that would help, or ideas what my be causing this?
Avatar n tn But at what point should I be concerned (or should clue me in) that this isn't a cold/strep/sore throat, and that this might be gonorrhea or some other STD? And if/when it goes away, should I continue to worry about it, or does that mean whatever caused it has passed? Thanks much.
Avatar n tn I have slightly swollen glands and sore (nurofen) every four to six hours. Don't feel like I have infection anywhere should I go to doctor. Don't want to waste their time. Only had this for three days.
Avatar n tn My nose has also been kinda stuffy, on and off. Not runny, just stuffy, like an allergy/sinus. I looked at my throat and noticed that the back of my mouth (I think thats the tonsils) are red, some days its worse than others. I thought it could be mono but I dont have any other symptoms. I know some STDs show symptoms of a sore throat but I dont think its that either, and I dont have anything on the inside of my mouth. I dont have a fever, swollen lymph glands, fatigue, cough, headache...
Avatar n tn for 3 days i had a sore throat with white dots with fever so i went to see the doctor and he prescribed pencillin. he didn't take a culture. i developed a rash so he told me to quit it and then prescribed erythromycin. by the next day my fever had gone, i felt that i really didn't have an infection, so i decided not to pick up the antibiotic. (no health insurance!
Panda I'm not coughing, yet. Nose is running a little. I touch my neck and it's a little sore. I feel my glands might be a little swollen. I've been taking Alka Seltzer Plus cold medicine. I've gargled with warm salt and water as well. Is there something else you could recommend or should I go to the doctors?
938921 tn?1257299856 was really nervous and took hiv test at 4 and 6 weeks=negative. at week 6-7 had a sore throat wich just wont go away. 2 doctors took a look inside my throat and could not see anything (no redness no swollen glands) my quastion is can a sore throat that goes on more than 2-4 weeks be a symptom of HIV? if it was, can doctors see anything? had no fever... please help i promise i wont post again.
Avatar f tn Ended up in hospital for 2 days on a drip because I was dehydrated and couldn't keep any food or drink down myself. Thankfully I'm out now and everything's ok with the baby but my throat is so sore and I'm constantly coughing.
Avatar n tn How ever I have had no sore throat and no fever. Now all the glands on both sides of my throat are sore, but not swollen. I have read a lot on swollen glands being an early symptom of hiv, but I am not clear on what sore glands with no sore throat means. None of my lymph glands feel enlarged. Is it possible these symptoms could be ARS? The whole time I figured it was just a bacterial infection that would go away, but it still hurts.
Avatar f tn he says the sore throats, stomach cramps and fatigue are all signs of stress and believes Im on the edge of depression (!) but when I have looked into these symptoms myself, they are so varied it could be a number of things including ME/CFS... Im sorry, I don't know what the second reply means...
Avatar n tn The saliva glands under my tongue were also sore. A few days into the sore throat I developed a small rash on my right arm on the inside of the elbow. Approximately a dozen small pimples, light pink to red. They didn't itch, but scratching or squeezing caused them to get a dark center. One week later the sore throat is mostly gone and the rash is beginning to fade. I am terrified now, though I did not start that way.
Avatar m tn right after i had a soar throat and i took myself to hospital 3 days later i had an abssesed throat and everyone is telling me to sue my dentist???
