throat

Avatar f tn Yesterday the glands under my chin (on each side of my throat) have swollen up. The right one is bigger. and my throat is very sore. Is this a problem with lupus or is it just something like allergies. I wouldn't even be wondering about it, but I haven't even been sneezing so far this year with the pollen (very unusual). Just wondering.
483733 tn?1326798446 ve been getting a progressively worse sore throat and today it feels like my throat is swollen and harder to swallow. Is this something I should be concerned about with Lupus?
Avatar f tn It comes with a swollen throat, and the skin on my neck is very hot. When my sore throat goes away, the fever goes away. Along with that, my left eye is bulging and in the corner of both eyes are sore red patches. Should I call my general practitioner or just wait for my appt on friday?
Avatar f tn I'm sorry you haven't been feeling well. It's good that you've got a doctor's appointment to get checked out.

Avatar f tn Starts with sore throat on one side. The next day on the same side I have face pain around my eye, skin pain that goes up into my hairline and headache. I develop scratchy eye pain. The skin is so sensitive around my eye and hairline that it is very painful to touch. This lasts about a week, climaxing on about the 2nd day. I have had this probably 25 times in the past 10 years. A few of those times I had a cold sore on the same side.

742950 tn?1232594165 I guess I will start this off by saying about a month ago I got really sick I had a horrible earache which in turn swelled up the glands in my throat on the same side of my face, and gave me a horrible fever. I went to my school health clinic where I was given a prescription for Ratio-Cefuroxime, which seemed to clear up the problems. Recently I began to get sick again and the glands on one side of my neck started to swell up. I thought that whatever I had before had come back.
1692732 tn?1311437111 I started using breath right strips at night and it has helped some, but as I type I have a bit of a sore throat. I am very curious now if there is more to it.
Avatar n tn Last time my throat swelled up both of my sides felt sore to the touch (or when coughing) just like my throat. For the last week I have been having a rash on both arms. It itches (more at night and in the sun, or after a warm shower) and looks like little pen pricks (red). I have also had high blood pressure every time I have gone into the drs office since the first visit for shingles. High stage 1 hypertension.
Avatar f tn Yes, I do get sore throats as part of my fibro symptoms, however, I also have lupus and sore throats can go along with that also, so for me, it's sometimes difficult to determined which one is causing the problem! And yes, lack of sleep most definitely can/will aggravate fibro symptoms. It's a vicious cycle - we're not sleeping well because we are hurting and we hurt more because we are not sleeping well. UGH! Do you take any type of sleep aid to help you sleep?
Avatar m tn Your sed rate or (ESR) can be high with any cause of inflammation such as Rheumatoid arthritis, anemia, lupus, pregnancy, etc. Do you have a sore throat? Have you had your throat checked for a strep infection? You could also perhaps have mono if you had a sore throat, swollen glands and high fever, fatigue etc. A lot of things will cause high ESR and swollen glands. What other symptoms do you have?
Avatar n tn m wondering, could this be lupus (as my brain MRI was fine) and is there a connection between lupus and autoimmune hepatitis, and how serious is autoimmune hepatitis?
Avatar n tn A month previously I had also begun experiencing extreme fatigue, sore throat, rapid heart rate (this has since cleared), and buzzing and tingling sensations in my lower extremities. We have ruled out MS, vasculitis and lupus. The internist suggested the possibility of undifferentiated ankylosing spondylitis (uAS), as I also developed sore knees and low back pain at around the same time, but the rheumatologist did not seem to agree.

1098999 tn?1276787267 I was wondering if anyone has any insight to the significance of being IgA deficeint and also showing signs of Lupus. How many signs do you have to have in order for a doctor to defnitely diagnose you as having it? As of right now, the dr says I have 7 of the signs....how many is too many? Are there test that should be done to get a positive answer to either one?

Avatar m tn Next, it almost felt like something was stuck in my throat, for days which turned into a sore throat. SO now I have a headache, left chest shoulder, elbow and wrist pain, a tingling/bugs crawling on my scalp and feeling all over, its tough to focus. If I look in the mirror at the right angle I can still see some small lumps on my cheek area right at the top of my facial hair line, and cheeks a a little rosy. I do also notice a random spot or two on my face.
Avatar f tn Hi Karen, I hope you get this b/4 your appt. I'm not sure, but I think that hair falling out is not associated w/ Sjogren's. But it is associated w/ lupus. I have lupus and dry eyes. My Ear/Nose/Throat Dr. thinks I have Sjogren's too, but w/o an elevated sed rate the bioopsy would probably not be positive. He said we needed to do a wait and see approach on the Sjogren's. He had a patient they suspected had Sj. They did a biopsy, which was neg.
Avatar m tn m having a slight sore throat, that comes and goes and shifts between the 2 sides.. The timing of this mild sore throat is too suspicious for a No Risk behavior! A coincidence? Don't you think it's an ARS symptom? And if it is does it come mild or severe? I really appreciate your help, an explained response woul be very helpful to my situation...
211043 tn?1337050701 Anyone here have both endometriosis and lupus? I currently have PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), and just had a laparoscopy done in December which confirmed endometriosis and I had the adhesions removed. I have been battling all sorts of illnesses for years now and never felt right. I keep begging doctors to check me for whatever they can, and they just blow me off. Today, for instance, my glands are huge, my throat is sore and I'm really achy and feel like ****.
Avatar f tn And now there starting to be dry and cracked on top of swollen and sore. And my feet sometimes feel like there being squeezed or tightly bound with pain up my feet threw my legs and its quite painful, I can't move or walk when this occurs. I suffer from regular migraines/headaches and neck stiffness. I am anemic and constantly tired/fatigue. And my appitite is going away again every time I feel my pain returning. Could allthese things be lupus? Or something else entirely?
Avatar m tn hiv, hepatitis, parvo, lymes, cronic fatigue, RA, lupus, autoimmune (no ana present), strep blood work showed very low WBC, low RBC, high sed rate, high c reactive protein, very low vitamin d, please help
Avatar n tn Strange symptoms of on/off (for about 2 days at a time) include left sided tongue pain, left sided sore throat and left sided lymph node tenderness. I have had one sided tongue pain and throat pain many times in the past which I always attributed to sinus infections and it was never with any type of chest/sternal pain. Today the pain is more in the back of my neck, shoulder blade and lower left sternal area/rib cage area.

Today, for instance, my glands are huge, my throat is sore and I'm really achy and feel like ****. This, to some degree, happens several times a week for me. Either lasting all day or just part of the day, sometimes really bad like today, sometimes more mild. I've had mono TWICE and in the last year I had one of the bouts of mono, the flu, several colds and strep.
