Avatar m tn Today its still swollen. I was wondering if its normal to have swelling in the eye with mono, and if swollen glands on only one side of the head is normal. Also, if there anyway to bring the swelling down?

Avatar n tn My daughter is 19 and has been plagued with swollen lymph glands in her neck for many years. After several ultrasounds, nothing shows as being abnormal. She was diagnosed years ago with Epstein-Barr twice and mononucleosis twice. Her mono symptoms are gone, but a very recent blood test detected her as still having an active case.
Avatar m tn I have had sore, swollen glands in my neck for over 3 weeks. My Dr. agreed they were swollen but ruled out lymphoma as I had had some blood tests but they were done before I had these symptoms. I don't feel it would be lymphoma, but I thought maybe some kind of virus as I am running a low grade fever from 99.3 to 100.3. My "normal" is usually 97. I was taking an antibiotic (Bactrim) for an abscess I had on my buttock caused by a bee sting probably. Another Dr.
Avatar n tn I have been just diagnosed with swollen glands. I do not know how long I had it because I went to my doc 2 years ago and he said I had a disc problem in my neck so I just learned to live with the pain. Lately, my neck seemed swollen so I got a 2nd opinon from my old family dr. He is sending me for a cat scan and referring me to a surgeon. The only symptoms I have other than the swelling is when I walk, I get pain like a knife cutting my neck.
Avatar n tn Since then I've continued to run fevers (99s-100s) even on Tylenol, and I'm sleeping more than usual (example, 10+ hours a night when I normally sleep less than 7-8, plus doing - well, pretty much nothing all day because I don't feel up to it). I don't have the classic swollen glands that I can tell (one debatable area on the right side of my neck, which is iffy), and my throat's only been mildly sore for a day or two out of this timeframe, but could I possibly have mono?
Avatar f tn Hello, I am a 23 year old female with swollen glands... I have had swollen glands for about 3 years now. Occasionally some of them will decrease in swelling, but they will swell up again and the majority of the time are swollen. I had my tonsils out in July of 2009 because the Doctor thought I was having infections and that was the cause of the swollen glands... but they are still swollen. I have one under my left clavicle.
Avatar n tn I too have swollen glands and I am 33-----it stretched from the bottom right of my neck to the top right of my head-----I did have to see my doctor every three days to keep tabs on them----he gave me a antibiotic saying that it was some sort of bad infection the glands are still some swollen------but he said that they will take a while to go down due to the fact that is the way your body fights off infections-----I did not run fever either---I did have a very stiff neck though----give it some ti
Avatar m tn The glands in my neck (under my jaw) have been swollen for about 4 months now. They have never really hurt. But i've been getting sick (mainly just symptoms of a cold. Runny nose, post nasal drip or a headache a few times. And once i had a sore throat) off and on the whole time. Though, when i do get better i still have mucus that i'm hawking up throughout the day (its usually clear or bright yellow). I've been given antibiotics twice but it mainly just takes away my headaches and stuff.
Avatar m tn 3 (Celsius scale), swollen glands in neck and armpits which some of them ache. No nose or throught symptoms. Had an HIV, HBV, HCV, EBV test - all negative (at about 4 weeks). I have two questions to ask: If this is ARS would the HIV test turn reactive by now ( due to I have the symptoms already)? Do you think I am at risk so I should take the test again in 6 weeks? Please help me - I am very anxious.
Avatar f tn No fever, no vomiting, and just tender swollen glands. Ironically our neighbor does in fact have mono, but I have not even been around him whatsoever... and no one else in my family who were around him are having symptoms. Is it possible I could still have that having not been around him? I can't imagine how! I know it can be passed by coughing, sneezing, and not just kissing. Yet, I still have not been around him for him to cough or sneeze around me. I also do not have a fever...
Avatar f tn I was just wondering if anyone knew if it was possible to get mono stuck in the lymph nodes in your neck. I was diagnosed with mono in May, and have been sick ever since. Have had fevers, not your normal fever, but usually around 97, been unbelievably tired, and have had drenching night sweats-not every night but usually at least several times a week. I had a ct scan andit didnt show any masses just that i had a few enlarged lymph nodes.
Avatar n tn The prednisone helped my swollen tonsils, but the glands in my neck keep getting worse. No ibuprofen helps the pain of it, which is causing me a lack of sleep. Is there anything else I have possibly overlooked? I'm not exhausted all the time at all. my entire neck is killing me and behind my ears and head, occasionaly my jaw and armpits too. The headaches are barely managable and I am not sure what else it could be.
Avatar n tn My daughter (10 Yrs Old) has had swollen red tonsils and swollen glands in her neck for about 3 weeks. Her doctor stated she was positive she had mono but the all the tests show negative. Due to the glands still be swollen at 3 weeks and no improvement with antibiotics doctor is still convinced she has mono. Should I be seeking a second opinion? Any reason to be concerned?
Avatar m tn 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. Days go by and some days symptoms better but most days stay the same. Gland swelling never goes down. What the heck is wrong with me? Had blood tests, head MRI, check ups, etc and nobody can find anything. I feel crappy every day. I am also fatigued every day even though I seem to sleep all night.
