Since Saturday I have had the strangest thing going on. Whenever I eat any type of food the lymph glands in my neck near my jawline swell up uncomfortably large. You can actually see the gland in my neck. The glad is very hard, feels like a walnut in my jaw. Once I stop eating, the swelling will go down within about half an hour to about a pea size. It has stayed pea sized ever since, unless and until I eat again. I've taken to drinking shakes and water, they cause only minimal swelling. I don't have any trouble swallowing or breathing when this happens. It doesn't necessarily hurt, unless I try to keep eating at which time it does get uncomfortable to continue. I thought perhaps an allergy to some food at first, but I have tried all different kinds of foods and have the same reaction. I don't have any kind of infection in my throat that I know about. No pain in my throat. No tooth infection that I'm aware of. I haven't been able to find out what could possibly cause this or what to do about it and since I don't have insurance I don't want to go to the doctor unless i have to. Does anyone have any idea what could be going on here? Any helpful suggestions would be great!Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
