Avatar f tn A week ago the right underside of my tongue started hurting like I cut it but there's no injury. As well it was hard to swallow and my neck on that side felt like it was sprained. My glands on that side are swollen too. Please tell me what this may be?

Avatar m tn have you ever had your thyroid levels checked. When I got my thyroid removed it was because the glands in my throat had gotten swollen to the point I could hardly swallow. I hope you find out whats going on and that's its nothing really bad.
Avatar f tn If you are having trouble breathing, then please see a doctor soon before it becomes an emergency. You could have some sort of bacterial infection or virus, like mononucleosis (EBV), strep throat, sinus infection or some other upper respiratory infection. Your thyroid could be enlarged due to goiter either from hyper- or hypo-thyroidism. Your parathyroid gland could be enlarged. You could be having an allergic reaction to food, medication or something else in your environment. Goodluck!
1053776 tn?1253998390 Hi, I`ve recently noticed 2 lumps in my neck on both sides in the same place (not in the skin, under the skin). They are hard an seem to be attached to tissue. They are about 4mm in diameter. They also seem to move slightly. I will attach a picture so you can see the location.
Avatar m tn Hello. I'm becoming increasingly worried about swollen glands in my neck. The swelling is located on either side of my neck, roughly half an inch below the mastoid process (these might be the upper cervical lymph nodes but I'm not sure). They can't be seen, but when I feel my neck they feel hard. I've had them now for about three weeks. My only other symptoms: a slight sore throat that comes and goes, and a very infrequent cough.

Avatar f tn its more of a discomfort (like a pressure) and minor pain however, I feel like when swallow, i need to lower my neck down and to the right otherwise it would strain. Sometimes I will feel fatigue when talking, like I've been singing at a concert for hours. I assume some other digestive issues I've had is related such as regurgitating food when burping and having a feeling of an air bubble in my chest and dissatisfaction when burping.
Avatar n tn I am a 34 year old female, suffering from severe fatigue, muscle weakness and various symptoms for several years, diagnosed with fibromyalgia and then Lyme (no positive Lyme test). Today I noticed I have what feels like a fixed, hard lump on the left side of my thyroid (I think it's my thyroid anyway--in the center of my throat).It's not visible through the skin or anything but if I use my thumb and forefinger to press on the area where the thyroid is I feel it there.
Avatar n tn She is not having any trouble drinking, eating or barking and is acting normal and is not squirming when we are feeling her neck to check the glands. This morning she is still swollen and I gave her another dose of benedryl but I am not sure what this could be caused by. Should we take her to the doctor to get antibiotics or see if the Benendryl takes it away completely? Has anyone heard of or experienced something similar with their dogs?
Avatar m tn I have 1 swollen gland on the left side of my neck.
Avatar m tn The glands on my neck just under my jaw line are visibly pulsating on both sides. I have seen plenty of posts about swollen glands but not about pulsating ones. Would the pulsating possibly be a sign of infection like swollen glands are? Any help with this would be great.
Avatar f tn Infection can cause your glands to swell up bad, and when glands are swollen in your neck, it often causes pain when you move your neck or touch the gland with your fingers. Yup I agree with Evie, check your throat for little white spots... if you have tonsils the spots will be on them or if not, they will be on the back of your throat. Get better soon!

Avatar f tn I have had an FBC which all came back fine and an ENT has put me forward for an Fine Needle Biopsy as she thinks I need it to see what shape the glands are? I used to think that this was all due to infection but my glands have been swollen for so long and spreading of swelling is worse I am now doubting it - could this be something more sinister? Is anyone experiencing or has anyone experienced anything similar?

Avatar f tn About 8 months ago I discovered that my dog had swollen glands in her neck. I went to two different vets who took a sample of the cells on THREE different occassions and each time is came up "Suspicious" but not definative. After 1 day of antibiotics the swelling went down by about 75% however never fully reduced. I notice again that the size has increased and she is not eating as normal and less active.
