Had URI, 103 F fever, bad muscle aches, etc. for four days last week. Revovered from that but awoke this morning with parootid glands swollen up like balloons...very tender & painful. Doc barely noted 'em when I went in, gave me Rx for 385 mg Amoxicillin.
These hurt like Helll and resemble mumps...but I'm immune to Mumps as result of being infected with it when 10 years old.
No fever, BP OK, no other nodes or glands appear to be swollen.
Ideas? Should I get a second opinion?
