Throat pain glands

Common Questions and Answers about Throat pain glands


1373434 tn?1284820769 I suffer from anxiety and as part of that I am constantly paranoid I'm going to get throat infections. Though a few years of inspection, I've learned I can force a lot of my throat out to be displayed. I can see behind my tonsils, and It looks purple. There are also white patches and I get a lot of lumps on my tonsils. I went to the doctors and the doctor told me I had normal tonsils for a 23 year old, but I disagree. Does anyone else inspect their throat? What can they see?

Avatar n tn Over the course of the day my symptoms worsened, I had a severly sore throat, swollen glands, headache, all of my joints ached but mot my muscles and had no fever. The next day I saw my family doctor. He tested for strep, (test was negative). He said my lungs sounded good, no sinus problems and blood pressure was fine. Said he had no idea what it was. I was instructed to take Ibuprofen and chloriseptic spray for thoat to help with pain.
Avatar f tn It has now been a month that my neck glands and my throat glands have been swollen steady. It is not sore, the only pain I feel is when they start to grow bigger, when ever i'm chewing and swallowing it will feel like a pinch sometimes, but not always. I went to my doctor early this week, but he's not sure whether to put my on antibotics for 2 weeks or not because he thinks it could either make it better or make me feel worse.
Avatar n tn everytime i swallow its like needles in my ear and throat. what can i do to reduce the swelling and get rid of the pain. i m currently taking antibiotics. but its been 5 days and the pain does not subside.
Avatar f tn I was told that the nose,ear and throat doctor would probably do that on Monday. If these glands were not painful I would just be ok but there is pain and pressure. Please any advice would help.
Avatar m tn The doctor found no strep but noticed drainage in the back of my throat. I did have ear pain associated with this sore throat. I had ear pain before I started dating this young lady but getting a sore throat shortly after being with here bothered me. Now I have a cold and stuffy nose. Do I need to worry about this illness. Yes I need to be more responsible in my condom use and am dedicated to doing this from now on. But just curious is my illness timing a coincidence?
Avatar f tn It could most probably be tonsillitis and a throat infection. Throat pain, difficulty swallowing, fever, scratchiness in the throat, post nasal drip, malaise and loss of appetite are symptoms of tonsillitis. It can be caused by bacteria like streptococcus or it could be a viral infection. Bacterial infections need antibiotics. Infections in the throat cause lymph node enlargement. As, it is subsiding with the infection, it is the most likely cause.
Avatar f tn Persistent red throat (no pain when swallowing), frequent colds, intermittent feeling of water in left ear, left tooth pain, left arm weakness when left tooth pain occurs, frequent bouts of nausea (no vomiting because I loathe vomiting and will do anything to prevent said occurrence), hormonal imbalances, frequent itching + hives, dry skin, and nasal irritation. Most recently I've been suffering from a horrible flu-like virus that has rendered me nearly useless for 2 weeks.
1548905 tn?1303331009 These days, I found pain swollen glands in my neck, behind my ear and under groin. Today, I went to see the doctor, he confirmed the swollen glands. And he also found I have sore throat, I dont feel anything about it. All the swollen glands cannot be seen by appearance. I dont have fever, no diarrhea, no weight loss. I also did the normal blood test, which showed WBC, RBC and all others are good. I am still concered abou HIV infection. I am wondering the risk of being infected by HIV.
Avatar f tn He said I am just very unfit (which I am). I dont exercise much as I have a lot of lower back and hip pain as well as swollen feet every evening (I sit at a PC for about 11 hours a day working). Last week I noticed a soft swelling middle of my neck front side, between where my collarbones meet (lower than what I think would be thyroid). Its soft and not painful. I cant feel any nodules. It's still smallish but I can notice it. This morning I woke up feeling like I swallowed a marble.
329165 tn?1515471990 Hello and hope you are doing well. Your symptoms could be due to a post nasal drip. This could build up during the course of the day irritating the throat. The post nasal drip could be due to a sinus infection, a cold or a chronic allergy. It could be sinusitis, if it is accompanied by nasal stuffiness and facial pain or pressure. Post nasal drip could also be due to allergens. These are substances like pollen, dust, animal dander, certain foods, insect venoms and certain medications.
Avatar f tn I’m 17 years old and for at least 5 months I’ve been having shortness of breath. Last month I noticed pain/swelling on the right side of my throat (external) and it kind of went away but recently returned along with difficulties breathing while lying down (especially at night) and any type of exercise. I’ve also had a cough for about 2-3 months that has also worsened and is very mucus-y after I eat. I’m not sure what to do.
8830199 tn?1400097262 So any way I started with a sore throat . Then my collarbone glands inflamed. I took cold and flu and such ,on the fifth day my glands went down (not inflamed any more ) but still I have a little cough and chest pain . So I'm asking could this be related to an std ? Appreciate any input , thanks .
Avatar f tn I have constant (pain is rated 8 out of 10) sharp stabbing pain on the right side off my head. Which is making my glands swell up i dont know how to treat it. Is there any thing you suggest i do?
Avatar m tn Sinus allergies also cause neck muscle tension and pain that spreads to the scalp, causes lymph nodes to swell and put pressure on nerves that cause ear and jaw pain. Allergies can trigger pain in the face, ear, neck, head/scalp and jaw/tmjd, as well as put pressure on the perotid glands and salivary glands. I've had some triggered by using prednisone to help treat sinus and lung infections.
Avatar f tn I'm worried about an infection in general like a sore throat and swollen glands and stuff.
Avatar f tn The sublingual and submaxillary (also called the submandibular) glands empty into the mouth through ducts under the tongue. Swelling of these glands due to blockage of these ducts leads to interference of production and drainage of saliva and pain and irritation. It may be due to some obstruction like stone or tumor, inflammation and infection. You need certain investigations like blood count, sialography, sialendoscopy and ultrasound or CT scan of the area to confirm the diagnosis.

Avatar f tn For the last 7-8 months, Ive been experiencing inner ear pain (below the earlobe, down the side of the neck - which is quite severe), and neck pain, at the front of my throat along the right side of my windpipe. At first, I thought it was my thyroid - so I had it checked and it was fine. My GP of course, made me feel like I was out of my mind and told me to take vitamins.
Avatar f tn I have swollen gland on my left hand side of my throat, I have no tonsils, but when it really gets really swollen I find it very hard to breath and swallow, please help.
Avatar m tn Post 15 days I developed sore throat, swollen glands behind the ears and on the neck (though it is not that visible), on an off headache, muscle pain behind the neck and little pain in the arm and I could feel the lymph glands under the skin a bit inflamed. I went to a doctor, however did not mention about the sex with the call girl, doctor looking at the sore throat and swollen glands has given a dose of amoxicillin.
