Avatar m tn N swollen glass or anything like that.
Avatar m tn My glands in my neck (just under jaw bone and down side of neck) have had a dull ache for the last week or so. i havent acquired a sore throat and feel fine in myself although sometime have had headaches as well. Today the right side of my groin has started a dull ache as well...could these be connected due to the glands in the areas... no other glands appear to aching (armpit and stomach) I have just been taking ibuprofen for the time being.
Avatar n tn I had a heavy cough about 3 weeks ago that has since faded. Since then, I have experienced moving discomfort from my left ear, to the angle of my jaw on the left side, and now stiffness / general discomfort in my neck under my jaw. My throat is pink, but tonsils are swollen. The left side of my tonsil wall is wavy, instead of the normal smooth. The top of one of the "waves" on the left side has a small white crest that looks like a cancor sore.
1683208 tn?1305124695 you have lymph glands in the same area on either side of your neck below your jaw. if it is your lymph glands one or both can be swollen for several different reasons, most commonly when you have allergies but also when you are sick or have an infection. DO NOT push or poke and glands on any part of your body!
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).
Avatar m tn The day the first symptom started was a red tingling throat, which was hardly noticable. No glands were swollen until about 5-6 days later. It started under my chin and jaw. Then 2 days later they were on the back of my neck and underneath my arm pits(same day). My whole neck on the sides was swollen, but it didnt feel like lymph nodes. Other places felt like lymph nodes on my neck. The ones on my neck and underarms were small but there were many. These are the only symptoms no rash, no fever.
Avatar n tn I have also had constantly swollen glands at the back left side of the neck and near my left armpit since fall. The upper part of my neck swells up a lot, too, sort of like a huge double-chin running from one end of the jaw to the other. My throat feels tight, like everything inside is swollen and pushing against each other. It doesn't feel like strep and doesn't really hurt. I have been on two different antibiotics -- cephalexin and ???
Avatar f tn I have had a consistant sore throat, bit of ear pain, swollen glands and jaw ache, plus sharp pain in jaw when trying to eat, for over a month now. Dr gave me antibiotics but it hasn't helped. Has anyone else experienced this please?
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 problem is this, and took 3 months with swollen glands in the neck and jaw, I have sore groin and I have a white coating on the tongue that bothers a lot more after dinner, in addition I have a strange pain in the neck but not always, sometimes alone but sometimes will cause me severe headaches and also feel a throbbing in the body. If HIV negative tests ruled out infection, could be another sexually transmitted disease.
Avatar n tn Firstly, it could be a milder type of infectious mononucleosis in which there’s fever, sore throat and swollen neck glands. It is usually a self limiting illness. It is caused by a virus. The second possibility is sialadenitis which means inflammation of the salivary glands present beneath the jaw line. I’ll advise you to consult an ENT specialist who can give you a better idea after the examination. It’s good that your blood reports and thyroid profile is okay. I hope this helps.
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 Um, one more update: both of my submandibular glands are swollen and kinda sore to touch.
1108412 tn?1258343608 but infection is one thing you dont play around with, especially since its effecting the glands in your neck. i would go to my general doctor since the OS hasnt helped. it may actually be the lymph node in the neck thats infected. you never know and it cant hurt to ask. good luck!
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 Hi I am a gay male, I had some throat problems early back last spring just some sorethroat problem due to oral sex i guess and my doctor sorted with some antibiotics which it turned out to be alright. Since last july, i started to have swollen glands only on my neck and ocassional sore throat which comes on and off and i tried various different ways to get rid of it which didnt seem to help a lot.
Avatar n tn hI; are the swollen glands behind the ears on each side of the neck? or you mentioned cheeks. If so it could be TMJ but if behind your ears it could also be your salivary glands. See, if they become swollen more often. mention it to your doctor. There is a disease of the salivary glands call sjogrens syndrome. I pray you do not have that.
Avatar m tn Stiffness of the neck (or glands in the neck ?) and swelling of glands under both armpits (every 3-4 days or so) have remained. Exactly 2 weeks after contact, my parents who are both doctors came to see me on holiday. I told them about my 'mumps-like' symptoms but again i was too embarrassed to tell them about the SW. My father got a WBC differential count done.
Avatar f tn Lymph nodes can be found in a variety of places in the body including the neck and under the jaw and chin. These can become swollen from infection, inflammatory conditions, abscess, or even cancer. When swelling appears suddenly and is painful, injury or an infection ( which is the most common cause) may be considered. On the other hand, enlargement that comes on gradually and painlessly may, in some cases, result from malignancy.
Avatar m tn Hi everyone, I've noticed for the past day now that right under my jaw (left side) and right above my neck, I feel a bump under my skin. I'm not sick or anything, I'm not allergic to anything, or I'm in college and doing the same routine every day. I can sort of feel it, but it doesn't hurt at all. I just googled "bump under jaw" and came across this article: http://www.webmd.