Avatar n tn Also the glands in my neck are still swollen from when i had strep. That was over a month ago. I had taken prednisone because of the swelling and weakness, but they never went back to normal. But they dont hurt. And im still tired all the time. I also had bronchitis, and was being treated for it when i developed strep. I was taking only azithromycin for the bronchitis. The strep developed about 4 days after starting the azithromycin. There was something mentioned about a cat..
Avatar n tn I have been sick for 1 month, swollen glands all around my neck, very sore throat (low), ears pinging and sore to lay on pillow, open mouth only slighly. Have been on a z pack for 5 days, then leviquin 500mg x2 daily for 10 days, then to hospital who gave me an antibiotic shot for strep throat??? then to Barnes where they called me following a CT scan treating me for tonsilitis with 1000 mg of penicillan. No Tonsils since I was 3 and they have not grown back.
Avatar f tn Hi... I have what feels like a "chronic" sore throat and inflammation of the tonsils and glands on my neck are often inflamed. My tonsils are so large they're classified as "4" on the tonsil grading scale as they touch eachother. It makes it difficult to swallow and to breathe. Along with this, I also have a stuffy nose and am unable to breathe through the nose. The glands on my neck are very swollen and large, to the point that they are visible in size.
Avatar n tn I have had constant swollen glands in my neck for almost 2 years since I moved to Idaho. Recently I developed acid reflux. I am in to health and I have been taking apple cider vinegar daily, to help reduce it. I have had a history of candida which I am also treating naturally. I have seen MD's and I have seen natural pathic doctors and no one knows what it is. I am getting frustrated with the swollen glands, They are very uncomfortable and make swallowing difficult.
Avatar m tn I had noticed the glands in my neck were swollen and brought it to the attention of the ER DR, but noticed after the fact that it isn't just the glands in my neck that are swollen. The glands in my neck, armpits, and groin are swollen. NOTE: neck and groin seem to be swollen the most. also the left side is more swollen for both. I am under a lot of stress and am suffering from a pretty severe depression and am wondering if this could be part of the cause?
Avatar f tn I noticed that through this process on two glands on the right side of my neck got swollen. My doctor told me to take the anti-biotics and they should go down, however, they are still swollen, I am pretty sure that the bottom one got smaller but not the upper one. I have been feeling dizzy and getting headaches but I also think that I am getting another infection of some sort. 1. Is it possible for glands to stay swollen? 2. Can my sinus problems be causing my other symptoms? Thanks!
Avatar n tn I have had swollen glands in my neck for the past 6 months (at least). At first, I thought that my impacted wisdom teeth that were probably getting infected were the cause. I had them out in October and it is now the middle of March and my glands are still swollen. I went to my physician who ordered a cbc, thyroid, and mono tests and everything came back fine. She never could give me an explaination for these symptoms.
Avatar n tn Home Care If you have swollen lymph nodes, the focus is on treating the underlying cause. Soreness in lymph glands usually disappears in a couple of days without treatment, but the nodes may not return to normal size for several weeks after the infection has cleared. Generally, if glands are painful, it is because they swell rapidly in the early stages of fighting an infection.
Avatar n tn I have the same problem. Gland in left side of my neck has been swollen since I was diagnosed with Mono 7 months ago. It is giving me discomfort and a swelling feeling. Just like tonberry it is also pulsating. It obviously my pulse doing that but why doesn't it look like that on the right side of my neck where I have no swollen glands. PLEASE HELP IM REALLY SCARED.
Avatar n tn I have been concerned about swollen glands in my armpit groin and neck for about a month. My friend, who is a family practice physician confirmed that my glands were swollen in my neck and armpits..I did not have him check my groin but I know they are. He seemed scared for me and mentioned cancer in passing. After doing research on the web everything is leaning to HIV. Now I am scared too. I have had unprotected sex with 4 women in the past year. Casusal encounters.
Avatar f tn But 2 weeks later i all of a sudden stared experiencing fatigue, loss of appetite, swollen glands in my neck and chin, chills, night sweats, muscle and joint pain, and every morning i went to use the bathroom my stool was loose and pale in color. I was wondering what could be the cause of that cause i was in good heath before that happened. The fatigue and muscles and joint pain are still there though. I went to the doctor but she can't find anything wrong with me.
Avatar m tn I woke up today with painful swollen glands on the right side of my neck. Tonight, I can also feel it in my ear, along with the back right side of my tongue. The pain in the glands is so sore, painful to the touch. My ear and tongue are nowhere near as painful. Any ideas or clues? I appreciate any responses :) I am new to this site and the forums, and will fill in my profile soon!
Avatar n tn Activities associated with heavy alcohol use (poor nutrition, disordered sleep, physical exhaustion) however may be but, even then, are only minor contributors to risk for any infections. 3. Swollen glands in your neck would be a rare manifestation of hepatitis B or C, both of which can be readily tested for if your doctor feels testing is indicated. 4. Hepatitis B and C would not normally cause a swollen spleen, if yours is swollen (see above). 5. What to do- go see your doctor.
